  1. Hi guys Welcome to my progress thread! Well, my old mk6.5 was written off unfortunately and my friend who works for Ford recommended the new Zetec S to me, and after a few weeks of looking around I decided it was the sensible choice for me. I picked up my Panther Black Zetec S from a Ford garage on the 31st of October, it's the 1.0 Ecoboost 125ps, 1 Owner from new, 6,471 miles, one service on it and there extras consist of; Privacy glass, Upgraded 17" alloys, City Pack and Start/Stop pack. It was one of the ford guy's girlfriends car, only sold it back to them because they got an upgrade because of his job, so something nice and legit, and no dodgy reasons! I don't have a proper list of what I want to do just yet, but a Stage 1 Revo remap and new exhaust system is on the cards. But for now I'll just be adding bits on here and there but will be sure to post about it! Ordered a pack of LED's last night so hopefully they're going to turn up some point this week. Here are some of the photos the day I officially bought her! And the day after, picking her up! Couldn't quite believe how clean it was... Thanks for reading :)
  2. Hi all, I recently acquired a Fusion 2 1.4TDCi, 2003 with 75k on the clock. It has service history to 55k, loads of receipts etc for work carried out. It recently (just before I bought it) had its injector seals replaced. However, I've noticed very noticeable black smoke pouring out upon acceleration and I topped up the fuel and I've done 200 miles so far and it's already at the half way marker so possibly poor fuel economy. I've done some research and my first port of call is going to be blanking the EGR valve to see if that helps reduce the smoke. Is there anything else I should be looking at immediately before handing it over to my mechanic? I'm a novice at car repair and most of what I know is from Google/YouTube/Haynes etc. Thanks in advance.
  3. Looking for some advice here... currently have my standard 16" Titanium alloys that are now showing a little bit of scuffing given they're just over three years old. looking to freshen them up by powder coating in either satin or gloss black, and also looking to lower the car by around 30mm, so question is do I get the existing wheels powder coated...or dig deep and shell out for larger rims in black? I can get the existing wheels done by a friend for just over £100 so this is also a factor. I keep hearing black cars shouldn't really have black wheels but I "think" I like that look but certainly open to opinion, once they're done, they're done! Lol Any photographs others may wish to share to get an idea of how the car might look would be great...look forward to hearing from you all soon
  4. Hi again Guys & Girls , so i was gonna do some performance mods but you guys have shown me i cant hope for much with my 1.2L style + ahh well i guess i can live with that :P, but not one to like leaving things as they are im now looking into visual mods more. As previously intended i think im going to go for a Pumaspeed Body kit with the Excessive spoiler... because well i can really. http://www.pumaspeed...k_911.jsp&pic=6 as my car is black obviously i will be matching the body kit to that. i think im going to go for a Black theme with bits of yellow and carbon fibre dotted around it for example im thinking of getting these carbon fibre mirror caps http://www.mountunes...Fibremirrorcaps and a yellow lacker for my brake calipers because i thought it would add a nice bit of colour without looking too tacky but hey its my first car so in my opinion tack is allowed ;) http://www.demon-twe...-engine-lacquer I also think im going to get these alloys from mountune (although i was hoping for advice as my wheels currently are 15" but these are 17" so obviously new tyres would be needed but i was thinking that would probably affect the speedo too ? would it not?) so yeah what would i do about that? and is it even possible http://www.mountunes...une--MS--Alloys unless you guys can suggest something else (maybe cheaper?) i was wondering if you guys had any ideas for the inside of the car? Any comments would be great so thanks in advance guys

    Which Fiesta?

    Going to look into getting a new car sometime soon, I've spent the last 2 days looking at the 140 bhp 1L ecoboosts, and the 123 Zetec S, but there's the 1.6L versions too, what one would you lot suggest, and why?

  7. I'm am sorry for what you are about to read😂 I am a rookie Hi, I am 17 and as my first car I have a Ford Fiesta Zetec 2010 black. I have never been into cars but now I own one I am constantly looking at things to improve or make the car look better on the eye. I have put a zetec s spoiler on but am unsure about anything else? Been looking at diffusers for the rear end but haven't got a clue how to fit it or if any garage would be fine doing it? If so what price? Also exhausts anyone know any cheap but well made ones? If so would it be expensive to get fitted at a standard garage. Also My alloys are silver have been looking to get blacked out, would it make the car look any better? Any other ideas? Wont let me upload any photos unfortunately Cheers

    New car slight problem!

