Fiesta Metal Drum Brakes Or Drum Breaks ?????

19 August 2012 - 11:12 AM

Quick question -

The drum breaks on the back of Fiesta Metal.... Are these any good or would you recommend converting to discs.

I haven't seen drum brakes on a car for quite some time and wondered why Ford chose to put drums on a car that potentially need stopping power more than most...! Odd choice?????

Has anyone done the conversion?

Evening All -

Firstly, great site you've got here. Nice to see some great looking cars and knowledgeable people.

Picked up my (new to me) Fiesta Metal on Tuesday. Delighted with it. Didn't know much about the car before buying it. I was looking for a Zetec S but happened to see this car on ebay from a local Ford dealer. Luckily I was in a position to go there and buy it immediately. Didn't even know what I was buying but really liked the look of this car, so bought it and then set about investigating what I'd bought. Could have gone badly I know but lady luck was on my side that day.

The car has usual upgrades such as,
Sony Stereo with upgraded speakers - This is a superb sound with amazing quality. Comes with Bluetooth - Voice control etc
Centre armrest - This is a little annoying as can't use the handbrake when it's down.
Rear spoiler - Mine looks different to the others - Presume this is an aftermarket part.
Grey paint - I believe this is also an added element.

I've popped some pictures below. Hope you like it.

Thanks - Andy
