hello hello and welcome :)

from seeing other peoples really short waiting times for their MK7's (i jest) "hand crafted" seems to be their get-out-of-jail-free card for "we like building cars quite slowly and making people wait"

anywho, your car sounds very nice. loads better than mine, but mine is lovely all the same :)

Mike I think Chris was being flippant and gets the whole long wait thing :lol:

Welcome Chris. Another one waiting here - it sucks, but will be worth it in the end. If we didn't wait we'd end up in Mazda 2s - oh no!

lol, I was but didn't want to correct him.

I am a little concerned about how nippy the 1.6 diesel will be, I couldn't find one to test drive, could anyone comment on this?

I liked the diesel and do enough miles to justify having one - but I particularly loved the petrol engine. If I'd had the diesel, I don't think I would have been upset (and I know my wallet wouldn't :lol:) and it certainly felt nippy - even grunty.

Looking at the stats i should only be 2 seconds behind you (0-62 mph), in car terms that is an eternity.

Nah - I'll be two seconds behind those with Mountune kit. I can live with that. :lol:

Sounds a lovely car Chris.

I've got a 1.4 Zetec 3 door in Ocean and I have bought and fitted a set of the titanium X alloys to it.

You'll love it.

Or not if Michelle's is anything to go by!

Now that's just nasty ;)

I hope Michelle gets it sorted soon

I genuinely feel sorry for her - the potential of that car is great and yet she has been let down over and over again. I worry that the Moutine bit is putting her off the Fiesta in general and ruining her experience of a really great little hatchback
