Looking through the manual it says that some models have them fitted and some don't. A great help!

Before I make a call to either Ford Technical or the dealer can anyone on here tell me if mine would have one? I'd have a look for one on the car myself if I knew what it looked like !!

The answer is probably not, unless you specified it when you ordered it. Your dealer will be able to tell you by looking at the build data on e-cat, or post your registration and I'll do it for you.
Unless you are very familiar with the difference between catalyst and dpf/catalyst assembly it is difficult to tell from underneath.
If you want to try for yourself, the simplest way is to look from the top and see if you can see some stainless steel pipes coming from above and below the cat, which will have silicon rubber pipes on them going to a presure sensor. It isn't easy as the whole lot is tucked up out of harms way behind the engine.
