i domt let ne one drive my demo unless i really have to hahahaha im to mean!


Totally the opposite to my dealer then! I hadn't even walked into the showroom before someone asked if they could help me. I said I wanted to test drive a Fiesta 1.6 Titanium. I was walked from one end of the showroom to the other, where I shook hands with another guy, who promptly left to bring the car round to the front. It probably took all of 2 minutes from getting out of my car to getting into the Fiesta! :lol:

I was expecting (being relatively young at 23 and all) some rigourous checks of my drivers licence, questions about my driving history (acciedents etc.) and so on. Nope, Nothing. I could have been a loony with no licence, but they never checked. They must have been desperate for a sale! (They even tried to sell me the demo car, but it was the wrong colour, too many doors and no tech pack :P )

P.S. Lovely car! I'm jealous.

we have loads of fiestas (mostly 2nd hand) so always try and get customer out in what they want to buy..

demo is a 1.6 tdci titanium so only a small number ever wanted to drive it, most were 1.25 and 1.4 petrols or 1.4 tdci :)

as for test driving never even look at license! unless cars going out for 2-3hrs then we take a copy...

at the end of the day no point driving a 1.6tdci if u want a 1.4 zetec petrol and vice versa! all drive different

My dealer said that they can't get enough 1.6 TDCI's in to meet demand so they never had a demo with that engine - and the Ti VCT were even rarer!

I test drove a 1.6 tdci titanium and bought a 1.4 petrol titanium. But my test was more to see what the car felt like, obviously the engine was going to be different.

The demo I drove was a ZS Ti-VCT, but this was on December 1st (I think) at a small Ford dealership on Anglesey (Island that sticks off the top of Wales :lol:)
My local Evans Halshaw currently has a car identical to mine (but with the 1.6 TDCi engine instead) as their current demo/managers transportation :lol: among other cars..

That's a great looking car you've got there. Love the alloys :)

Never managed to find a 1.6tdci demo, so ending up buying it having only driven a 1.4 petrol... oh well :P

What pioneer upgrades are you getting, and where from? I'd quite like BOSE or similar speakers, though I've only briefly heard the factory ones...

I hired a 1.4 Zetec for a weekend as we needed the extra seats over what we had in the Smart and that was what decided me on the new Fiesta.

TBH I think, if you are thinking about changing your car, and you can get it, that for the 50 for a weekend, it is well worth hiring a car out as it means you get a decent road test. I did all types of driving in mine including a 200 mile round trip to north London. (I did the same thing with a corsa a few months later . . . . what a hateful little ugly car that is!)

I did the same thing, hired for a week and completely loved the car - the new generation corsa and clio don't even come close

Pioneer do a full range of ford approved speakers which are available through ford dealerships.... you need to buy fitting kits aswell but there not badly priced....

fitting is probably the same as the speakers tbh!
