  1. Had my Titanium 125 ecoboost for 1100 miles now from new and including one 500 mile motorway trip and two 150 mile motorway and dual carriageway trips, overall average is 45mpg checked brim to brim. 52-58mpg showing on computer for long journeys at 65-75 indicated mph and for the other 300 miles of 3-13 mile local journeys showing 36-42mpg according to how warmed up the engine gets. Still hoping for improvements with more miles, but that fizzy little turbo engine begs to be revved in the gears which is not good for economy.
  2. My Fiesta Titanium delivery date was put back two weeks due to Christmas break (from 28th December to 11th January), car was received at dealers yesterday. Hopefully, handover will be one day next week. That will be 10 weeks from ordering.
  3. Hi to everyone. New to this forum but hope to be a useful contributor. I am looking forward to picking up my new Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.0 125bhp next week and you can probably guess the colour from my username. This will be my fifth or sixth Fiesta since 1981 with various shapes and engine sizes. I haven't owned a Ford since 2004 (a 1.4 Fiesta Zetec) so will be expecting some improvements with the latest mk7. I have been looking round on here for a few weeks and feel I have already learned quite a bit about my new car and some of it's good and bad points, so thanks for all those regular contributors who have shared their knowledge and their experiences. I have also seen some of the common modifications which are giving me food for thought at present. I will pop back in a few days on the Fiesta club to let you know how I like the car.
