I note that in the latest Ford colour line-up, Morello (like mine) has been dropped and a strange muddy brown added. "Fashionella" or something it is called. Odd how car manufacturers keep changing their colour choice. I assume the reason is that they weren't selling too many Morello cars. I wonder how many muddy brown cars they will sell ? When I bought my Hot Magenta Fiesta (08 MY) there were 15 colour choices. That dropped to 10 in the 2010 MY brochure.

Dark cars/vans always look better with chrome as opposed to light colors and chrome.

Personally for the fiesta, white is best B)

After owning my Pather Black Fez for 6 months I'd definitely go for another colour next time, Squeeze is probably my favourite followed by Colorado Red. I loved the look of Hot Magenta in the brochure but when I saw it in real life it just didn't seem to pop, just looked like plain old maroon.

Although very smart when clean, worst colour for showing dirt, in my opinion, is black. Black is also the worst colour for showing watermarks after washing. Best all round colour is silver, a bit boring but very practical. I think my favourite colors are various shades of red and blue (but not at the same time !!).

Spot on, Silver hides a multitude of sins. Mine (BMW) can be cleaned the same day as the Fiesta but after a week the Fiesta will look filthy whereas mine can go a month without looking too bad. Of course, close up you can see, but from a distance they look clean, just a darker shade of Silver.

Just spent all weekend detailing the Fiesta ready for winter and it looks stunning but I just know if the wife has been out in it today in the rainy conditions it will not look a patch on how it was yesterday.

Yes, Keith, my morello Fiesta often gets mistaken for black and has some of the same disadvantages. The water around here is very high in mineral content and I find it almost impossible to wash and dry it without leaving some watermarkes even with a high quality clean leather. That's why I often take it to the lads at a local handwash even though it costs me 6 - 7 as they somehow seem to manage a much better job .

Don't think I have ever seen one. Looking at the Sept 08 brochure, Spa was one of fifteen colours available at the time and looks a nice colour but difficult to tell from the small picture. Morello like mine is now discontinued and was already fairly rare.

My 1st Fiesta (3dr) was Hot Magenta. Quite rare when I got it then everyone and his dog got one too as it was the colour featured in the ad.

I was lucky enough to be able to change it 14 months later (for a 5 dr) and got Squeeze, then it came up on the next ad and everybody wanted one of those.

I collected my new Fiesta on Tuesday. I wanted Morello but they've discontinued it. When I looked on Ford website I thought I liked the new colour so headed to the garage to see if they could show me a bigger colour sample. Not only could they show me a bigger colour sample, they also had a 3dr Fiesta in Fashionista sitting by the door of the showroom. They checked the system to see if they could get me a 5 door 1.25 Zetec. There were none anywhere, but 1 was due to come off the production line about 10 days later. It was reserved immediately. At the moment there are not a lot of them made, so I might manage to have a unique car for a while. Unless Ford decide to feature this one in their latest ad. In which case I want to claim commission as it seems every colour I choose becomes very popular.

It's a more golden colour than it looks on the website. Long may it continue to be different :)

I've looked at fashionista on the website and I have to say - I really like it ! I was unsure at first and I don't like the name but what's in a name ? If I have another Fiesta it would have to be fashionista.

I have to agree with other people here that black & white both look great but are a bugger to keep clean. Silver definitely hides dirt the best and is easy to wash but it is a very dull choice.

I have Morello which suffers a bit like a black car being a very dark colour but I knew that would be the case and it was still my first choice despite of this. Morello does seem to split opinions about what colour it appears to be. In the two weeks I've had the car it has been decribed as purple, magenta, burgundy, aubergine, black and brown!

About 10 years ago I had a dark aubergine Escort Si which was a cracking little car and the Morello very much reminds me of this...

Cheers

Rog
