OP, the car looks amazing! Love the wheels and the lip kit the Zetec S gets, as stated I wish we got it here!
must. find.

ciprianp Yup.. it changes the whole sound system. From 6 speakers to 10.
In addition, here we get the 4,2 tft screen instead of the 3,5 matrix one(I don't really know if that's the case in GB).

I absolutely love your car. I'm quite sad that i didn't order the skirts but it was optional and it costed about 750 euros, so i delayed the purchase till next year. Hope you enjoy it.

Chickenmuffn Does that Sony head unit add any functionality? Or is it just a visual upgrade?

What good would a 6-speed lighted knob do for you here in the US?

MikeLondon I got the illuminated gear knob from Ford direct... Saw it in the brochure and thought it looked amazing... also saw some illuminated scuff (door sill) plates... but they were over 200 saw decided against them for now...

I really, really would like the MFT (obviously with the caveat of it working properly... ;) haha) but then I guess most people would like it if it worked!

I'll look up the ford part number for the gear knob when i get the chance and post it on here.

Nice idea with the blacking out of the fog bezels for sure... Weirdly, I currently do quite like the chrome look, but i'm sure that may change in time, and as i said previously I really like the idea of the high contrast white/black look all over.

The pin-striping might look pretty crazy on the honey-comb grille... i hadn't thought of doing anything to that, but that might change now! haha would really make it stand out!

Dialed Beautiful car.

Maybe some white pinstriping on the grill?

+1 for blacking out the fog light bezels. I used some Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy (black, of course) to black mine out and they turned out great. It really helps the appearance of the car, since the chrome looks very cheap. My car is a tux black but I think it will look great on yours too.

Cheers for the suggestions Twenty... I like the idea of contrasting Black and White... something I may well look at doing in the (near) future!
