Thanks for the replies :-)

 

Iam excited

 

When I Rang the dealer it still only had an order number  and not a chassis number :-(   (last week)

 

Does the higher models have more sound insulation etc than the lower models etc,

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 :)

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:-)

HI, i have just taken delivery on a 10 plate focus titanium mk2.5 with extra's

cruise

keyless entry,keyfree remote

tyre dds

tints

park sensors etc.

& soon will add st225  225/40/18's alloys, my question is will these have a reduced turning circle?

p.s. only picked it up tuesday 26th march.

They will most certainly have a reduced turning circle,

 

The mk2.5 focus has a slightly better turning circle standard compared to the mk3 focus.

Okay i now have nearly 300 miles on the clock  :)

 

Drove a couple of hundred miles for an Easter break. Mostly motorway miles but impressions so far are:

 

Drives great, it's comfortable and quiet. The 161 bhp engine is responsive. Xenons are great. The cockpit is really funky and night driving with the ambient lighting is really cool.

 

Love the cruise control, voice controlled phone calls, DAB, BT connectivity for ipods and the like works great. Sat nav and rear camera are a nice touch. All in all a very happy X owner  :wub:

 

Unfortunately a stone pinged up from a lorry on the M6 and hit the bonnet (scratched)  :angry: then ricocheted onto the windscreen (chipped)  :censored:

Stones Grrr I hate them, One Hit Smileys ford badge at the front and actually dented it :-(

 

Motability wanted £2500 as an advanced payment for a 2.0 tdci 163 :-( and it came with powershift,

 

So im stuck with a 1.6 tdci 115 again which isn't a bad drive actually :-)

 

Still no chassis number just a boring order number still and iam supposed to collect it 2nd week of may :-(

Stone chips are a pain, but such is the way with owning a car.

 

I have already got a stone chip on the bonnet from a gritter lorry :(
