It looks very smart Paul.

Just one thing, why does everybody blank out the number plate?

I never do on mine but it's got a personal plate so I suppose it doesn't matter.

Black was originally my first choice and as your pics show it looks stunning.

Well done that man---they're even better when the engine's bedded in and you can open her up a bit.................. ;)

Come on man--you're going to have to be a bit patient surely?

I waited just over 1000 miles before I started to open her up a bit more.

I only waited about 800 miles on Janet's Sportka but that car was begging to be opened up from day one----whereas the Fiesta felt tight and to be honest still does----so I guess it's down to each individual car and how you feel about it...... :rolleyes:

Nice motor. Internet etiquette is to blank your plate out so if any potential car number plate thieves are about they cant note registrations to clone cars. As for personal number plates, makes no difference, you wont have a one off Ford. They go for common colours, ie silver or black or red and then make dodgy plates. Then go speeding around, robberies, petrol thefts etc and who gets the fines/visits from the police......well you do its your registration plate after all innit lol. PMSL @ 100 miles bedded in. You dont really need to run engines in these days but if you want to generally people do 500 miles below 50mph 500 miles below 60mph then normal driving. 100 miles nowhere near runs an engine in mate.

Road speed has nothing to do with it, it's about engine speed, ie the revs of the engine.

Also, don't be too harsh on the brakes early doors, let them bed in and the tyres.

Alloys comes with one of the packs ( street pack I think ). Chrome not my thing I have too much on my motorbike and its even worse to clean than black.

Cant do revs without road speed unless hes gonna sit revving the !Removed! off it. So its everything to do with it.
