Hi all,

 

First time poster!

 

Currently drive a 13 plate White Fiesta Zetec 1.25L on the Ford Options finance scheme, had the car 9 months now and have just ordered a White Ecoboost 125 Zetec S! Been told it's about a 6 week wait for a factory order and wondering how acurate this is if anyone else has ordered one recently?

 

And also what modifications can I make on a finance scheme, as I think the White one's look awesome with Red Ford badges!

 

Only been waiting a week and it's killing me already!

Hi Alec, welcome and good choice of colour. Not sure on mods but if you do small ones that you can reverse I can't see any issues.
Your gonna love the ecoboost engine.
Roger.

Thank you! And that was my thinking also, as long as I can reverse the changes whenever I have to take the car in.

Yes all I've heard is praise about these Ecoboost engines, I never even got chance to test drive one as the deal I was offered was too good to turn down and considering I love my car now, I'm pretty confident I will also love the Zetec S!

You will definitely love the ZS. I upgraded from a 1.2 fiesta and the power increase is amazing.

It is far superior to the 1.25! You will enjoy it. When mine went in for it's first service, they gave me a 69bhp KA as a courtesy car. My god it was slow. My ZS felt super quick once I got back into it.

 

On the flip side, my ZS (when giving it some beans) felt slow after test driving the ST-2. So I ended up taking the dealers offer and ordering one lol!

 

Although the ST-2 has more kit and is obviously faster, I still say the ZS ecoboost is the best all rounder. Free road tax and very nippy indeed with 50mpg easily achieveable on a steady cruise.

 

I just could not resist the ST-2 deal lol

Great choice, best colour, did you get any options.

 

 

As for delivery i wont tell you how long mine took, but apparantly its a bit quicker now.

Yeah the ST is a little out of my price range, and only being 19 I would find it difficult to insure, wheras the Zetec S is only going to cost me an extra 6 quid per month to insure! Although I am very jeslous, i do love the ST's!

 

Thank you! Only extra was the white paint, I'm not sure if im going to keep the car after my 2 years are up so I was a bit reluctant to add many options, and they come with some pretty cool kit in comparison to the W reg polo I was driving less than a year ago lol!

Nice one Matt, great little engine this ecobeast, you will have lots if fun.
I've come from a MPS and I thought at first big mistake should have have gone for the ST, glad I didn't change my mind, you can still have fun in this & it gives you more for your running costs.

Greenhouse28, welcome to the fast increasing ZS gang as I also currently have one on order & 6-8 weeks seems like the lead time at the moment give or take

A lovely mod to any fiesta are the Dectane rear light clusters. They bring the rear lights right up to date without it looking like an obvious or chavvy mod. Full LED.

I don't think they fit the mk7.5 though
