Mk6 :( The heaviest fiesta series ever.

I've seen a few mk5 about the forum but i think its more a younger persons car so not many want to join forums :(

Yea there needs to be a decent fiesta club thing. Like saxperience for the saxo where its more aimed to the younger drivers :D

This place is good but its more about servicing and cleaning rather than whos done the best handbrake turn :)

I'm buying a Fiesta at the end of this month when work hurries up with the bonus. :lol:

It'll either be a Mk4 or a Mk5 ... Essentially the same cars, just look a tad different.

Good choice of car fiesta mk5 i wish when i went for a mk5 it was a 1.25 rather than a 1.3 :lol: i find the 1.3 to be a bit slow of the mark but great engines endure e can get a bit tappy after a while tho but it will do me :D

Yeah I'm trying to avoid the 1.3s, sound like a bag of spanners but to give them credit they are reliable. Know someone whos got a Mk3 Fiesta with a 1.3, its covered in rust but it's done near 190K miles! :o

I'm looking for a 1.25 though, drove my friend's Mk4 the other day with that engine, really really impressed with it. Great little engine.

ive got to agree, i used to be known for doing handbrake turns religiously, handbrake parking all that sorta stuff but its the kinda thing i would talk about to mates at the weekend and not on here where it could possibly lead me to being busted?

none the less id would rather try help people fix there cars or offer advice where possible, dont get me wrong handbrake turns are fun :)
Ive had many a freeby from forums, including this one so i like to do a bit and get a bit back :)

and im not getting at you in anyway, im a 'youngster' too

The 1.25L is the better engine, since its a redesigned engine (Zetec-se)
Although 1.4L is better ;) and still does good MPG

Yea i knows this place is more civilized than say saxperience. But still would be nice a little wild on here now and then :P
