Thanks :) The dealer, SMC in Uxbridge, has been excellent. Ordered it in January & was quoted 12 weeks to wait. He called to say when it was gonna be built, and when it was gonna be delivered to them, and I got it on the day arranged back in January!!

Also gave me a spare owners handbook in February to learn all the gadgets.

Voice control is annoying. Works perfectly when you're on your own, makes you look an idiot when you demonstrate it to the wife :)

Your extremely lucky! A lot of us had had bad experience. My car is 3 weeks late, and still no signs of it!

And i can image what you mean with the voice control!

Looks lovely in Morello. Only the second time I've seen one in that colour, the first was at the dealers when we changed our minds from Magenta to Morello. Can't wait for ours now, counting the days waiting for a call.

Nice one Ray!

It's darker than I thought it would be but it's a good strong colour.

Just one snag--where's the key? :D

Only joking--you've got the tech pack so..................no key!!!!!!!!

Glad to see you rate your dealer too--so many people are disappointed or criticise them but I too was very pleased with mine and would definitely recommend them.

We need a list of 'Good' and 'Bad' Dealers :)

I agree because you can't tar every dealer with the same brush.

Slightly unfair of you to say you'll never buy another Ford as I guess it's based on the poor service you've received this time but it's your opinion as a paying customer that counts.

I'll start the ball rolling as I am extremely happy with my dealer:

Wouldn't swap mine for anything (Focus ST perhaps....maybe....!)

First time ive seen that colour and i must say it looks fantastic. id say better than the hot magenta IMHO

Not sure about the cheap looking blanking plug to cover where the ignition was.

But a lovely car and i hope you enjoy it and have no problems with it. keep us posted on your MPG

As for the voice control its a doddle once you get used to it and works a charm, as long as you have a very good compatalbe phone.

Happy motoring

I saw a Sea Grey one last week near Wetherby and it looked pretty classy.

Sorry guys, still prefer my gorgeous hot magenta.

However, Morello and Squeeze are both strong vibrant colours and, if they were to bring out an St or RS in the future, I might be tempted to have a different outrageous colour............ ;)
