  1. Fiesta Zetec S 140PS joining the family.

    Very nice mate, the 140PS will be my next one.
  2. Roof Grab Handles In Mk 7.5 Fiesta

    Thanks Mark, that makes sense. I might have to look at a low-mileage 2011 Zetec S instead..............
  3. I am looking to buy a new 1.0 Ecoboost but I noticed in the dealers showroom that there are no roof grab handles. I need them for the passenger side for a disabled member of the family who needs the grab handles to get in and out of the car. Has anyone added them to their new car ?. The dealer is going to contact Ford to see if it is possible but I wondered if anyone on here has already done this.
  4. So, Which Do You Prefer?

    I prefer the original Mk7, the grille looks more like a Pug 207. The biggest plus will be the ecoboost engine in a Fiesta :D, will probably wait and see what the Zetec S looks like.
  5. What Would You Be Driving If Not A Focus?

    I previously owned a Mk 1 Focus Edge and then a Mk 2 Focus Titanium before buying my Mk7 Fiesta Titanium. While I am enjoying my Fiesta it has not given me the buzz of driving a Focus and my current thoughts are to revert back to a Focus for my next car, ideally a ST.
  6. THE Fiesta Detailing Thread

    I am after some advice please, as this is my first new car, my Ford garage advised that they had put on two coats of AG HD wax when I collected the car last month. Reading the useful detailing info on here, many thanks Dan et al :) , I have only done the basic wash so far - how long do you reckon the wax will last before needing to re-apply ?.
  7. Poll on Fiesta Mk7 Colour Choice

    Opted for Frozen White and very pleased with it.
  8. Hi all, Although I'm a newbie to this club, I have been a blue oval owner for over 7 years. Previously owned a SportKA, Mk6 Fiesta, Mk1 Focus and finally a Mk2 Focus Titanium before taking delivery of my three-door white Fiesta Titanium three weeks ago :D . Having seen the posts regarding the problems with the alloy wheels on the Titanium, I'm paying extra attention to avoid all those potholes on the roads down here.
