  1. That magnetic colour does look very nice....white would be my choice though.
  2. I'm considering one although I'm really happy with my Cooper S at present........agree with Dark Knight's review as when I test drove the ST in May I didn't think it was as responsive as my S but with the Mountune kit fitted it would be a different animal I suspect. That said, we do have a beautiful Fiesta 1.0 125bhp Titanium X in frozen white (my wife's car) and that is a real joy to drive; lovely comfortable seats, no road tax, cheap insurance and even though Janet only drives a handful of miles to work and back most of the time with the air-conditioning on, it's still returning nearly 40mpg which will get better (hopefully depending on how much she likes the loud pedal) as the car has only done 500 miles!
  3. Good evening and welcome!
  4. My Cooper S has this shift indicator but it will adjust to the way you drive ie if you drive conservatively it will light up all the time but if you give it some beans (which it loves!) then it will only light up at red line revs........
  5. Well guys, I'm a production controller for a well known aerospace manufacturing company; been there 15 years and loved every minute of it! Keeps me out of trouble with SWMBO..............!
  6. Good choice.....mine is also for my wife as I have my Cooper S as a plaything!! She wanted the bodykit but for some reason they don't offer it on the X and that was the one she fell in love with so I just had bigger wheels etc for her. Whereabouts in Leicestershire are you?
  7. I've just ordered a titanium x fiesta 125 as a replacement for my wife's Sportka which means my ST will have to wait a couple of months now! That said, it'll give me time to save up an extra £600 for the Mountune mods too.......
  8. Looking good.......maybe I'll consider getting a white ST later this year....
  9. I've just ordered a Fiesta 1.0 125 Titanium X in frozen white with 17" alloys, spare wheel and front / rear parking sensors......I was lucky as there was one already built just waiting for a home so I should have it in 2-3 weeks! I'll be watching this thread with interest now......
  10. Very nice......I'm stuck between 2 colours......frozen white or that beautifully stunning spirit blue!
  11. Personally I'd go with the white as the black wheels look stunning on a white car! White is timeless and not such a pain to keep clean either!
  12. Could it be that the second USB socket is purely for software updates? Reason I ask is that's the case on my current car (Cooper S) because I went through the same saga as you guys only to find that out........
  13. Very nice.....
  14. Great little cars aren't they? I often drive my wife's Sportka as it handles just like a go cart and has its own little personality!!
  15. Good morning and welcome! Bet you are really really excited...........
