hey you guys, are you missnig something here, YOU are the paying customer here, YOU tell the dealer when you want to pick the car up, at the end of the day you pay their wages,  tell them you will cancel the order and spend your money else where. I used to work in a large ford dealership, we used to do pick up at midnight on the 1st January and 1st august, its called customer satisfaction, you only have to make a bit of a commotion in the preferably busy show room and they will soon come round to your way of thinking.

I'm not forceful enough !!!   Anyway, i'm getting it tonight so it's not too bad !   On my way to work I didn't see any 63 plates at all, which I was surprised about.  I did my rebellious bit tho .... I didn't clean my car !!!!   OK, I hoovered out the inside and polished all the plastics, but as for the outside ... NOPE !!!   Mind you, it wasn't bad coz I did it last week-end anyway. 

 

I WILL be informing him tho that I konw he lied to me and that cars WERE picked up yesterday.   I don't mind having to wait, but i'd rather I was told the truth than be lied to .... I don't like that at all.

VERY nice.   Do you like it then ??   The black is stunning when it's all shiny and clean.  I'll miss my black Fiesta, but still really looking forward to having the Candy Blue.  My brother told me yesterday that he had seen on the road and didn't like the colour.  Pffffft ..... boys !!!   Mind you, he's colour blind as well, so maybe he sees it differently to me .... who knows !!!

 

Have fun on your holidays with your new "toy" !!!!!

 

Jackie

Hi Jackie

 

I'll keep a lookout for your car from tomorrow onwards. Was at Tesco this morning  :)

 

The candy blue is nice, a neighbour has an older style Fiesta that colour. The aluminium detailing on the Titanium will bring the colour out.

The car your neighbour has would have most likely been vision blue. I think Candy Blue only became available on the facelift (mk 7.5).

Lovely looking motor you've got there. I considered black too but in the end was just swayed by Candy Blue.

 

Best to avoid claims about it being "very fast" though. The 1.0T (125) is a cracking engine but its no rocketship.

Hi

 

Yes, on looking at it now the older colour does look a little lighter. Think the candy blue is a bit deeper, richer colour.

Hi

 

Fast enough for me, a lot faster than my previous Polo!

It certainly handles well and is quick enough to be a fun drive. I'm just saying that some may disagree with it being "very fast".

 

Speed is all relative, of course and you've definitely upgraded no matter what polo you had.

Hi

 

I should really say acceleration and not speed.

 

Certain roads where I live the Polo 1.4 struggled to get acceleration up. The Zetec S has no problem whatsoever. I can feel like a man again B)
