My new Zetec-S

Hi All,

I picked up my new Focus last weekend, and it's been a whirlwind romance ever since.

I absolutely love the car. Everything about it is soooo much better than my previous Mk1.

I went from a 2.0l Petrol Mk1, to a 1.6tdci Mk3, and i'm absolutely loving it. The economy on the car is great! currently about 48mpg over 500 miles so far (not too shabby from the 22mpg i came from!)

I also think the Zetec-S is beautiful. I've had many compliments on it's looks and yeah, it's definitely fair to say i'm in love! I think the 18in wheels really suit the vehicle.

There's a couple of things I want to do to the car. I've swapped over to a Sony radio, and didn't like the Silver radio surrounds/air con bits, so got some black bits for them, and will be looking to get some interior LED's for the dome lights, and some white LED's for the Side lights, and puddle lamps in the next week or so.

Eventually i guess i'll buy some white headlamps/fogs as well, as they are disappoitningly yellow... but not yet...

If anyone has any advice on some simple mods, or some nice LED's they could recommend, then i'd love to hear what you've got to say!

Thanks very much,

Michael (loving his new car)

The zetec s looks great, and good colour choice. I wish North America had the options that you guys get.

I would guess its the same one we get, we just have the touchscreen in place of the buttons.

Gorgeous car.

I would love to have that lip kit, the mesh grilles, headlights, and the spoiler.

The painted rocker panels look great. Our Titanium should have them.

I like the wheels but I'm not sure that I would like to clean them.

Ahhh, the grass is always greener, isn't it?

Pretty much everything lol. If it were available out here, that would have been the exact car I'd buy. Now because of ford I'll have to stick to piecing it together myself.
