Ben,

Always go Ford (Motorcraft) on Zetec HT leads.

I've heard to omany stories of aftermarket (be it cheap ebay or Magnecor performance ones) not working after a while on the Zetec.

Just my tuppence worth ;)

Probably fairly expensive from Ford. That's why most people go aftermarket with 'performance' type leads. You might be able to pick up a set of BOSCH leads cheaper though. Good make too as everyone knows. Buttttttttttttttttt go to ford and see how much they want, might not be that bad!

Ford ones always worked for me. They weren't anymore expensive last time I checked.

French fact, the C2 doesn't have ht leads.
