    Fiesta Zetec
  1. Probably a dumb question but i'm about to upgrade my phone, gonna get me a swanky iphone ;-) Just checking that it will work in my Fiesta (new) as i seem to remember that it will only recognize certain phones. K x
  2. I love it, love it, LOVE IT!!! Its just great to drive, hardly any noise in the car whilst driving! Its brilliant!! And its drawn so many looks on the drive back!!
  3. Well i'm about to go and get mine!! But no, i've seen 1 only- a white one. Perhaps we will be unique!!
  4. £1600 off, how did you manage that?!! I asked for any discount, told them of my sob story of working for the NHS but natch!! All i got was the promise of free mats and a full tank!! They probably saw me coming, female and a bit ditzy :(
  5. I've just confirmed with the dealers today that i can pick up my new Zetec on thurs- 8 weeks after putting in the order! I only obtained the Reg a week ago but strangly the invoice stated date of reg as 8/12/08. I asked the dealers the other day if the new Fiesta is selling well as i had not seen many on the road yet, he informs they are but with the economic downturn production is slower. Apparently a container wont be sent to the uk (cars are made in valencia) until full. Even this week i was promised sat 5th then sun then next week etc.... Until i threw a bit of a hissy and quelle surprise its ready on Thurs!! Cant wait, 1.4 Zetec panther black, bluetooth and lighting and £250 off list price due to cut in VAT! (i ordered at time of promo so got £500 off too!)
  6. Thanks for the heads up! Hopefully i'll pick up my new Zetec in a couple of weeks (i say hopefull but seeing as the dealers cant give me a reg or chassis number yet....). I'll ask the dealers about spare wheel, totally slipped my mind as being a girl i was just entranced by the ambient lights..... :-)
  7. Huurah!! Good news!! The car was a total loss, the insurers have settled as have the GAP insurance and yesterday i put an order in for an 'all new' Fiesta Zetec, panther black...... They drive really well and i cant wait to take delivery!! And again i took out Gap because without it i would not be so happy right now had i not before.
  8. Thanks for the replies, confirms what i thought. I've had a bit of a closer look today (seeing as the car is still outside my house and not being collected 'til tomorrow)... The exhaust is bent double, the radiator caved in, there looks to be some intrusion in the drivers footwell and the rear o/s panels look 'bowed'. Its a shame because i'd just decided to finish the finance and keep the car!! Maybe now i can get the "all new Fiesta" :-)
  9. Hi, i'm new and looking for some opinions please. I have a Fiesta zetec climate 55plate newest shape. Yesterday on leaving my house i found that my car was not where i had parked it!! What had happened was a BMW travelling down my road had swerved to miss another car and gone into mine.... my car was parked nose to nose with a Freeander..... So, the BMW had hit the rear of my car shunting it into the nose of the Freeander and causing 15ft of movement to 2 cars parked with handbrakes on. The cosmetic damage to my car IMO doesnt look that bad, there is damage to rear offside bumper and boot, the bumper is touching the rear offside wheel. The front bumper, grille, HLs and bonnet have been moved up and out (a screw from the freelander is embedded in the grille) ?engine bay movement. The passenger door will only open about 2" after that there is resistance. Here is the crux. Do you think the car will be written off? The owners of the BMW and Freelander think their cars are (i saw neither), and with the movement of my car- 15ft- will there be chassis/floor damage? I'm kinda hoping the car is a total loss as i dont think i'd be happy to drive it anymore in case of floor damage. Will the garage thoroughly check chassis frame? I'm fully insured and have GAPinsurance also. I know its hard to make an opinion without seeing it but any insight greatly appreciated.
