Ive never been able to figure this out!

Went for a zetec S in the end, although i do wish i had cruise control....& a starter button...& now that sony head unit. I quite like the chrome too on the darker colours. hmmmm!

Did consider speccing a titanium to look like a zetec s but werent keen at all on those leather seats that come with the 17's as part of that X pack :(

Plus,i went for white which meant i could have the blue dashboard over the standard grey :D
which becomes magenta on titanium.which is too pink.

Have something to contribute?

My vote is for the Titanium, especially as I've ordered a spanking brand new 2011 Titanium in Panther Black. It'll be a nice step up from my previous fiesta as it's got the extras :D

p.s if I were 21 (again) I'd have gone for the Zetec S :lol:

I bet you're well excited! Looking forward to placing my order within the next few months.

What Extras did you go for?

Extras that I hopefully won't need, e.g. curtain airbag :lol: plus the options pack with the parking sensors etc, 16" 7-spoke alloys. I didn't go for the power start button as I just didn't like it - not sure why but it didn't appeal to me. I'm looking forward to trying out the new sony stereo...can't wait!!!

Sounds good :) yeah hopefully you won't need them :)

I'm going for the dress up kit, rear parking sensors (city pack) and I decided the Keyless Entry would be quite a cool addition :)

On the topic of this thread Titanium is the way forward :) especially as someone else in the thread said that it is easier to change a Titanium to a Zetec S than the other way round :)

How long's your wait for your new pride and joy?

Cruise control alone was enough to persuede me to buy the Titanium. I find the Titanium ride is fairly firm as it is.

The starter button is pretty cool but more of a novelty then a practicality. I prefer the look of the ZS imo but again could say thats just cosmetic and not a practicality improvement, both very nice cars tho

I had the choice of either but went for the ZS. I was buying a 6mth old car so speccing up wasn't an option.

Only feature I miss is Cruise. Have keyless entry on my Mazda 6 which although good doesn't really make life or driving any better.

The alloys on the tit were too much like my old Mondeo Tit wheels so the ZS appealed more as they were different - and easier to clean!

Seats in ZS are really comfy and the body kit just makes it look a bit different.

Both great models and really down to personal choice.

I might ask a silly question, but what happens if something goes wrong with the start button and the car won't start? Just curious...

The physical key is contained in the fob. In my Mazda the ignition key hole is just covered by a plastic cover. Therefore simple case of flipping the cover off, remove the key from the fob and start the car.

So I guess it's the same for the Fiesta as it is for the Mazda right?

There's no key hole for the ignition; if the battery in the key dies you can hold it up against the barrel and start the car with the button still. Though I've always wondered what happens if something goes wrong mid crank - don't see any way of stopping it!
