Fiesta Metal Limited To 1000? - Actually, It Isn't Anymore...

19 October 2012 - 11:59 AM

Hi All,

Just thought I would share some information I got recently regarding the supposedly limited edition Fiesta Metal. I was told, plus it is well publicised, that the Metal edition was limited to a run of 1,000 cars. I found out a week or so ago that actually Ford has made/sold coming up to nearly twice that amount, which Ford admitted to in reply to an email I sent. However what they did say is that it was never limited...

I thought I would do a bit of investigation, and even managed to get hold of the press release Ford gave out to the media for the car which states that it is limited to 1,000. I now have the Auto Express watchdog team on this, who will be asking Ford why they felt it was acceptable to do that. I'll keep you updated.

Great car, not so great company.

Should I Bother To...

With it starting to get darker earlier, I have been out more recently driving in the dark. I've noticed the throw of the light on dipped beam is not very far (although bright enough). I was wondering if I changed the bulbs to some like these if it would actually make any difference? - Wouldnt want to waste £30 on bulbs that are just brighter and will not last as long.

Thanks in advance for the responses.

So, Which Do You Prefer?

Small Metal 'mod'

Hi All,

Thought I would show a very subtle 'mod' I did the other day:

Now that it is done, I don't understand why Ford never put a badge on there in the first place. I personally like it, although I know some people like to debadge theirs... Maybe I have inspired some Metal owners? Could easily spray the letters black if you had a white Metal and wanted black hints instead, etc. Anyway, enjoy!

Fiesta Metal After A Few Hours...

Hi All,

I had a day off work, and so I thought I would look at using the various cleaning products I bought recently look after my car. Here are the results.. Although, my arms are now suffering from sunburn without realising! Enjoy!
