Steve

So, who’s having a car change in 2013? What car are you thinking of getting? Or are you happy with your car and if you are, tell us what makes you happy about it ;)

Mark M.K
I might be changing next year, in either March or September. With the new (and ugly) facelift Fiesta, i don't think i will buy another, so that leaves the Audi A1 or the new Renault Sport Clio what comes out next year.

I could be tempted by the Fiesta ST if the price is right. But i need to see one in person before making my mind up about the new bumpers.

I may be Upgrading my motor to a 09/10 plate fiesta Zetec s. my wee fez is starting to get a wee bit old. My front left brake calliper has just decided to lock up so I'm not in the best of moods with my wee motor.

Not so much getting a new car, but my Mini's having a few tasty treats laid into it :P

I have unfortunately considered leaving Ford though if money goes well, but that's not certain just yet >.<
Chester
Probably looking at a Mazda MX-5, but might wait until next year. Who knows!?!

I will be selling my mk1 .5 to make way for mk 2.5 titanium 09/59 plate. in march 2013.

I dropped the Cee'd and went backover a few years to a 55 CMAX :)

I'd love a new focus but, unless I win the lottery, I can't afford it :(. When I finish uni, however, that will be one of the first things I buy!

Unfotunately Ive left the Ford fold and Gone Seat. to me the New Focus simply can't compete

Considering a Leon myself if honest.

I've not seen the new MkIII yet. The top FR engines (170PS diesel, 210+PS petrol) have gone but hopefully the build quality is better than the MkII. I loved my MkI Cupra TDi.
b1g_dav3
I'm looking at a current Supercopa with the 170PS diesel if honest, good cars. 210PS with an out of the box remap.

Ive chopped my mk2.5 focus 1.6tdci sport in for the mk7.5 fiesta 1.0 125 tit x just got to wait till march to pick her up :(
Lenny
Im sticking with the Mk2.5 hopfully finish modifying it by November then buy the missus a mk6.5 1.2 petrol fiesta for crimbo and start modifying it to an st replica.
vince_13
i swapped my battered old nissan almera for a mk2.5 focus this year, took me 4 months to find the right car (very picky) glad to say i cant think of a better car (apart from an ST or RS :P )

Breaks my heart but my car is going up for sale tonight. Love my wee fez to bits but I need something cheaper to run to save up. :( Got my eyes on a very nice well equipped black Ka, which is suprisingly nippy for a 1.2 (test drove it at the weekend) and my plan was to eventually get wheels like on the metal. :) I just hope its still for sale once mine goes!
Stoney871
Sad to hear that.
Hopefully the Ka you get will serve you well.

Ive just sold my old 2001 Y reg prefacelift 2.0 Zetec Mondeo for a good price, and bought a 2004 54 reg facelift 1.8LX Mondeo. Totally love the new car. Just got a couple of small issues that need doing, which I can sort myself
alexp999
I hate to keep saying it in nearly all my posts lately, but seeing as you asked :P

I'm trading in my Fiesta for a Focus 2.0 TDCI Titanium X, just waiting for it to arrive from Ford Direct with the local dealer.

i wasn't going to change my car for another 2 years, but I kept looking at the Focus and finally gave in, lol.

Just ordered a new Focus Titanium 1lt with city pack & appearance pack was not sure about the 1lt till I drove it but really looking forward to collecting it.
b1g_dav3
Just picked up a Mitsubishi Colt 1.5 CZT, 2010 on a cat D, swapped it for my Mini V-Tec conversion w/o engine :P
paddyc1988
I was looking at getting a convertible audi a4
best car for me with my budget
b1g_dav3
Hopefully ordering a new Fez on Friday :P
sd1000
I have just changed my Nissan Qashqai +2 for a 2012 Mondeo T X S 200, wife is going to keep the QQ and i get to have fun in the Ford!! I pick the car up Thursday so only 4 more sleeps to go, i can't wait :D
b1g_dav3
Ordered a new Zetec S TDCi in Frozen White, hopefully here mid-April.
sd1000
well i've had the car now since thursday and all i can say is wow i was comtemplating getting an audi a4 black edition but am glad that i didn't now. i've never had a car that is such a head turner when it was parked up at work on friday the amount of people that looked at itr then did a double take when they realised it had a big blue oval on the front and wasn't a bmw ou audi.

