Original due date was supposed to be on the 20th of March, don't see how it takes more than a month to even start building it when it seems most go from ordering - delivery in 6 weeks, instead it takes more than that for even getting to build it, can't say I'm impressed.

From my own experience and I have a new ford every year you should expect to
wait 8 - 12 weeks for a factory order, I always ask the dealer to assign my order to a
car that is in the system and due to be built and is as close to the spec that I
want.
If you want a March 1st pick up you should order before Christmas or
Straight after the Christmas shut down at the latest.
My latest Fiesta was
ordered 2nd January, Candy Blue and at least another 5 options, was built 29th January and in the dealership by the 23rd Feb.

Frm what I've heard it isn't so much the specs that'd the problem but the demand for the Eco boost engines especially the 125ps! Hey ho, we'll wait out turns I guess. Ordered mine 7/02 due 31st march. But no doubt going to be late!

Mine's diesel so the hold up's with the petrol shouldn't be an issue >_>

 

Last time I ordered my Fiesta it was with me in 4 weeks lol.

Very first post here. Been looking at comments on the facelift Fiesta for a couple of weeks and ordered one last week.

I need a sub-100g car for school run into central London. Pretty short journey which doesn't suit a diesel and really can't face a Prius or electric car which are, in any event, very expensive for limited capability. Currently have a year old Kia Picanto which does the job but not much more - I avoid taking it out of London at all.

Ordered a 5 door 125 Ecoboost Titantium X last week through Drivethedeal with all options bar boot floor and spare wheel. I'm in no rush and have been quoted 10-12 weeks for a factory build which I'm happy with - more interested in discount than delivery!

Found this forum very helpful and can hopefully contribute to it as an owner as well as benefit from it in the future.

Shouldn't be much more than that, might even be less. I placed my order for a Ecoboost Zetec S in the week of 21st Jan and it arrived into the dealership last week and picking it up on Saturday.

 

On a different note, if anyone is looking for a 2nd hand S1600 (white) there is going to be one on Essex Ford's forecourt very soon. One careful(ish) owner and very tidy! :)

Can someone tell me if the carpet mats for the new 2013 ecoboost Fiestas are the same profile and fitting as for the previous MK7 ?

I'm hoping to collect my new Fiesta tomorrow, and will want to get some spare "sacrificial" mats to install ASAP!

By the way, mine was ordered at the end of January and it arrived at the dealer last Friday. It's a 125PS Ecoboost Titanium, 3Dr, Nautical Blue.

 

Thanks

I think they've changed the fixings of them now.

Cheers for the quick reply David. I won't rush into a hasty eBay purchase, then...