    I've just realised I've been posting everything in the wrong section, apologies to anyone and everyone🙄 ANYWAY.. Ive very recently bought a 65 Plate Fiesta Black Edition (140ps) the car is unbelievable compared to my last Fiesta Edge (60ps) - I know. But there's a slightly annoying problem with the seatbelt, I've managed to make it work (sometimes) but I'd like to get it solved. This the post:

    New car! Slight problem

    I've done it! Bought a 65 Fiesta Black Edition! But there's only one problem, been back to the garage but they want it back in on Monday to see if they can resolve it, but i think it's easy enough to fix myself. The passenger side seat belt won't come out, it's jamming as if it's been pulled hard, even when it's being pulled gently, it comes if you wiggle it and push and pull back, but it's obviously not as it should be.. any ideas? PLEASE😏

    Black Bonnet Lip??

    Evening all, Does anyone know where I can acquire a black bonnet lip or more specifically a gloss black bonnet lip for my MK7 Fiesta? I've been looking on eBay gumtree etc of cars being sold for parts but most have a grey lip like my current one. Only inquiring as I recently had part of my boot lid wrapped and want to pursue the gloss black theme, however they were unable to wrap those parts due to the material.
  12. Hey there, Wondering if any of you out there can help me... Basically... I have a Ford Fiesta Zetec S Red Edition (2014). In the middle there is a glossy plastic that goes around the gear stick and up to just above the air con where there is a split... This glossy plastic is a pain, mine is a little scratched and it pretty visible (especially me being the perfectionist I am) and also it picks up dust like a sucker! On the fiesta ST this centre part is in a nice slick Matte finish instead. Okay so my actual question: Can this gloss plastic part be removed easily? And if so, can I get the matte plastic (as seen on the ST) to replace it with? (Where would I go about getting this?) Thanks in advance for your help!! Josh :)
  13. Hey! Im new to the owners club, Iv had my fiesta zetec s a while now and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for visual modifications, nothing too drastic just to sharpen the look of my car up! :) I look forward to your replies! Cheers!

    Accidental New Owner

    Hi All, I wanted to test drive a new red or black edition... just to see how it compared to my 150bhp diesel astra, as i wanted a new car in a few months time I was in luck... I managed to find the only dealer within about 20 miles that had one available for a drive. It had just come off the lorry, with 13 miles on the clock Long story short, i'll be picking it up in a couple of weeks and i cant wait! Sure it doesn't have the torque to pull like the astra, but it really didn't feel slow in comparison at all. It's a lot perkier though... just begging to be thrown into corners. Here's a few pics...

  20. Hello chaps, There are two little mods I want to do to my car, the first is a HID conversion, and the second is to hardwire some ambient lighting into the map light for the front footwells and maybe the centre console. I was hoping some of you could give me some advice and/or links to a reliable HID conversion kit (H7 only) and to a good, red, ambient lighting products. Any forum guides that come to mind regarding these two mods would be great too! Thanks in advance!

    Fiesta Zetec Mk6.5

    Hi guys Just bought myself a 2008 Fiesta for driving to work/running about. I'm not planning on making any major modifications to it, just replaced a few bulbs, tinted the windows and stuck some wind deflectors on. So far it's got Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited headlights, Osram Cool Blue Intense sidelights (not as white as I'd hoped, dunno whether to stick some LED's in there instead to replace them), Team Heko Wind Deflectors, tinted rear windows, replaced interior light/boot light and number plate lights with white LED's. Also replaced the horrendous rubber gear gaitor with a leather one! Got some fog lights on the way too should be here soon. Here are some pics quite poor quality will get some better ones and some night time ones when possible!
  24. Relatively New to this kind of thing but I was wondering if anyone has had an aftermarket exhaust fitted to there fiesta Black or Red editions? If so is it worth doing and do they sound half decent :) Cheers
  25. Hello all, I'm due to collect my 61-plate MK7 Fiesta Zetec S this Saturday. As a rookie of these forums I was hoping for some advice regarding my plans for the car! I know I'm keen signing up before i've even got the car, but, sue me i'm excited! :P I'll post some pictures to my profile once I've got the car sparkling clean.. ;) My first plans are: + Fit an Armster armrest. + Remove interior plastics and re-spray (main console black, like facelift models, steering wheel, door handle and vent surround plastics to be red - I'm a black and red kinda guy!) + Respray the brake callipers red. Here's where I need your advice: I've been looking at performance upgrades, and due to the 3 year warranty and servicing I'm getting as part of the deal for my car (from Pilgrims of March, Cambridgeshire - very impressive) I don't want to do anything that will void my warranty. Therefore, Mountune parts are the way to go.. Could anyone who has heard or owns a Catback Exhaust system tell me the increase in sound, and the relative performance difference? Alongside this, i'm looking at fitting the Intake Kit, what performance gains does this produce? Finally, will these make a difference if I get some high-quality sparks? If so, any recommendations? As a new guy, I really appreciate any feedback and assistance! David :D
