      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. Looking To Buy A Fiesta

    Hello, Passed my test a few weeks ago and looking to buy a fiesta MK6 (02-08). I've been getting some quotes and the 1.25 is affordable, and is getting some good reviews for being reliable and generally one of the better first cars to get. I've done some research and the 1.25 comes with the Zetec and the Duratec engine, the only difference I can see is that the Zetec is a little faster. What other differences are there? Is it the same engine, changed slightly? Will it be more reliable, and is it the better choice ultimately? The speed difference isn't too important for me, but the cars which appear to have the Zetec engine in them seem to be more expensive (not just looking at the trim) although that might be because they appear to be a little bit more expensive. I've decided to sign up to the forum as you guys will have the expert opinion. Thanks, User26 - Happy to give any more information etc if needed to make a good decision :)
