Billoo - I don't understand that at all.

The Titanium has, erm, 6 pieces of chrome (front window trims x2, rear window trims x2, fog light trims x2) It's not exactly blingin' :lol:

As for too much - too much what? Cruise control - a real downside to a car :lol:

<sigh> I just want to actually get the damn thing.

Well, I've got a mk 6.5 Zetec with all the 'toys' added. I've had the car for nearly 2 years and have noticed that I don't want or need quite a lot of the toys. The Zetec-S doesn't come with that much kit which I like. If that makes sense...

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.

I had a similar choice to make too - though wasn't interested in the Titanium "X" Pack, my decision was between a Zetec S & a Titanium 1.6 TiVCT. Performance is identical due to same engine & gearbox; I went for the Titanium as you do get more "kit" for your money plus although it doesn't have the sports suspension & sports seats the roadholding's brilliant anyway & with a smoother ride than the stiffened up Zetec S, plus the seats are extremely supportive & comfy. My 3 door Titanium looks brilliant in Panther Black, which sets off the chrome on the sides, front & tailgate nicely too (no chrome on the Zetec S!) I also had the optional 7 spoke alloys on mine - these look much sportier than the standard Titanium wheels & were only 100 extra for the set. Set of mudflaps on mine also look great.

Fit the X Pack and Dress UP Kit and they will not know the difference - most girlies will loose interest in you anyway if you start going on about it being a Zetec S and how it is the better car because . . .

The Titanium comes in better colours too . .

From a visual standpoint i would say definitely the Titanium X. It looks even sportier than the Zetec-S yet even classier i think. But the Zetec-S is my choice cause its the sportier car to drive and i think it is a bit more fun.

Funny every road test I have read has said that the ZS suspension is too hard and makes the car skip about when going round corners - and it has the same engines as the Titanium's so now power advantage

I know which one I would prefer . . . . :P

Could you link me to a couple of those reviews? I havn't read that when I was doing my searching and if there is cause for concern it might be worth considering a change in order, or more likely, a change in suspension

Top Gear - Auto Express - Auto Car - take ya pic

And Ford have even been quoted as sayng that the standard suspension was the optimum setting therefore implying that anything else (ZS and Econetic) are not!

Same here man I can find anything. I don't think that Ford would put down their own model either :s

*phew* thats ok. You had me worried for a second :lol: Took a long time to decide between Titanium and Zetec S, so if something I've missed crops up I begin to worry whether I made the right decision

I know this might not help you but in my country (Cyprus) the Zetec-S is actually cheaper than the Titanium (Zetec-S is around 13.300 euros while the Titanium costs 14.150 euros). The Titanium does not come with the Start button though, yet everything else is there. Unfortunately here we only get the Titaniums in 5-door guise
