I ordered a zetec s 1.6 petrol in frozen white with the following:

  • heated front screen
  • bluetooth voice control with usb
  • street pack
  • side skirts
  • automatic lights and wipers
  • climate control
  • alloy pedal covers

I ordered it from Haynes in Kent and think it is worth chasing it up again and i saw my build date on the system of 20th of May and was told it could come forward a couple of weeks as well.

Hummm, maybe. Think I'll leave it till thursday and then give it another go :) I'm happy either way, next 4 weeks are crazy for me at work anyway and im going 300 odd miles a week in that time to suits me!!

U have a cool build, mine is in my siggy! Im expecting mine to be built before the 20th of May though to be honest (from info given from dealer), I know I have not got a build date yet, but I have a possitive feeling about it ;) Will keep u posted

Yea sounds like a good idea to me :) as long as your happy with the wait though!

Thanks, i was considering the interior pack but decided against it in the end. Having the side skirts fitted as well though. I did want electric folding mirrors but only comes in pack with parking sensors which i didnt want. Keep me posted though and hopefully things improve :)

I have ordered these and there is a picture in the fiesta brochure on page 29 in top right corner and I think they look really good. Add a nice touch. Forgot to mention that I have ordered the scuff plates as well which I also think add a nice touch. Hope this helps.

hummmm, yeah! I can see the Aluminium Pedals in the brocher (page 16 in ebrochure).

It says option at cost but its not in the option/pack listings in the back?

So is it a dealer option? Or can you buy them from a part number and fit yourself?

Did not realise the pedals in my titanium would be plain black. Confirmation from a titanium owner please?

Thanks.

The alloy pedals are in the option listings on page 42 of the brochure. Described as pedal covers - alloy cappings and they were £50 when i ordered.

Titanium comes standard with black pedals the same as any other other model and are only an option on the Zetec s but i believe they can be bought from the dealer.

Yea thought you might be lol think they will fit on titanium but only an option on zetec s when you order the car. Speak to your dealer and see what they say. Do look good thought, would say there a must have if you can!

Sounds good to me, but the scuff plated etc. came as a pack for me. Shame the pedals not included? either way, on a £16K car, £50 ent much is it really. I've recommended a mate to the dealer so they Ow me £50 anyway, sounds like a plan ;)

Hi All,

I spoke to my dealer yesterday and he said that my car is due to be built on the 19th May rather than the 20th now, so has come forward one day!! lol Just wondered how everyone else was getting on with their orders? The dealer said i should still have mine by the end of the month which would of been 8 weeks since i placed the order.

Just called. My dealer is at a training session all day. :rolleyes: Like he needs to learn how to sell cars. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

My Astra was the newest car I ever had. It was 3 years old when I got it and it was faithful. I felt like I had abandoned a puppy out in the rain when I left it behind at the dealer last week. Like i was taking it to be put down.

It was very sad :(

:lol:
