If you can, try and get the bluetooth AND USB. It is so much more convenient. I regret not reading up properly when purchasing my car without USB. :(

My 1.25 Zetec cost around 8,600 with scrappage but that was about 5 months ago, before the THREE price hikes!

Yeah i want a fully loaded zetec S.. am 19 only reason we need to get the car now is because the scrappage deal ends in march so my mum is going to use the car until am 21 next, next april, long time to wait but long time to save for mods :) i have 8 points aswel which !Removed! suck when it comes to insurance under 21's!!! :( just hope the prices wont hike until then!

thought about the titanium model aswel, is that much more expensive than the zetec S? same engine + stlying pack but loads more features

Well the Titanium has more toys on it and the Zetec-S but you'd have to pay extra for the spoiler, street pack etc on the Titanium. Then again, you'd have to pay more if you wanted toys in the Zetec-S.

My Zetec-S cost 14k a few weeks ago before part-exchange and Ford 450 discount, hope that helps.

id rather get the titanium tbh it has alot more features than a bodykit over the ZETEC S and the kit is only 500 more! seems to make sense really.

14k is not bad, did you pay all upfront?

I paid 4k on pick up with 5k left to pay by December 2011 with no APR/interest added on.

You're right, it does make sense... although the chrome doesn't look as good on a white Fiesta than the black (IMHO). What features do you want on your Fez?

8 points and you're 19? :ph34r: you hoodlum! Only messing fella B) , but by the time you're 21 am i right in saying most of your points will have expired therefore making insurance cheaper? Then again, some companies ask - "Any endorsable fixed penalties in the last 5 years?" 5! Ouch...

Let me guess: 3 points for mobile phone/not wearing seatbelt and 5 from an angry magistrate at the ## MPH you were caught doing?!

So sad that you're willing to scrap that lovely Mazda for a Fiesta. I know the new Fiesta is a nice car - but still think its evil to scrap that poor helpless Mazda for one.

ha i know,.. i dont really know how the point system works tbh? and yeah they do aswel :\ its 1300 for insurance when am 21, i can pay because i work weekends and i have my student loan. and no the points were driving with no insurance :( I know it sounds daft i only took my sisters car home which was the next street because she decided to stay at out cousins and the car cant be kept without a permit so i took it back and bobbies came and snatched me up!

I always use "drive the deal" to get a quote.

Although they are just the middle man, they do put you in touch with the dealership.
But what I do though is get a quote of them and see what dealerships can match, or even beat it local to me!

Examples I just done are:

1.6 3dr Zetec S with street pack = 12300

And

1.6 3dr Titanium with full dress up kit = 12200.

Plus you will have your scrappage to take into account, just add what ever other extras you wan't and get onto that phone or email to all your local dealers. Even a few national oneswouldn't go amiss!

I don't think I know anyone who has paid the prices on the Ford website!

Those prices quoted are for everyone, just do a google on "drive the deal"....

I paid 10930 for my 59 ZS in White with street pack on Tuesday, but I got a 1000 off that cos I work for Ford ;)

Personally i would still rather have the zetec s as it is now more exclusive than the titanium ;) and you can get the sport seats / suspension if you like that kind of thing
