      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. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    If you don't mind me asking, who/how did you contact to get that response from Ford? My situation is similar yet I've had no joy through the dealer or Ford Customer Relationship Centre....
  2. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    I've still not got a confirmed build date. 7 months (at best) to deliver a Fiesta is not acceptable. This is causing me considerable inconvenience and extra cost. I've tried to escalate a complaint with Ford several times, but they just don't want to know or enter into any discussion - they just tell me to liaise with my dealer over the delivery schedule. I find this to be extremely poor customer service. You would think they could offer some form of small financial compensation or goodwill gesture - especially given that the delay has been acknowledged to have been caused by a failure in their supply chain (and by implication, their quality management systems).
  3. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Yep, looks like April for me too (if everything goes as planned.....) Really disappointed with this ridiculous situation - at least 7 months to deliver a Ford Fiesta. Even more annoyingly, I'm using the scrappage scheme, so I am now obliged to fork out on servicing, tyres and a battery to keep my 200,000 mile Fiesta going through the winter (and pray that it doesn't break down in an expensive way in the meantime).
  4. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    errm, off the top of my head - part leather, EATC, privacy glass, touchscreen size, other stuff....
  5. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    That's what I thought... Ta :)
  6. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Apparently it's the 140 engines and higher spec. trims that are the problem.
  7. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Has anyone received an ST line (X) mk8 yet? Or have any info on expected delivery? My dealer says there is a parts shortage and Ford haven't even scheduled my build yet - despite taking my deposit in August :(
  8. New Fiesta, whos got one?

    It is true that you cannot spec a spare wheel with B&O stereo or panoramic roof. - B&O stereo is self explanatory 'cos there is a subwoofer in the wheel well. - My investigations suggest that the spare wheel well is still present and empty (bar the tyre repair kit) when there is a panoramic roof. Possibly a weight/emissions/mpg technicality that means they can't sell you one with the roof and a spare wheel? I have taken a punt and ordered the roof hoping that I can transfer my current spare wheel kit into the new one. Will be able to say for certain when it's ready late November.
  9. New Fiesta, whos got one?

    Ordered an st line x , delivery November
  10. Does anybody have a definitive answer as to why it is not possible to spec a spare wheel with the panoramic roof? Dealer thinks it might be to do with weight/ emissions. Ford live chat thinks the wheel well might be used for something else. Anybody know for sure? TIA Jon
  11. Fuel - Premium or not?

    My leggy mk6 1.6TDCi runs significantly quieter on super diesel and does about 3mpg extra.
  12. Any feedback/comparison with the Mountune kit yet?
  13. 2006 Ford Fiesta Freedom Trip Reset

    My button also died - I replaced the stalk with one I got for a few quid on ebay.
  14. New Fiesta Range - Red & Black Editions

    Fair enough, having read the press release, there's a little bit more to it I guess. Again, the cars in the photos have EATC as well as heated (cloth) seats and Sony navigation - the latter 2 were not availabe on the Zetec S - if some of these options are included in the price then that makes it more attractive......?
  15. New Fiesta Range - Red & Black Editions

    Yeah, maybe, but painting stuff (including wheels) a different colour to what you would normally, costs nothing extra.Having a different map in the ecu costs them nothing extra either. And you are losing out on free road tax. I am rather disappointed that there's no unique special extras included in the price, like exhaust trim, leather etc similar to what they did on the Metal editions. Unless you are desperate for the silly paint job, I really don't see why you wouldn't just get a Zetec S and Mountune it.
