Having previously owned a Fiesta Titanium I decided that I wanted more refinement and comfort than a supermini can offer, and bought a 1-year-old Focus Titanium today. It has the appearance pack and city pack, and is/ was a Ford Direct car ^_^

Thanks :)

I've been wanting to move up to a larger car for a while. As much as I love my superminis, they're never going to be the quietest or most comfortable cars. I saw this car about a month ago but was in two minds whether to change or not, and then I saw this week that they had reduced the price of the car and decided to take it out for a drive. It's very quiet indeed!

I've paid £12,500 for it. There we some for £700 less from different dealers, but the dealer I bought the Focus from were also the ones I bought my Fiesta from, and I was happy with the service from them so far so just decided to stick with what I know.

Very nice indeed! The current Focus is all the car anyone could ever need in my opinion, quiet and refined, yet good to drive.

I see you put ZS wheels on your Fiesta, any plans for the Focus?

That car would look a hell of a lot nicer (IMO) if you banged on a set of either Jimrex's alloys on, or Pree's alloys.

No plans for changing anything on the Focus at the moment. They had others available with the larger alloys on, but I purposely went for the smaller wheels as my main reason for changing was comfort and refinement. I was worried that the slightly larger wheels may harm the ride quality.

Only three days to go!

I chose a Fiesta over a Focus :P the Focus I tried was nice though, just a bit big for my liking if honest. Was looking at a Zetec S myself, but the Fiesta still won out :P

Only the measly 1.6 125ps petrol. I had the same engine in my old Fiesta and it wasn't great even in something small, but I didn't buy the car for speed, I bought it for cruising :) At the moment I'm baffled by the amount of buttons on the steering wheel!

One thing I do love is the screen on the centre console. Even though my Fiesta had a similar thing, this one is much nicer/ more advanced etc.

I've only driven it home so far, but I'll be going out for a valentines thing later on so will get a better chance to give it a decent run... and also get the girlfriend's approval or disapproval.

Absolutely brilliant :) I've been out in it for a good while tonight and I'm really impressed. It just has a lovely feel to it. My girlfriend says it feels like a spaceship inside. The handling is fantastic for a car this size too.

I love it.
