If I was purchasing a new fiesta, I would go for the titanium X. Unfortunately, my budget doesn't allow me to yet purchase an MK7 :(

Have something to contribute?

This can't happen as the fiesta has sensors to check that the remote key is INSIDE the car otherwise the car will not start.

CVan't say about the dodge as I don't know.



I've got keyless and unless the key is inside the caar it will not start. Even if you stand outside by the door with the key in your hand it won't start.

Also, it won't lock if the key remains inside the car.

hope this helps

Andy

Just watched the Fiesta advert, first time since I ordered mine last Monday that I have seen it, and the car they use (I guess) is the Titanium 3 door as it has chrome fog lights and darkened glass, but it does NOT have the chrome strip running along the bottom of the window. . . .

I vote ZS, mostly because it's what I have :lol: and also I'm not a fan of chrome, it looks ok but keeping it fingerprint-less would drive me up the wall!!

Hi
I would go with the Zetec S. So that I could have the ESP. ESP is really good. (Now changing the subject) A few years ago a Mustang with ESP on it was stolen. every time that the cops tried to stop it. The ESP corrected the car.
Ford now use the video from that chase to train there sales people about ESP. I think that the video is on you tube. If anyone wants a look type in stolen Ford Mustang.
B) B)
It might save your life one day. Or give the cops a run for their money!!!!!

Your right Jonny87. I thought that when I first read the post that it was a bit odd to have a Titanium x with out ESP.
:rolleyes: Silly me.!!!!!

Can you turn the ESP off as I am sure on Top Gear they said that once fitted you couldn't

Well there's a button so I assume so...?! I am known for being wrong though. Unless it's not a button for that at all... :blink:

Have to agree with you there - we all think that we are awesome drivers but there is a very fine line between being impressive and being wrapped round a tree!

I had ESP, or whatever they call it on their cars, on my Smart and never noticed it kicking in but I am sure it saved me on more than one occasion when I was having a more 'spirited' drive around some contry lanes
