#513419 Paint "bubbling" On Alloys

Posted by ayrshiredude on 18 August 2015 - 08:01 PM

Update - went to my Ford Dealer yesterday and he made a call and then told me I was going to get 2 new wheels :)  Going in for its first service next week so he is going to take photos then and arrange to get the new wheels.

#427953 Help With Aftermarket Headlights

I bought something similar for a previous car and after a lot of work and effort had to return them as I was never able get them aligned correctly.  Even after a garage tried as well.

I never quite see the point of lowering a car so it scraped over every speed bump.

daft question does it actually do anything other than look good?  Does it come painted in the glossy black?

#410514 Suggestions For Front Speakers

You need to rip from the original CD to Flac.  Converting from an already compressed file is not going to improve anything, you can't put back whats already been taken out lol.


A Song in Flac format should be exactly the same quality as the original CD as its Lossless.

#397627 Probably Crazy But...

So got some quoted back from carwow.  Priced the ST3 but even though the best price was under £17000 it still a bit too much I think.  So I've tried again with the ST2 and see what prices come back.  Does anyone know if the Ford £750 deposit and the free Style pack would still apply and would they still give the decent trade in?

How does carcow work?  I have existing car which I will need to trade in

Thanks guys


I'm only getting the paint and the light/wiper/mirror extra pack so not as much as paying for the 3 i don't think. 


Arnold clark have valued my ZS at £10600 with £9770 still on my finance.  So that, with the £750 Ford deposit and me paying £250, makes a deposit of £1829.99.  I'm currently paying £227 p/m and this would take it up to £299.70 p/m


I went to my small local dealer and spoke to him about it to see what he could do.  He said that basically the car was being sold at cost price.  He said he could do it for the same price though as they can make money by referal for the finance and if they make monthly targets etc.  He did offer to give me free Supagard paint protection, which is worth £200 retail, to get the sale.


Any thoughts?

Thanks guys, Do you think this seems a reasonable deal or can I push for more off it?

So I've been reading here about some of you having traded in your Zetec s for the ST and became jelous :P   So I phoned my dealer today to ask about the feasbility of doing the same myself.  He went away and called me back with the following offer.


So I put £1000 deposit down in March 2013 for a new ZetecS with privacy glass and auto wipers/lights/rear mirror.  I am paying £227 p/m on a 2 1/2 year Options plan.  My car has just under 8500 miles on the clock and is in great condition.


I was surprised when he told me that I had equity on the car, all be it around £600.  He has told me that with Fords £750 depost and a £250 deposit from me I would be looking at around £300 p/m for the ST2 on a 3 year Options plan.  Now Obviously I haven't went into great detail yet, and no doubt will hopefully be able to bring that down a but, but I wanted to know what you guys thought.  At the moment as well you get the Style pack? free which is grey alloys, painted calipers and illuminated kick plates.

#248667 Some Pics Of My Nice New Zetec S

Posted by ayrshiredude on 02 April 2013 - 05:20 PM

Added the S badge to the front and rear of the car.  Darved out a space in the front Grille so it would sit flush similar to the ST's.  What do you think?
