Hi all,
i have just collected my new/used car about 3 hours ago! and i'm very happy with it.
I browsed through this forum, as this is my first C-Max and so thanks to you all for pointing me in the right direction!
I was looking for a higher spec car but saw this 54 lx, with 32k on the clock at a ford main dealer for a good price and thought that i can doa few mods myself as time and funds allow.
now i have the car back home, ive noticed that the steering wheelk is all black, should it have 4 Chrome (effect) plates on the spokes? are they missing? Or does the lx not come with that trim?
Thanks for your help
Al

I think from other cars I have seen that the LX has a plain black wheel as standard.

All black wheel is the cheaper one for the lower spec levels. I think....the silver one is actually a leather wheel (I know mine is).
If you get one off ebay you can retrofit it. I got one for 30 quid....(dealership wanted 200 odd quid!)
I had to upgrade mine to a top spec one as I needed the cruise buttons for my CarPC.

First, welcome to the club.

Second, a 54 plate LX definitely comes with a plain steering wheel. But don't fret, you will find that it works a treat and will get you round almost every bend without fail.

Hi mate , From all the C MAX cars i`ve seen the L.X is the next one above the Style so extras are a bit thin , A.c elecy windows etc but no alloys ,Global opening windows , sat nav , auto lights etc . Still look nice though so not all bad .
