Well I did the deal! TCH at Derby had one in stock and did me the best deal. It's race red and has privacy glass and a spare wheel (which isn't standard apparently). I am looking forward to both the car and saving money because on all fronts this car will save me money which is what I need with my Uni fees!
A few years ago I owned a facelift Fiesta ST with the minor mod of induction kit. Now despite that clearly being a faster car than the new Zetec-S, it didn't really feel it. That's because I always found that the ST needed revving to get the best from it whereas on the test drive, the Zetec-S felt very lively with little effort thanks to the turbo and an extremely smooth engine too.
Not that I bought this for speed of course, its about saving money whilst getting a car which offers good value for money. Quite a novelty not having to pay any road tax! Happy with my choice and looking forward to Saturday morning.
