OMG !!!   I LOVE my car !!!   Finished work just before 3-30pm so headed up to the garage even although I said I wouldn't be up until 5-30pm.  It wasn't quite ready, but it let me tell them NOT to put the whacking great Arnold Clark sticker on the back window ..... I don't "do" dealership stickers !!!!!  

 

It's a world away from my old 1.25 2011 Fiesta Zetec.   Something actually happens when I put my foor down now !!!!   I'm so chuffed it's nae real !!!  

 

Can't wait to get it out into the country and give it a good run, coz so far it's just been in town and I want to be even more impressed !!   Oh, and the hill start thing .... love it !!!   I thought I had it in my old one, but if I did, it clearly didn't work !!!!! 

 

The gears are a good bit higher i'm finding.  Normally I could be in 5th no problem, but hardly got into 5th today at all, and when it was, it felt like it shouldn't have been.  Another reason to go out and about to give it a good run.   Love the blue dials as well.  Pity the ambient lights weren't blue too .... that would be cool.  I know I could change then, but i'm female and can just about fill up my window skooshers !!!!!!!

 

All in all ..... very happy so far.    :D  :D  :D

Hey Jackie

 

Great news!

 

Have you got any bigger pics for us to see? Know what you mean about the gears.

 

First thing I did was take off the gaudy Arnold Clark sticker. I always take these things off.

 

Not driven in the dark yet so not see the ambient light. Might have a look tonight.

 

Got a couple of pics today while parked in the Chapel St car park (dentist visit) The 'S' badge on the front looks good.

 

Might try and arrange a 'mini Scottish meet' if anyone is up for it to show off their new cars  :P

When I had my 2 zetec s's I got the badges for the front grille .... looks cool.   Mine were the older style models tho.   ouch ... Dentist !   Mine you, it's a cracking day and I just keep looking out of the window at work at my car coz the sun is on it !!!!!

Being a bit of a photographer myself it's probably best not taking a pic in sunshine.

Early morning would be best.

A bit of product plugging here.......I bought this last week:

Quite brilliant stuff. Puts a nice gloss on the car and water just beads off.

 

Just thought I would share the link.
