Hey Guys,

 

Ordering my new Fiesta on Monday probably, but there's a couple of final decisions I would like advice on :)

 

Gonna order:

- Fiesta ZS (125)

- 17" Wheels

- Privacy Glass

- City pack (as I suck at parking).

- Deep Impact Blue Paint

 

I'm undecided over the leather pack, it costs a bomb but could anyone who has this post feedback and maybe pictures if you have any? Also, the internet is plagued with people complaining that leather seats get way too hot the whole time in the summer, but is this really the case?

 

Also, are there any options you couldn't decide over that you have that have turned out to be really useful (or maybe the opposite?)

 

Thanks guys!

 

Then the long wait til October begins...

Ultimately, it's down to personal choice...however, not gonna lie, I hate leather upholstery!

Is there an option for half leather? I got full leather seats and while they are comfortable, on really hot days they don't help.

I wouldn't take much notice of the internet. Yes it does get a bit hot but cars do if they are left in the sun. Just put the air con on! My mums car has black leather which gets warm but it's worth it. The white leather in my dad's Range Rover doesn't get as hot.

I'd say go for it or get the car and get the seats re trimmed at a later date.

One thing I really could do with in my Fiesta is the USB/BT audio connection. Also, couldn't do without the heated windscreen in winter!

Don't know if these come as standard or not these days, but possibly worth checking to make sure they're there if you've not thought about it yet.

Yeah, both of those things are standard these days I think... On Zetec and up anyway for sure!

Thanks for the tip :)

Don't have a preference between leather and cloth. I went with the standard cloth in my Zetec and did my own Scotchgard covering. Downside to cloth is the static build up I keep getting from it. I have to keep grounding myself when I get out of the car to stop me getting shocks :D

Great choice! Ordered a deep impact blue Zetec s myself a few weeks ago. Cant wait!

 

On the leather front, personally I don't think its really worth the price. My brother works for Ford and is in a titanium X with leather at the moment. Its okay, but it doesn't feel as premium as you'd like and definitely not worth the money...in my opinion. It comes down to personal preference though.

Thanks, I'm really excited even though it won't be here until October!
Yeah, I'm thinking I'm probably leaning away from leather as the extra money per month can be better spent elsewhere (I'd like to change the alloys at some point probably, and saving the extra £20 a month would get that going nicely).

Did you go for black or black and red cloth? I think the red wouldn't be great with the blue personally!

Mine should be at the dealer towards the end of August but i'm gonna wait until September to get a 64 reg, as someone who likes instant gratification the wait is killing me aha 

 

Yeah I went for the black cloth, red and blue wouldn't have been the best combination......I recon the red seats look a naff anyway....  :ph34r:

Yeah I have to wait til October for insurance reasons (it's a long story). Ordering it now will get it done and then I can just sit back and relax!

I think if I'd gone for white or red, red seats would be okay, but not with blue for sure!

Leather is easier to keep clean than fabric but must me maintained by means of moisturizing it but as said it's ultimately down to you and I would also get the sony headunit
