In Topic: Considering Between A Fiesta Zs And A Suzuki Swift Sport

Yesterday, 07:39 PM

I'd go for the Swift Sport, I had the older shape one and it's one of the only cars I regret selling. It was so much fun to drive. I've gone back and forwards wondering if I should get a new one but not sure I could live with the harder ride of a warm hatch now I'm getting older. The Fiesta interior does look better, but having had a MK7 Fiesta they'll both rattle like mad a couple of hours into ownership  :(

The ZS looks too jazzy for what it is IMO. It's not at all fast, yet it gives the impression that it is, like the dreaded Vauxhall special edition.


In Topic: Why Won't Anyone Buy My Fiesta? :(

I just think people don't necessarily have a large sum of money for car buying, most probably buy with finance, or if they are paying cash they'll buy from a dealer for peace of mind. I've tried selling privately before and failed, I ended up selling to WBAC but did get a fair price.


In Topic: 1Lt Ecoboost 125Bhp Or 1.6 125Bhp Engine

Yesterday, 10:19 AM

I currently have the 1.6, but my dad rented an Ecoboost model a couple of weeks back and let me have a blast of it. I thought it sounded like a bag of spanners, completely put me off buying one. I'd expect if they're going to put a noisier engine in then they'd put extra sound insulation in to make it as quiet and refined as the previous engine, or else what's the point? A new car that's less refined than its predecessor? In addition to that I get 43mpg from my 1.6, whereas people seem to be struggling to get decent figures from the Ecoboost.

I think Alloygator are the best ones but you have to let your tyres down to fit them.
