It isn't available on any model anymore unfortunately, it's been replaced by deep impact blue.

Haven't seen one in that colour yet but guessing as it's only just changed on the ford website, we won't for a while.

I'll post pictures of mine when I get it though.

Ok I wasn't even offered any blue apparently the only blue on the zs I gt told was candy blue and it's a bit too feminin for me

Ah right not sure about that then. I still think white is the best colour on thr fiesta though. I would have got it again but fancied a change this time.

I agree on the candy blue too, not for me.

Yeah as soon as the misses and mum said i wud go for the candy blue I thought yep white it is :) I love white and think it is these colour when it is clean and it's hard to keep clean looking forward to seeing this new blue though

Haha! That pretty much confirmed it.

Yeah keeping the white clean can feel impossible at times but when it is, it looks brilliant. I'm a little nervous about the new blue as I haven't seen it yet but I'm sure it will look nice. Could be a few months yet for me though!

Hi

Yes, that's a nice blue.

Is that the same blue that the Fiesta ST has on offer?

Looks very similar to me.

Here's the Zetec S in Deep Impact Blue:

And here's the ST in Spirit Blue:

So they have different names so must be a different shade. I'm not sure I can see it though :)

Edit: Not sure why I didn't think of checking the Ford website in the first place for a pic of the new blue. Oh well.

Gary

That's called performance or spirit blue iirc.

Similar, but I think deep impact is by name a deeper colour.

It looks like a slightly lighter version of the ink blue I have on my car. I have gone off white/black colours, loving the really deep colours that are coming out on cars now.

Really it's a bit too sparkly I prefer block colours

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. So long as you are happy with what you have, nobody elses opinion should matter. :)

I happen to like the 'sparkly' nature of pearlescent paints like the candy blue. My old Focus was in pearlescent electric orange and looked excellent. I actually think the fiesta looks good in most of the available colours.

It would be a boring old world if we all liked the same thing

Check the arrow on the fuel gauge to remind you what side your filler cap is......

Yeah, i certainly dont miss the 23mpg it used to give. In spite of this its still my favourite car that I've owned.

Got 42mpg in my old fiesta zs and currently get 34mpg in the Z4, so if I get over 40mpg when the new fez arrives I'll be quite happy.

Agreed, the ST is a great car for the money. I'm still in ST mode whilst in the Fiesta and get 39 - 42 mpg per fill up
