  1. It is here!!! Washed and polished, to be clayed during the week. Know my parking is bad, I was being a little too cautious at first. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  2. Car is ready to go! It got delivered today! I work not to far from the car garage and during a break the transporter passed the window with my car on top! So far have got alloy gators to put on the car on saturday at parents garage and having it clayed and cleaned on the sunday. Can't wait :)
  3. Yeah I read somewhere some people beleive to be a little rough on the engine at first because it seals somethings up and can improve fuel economy. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  4. After lots if fights with the dealer and waiting around, I will get my now Panther Black Zetec this Saturday as the new plates go out. I was looking for a bit of advice and a few tips from the vast wealth of fiesta owners here on what I should do first. I'm a bit at a lost from all I have read. I've heard of claying, being a bit rough on the car to seal a few seals and such, but have no clue. This is the first new car I will have and want to do everything right by it. Any advice and tips would be greatly appreciated. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  5. Sounds like a sweet car! I need to go ask if I can get a drive in mine when it arrives. I pass the car lot on my way to work and back and am stopping to see if it is there yet. Saturday can't come quick enough for me. The site has been really good for info, I love it :)
  6. I'm getting a car next saturday on the first! Will be panther black, but I won't be paying for the cost for the paint. On top of that, 2 years free service, full set of mats and a full tank of petrol. Think I came out of it all not too bad if I don't say so myself.
  7. So little update after a week of battles! After an estimated day of the 1st of March, being told there would be no issues, booking in to come get the car that day, I was left not hearing anything. Upon having to phone, check if the finance was passed, the order was in, I was told my car would be delivered 3 weeks late on the 21st. It doesn't stop there. The manager emailed Ford, copied me into the email and received a response today. My car has not even been built and will not begin the process until the 27th of Feb. Despite a salesman and manager assuring me the car was 'in transport'. After a lot of back and forth, I will now get a car on the 1st of March. Have the option to change it to black if I want, at no extra cost, or wait to see if they can find a white zetec in time. All the fun has been taken out of buying my first car, but hey, atleast it looks as if I am getting one on the first! *crosses fingers*
  8. So I phoned and step 1, the finance was passed! However, Ford have seemed to have 'lost' my car along with a few others due into my dealer. They say they are now at the mercy of Ford when it turns up, which should still be on time. Fingers crossed it still gets here on time, the wait is getting to me!
  9. I will probably give them a call tomorrow then. I managed to get into the deal that I got to pick my own registration, did it on my last car and was given a page of plates available to them to choose from. Heard it has changed slightly now and will have the choice of three, but will see come the day.
  10. Only because I don't know where else to post this, the 1st of March is going to feel like a long while away! From anyone who has bought a new ford before, should I be getting an update on the car soon? On the finance or even the registration of it?

  14. Hi all! About to take delivery of my first Ford and the first car I will have my own name against. Come first of March, will be driving a Fiesta Zetec with Ford Sync and the city pack. Will probably be looking around the forums as the date gets closer, perhaps a little TOO excited. Mark
