Just read this on the news, glad I register mine this month

Ford is to increase the price of its new vehicles in the UK by an average of 4%.
Ford blames the weak pound for the price hike
Britain's biggest-selling car company said the weakness of the pound against the euro was behind the hike.
The hike will add around 600 to the price of a Ford Fiesta and about 650 to a Focus and a Mondeo.

It is the second price hike by the company this year, following the 3.5% average increase which took effect on April 1.

Never buy new cars anyway. First few years loses couple grand off value easy!
DONFRAMAC
British-built Ford engines and gearboxes, are sent to europe to be built-up and sold everywhere as complete cars.
Can we assume that our cheaply produced exported engines and gearboxes have cut the prices of Fords abroad??
I DON'T THINK SO !!
Ford are obviously pocketing the increase in profitability abroad, but making the Brits suffer for making cheaper drive-train units, as our weak pound MUST be lowering their costs.
