      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. R.i.p Fiesta

    I had an Astra for 4 long years and was so glad to get my Fiesta. Do not miss the Astra at all!
  2. New Fiesta, Underpowered?

    I'd been fancying a Fiesta for a while as couldn't wait to get rid of sluggish Astra. Did think about downsizing to a Ka, but the one I took on a test drive was sluggish as hell. Made sure I gave the 1.0 ecoboost a bit of a thrashing on test drive and was really impressed. After reading reviews, went for the 99 hp. Having had some issues changing gear recently (broken wrist recovery) I found the car coped going from 1st to 3rd gears going up hills! Car has easily handled a trip to York and has another long trip ahead of her this weekend! So far, glad I opted for the 1 litre, no road tax and nippy for running around town. OP, definitely try and convince your wife to take your car, but don't let her drive your new one ;)
  3. Thanks for this! Google is fab :). Picked up my new Fiesta on 1st September but have only started to drive it as I broke my wrist grrrr. Blaming the other half for breaking the one touch, but it's now working a treat. I can see my evening will be spent looking through the forum :)
