It's Time To Say Good Bye

20 June 2013 - 07:22 PM

The time has come. My Fiesta Titanium has been sold to a VW dealer. The car i've ordered is a VW polo Blue GT 1.4 turbo DSG and i pick it up next week. It's been a good 3 years with my Fiesta, but after test driving the Polo, i fell in love and paid the deposit.

 

VW claim it's great on MPG, yet has plenty of performance so it's ideal for what i want in a car. I did look at the Fiesta ST but i cannot get around the styling, and to be fair both cars drive very similar but the VW won it over the road and wind noise, and the auto gear box makes it such a easy drive. Something Ford don't offer on faster Fiesta's (which is a shame). It's also got the paddles on the stearing wheel to change gears as and when i want, so gives it a more sporty drive.

 

I'm not gonna be one of them people who say "oh this car is SO much better blah blah" because each car has it's good points, and i fancy a change to what i've been driving for the last 3 years. The Fiesta is still a great car and i'll never change my view on that.

 

I do hope to still attend Ford Fair, but not attend as a show car.


Do I Change My Car Or Not...

19 March 2013 - 10:03 PM

Hi guys n girls,

 

My Fiesta is coming up to 3 years old in September and it's on Ford Options. I have 3 options, they are:

 

Pay the finance off (£5,200)

Part ex for a new car

Hand the car back and walk away.

 

But my trouble is, if i part ex the car for a new one - what do i get? I've been looking at a lot of car reviews and have come up with the following options:

 

Fiesta Titanium X (not a fan of the new looks)

Fiesta ST 2

Focus Titanum

VW Polo

Audi A1 S line 1.4 TFSI (122)

Peugeot 208

Peugeot 208 GTi

Peugeot RCZ

Renault clio

Renault sport clio

BMW 1 series

Mercedes A Class (new shape)

 

Or something else? I'm open to ideas from people, but i will NOT buy anything Vauxhall, so please keep that in mind. I'd consider any car costing no more than around £20,000.

 

If need be, i will keep my current Fiesta and wait till something new and exciting comes along - but at the moment not much seems to be around.
