i agree why cant distribute for Daganham, it would save them a fortun on shipping costs.

as the fiesta is a popualr car.

my car was due 1st march now it is saying 7th est but dealer thinks may be a few days later.

i cant wait.

This is only a guess but I would have allowed a week from the docks to get to Dagenham Docks, from there it's a train ride to Halewood (Liverpool) where all Fiestas are distributed from along with Freelanders and X-Types, etc. You may have to allow around 2 weeks before your dealer gets the car? If you ever get to travel along the M62 you'll see lots of car transporters every day heading east loaded up with Fords.

Ford, why now just distribute Fiestas from Dagenham?


In theory I agree Truly but I think you are being a little optimistic.......................

Thats good news. March means 09 plate, but make sure he registers it in March not Feb.

Yea ive told them not to reg it, so should be all good!

Its great news, only prob is that ive been without a car now for 2 weeks and getting to uni and around etc is a nightmare!!!

On a side note, if they do reg it before march is there anything i can do to get the 09 plate?!

Quick and simple answer : No. Once the car has its number plate on, thats it you cant change the day it was done

I'd ring the dealer and say you dont want it registered in February then.
My dealer has been ringing me and keeping me updated with the car.

Car was built (according to Ford database) in Cologne on the 11th Feb. I checked today and it has passed through from Dagenham Docks to Dag Rail. So, next stop Halewood by choo-choo. ETA is still w/e 7th March at the dealers. Yeah, that should be next week. B)

Your dealer seams to be better than mine!

Even though mine left on the 9th the system only just updated yesterday to say so! I'm hoping my car is def in the country and nearly on it's way down, now that it's nealry a week late.

I'm hoping to get mine the latest Monday!
