Hi people!

Can anyone help me with this dilemma. I'm trying to choose between a nearly new Ford Fiesta Zetec S petrol or Metal. I've put a deposit down on a Metal but still haven't made up my mind!

I'm looking at a 2010, 9k,Black Zetec S with leather seats (rare) and push button start, mint condition, £10,700.

The Fiesta Metal is a 2011 (7 months old), 6k, black, push button start, mint condition, £12,300.

The Metal seems like great value, looks great and should hold its value better being a limited edition, however I've heard reports that fuel economy is poor with the gear ratio set up for best acceleration. I commute 400 miles a week (mostly motorway) so I'm concerned about fuel economy and road noise.

I'm coming from a 2003 Zetec 1.6 petrol which isn't very economical at all, no doubt worse than the Metal. Do you think I'm being silly and should go for the ZS TDCI instead?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

This is the Metal I've brought (just so you know it's no longer available if you're thinking of buying it yourself!) ;-)
