I picked my new Fiesta 1.6 TDCi Titanium on Thursday - I absolutely love it.

It's finished in Squeeze and looks pretty distinctive.

No faults so far, just a bit miffed that the parking sensors aren't colour coded and under the bonnet, it isn't fully sprayed.

Otherwise, an awesome little car.

I should be getting mine just after Xmas hopefully. As you can see from below I'm having the petrol one--must admit I didn't know that the parking sensors weren't colour coded although mine's got the full body kit so hopefully......

My first thought was black but then I saw the brochure which showed hot magenta and I was hooked--just hope it's as good in the flesh so to speak!!! ;)

I have had my 1.6 Titanium for about 6 weeks now. It has the full dress up kit and the Titanium X pack and the colour is Vision. I have got a few shots of it here.

I have only seen one other black Zetec.

The only fault so far is that it seem to report a fault with the indicator bulb when I turn right, yet the next time I use the car it comes on when I unlock it.

Yours looks good in Vision--that's another colour besides black that I would have considered if I'd hadn't fallen in love with the hot magenta colour in the brochure.

Is yours petrol or diesel and are you running it in gently or just giving it loads of welly from the start?

If petrol how's it doing on economy--I realise that as the engine loosens it will improve but just curious.

Hopefully Santa (aka Jim from Shepshed Ford) will have mine ready after Xmas............... <_<

It is the petrol engine. I just driving it sensibly rather than booting it. At the moment I am only getting 22 mpg, but there are alot of roadworks around my way at the moment.

I'm seeing new Fiesta's everywhere, but I guess I would considering I live in Essex - Fordland.

I popped to Sainsburys earlier and saw a Black Zetec and another Squeeze Titanium but a 3-door.

I'm really liking it in solid red - I think it looks pretty cool in that colour.

Since Janet collected her Sportka I've only seen two Sportkas but no more Fiestas.

Hopefully once I get mine they will all come out of hiding!!!!

Like you say, you being in Fordland, you're bound to see more than us country boys.............

Seriously though, you always tend to see them when you've got one don't you?

I've only seen 1 other new fiesta since buying mine. Give it a few more months and there will be thousands on the road

They simply stick on to the car. Pull off the strips on the back and place onto the car. Theres 2 lines on the plastic trim for you to messusre up to so you get them in the same place both sides :)

The fan coming on not long after starting the car I have since found is not the main fan, but the fan for the Air con. So if you have the aircon, or the digital climate control come on automatically when you start the car, its that fan thats kicking in! LOL. I asked in the dealership the other day when I was in, and the service manager said thats what it is....

Where did you get the spoiler + fitted mate?

Thought it was only an option on the titanium models.

I went to a ford dealer and got the zetec S spoiler on its own (box is MASSIVE!) for around 160. Then went to the dealers bodyshop (for best colour match and keep my paintwork warrany) and they fitted it for me at 150. So will be about 300 fitted.

As for the pedals - same dealer. 40 and i fitted them myslef