every time i drive it a huge grin appears on my face :D i'm finding excuss now to go out in it like going to the shops and forgetting to pick items up so i have to go back later and get them ;)

Might be chopping in my 2011 Ford Fiesta Edge for either a new Fiesta Titanium 2013 or Focus Titanium, decisions decisions!?! Help!!

Is it better deal financially? Does the Focus hold more value after a few years is what might be the deciding factor!
jeebowhite
It does tend to. my last Focus (2005 Zetec Climate) gained £1 in resale value to what I purchased for it. That was about 2 years later :P lol.

They are more comfortable, and IMHO practical, and certainly the latest shape is a lot more striking.

That's interesting, never knew that to be possible! Undecided as to which would be the better option, might have to go a test drive both! ^_^

Not gonna lie, the new Focus is great to drive and be in; unless you're really set on a Fiesta like I was, go for the Focus. A Zetec Focus is nicer than a Titanium Fiesta and probably not that much difference in costs.

Interesting! Going to have to look into the prices and see what work out for the best in the long run!

Will be getting a 10 plate fiesta zetec-s when my insurance is due.
Honestly can't wait! :)
Devils advocate
I pick up my two litre one six three ps powershift titanium Kuga tomorrow, from EAG paid the deposit yesterday, get rid of our one point four litre 03 diesel fiesta, done us proud, smokes a bit on start up but since we had the turbo done never had a thing go wrong, be sad to see the old girl go, to the scrap yard, but even hen we get three hundred pounds so still giving til the last. Old fords never die they just get slower.

Looking into getting a 2005/2006 Focus St this year, now I have another job closer to home, the misses can drive my focus estate :)

Went into my local Ford dealer earlier today and ended up being in there for 3 hours. Was going in thinking Fiesta Fiesta, came out and most likely going to put a deposit down on a Focus in the next week or so.

Couldn't go for another Fiesta when you get £1,500 to £2,000 deposit allowance on new Focus!!

Managed to negotiate a pretty decent deal on a Focus Titanium in Ink Blue. If I put down my deposit this week it should be ready by May with my added options :) very helpful salesman but glad I managed to haggle down a fair bit!
Kuga X

coming back to ford after a long absence, last Ford i owned was a X Plate Mondeo and the wife had a 2007 Focus CC3 for a while (replaced with a 2 seater Sports car  MG MGF her choice  i liked the focus  )

But ordered a New Kuga Titanium X  with loads of extras ;) Delivery should be late May or more likely Early June, just ready for Summer if we get one summer that is  Lol :)

stuartr26

Ordered my New Focus Titanium X yesterday in Ink Blue, delivery should be in 2-3 weeks, can't wait! First brand new car  :D anyone want to buy a 2011 Fiesta?  ^_^

Funny that I saw those pictures the other day... They were the convincer for me to change! I think the salesman owes you some of his commission!!  :lol:

Angelo Powershift

Hi all, I've ordered a new ford focus Titanium (125)ps 1.6 Powershift.

It's a great car except the option packs for the 1.6 powershift are not available!  :blink:  eg: DRIVER ASSISTANCE PACK, & CONVENIENCE PACK!!! the 2 best pack's :angry: . And of course all new focus's come with the newly improved ELECTRIC POWER ASSISTED STEERING, BUT NOT THE 1.6 POWERSHIFT!!!!!!  :angry:  There are two 2.0 diesel powershifts and you can have any of the packs and the elec steering,  <_<  but why not on that 1.6 powershift. :blink:

I'm afraid the sales people weren't technical enough to know why.

If anyone knows why pls tell/explain

Thanks all
