Depends what you mean by a bit-
Ford Fiesta 1.6 Metal 3d
Engine Size 1596 cc
Cylinders 4
0-60 mph 8.4 secs
Top Speed 121 mph
Power Output 132 bhp
Torque 160 Nm 118 lb-ft
Weight 1045 kg
Ford Fiesta ST 1.6 EcoBoost ST 3d
Engine Size 1596 cc
Cylinders 4
0-60 mph 6.7 secs
Top Speed 139 mph
Power Output 179 bhp
Torque 290 Nm 213 lb-ft
Weight: 1,163kg
Its worth the upgrade IMO.

I have a metal & love it but have to agree with Gary that it would be worth the upgrade, my decision now is the fiesta or the focus st

In Topic: Washing Your Fiesta

I have had my metal from new since November & have become quite anal about washing it.
I normally wash it about every 2 weeks & I do it like this
Power wash
meguiars snow foam shampoo with snow lance
Power wash
Hand wash using meguiars shampoo with lambswool mitt & 2 bucket method
Power wash
I have never dried it or polished it yet & it still shines like it has just come out of the show room
The alloys are a nightmare but it helps that mine are black lol

In Topic: Is This A Good Deal?

I see what you mean, but i dont think i'll intend to buy the car after the two years, instead swap it for another one. I was under the impression that its around £6900 Minimum future value, does that mean that if the car is more than that after the two years, i would get the profit to put towards another car?


Is it a decent deal at £124 for £1000 deposit then? (The deposit is coming from a part exchange)


Yeah, its 2 years. I chose this because its less APR at 4.9%


As far as i can remember, its around the £6900 mark. 

Might be me being stupid; but why should i put less deposit down if i was to get a new car after the two years?



I presume this is on ford options?

From memory at the end of the 2 years you have 3 options


1, hand the car back and walk away with nothing

2, pay the remaining finance £6900 and the car is yours

3, use the equity in the car as a deposit for your next ford, doing this they will normally offer you more than the future minimum value.


Remember that talking out an agreement like this there is a maximum number of miles you can drive it each year without getting charged a per mile premium. You can choose how many miles you are allowed to drive but increasing the allowed mileage will change your finance payments and minimum future value.


4, another option at the end of the 2 years is to change to another make of car, if they are offering you a better trade in price for your car. Just as in No 3 above they will pay off the finance with ford and you can use the balance as a deposit.

But in answer to your original question, yeah I think that this is a good deal & I agree why should you pay less of a deposit. A larger deposit means less finance.
