Picked it up last night and drove it out of the dealer at midnight with '10' plates (still looks weird to me lol).

Loving it so far but have one question about the keyless system... after turning the engine off the steering lock doesn't seem to kick in at all no matter how i turn the wheel, is there something special I have to do to get it to lock?

Hehe, the 3 door do look nicer but I went from a MK7 Fiesta Zetec-S so it's nice to have 5 doors again (I drove a 5 door car for 4 years before the Fiesta)... and this one was already built and I got a nice deal :P

The five doors are good if you have a family. Practicality ftw.

However if you're single and vain like me... 3 door all the way.
