Micro "chipping"

02 June 2013 - 09:16 PM

I've had my face-lift Fiesta Zetec 1.25 now since the beginning of February and am still loving it. It's a moondust silver.


I work hard to keep it clean and don't find that to be a chore, I rather like cleaning it. Being particular though, I can't help but notice that on the bonnet there are a few little chips in the paintwork, likewise near the spots and what I call the "ramscoop" areas, the sculpted points underneath the lower front grille.


When I say chips, I mean tiny tiny chips. Like you can't see them really unless you're close up and cleaning it, but because I know that they're there, I can't help be disheartened by it.


I've never owned a car from brand new before and I suspect this is just one of those things you have to learn to accept, but I've counted about 5 in all. Is that normal or should I be worried?

Mk7 Facelift Drls

Hiya, new member here.

I shall be taking delivery of a facelift Fiesta in February as my company car. The model I'm getting is a basic spec Zetec 1.25 - I have test driven a 1.4 and also played in a friend's 1.4 current look Mk7 and really enjoyed driving both.

I am wondering what the headlight design with non-LED DRLs looks like - does anybody have any pics? All the promotional materials show the LEDs which are reserved for the Titanium models but it seems that Zetecs get DRLs which I assume are incandescent? I'm assuming it's not just a case of the sidelights being on, since the base Studio & Edge facelifts don't appear to employ DRLs at all.

Anybody know?
