Can't Decide Which Focus To Buy

7 posts in this topic

A garage up North is selling a 2005 focus 1.6 tdci ghia with 107k miles

While another garage is selling a similar model but the Zetec trim with on 78k miles

However the dilema I'm getting is that I don't like the Ghia's interior, with the wood surround trim on the dash being a put off and the upholstry on the seat looking somewhat outdated, but the car comes well equipped with auto wipers/lights as well as rear electrics, but suprisingly no sports steering wheel.

The Zetec trim comes with a more modern upholstry, dash looks better including the steering wheel, but the trim itself lacks rear electrics and other extras. I've come to the conclusion that the titanium model is basically a combination of both with leather seats, but my budget don't stretch that far.

The question is, what trim would you people go for?

thanks.

GHIA EVERYTIME !!!

its personal choice but the zetec has stiffer springs so less roll the ghia i wouldnt touch from experience they have far too much that can and does go wrong rear electrics are not a big deal and not missed to be honest my mate over the road has a ghia and its been nowt but trouble from new with most of the electrics already been fixed

Go for the Zetec. If its between those 2 cars then definitely the zetec. It looks the business.

Ok, Zetec it is. The Titanium model is well equipped but I think I'll have what I need with the Zetec for now.
