Finance papers have to be signed a week before collection, if the dealer didnt know it was arriving then thats probably why it was completed.
I went to my dealer a week before to sign the finance papers.
Thats great news though Dan, bet you are really pleased you'll be driving into the school gates with a brand spanking new car :-)

An excellent idea ... wake me up when September ends! :lol: (Hang on - isn't that a Green Day song?)

Sarc.


A jolly good song at that!! I'm sure the time will fly by. It's worth the wait, promise!

I'm sure it will be well worth the wait - the vast majority of people seem to be more than happy with their Fiestas. How's your own car going Flic - did it live up to expectations, and how does it compare to any of your previous motors?

My car is just great. I only had to wait 5 days from ordering so I can't relate you all you waiters, it's my first brand new car. Previously I had a 1.1 106 then a 1.4 106, so to be honest they don't even compare :lol: I've driven a fair few motors though and the Fiesta is definitely my fave. The ride is amazing, gear changes ares super smooth and most importantly cos I'm very tall, the driving position is so comfortable. I get ankle cramp after 5 mins in my Mum's Ka, but in the Fiesta it's not an issue! It's just a pleasure to drive really, I'm so excited for all you lot to get yours :D

'5 days' - blimey that was quick. :o This will be my first ever brand new car as well, which explains why I'm not used to all this waiting. It sounds like it's a dream to drive though, and the driving positioning also sounds great. (I hate being hunched up - much prefer to have plenty of leg-room). I've owned a Mk4 and Mk5 Fiesta in the past, though my present car, (which I'm putting in under the scrappage scheme) is a old Renault Megane. I'm sure the new Fiesta will far out-class any of them though.

Happy motoring. :)

Sarc.

Well he might be telling you the truth but I would not get my hopes up until he has given you a confirmed delivery date!!
