Every time, and I mean every time, I get out my car and touch the body I get a massive and very painful electric shock, To the extent you can see the spark fly from the car to me. Yesterday I took the key out the ignition and standing with the door open I went to put the key back into the ignition and, as the key touched the ignition barrel, the spark was so strong there was a loud crack with a visible blue electric arc.
Surely this isn't right? What would be causing that?
A few photos taken quickly with my phone. Zetec S Ecoboost in race red. Extras include privacy glass and auto wipers/lights and I have changed the bulbs to silver indicator bulbs, blue side lights and Osram Nightbreaker Plus Dipped Beam. Looking at how to upgrade the DRL/Full Beams as well. Have also fitted chrome tax disk holder and at some point I am going to fir an S badge to the front grille similar to the new ST.
Thinking of upgrading the speakers in my new Ecoboost Zetec S. Does anyone know much about this for this car? How easy would it be to fit them? I would ideally want to replace at least the front ones, however I may decide to fit some in the parcel shelf to replace the rear ones. What would be involve with this?
Have the new MK8 Zetec S and was wondering how much of a difference there is other than the obvious front grille. I am thinking of getting door sill protectors but can only find MK7 ones. Are these likely to be the same?
