      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Which of these two deals is better?

    Well, in the end we went for Car #2. Mainly because the wife didn't like the interior (too plastic apparently). I'm quite pleased actually as I preferred the newer one (oh,alright, I wanted the GPS and Cruise Control!) Fortunately, their are willing to take our old 2001 Focus for 1800 Euro. It's got a big dent in one side and 200K km on the clock. Also, the airco doesn't work, the indicators don't turn off by themselves and the central locking doesn't work on the driver's side (but they didn't ask if there was anything wrong with it and I didn't volunteer the information!). So I reckon we got a decent deal there. Thanks for the advice. Can't wait to drive our "new" car.
  2. Hi all, A local Ford dealer has two available and I can't decide which one is the better deal. Car 1 S-Max Titanium 2.0 TDCi Price: 23000 Euro/20,864 Sterling Mileage: 28809 km Options Electronic Stability Programme Heated Windscreen + Solar Reflect Panoramic Roof Bluetooth with Voice Control Aluminium Wheels 18" Air-conditioned glove compartment and double automatic air-conditioning Car 2 S-Max Trend (called a Zetec in the UK I think) 2.0 TDCi Price: 28000 Euro/25,400 Sterling Mileage: 10 km (basically a brand new car) Options GPS Automatic headlights Cruise control Parking Assist Electric wing mirrors Electronic Stability Programme Heated Windscreen + Solar Reflect Panoramic Roof Bluetooth with Voice Control Aluminium Wheels 18" Air-conditioned glove compartment and double automatic air-conditioning I guess they both handle and drive the same but I'm wondering if the few extra options on the Trend version are worth the extra money
