After virtually a six month wait my new company car was finally delivered today.
I am now the proud owner of a 2.0 163bhp mondeo titanium x business edition in Panther black.
I ordered the car with Windsor leather interior, rear spoiler, xenon headlights, heated and cooled front seats and the rear seat dvd entertainment system.
My first impression of the car is "wow, what a machine"
The car is so quiet and comfortable I am in genuine shock.
The car looks right in Panther black compared to the silver and white ones I've seen. It just looks much classier.
The touchscreen navigation system is brilliant, not only does it have a quality screen and navigation but it has a great sound quality. Albeit not quite as good as the Bose system that was fitted to my Audi A3 black edition I have just handed back today.
One small query I have relates to the parking aids.
Why is there no visual display on the convers+ screen when reversing to indicate how close you are to something? I would have thought a car of this quality would have such a system.

Do you have a reversing camera or just the sensors?

 

My Focus has an overlay you can switch on or off, to show how close you are to things.

No camera, just the sensors.

Sounds brilliant - I'll have to keep an eye out for it  ;)

 

Looking forward to the pics   (inside and out of course).

That does look nice and I think your right. Black is the right colour.

Thank you, it's taking a bit of getting used to as it feels massive compared to my A3

Nice, black really suits it.

Are you allowed to change anything on it? I always think the honeycomb sport grill suits the current Mondeo really well.

Not sure about the sensors giving a visual indicator then, might be worth digging around in the settings or see if any on screen options appear when the sensors are active.

I tend to agree with you about the grill, I'm not sure if it will look a bit daft tho with the car not having the bumper extensions etc on it.
How do you turn yours on/off? Is yours just the sensors too?
I've looked through the menu and I can't see anything relating to the parking aids at all.

How much do the rear screens cost as an extra?
My missus has a set of those horrible DVD players in mine. Eyesore!
I wonder how hard they are to fit aftermarket??

I think they were something like £1700 as an optionbut to be honest it didn't add too much to my lease payment so I just went with it

Looks good. The whole DVD setup looks neat too.
