  1. Fairly new to the forum, so "hi", :) Took the plunge to order a Fiesta Zetec S through a company salary lease scheme. Order confirmed on April 4th, built on May 26th, released from the factory on May 28th and as far as I know, it's sat on a dockside in Germany ever since!! The original delivery date was June 9th, put back to July 23rd, bought forward to June 21st, put back to July 11th and I've just had another email to say it's been put back to July 25th!! Phoned the dealer last month and he said that Ford had discovered they had to transport an extra 15000 cars during June. Is this normal? Is anyone else getting the same issues? :( Great forum by the way.

    :-( Am gutted. Just heard from Ford that they have put back my expected delivery date by six weeks!! That would be a total wait of 3months and three weeks from order, after five weeks from order they still don't have an expected build date from the factory. Anyone else having/had delays recently? The RS2K was sold last weekend, so the bike's gonna get some pounding. lol

    Bugger! Thanks for the replies and gen, will have to sort that out now. I quite like the white ones from Performance Creations I've seen elsewhere on the forum.

    Something else has come up in conversation with a friend. I have asked for a set of genuine Ford mudflaps to be fitted by the dealer, has anyone else been able to have these as I'm told (quite adamantly) that cos of the kit they won't fit?

    Ahhh, ok, I managed to pick up the owners manual thanks to a link somewhere in this thread, haven't got that far yet. Didn't think we had freeways here? lol Thanks Willy.

    Hi, am getting a Zetec S (hopefully) mid-June, this thread has been a really useful insight into the Fiesta, thanks all. Just wondering, is there any mechanical "running in" procedures? Thanks again.
