well i've had the car now since thursday and all i can say is wow i was comtemplating getting an audi a4 black edition but am glad that i didn't now. i've never had a car that is such a head turner when it was parked up at work on friday the amount of people that looked at itr then did a double take when they realised it had a big blue oval on the front and wasn't a bmw ou audi.

every time i drive it a huge grin appears on my face :D i'm finding excuss now to go out in it like going to the shops and forgetting to pick items up so i have to go back later and get them ;)

Is it better deal financially? Does the Focus hold more value after a few years is what might be the deciding factor!

It does tend to. my last Focus (2005 Zetec Climate) gained £1 in resale value to what I purchased for it. That was about 2 years later :P lol.

They are more comfortable, and IMHO practical, and certainly the latest shape is a lot more striking.

That's interesting, never knew that to be possible! Undecided as to which would be the better option, might have to go a test drive both! ^_^

Not gonna lie, the new Focus is great to drive and be in; unless you're really set on a Fiesta like I was, go for the Focus. A Zetec Focus is nicer than a Titanium Fiesta and probably not that much difference in costs.

Interesting! Going to have to look into the prices and see what work out for the best in the long run!

I pick up my two litre one six three ps powershift titanium Kuga tomorrow, from EAG paid the deposit yesterday, get rid of our one point four litre 03 diesel fiesta, done us proud, smokes a bit on start up but since we had the turbo done never had a thing go wrong, be sad to see the old girl go, to the scrap yard, but even hen we get three hundred pounds so still giving til the last. Old fords never die they just get slower.

Went into my local Ford dealer earlier today and ended up being in there for 3 hours. Was going in thinking Fiesta Fiesta, came out and most likely going to put a deposit down on a Focus in the next week or so.

Couldn't go for another Fiesta when you get £1,500 to £2,000 deposit allowance on new Focus!!

Managed to negotiate a pretty decent deal on a Focus Titanium in Ink Blue. If I put down my deposit this week it should be ready by May with my added options :) very helpful salesman but glad I managed to haggle down a fair bit!
