I have the 18" alloys and find them a real pain. The turning circle is really reduced by a big amount and I find that I cannot just swing into a car park space - i need the reverse and swing in again. I cannot swing straight into my drive have to stop and reverse to get in straight.

Ride is good though:-)

The order has been accepted by motability so iam now waiting for a chassis number

Hi,

Just joined and took delivery of a Titanium X on Friday.

2.0 TDCI

Panther blk

Appearance pack

Sony sat nav

Ordered late Jan

Build date 21st Feb

Delivered 22nd Mar

Unfortunately, due to the snow, i have only managed 4 slow and steady miles since receiving it :blink:

It looks fantastic inside and out. Seats are great, Ford sync with voice control works great, the missus loves the ambient lighting but i'm not too keen on the pink :unsure:

Looking forward to the snow clearing to really try it out.

You will love it mate, mobility or not. I got it as a company car driver. Upgraded from a 2.0 TDCi Mk 2.5 Titanium.

I picked up my Titanium X on Saturday, absolutely love it! Everything on it is great and it is brilliant to drive. Clocked over 100 miles in the first weekend, thoroughly enjoying it so far :)

You won't be disappointed when you get it on the road!!

Nice to see some more Titanium Xs in Ink Blue being picked.

I was amazed when looking at the colours, how few people have it. I think the brochure does it no justice.

In the flesh it is such a deep and rich blue, looks so nice. Really nice to have a "coloured" car again after my previous black and grey choices too :)

My dealer had a Focus MK3 in Ink Blue in the showroom when I went to see about getting a Midnight Sky Focus. When I saw it, it was a case of scratch that, I want that colour!

Totally agree! It looks great on the Focus, better than it did on my previous Fiesta. Not even a little bit of snow can make it look bad to me at the moment ;)

I'm not sure if it better insulated but I know the sound is a lot better than on the old standard radio/CD with old Fiesta's!

silly question I know lol but years ago higher models often were built better and included a "Higher level of Sound insulation over bla bla model"

Has anything changed with the 1.6 tdci 115 (vs my may 2012 1.6 tdci) have they changed anything with the gearbox etc etc etc

Yeah Jamie, I had a Fiesta Edge for the past year, upgraded to the Focus Titanium X at the weekend! The sound is so much clearer even when you are playing music via bluetooth

Nah just the standard that comes with the Tit X - don't know how much difference there is between the two options but I didn't want to wait any longer for my car to be ready!

I doubt these days they'd bother giving the higher specs better sound insulation, the Focus is a very refined car anyway. I have a Zetec 1.6 TDCI and once it's warmed up you'd never know!

The Titanium does have soft touch leather like material on the tops of the door cards instead of the scratchy plastic on the Zetec, so I guess it's a bit more plush in that respect :)
