That is lovely m8 - I bet you are so happy with it.

One week down, 12 more to wait for me

hope it doesnt take too long for u!

i wonder why u guys in the uk have to wait way longer than me, but i guess its probably because of the right steering wheel.

Probably get it quicker in Austria as it's only just over the border from Germany - where they're made?!?!

Have to say that it is not often that a car comes out that just makes the previous model look so out of date. The last Ford to do it was the Focus when it took over from the Escort and that time they re-named the model to make sure that there was no confusion and to be honest I am surprised that they did not do it again with this new model.

Hope mine will turn heads too - 3 door Titanium in Squeeze with the Dress Up and X Pack

word!

urs will look gorgeous too... the dress up kit is a must on this car it makes it look so much better.

yesterday i could compare mine with all the other fiestas in the showroom, and i was so glad i took the dress up kit.

btw since my car has been at my dealer for 2 days many ppl said they would take a 3drs because it looked so much better, but then the dealer told them this was due to the dress up kit :P

Hi, I love the colour and I think id quite like that colour next time - as I am not allowed black!!!!!

why arent u allowed black?

i thought u wanted ur fiesta in black in the first place...

but i wasnt too sure if ocean wasnt too dark of a blue, so it wouldnt fit the sportyness of the kit, but now im glad i took it.

vision blue would have been the other alternative but i guess this would have been too bright for me.

Should do, as Squeeze is a good attention-grabbing colour! I think it really suits the Fiesta (though ours is a white one, which is also pretty smart).

I believe Ford were all set to call our car the Ford Verve (like the show car prototype) but then decided that there was so much positive history with the Fiesta name that they should keep it. I would have quite liked Verve, I think...

Hi hedgepig & indeed everyone else.

I am indeed considering the all-new Fiesta - although after weeks of contemplation - I'm still no nearer making a decision!

I currently drive a Citroen C2 1.6 VTR which is on the Motability scheme & due for replacement this coming September.

I've narrowed my options down to the Fiesta, the new Mk6 VW Golf, and the Mazda 2. The TSi Golf is very nice & very powerful

with its 1.4 turbo-charged engine & 7-speed DSG (auto) box. All that comes at a hefty advance payment though (almost a grand infact).

The Mazda 2 is a lovely car...but not available at this moment in time in the UK with an auto box. It is however due here "this summer"

(so Mazda inform me) in automatic version - but I have to order a new car around the beginning of July in order to allow for the build/

delivery of my new car for the swap-over in September. As most of you will know; European car factories close down for 3 weeks in the

summer to allow the workers to have their holidays.

Finally - there's the new Fiesta. I like the Fiesta...and it's available in automatic too! I'd probably go for the 1.4 Titanium auto - and

in Squeeze.

VW?

Mazda 2?

Fiesta?

Decisions decisions!

Yes, I must admit that squeeze has really grown on me since I bought mine.

Maybe if I were buying now I might be tempted to go squeeze...... :lol:

One of my bosses has the steptronic turbo charged 1.4 Golf and I'm trying to wangle a go it but to no avail yet! :lol:

Seriously though, the Fiesta's probably a more sensible bet depending on your circumstances of course. :unsure:
