Ok so I have been looking at a few people's specs and alike, and have decided to make this thread.

Which would you prefer:

OPTION 1 - Ford Fiesta Titanium, (1.6TiVCT Engine) in Sea Grey with Full dress up kit, X pack (leather seats and large rims) and the Technology pack (USB, bluetooth and Keyless) 16,420

OPTION 2 - Ford Fiesata Zetec S, (1.6TiVCT Engine) in Sea Grey with Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with Traction Assist, City Pack, Bluetooth Handsfree and Voice Control and USB Connection, Auto wipers inc auto headlamps, Street Pack, Leather Pack and Side skirts? 16,440

I'm aware that the variety of options may not be what you personally would opt for, but if you were to buy one of the two which would you go for?

The only real difference is that the Zetec S is a CM lower to the ground, has firmer suspention and slightly more sporty seats, where as the Titanium has the chrome, ambient lighting, keyless start, quick clear windscreen and cruise control. (Unless I have missed anything?)

Thanks.

Personally I would (and have) gone for the Titanium.

I just find the Cruise control, ambient lighting and Keyless start more benificial than some sporty seats and a slightly firmer ride. Infact, I prefer smooth rides.

Also, i'm not as keen on the red stitching in the Leather pack on the Zetec S as I am with the white in the Titanium. I also think the chrome finishes it off well.

(lol, I know I've replyed to my own post but please feel free to join in) :D

I know i ordered the Zetec S, but the perfect fiesta for me would have been the titanium with the sports seats and suspention minus the chrome.
Oh and about 3 grand less.

titanium...

Keyless entry and ignition is enough on it's own to win that choice for me

I wanted a zetec S in hot magenta but they dont make it! I hate the chrome so priced up replacing the chrome with the black trim... downside is the front pod window and the rear windows have to be replaced as the chrome is part of the seals! but for 300-400 it will look alot nicer!!

CHROME = RANK!!!!

I disagree, but black matt vinyl would solve that if you hate it that much, inexpensive and can be done by anyone who does vehicle signage / vinyl graphics

Personally I think the chrome finishes the car off and gives it that hint of executive-ness. IMO.

Chrome me up baby! :lol: I like both the Zetec and Titanium but Titanium was my choice as I thought the price was great. Plus I love the privacy windows.

Chrome looks right on the right colour and the right car.

I have a pic of the Fiesta, 3dr in Spa Metallic (Light gold, with chrome trim, looks fine to me. Not too much chrome)

I love chrome too--I had chrome everything on my cooper s..............just a nightmare to keep shiny though!

Michelle's right though--it's purely down to personal taste. :)
