When you close the mirrors they don't touch the deflectors so won't be a problem :)

I had a mk5 gti and got rid of it as I hated it for my current mk7 metal and the difference is just unbelievable in grip alone I can corner alot faster than I could in the gti and even raced one over two roundabouts to which I left in the dust but straights he would of dominated the spec is much better in the fiesta only thing the golf had that my fiesta doesn't is dual zone climate but thats not really an issue and the golf didnt even have bluetooth

The mk5 golf entered production in 2003 and finished in 2009 lol, no wonder it doesn't have the mod cons etc, your Fiesta is like 4 years newer!

Unfortunately I don't agree that ford is on the same level, being faster doesn't make a car better.

Reliability aside Vw interior quality, layout and feel is superior to ford. Look at the mk7 golf dash compared to the mk3 focus. All the buttons and that gloss panel dash does not have the feel of a Vw golf mk7.

Ford wins on performance no doubt and that's not questionable.

Comfort wise Vw suspension is better for British roads in my opinion but it isn't exciting to through around corners like ford is. We may not want to admit it but it isn't just a mind frame, Vw has good resale value and superior body rust quality over ford, the badge carries weight, it all ads up.

If given the choice I would choose a Vw golf gti over a focus st but with my own money I'd buy the St.

It isn't worth getting too heated about it because it all comes down to what the badge is worth, a mclaren badge eats up a lexus badge, a Vw badge eats a ford badge, a ford badge eats a vauxhall badge. Keeping in mind a vxr astra is faster than an ST and looks very good. Where as a gti is "boring" compared to an ST, it's also less fun.

Ford doesn't even offer xenon for the fiesta St, Vw offers it for the polo
