looking for a warm hatch so the fiesta zetec s is at the top of my list (will also test drive suzuki swift sport for comparison as it gets such consistently great reviews, slightly faster, similar power and torque, but the main downer for it is the road tax and fuel economy)
actually saw the deep impact blue colour I was considering for the first time earlier in the week on a focus - wow, looks terrific - pics on fords website in no way do it justice at all!
hoping to get test drives down in the next few weeks. probably will go out in the ST as well while I'm there but I do low mileage, nearly all round town, and although I'm sure it's amazing the power wouldn't get used and coupled with the extra cost and running cost I feel the Zetec S is the smart choice :)
look forward to browsing the forums and chatting more to you all :)
