I saw a fiesta with a 61 plate yesterday at my ford dealer sitting where they park the new cars that are about to be picked up. I forgot it was the 1st today. I'd be sat waiting at the dealers gates if it was me collecting it.

Also while there I looked at a 2012 zetec. Wasn't too impressed with the silver door handles. Felt like they'd just slapped on thick silver paint onto the existing plastic. Could of been a one off mind, don't know. And the mini zetec s alloys looked funny at 15(?)inches, nice though.

Picked up my new Fiesta Centura at midnight :)

Absolutely in love with it, although I need a name...

Let the suggestions commence :)

the finish on my handles is great, looks the exact same as the stereo surround.

must have just been a 1 off unfortunetly

Mine is due at the dealers on 8th October, so I guess it will be a few days after that when it is delivered (technically its not mine as its a company car). I'm bored of waiting now, it seems to be taking forever.

Ah that's good to hear. I thought it probs wud have been a 1 off as I couldn't imagine them making changes to the 2012 model and letting that pass through quality control and get signed off

i get my zetec soon but the one thing i will have to get use to is sitting closer to the wheel but i might have had it set wrong but last time i drove a fiesta was a 60 reg and felt closer to the wheel .

the corsa i was driving before was not as close feeling.

is it just me being weird ?

I've never sat in the new shape corsa to compare with but personally I think you can sit way back in the fiesta if you want. The dash is quite deep for a small car.

I'm over 6 foot and don't have the seat all the way back.

You'll be fine don't worry

I'm 6'2 and can't dont have the seat all the way back. I've been very impressed with the space in the Fez.

Not as impressive when someone has to sit behind me!

I agree, the fiesta is a big car in the front, .....the back - not so much

Honestly, I was even surprised with the space in the back, which in my opinion is not that bad for such a small car.

I'm 6 foot 1 and sit just under arms length away from the steering wheel and my seat isn't all the way back, (got a 5 door) and people can get in and out and sit behind me okay - it won't be first class leg room back there of course, probs more economy-like but I've not had any complaints from those sat behind me - unless they've all just been too polite lol.

Y don't you sit in a showroom fiesta if you're worried?

Paul :)
