Last night in sainsburys car park (yeah I know I spend too much time in sainsburys lol) I saw a cream coloured mk7 fiesta (same colour as Ms Mashed) but the number plate was EU08 *** now I could have sworn, in fact I know that the new fiesta didnt come out until Oct last year which should have made it EU58 *** reg, am I right? it definately was an 08, I walked around it twice, I drove past it twice, am I going mad or what?

Have something to contribute?

could have been a private plate? your only allowed to make the car 'older' when changing plate so that could explain?

My titanium is on an 08 plate too! It was a pre-release demonstrator and was a registered in Peterborough (AFO8 ***) to 'Ford demonstration fleet' before I got it. I bought it from a garage who buys directly from Ford, he had a couple of 08 plate Fiesta's in there.

I was told at the garage that Ford let their managers use these cars for a couple of months and then change them (something to do with avaoiding being taxed on a company vehicles I think, but dont quote me)

I'm not bothered though, the reg means nothing when they change them every six months. You buy a brand spanker and six months later its old :(
I'm happy knowing I bought a spec'd up car with optional extras I've not had to pay for and a car with tiny mileage for a fraction of the cost of a brand spanker! ;) ;) ;)

So I didnt imagine it then lol, it definately was not a private plate - no one would have chosen the combination, I cannot remember exactly but it had a z in the end digits. EA58 was my original plate, so knew it was registered somewhere near to me.

Michelle, how's the upgrade doing on the car?

I'm still toying with having mine done, with maybe a few other extras..........

Just awaiting confirmation from you really that yours is OK. ;)

Unfortunately not--I'm afraid it was too dear for me.

Gutted as I really really fell in love with it but that's life I'm afraid! :(

John, car is going in on Monday to have the latest ETIS file put onto it, hopefully this will be my final trip to Mountune, they are extremely confident that the power loss problem has been solved, time will tell. Also my new wheels arrived at Mountune today so they will be going back on my car at the same time, oh and I am meeting with Dav as he is driving down and having his upgrade done on Monday.
