White 1.6 Zetec S
Just arrived back from a 200 miles round trip to Nottingham. My first thoughts are:
Aircon, as I've never had aircon before, this was great especially today in this heat. Happy
Ride, Firm and not too lumpy and bumpy ride. Happy
MPG, I was getting between 42 & 49 MPG. Didn't go over 60 mph. Happy
Indicator lever, Didn't turn off after turning left. Not too happy
Loads of attention in the slow moving traffic, unfortuatly it wasn't for me but for the car. Not happy :P
Borrowed my brothers sat nav, got me to my destination no probs. A couple of wrong turns to test it (I know best) but it soon put me right. Happy
All in all, I'm a happy bunny today :lol: :lol: :lol:

Congratulations on the new car, can we see pictures please!!
A lot of people are having problems with the indicator issue, mine fixes if you turn the steering wheel a bit further left when you turn but I think they do take a lot to actually turn off.

Just spent 10 mins cleaning off the blood from dead flies. Took the mother-in-law to hospital yesterday for a minor op, picking her up again tomorrow or Friday.

Sorry should have said it's a petrol. I forget that diesel cars are more popular nowadays & loads of people have them.
Went to the ford dealers today for a price on a spare wheel (OH not happy with the glue thingy) and a price on the scuff plates.
dealer quoted me nearly 100 for the spare, and he couldn't find a part number for the scuff plates. Has anyone had the scuff plates factory fitted? Where can I get a spacesaver for 30 as quoted by Ford?

Don't worry about the indicator; it's a generic fault on everybody's cars.

The spare wheel is listed under optional accessories (14 x 5.5 steel wheel)--just checked it out on archers website so any dealer should be able to access it.

I've just checked my invoice to see if there was a part number quoted for the scuff plates but it's just listed as sill plates.

He found the part number for the wheel, 100 is a bit steep. He said best go to the local scrap yard.
