Ford Fiesta In Fashionista

12 August 2011 - 04:49 PM

I was at my dealer today (Greyhound in Accrington) and they have just received their first Fiesta in the new Fashionista paint.

My initial view of this colour (from Fords website) was that it was not a nice colour.

Seeing it up close, it does look better, but not for me!!

Looks pretty mean, and inside finish is excellent!

Ford Fiesta (Painted) Brake Calipers

01 July 2011 - 03:03 PM

Thinking of getting the calipers on my new Fiesta painted, but is this a DIY Job?

Is it special paint (I assume it gets hottish)?

What does is cost?

Any advice appreciated!!

Ford Fiesta X Pack ........ Or Not!!

I have just ordered (last Saturday 25 June) a new Fiesta Titanium 1.4 in Frozen White.

I am fortunate that as my car is being built around 19 July I will benefit from the recently announced revisions, which I appreciate.

Ford Fiesta 2012 Spec

However, there is one small thing that really grates at me, and that is the unwillingness of Ford to allow the purchase of the Titanium X Pack with anything other than the 1.6.

I have 20 and 18 year old sons who I need to insure on this car, and I can just about aford the group 9, but there is no chance of me insuring them on a group 14!

There must be a reason, and my bet is it is a financial one to get you to cough up the extra 600 for the 1.6, and for me that is not the issue, it's the extra 4600 for the insurance that I have issue with.

Has anyone else come across this issue? Is there a way to get around it?

I am thinking of writing to Ford directly, but I feel it will fall on deaf ears!!
