Well, after 10 months of not owning a car after i returned my 61 plate with a fault, 8 months since it was first ordered!!!  With 4 delays inbetween, from shortages, new models, lack for engines, software problems and Fords great delivery network.

 

My New Fiesta Zetec S Candy Blue will be at the Dealers Friday, and then going to see it before it is registered, make sure the add ons are on it and there is nothing a miss.

 

More to come...

Hi there,

What engine did you go for and why?

 

I have gone for the 1.6 TDCi...

 

Why? Well, i was right on the cross over with both engines, the other being the 125hp ecoboost.  I 'have' done quite local trips and commutes over the last.... 3-4 months.  But i am now doing more miles on motorways and national roads, which everyone knows is key to diesel economy.

 

Thing is i had the diesel previously, and i would do both local and occasional long journeys, and with a 40-45 litre tank, i was covering 450 odd miles.  I was returning to the gas station around 3.5 weeks later so, i must think, diesel is the way to go.  I just found it more and more encouraging to drive conservatively and get the mpg higher and higher.

 

If i really did live local, work local, friends and other aspects all local, then yes, probably would go for an ecoboost for the fun factor too, but i have heard others say so here, that even living all locally they still go for the diesel despite this calling that if you do not do X amount of miles per year then you will loose out, get a petrol.  Well, as i mentioned i did a lot more local travel last time and i found my 61 plate fiesta much more economical then the petrol car i had before that.  It was doing around 30 mpg, and when i got the diesel it was liking waiting for the needle to go down, and it did.... but slowly :D

 

So yea, TDCI for me!!!

Monday morning, going to see the car.  It arrived at the dealers today, they pulled the stickers off and giving it a valet ready for Monday.

 

It was driven to the dealers but i think it was that or wait for ever for a transporter.

We think the wrong radio was fitted, and wrong speakers... I am trying to find the part numbers so they can order the parts needed to correct the issue without too much fuss, there is a way around it but depends on obtaining the correct bits.

Well i did like them but by the time i realised they were a £200 'factory' upgrade or much much more afterwards...  Like £800, the car was on its way.  I don't think it looks too bad, and it is something i can look forward to later. :D
