Does anyone here have a Zetec car?

Hi

I used to run +2's a few years back and are thinking of trading out of my current Boxster and back into my true love.

My cars are all year round everyday drivers, so I am thinking of a Zetec car this time if I can get anything for my 10k budget (prob not!). I used to struggle in winter with the standard engined cars and even resorted to fitting a Webasto petrol water heater in the nose cone to pre heat the engine.

Do the wheels still have an incorrect offset (stick out too much ) on Zetec cars, and is there anything that can be done about it if they do? How are the cars generally? I really like the idea.

All the best

there have also been a couple Duratec's fitted these days.
Much more free revving engine, with some extra costs $600 roughly. Also much lighter weight, and what Caterham is using.
Born, and brought home from the hospital (no seat belt (wtf)) in a baby!
Find out where the limits are, and start from there
