First post on the forum so hello to you all.

 

I'm going to purchase a nearly new Zetec S fairly soon. I've been reading through all the stock equipment and it seems a little disappointing if anything.

 

The kind of things I'd want are:

 

- In-built Sat Nav

- Bluetooth

- Reversing cameras

 

I've noticed that the cars I have looked at so far, although new, rarely feature any of these modifications, if any, I've put this down to being bog standard ones that the manufacturers send out.

 

What kind of price would be looking at for the above upgrades? What else would you recommend that doesn't come as standard?

 

All help appreciated,

 

Chris.

Most will have Bluetooth and/or USB.
I think hardly any will have satnav or camera as it was a £300/400 option.

Sat nav, download something for your phone, reverse camera.... It's a fiesta not a bus, £800 saving, go on holiday.

I don't want to boast, but I will :), decided to take a look in my local Ford dealer, as I am on options, to see about what my next car could be, i looked at a Fiesta ZS, it had been sitting in the showroom for awhile, and they needed to shift it, so I put down a deposit, so a ZS worth £17500, is going to be mine for £15000.
I paid nothing for the following, they were already on the car, although Race Red you get free anyway.
It has.....
Race Red Paintwork
Full Leather Interior
Navigation System
Privacy Glass
Front & Rear mats
City Pack
17" Alloy Wheels
Heated seats
Well chuffed, 2 weeks to wait now.

I didn't pay for these, as they were already on the ZS, it'd be rude not to turn this deal down eh ;)

well essentially they are in the price you paid. With my options i paid 15 500€ for the car... oh and i forgot the privacy glass..

 

the only thing you are probably getting free is the leather seats... which here in france is a 1200€ option

 

 

edit: oh i see what you meant, you were saying you didnt pay for them cause they are already on the car. i didn't see you mentionned city pack... =). Makes the offer even better IMO go for it

000, worth taking a look at my thread a little further back, there's a lot of feedback on all/most options.

Not much to boast about if you ask me. I just picked up a Fiesta Metal with only 5k on the clock, push button start, privacy glass and a Sony DAB radio for just over £11 grand.

 

Four grand less for a better car which is still practically brand new, a second and a half quicker from 0-60, much nicer sounding exhaust, and features a Sony DAB stereo worth £500. It's also limited edition. And the front end looks nicer than the facelift ZS IMHO.

 

Couldn't care less about built in Sat Nav as I brought the TomTom app for my iPhone for only 30 quid, which still speaks directions over Bluetooth.

 

Personally I would never buy brand new.

Enjoying yours?

Well I had a 59 reg Zetec S Fiesta, a great little car anyway, but this new one has a much better feel to the interior, not because of the leather, but as a whole.
The Metal does look sweet though, and hope you get a lot of fun out of it, because they do drive incredibly well.

Sorry 000, seems I've inadvertently hijacked your post.

I'd say go for what YOU want, and what you can afford. Everyone has their own feelings on this, but at the end of the day it's your decision.

Apologies as I didn't read your post properly, just realised the price was in Euros. Although you still paid about £1800 more than me. Each to their own I guess. I personally wouldn't pay over thirteen grand for new car that will depreciate so fast within the first two years of ownership. Unless you're on a finance deal in which case you're technically leasing the car off the finance company until the balance is paid off.

Yeah finance is acceptable. The Ford Options plan is really good from what I've been 'sold' anyway, although there is probably a reason why every sales person in the showroom was selling it. Would never spend more than 13k on a non-sparts car if it wasn't new and financed. Flush a few grand away driving it off the forecourt.
