Guys, I am wondering how the 1.0 ecoboost sounds like?? Asking that because I am interested in swaping my MK7 1.25 with the new zetec S ecoboost, and there are 3 major components I expect from a car:

1. nice, nippy handling ( Fiesta already has that :D )
2. precise steering and gear change ( look for the comment above ;) )
3. nice exhaust/engine sound ( my 1.25 has a nice, deep burble throughout the revs, so does my Giulietta Multiair )

....and no, I am not a boy racer :D It is just the fact that I dont really want the car that sounds like a 60 bhp 1.2 Vw Polo :D you know, that "look at me, I have a vacuum cleaner engine in my car" sound.....

i know i was gutted, but the ST was to expensive to run as an everyday car, i'm sure i'll get used to this one though


Yeah me too.

I'm looking forward to getting back into the Fiesta. Also looking forward to less petrol trips :)

Yes you will definitely see the difference in petrol, I used to be putting petrol in every 2 days in the ST, had this since Monday and its not even on half a tank!! :)

I think these look great in red, are they the standard wheels, what are they, 16"? Much prefer the upgraded wheels.

It was the standard 16 inch wheels on the model in the pics I posted. The showroom got it in on a Thursday and when we went to see it on the Saturday afternoon it was already sold so we couldn't sit in it. It was a factory standard build with a Diesel engine.

Why oh why have they got an EconeticTechnologies badge on a Zetec S. I think they should have stuck to putting the model on the back. I quite like my red S after the Zetec.
