Hmmm the scratch thing does concern me but I have put myself in for a black one that's arriving at a dealership in march. Unless it gets a lot if scratches I guess its not a massive deal, at the end of the day we all fuss over any scratches in our car and it'll annoy us whether its visible to others or not! :P

White is very common these days. Every other car on the road is white. It's annoying too that ford have started to charge for the white paint because of the trend

Same here, the ZS only really suits the red, white, silver and black. Don't think a the candy blue and such would look right with the body kit.

Nah, Silver.
Looks cleaner for longer and the car looks bigger and more striking.
I think silver shows the lines of a car much better.
(not biased in any way)

Na im not a big fan of silver cars. I've opted for the black. You guys have been a great help in my decision with the confirmation of the performance without a ridiculous amount of fuel consumption that isn't justified and with the colours. Mine doesn't turn up until march so unless there's anything wrong with it I will be a proud owner then :)

Actually one quick question. Am I right in thinking leather seats with front ones heated, alloy pedals, voice command, black alloys and usb and bt are all standard or are any of them extras?

I wanted silver, but I'm sick of mine showing every tiny scratch.

So do you metal owners think they're worth paying the extra for?

Im impressed with how economic they are considering what they are actually, I'm guessing they're not too expensive to run from what you guys have said?

My S1600 is currently averaging 43.8 MPG, which i think is impressive considering the performance on offer. On a gentle run, i got over 50MPG, but that was keeping it at about 60MPH.

I had a black car before my white S1600. Although the black was more effort, when you wax or polish it, you did get the rewards the depth of color could really be seen, it was hard work.

The white still needs regular cleaning to keep it looking good, but it won't show scratches like black did!

That doesn't sound too bad. Around town? I've only had my diesel just under a year but I figured if I can't do anything to it I might as well cut my losses and buy a metal in terms of performance and extra toys
