[quote name='Babybel' post='20928' date='Apr 19 2009, 11:09 PM']Aye I can't fault my Ford Ka. I really like the look of the old ones and you are right there is a cheekiness feel to them which I love.
Another fact I love is that it is quite girly... so it means my Dad wont be pinching it to drive all the time.
I was really surprised with how well it drives too and the space inside... I thought it would be horrbile to be honest. After learning in a Ford Fiesta (07 plate) I liked the feel of Ford and wanted to try and get something simliar and to be honest I'd say this drives better!
My Ford Ka has a few mods done to it. From what I have gathered it has had a spolier, side skirts and back put on. I love her and the only thing that is missing is some alloys... but I can live with out them. I am sure as well it has a different engine in. Goes alot quicker then other Ka's I have driven.... Not sure to be honest, will post some pics up soon no doubt for your views.
My plan is to have this one for a few years then get a SportKa
they look rather fit![/quote]
The 1300 cc Ford KA got upgraded in power by fitting a single OHC, boosting power from 59 BHP to 69 BHP. That engine was briefly fitted to the Fiesta, while the 1242 16 valve engine got revised (cylinder-head and oil-ways). The OHC 1300 cc KA engine has a chain-drive to the cam, which can be noisy due to being long, and the sloppy tensioner gives plenty of warning of failure.
