Hi there. I'm a first time ford owner. Bought my baby in November 2013 changed from a Citroen c4 (don't judge me) to a 1.6 fiesta econetic. I have to admit I loved it from the start and cannot think what I would do without Roary. Yes he has a name and because I am a girl my cars have to be boys. Any hints and tips on looking after him are most welcome :) looking forward to getting to know you all.

Welcome to the family Scott, but I would say start your own thread, that way you can show off your car and have everyone say a personal hello :)

The Clio had many names in its time with me Crap Bag was its favourite and when my niece was little as Crap Bag was not appropriate it was clio bang bang as she thought it made a banging noise.

Hi welcome Lindsey! Mine have had boys names too for same reason. Although my first car (mk4) I didn't name, I've had Norman (Mk 5) and my current car is Norris (mk6.5) relevant to number plates!
