<whispers to RS> - ahem, the Titanium is the top spec model...

I don't know what you lot are on about with the Zetec S being listed 'after the Titanium' - on the configurator and in the brochure - Titanium is last. Well, Titanium individual is last but nobody wants that red interior, so it's disqualified. :lol:

And after all your waiting, it just doesn't look right in green with the chrome surrounds!!! runs away very quickly and hides giggling............ :D :D

It's actually nice to see you car, considering just how long you did wait.

Apparently you can no longer order the x pack (or the 17" wheels) on new titanium orders.
The ESP is also standard on all fiesta's made next month (this was part of the x pack).
Which is a bit of a bummer as i want a the outside look of the Zetec S with the inside and features of the Titanium, but the closest i have been offered is the Titanium with exterior style kit, leather and 16" 7 spoke wheels.
Its just not fair - if only i'd made my order 6 weeks ago...

The wait sure was long Marky! Very pleased with the car though - so far (* touches wood).

The 1.4 auto has a good powerplant & I am continually surprised at just how good/nippy it is. Could do with disc brakes all round (like my last car) but they're adequate enough.

No niggles, problems, rattles, bits falling off...yet. ;)

Btw; the photos don't do the car justice in any way, shape or form! They were taken on a lousy, wet, grey day. In the recent sunny weather we've had however - 'squeeze' looks superb when sunrays bounce off the metallic finish. It looks stunning! I am bias (obviously) but seeing as I had each & every colour to choose from...and settled on squeeze - there isn't a more vibrant, eye-catching colour out there...and I have seen all Fiesta's in all colours on the road/in the flesh now.

I know you can't get in the car if the key is in the house, in my case, 10 ft away.


Yes, the key has to be within 2 ft to get the doors open, and, inside the car to start it!

Has to be titanium.

I've got one, seems to have every extra under the sun on it, autodimming review mirror is a brill feature.

Has the exterior pack, so looks identical to a Zetec S...

Drives brilliantly, on my 120 miles a day.

And i'm 21 and dont feel like a granny...if anything its a little more chav-tastic than I would of liked coming from an Alfa Mito as my last car.

P.S Coming from the Alfa, anything that doesn't have suspension which feels like driving on bricks constantly and i'm happy

except for the chrome, and it sitting higher!

I would say titanium, after getting zetec s!
When i got my titanium, I added all you get with it now, both parking sensors, and keyless. I wanted zetec s, but wanted keyless entry, I wanted the kit, but wanted front parking sensors!

Only had the zetec s since 4pm today, and keep trying to lock it with the button on the door handle!

So far I haven't missed the auto diming rear view mirror, and auto aircon, also the cruise control, as I've done about 13 miles (been to the theatre!) Also keep leaving the lights on, and keep trying to open the locked boot, gonna take a while to get used to!!

Do you find the ride hard? I have a Titanium on order and asked the dealership to get me smaller wheels for a smoother ride.

Titanium is best, the Zetec S is okay when you're 17 and like big wheels and spoilers but I think the Titanium is a bit more sophisticated...Zetec S = street hooker and Titanium = high class escort girl :P
