So are you using an external HDD in the car USB?

 

If so what are you using, just a standard laptop hardrive?

Yeah thats right Darren, I'm using a 2.5 Samsung SSD in a case then pluged it strait into the cars USB.

Ive tried other laptop drives but could not get some of them to work as they draw more power than the USB can handle so an SSD is the best way.

Most hard drives are in NTFS formate so need to be reformatted in FAT32 to work in the car, this can be done easily on your PC using free software from the Internet.

Plug your 'i pod' in, then press the 'command' button on the steering wheel & when promted say 'I pod' or 'USB'. Hopefully it will then prompt you again, so say 'play all'.
See what happens.

Now you guys have owned the Zetec a while, how's the mpg?

 

Still tempted to get one, I'd like the 123bhp one :)

Hi

I am currently getting 47 - 48 mpg around town and 55 mpg on decent runs.

The car is a zetec S 1.0 125 petrol with 3.500 miles on clock, hope that helps.

Hello everyone, this is my first post asking for advice but this seems like the place to do it. Looks like a great forum with helpful users.

 

After rocking my 1.25l Fiesta Zetec since I passed my test 3 years ago I am now in the position financially to upgrade. I really want a Zetec S. Well ideally I'd like an ST but do need to save money for other things, maybe in a few years!

 

My main question is; how long is it taking for cars to arrive? I have read the entire thread and see various times for delivery from a week to a few months. My insurance runs out on my current car beginning of October so it's probably best I go to a dealership next week and see what is what.

 

I'd also like opinions on what extras to get? I 100% want to have 17" alloys, privacy glass, DAB radio. What about EATC and the city pack? And they worth the cost? Things like automatic wipers I figure I can do myself when it rains and not worried about keyless entry. Opinions are welcome though.

 

Finally, I plan to go on finance with the options plan. I have my car to trade and savings so will probably pay the max deposit. How much were you able to get off the list price of the vehicle?

 

Thank you for all your help, can't wait to join the Fiesta S club, just wish they still put the badge on the car :-(.

Welcome,

 

What color are you looking at? I think you will be well happy with this nippy fiesta. Its so fun to drive. I just came back from spain 12 hours trip and i had loads of fun avoiding the cameras. I'm really impressed by how much the car still pulls when in 5th gear. My old fiesta (1.4tdci) didnt move lol. Anyways just to say am very pleased with it =).

 

I Had 4K off the price + extras without trading in a car. Oh i am in France so might differ. (I asked for a ST and it was 23K without extras, i heard in England you can get them less than 18K)

Extras are a personnal preference 

 

but for extras that i got:

 

- Privacy glass: Car looks ten times better

- 17" alloys: Same, car looks better but remember that tyres will cost more.

- Sony 8 speaker radio pack with color screen: (Don't know if this is available in UK since i didn't find it on UK ford) The screen is really nice, just like a TV and not the orange lettering like the old MK7

- Winter pack: (might not be called the same in the UK) Heated screen and heated front seats. I took this cause first of all where i live it snows alot and its always cold lol so the screen was why i had this pack installed. Then the seats well thats just gadjet =). But both work really well especially the seats. (Don't need to have the leather seats for this as like me i got the normal black and red ones since those were what i wanted)

- Spare wheel: Or you get a spare wheel, or you keep the repair kit in the trunk thats already in the car. But i think that a spare is better. (its a real one not a saver) You wont repair a 2cm wide hole with a repair kit. So i think its better to have the spare.

- cruise control: Is a must if you drive alot, especially on motorways. I have a 120km commute to work everyday and with cruise control i average around 650km on a full tank whislt using cruise control. It helps alot. This is why i chose this option cause i new that doing so much mileage with a petrol car is not sensible but i have to say that i have the same MPG as my old 1.4tdci MK6 fiesta =)

 

hope this helps,

Ive added a s badge on the front grill cost me like less than 15 quid on ebay , definatley go for the 17s and privacy glass looks a lot better with them. As for the extra speakers, I think the standard system with 6 speakers is pretty good to be fair. And racing red for the colour :)

I think I'm going for black. My Fiesta now is black and I just like black cars, but I'll take a look at the colours at the dealership as you never know until you see them in person.

 

I believe heated front windscreens are standard now. I want my days of scrapping ice off my car to be over.

 

I think it's only six speaker over here in regards to the Sony sound system. I think DAB is for me but not the satnav option, it's an extra £500 and for when I actually need a satnav my £100 tomtom does the job.

 

Are heated/electric foldable wing mirrors worth the cost and puddle lamps? I think maybe I am struggling with the concept as it's summer but give it a few months I'll want them on my car! I have a short commute so having a car I can get ready to drive with minimal effort is a must. Last winter it sometimes took me longer for me to get it in a position I can drive it with good visibility than it did the actual drive to work :-|

 

Read lots of reviews about the car needing 6 speed and that the long gears don't help it pull but doubt I'll notice going from a 74hp 8 year old Fiesta  ^_^ . Will be nice to have something which can accelerate up hills.

yeah accelerate up hills it will =). I come from a 68bhp mk6 tdci so its hugely fun and pulls very nicely you will be surprised from it only being a 1.0 L =).

 

don't know if its standard for the screen. Would be nice if it would but i know that here in france it isnt
