Howdy folks, well I was bored and decided to snap a few daytime shots of the new car, not particularly the best as the good camera is currently out of commission >.<
I decided to put them up because not everyone has seen the car's yet too much and are on the fence about them, so thought it'd be a good plan to get them up. Feel free to post any pictures of your own, ask any questions and so on!
The car is beautiful to drive, I remember feeling the quality difference between my pre-facelift Zetec S and a Zetec S Focus both with the 1.6 TDCi engine, and now I feel very little difference at all between my Fiesta and the Focus. The steering wheel is much nicer in the hand for starters, and the seats are more fitting, it's quieter in the cabin and bumps seem much more soaked up than in the pre-facelift. Then there's the obvious differences in the interior trim being gloss black than silver which brings it in line with the Focus, and things seem a little more 'up market' than sporty, which some may like and some may not. The Sync currently is a love-hate relationship, it is a step backwards I feel, despite a more premium feel; it's quite slow on the voice control and it restarts playlists every time you enter the car, rather than restarting and takes a while for it to re-read your device and then play (up to 2 minutes being the worst so far), although it no longer turns off when you turn the ignition off. The only weird thing I've found with the driving of the car so far is that it sometimes won't start, and wants you to put your foot on both the brake and clutch.
Outside the only fault's I can say, are 2 really crappy areas of paint, which hopefully will be being put right soon, but all in all a good car.
