I'd also recommend swapping your sponge for a wash mitt too :)

 

 

Never heard of those before, they seem very handy - can you recommend any specific ones ?

The red/black time of 8.6 secs for 31-62mph is correct, it's faster than a Mountuned ZS because the gear ratios are shorter on the red/black, so in effect it has more pull in each gear (at the cost of slightly lower MPG)

Sounds good, I'll go shopping for that tomorrow.

 

Thanks for the quick advice :-)

There's enough difference to make a difference, but it's not an ST.
To some people BHP is everything, I don't know why they didn't just spend a bit more for an ST.
Take a good read through this Thread.
I owned a 125 Fiesta ZSE back to back with the Black Edition I now have, there are differences...
Subtle but there none the less...
Even my daughter can tell as she has a Red Edition after also coming out of a 125 Fiesta ZSE.
And to cap it?
My youngest still has a 125 Fiesta ZSE and even she notices the improvements.
All 3 are much better cars in every way than my Wife's 1.6 Metal.

Thanks for this, sounds like I won't be disappointed. I do care about BHP, but it's not the main thing for me.

 

The reason I ordered a black edition is that my wife wants to take over my Fiesta, so I figured I might as well get a black edition instead of the normal ZS, as the price difference was only around 600£. (My wife currently has a Ford Ka, so it'll be a major step up for her ^^)

 

I did actually try the ST, but it fell short in multiple places:

- The Recaro seats are not for anyone, my wife got a back ache after 5 minutes sitting in them.

- The suspension is IMO too hard, I cannot imagine driving 50+ miles in one of those

- The price is much higher in Denmark (the Red/Black edition costs only 63% of an ST)

- Insurance and road tax is a lot higher too (like 2-3 times more expensive)

I've just ordered a Black Edition, but I haven't tried it yet (they had no demo car currently, they'll get one next month, and I can cancel the order if I don't like it)

 

Anyway I currently own the 125 ZS, so I'm curious if someone could explain how different they are ?

 

The primary difference I'm expecting is more pull in 3rd and 4th gear (due to lower gear ratio and slightly more power), but that's pretty much all I know so far.

 

So if anyone feels like writing a short comparision I'd appreciate it big time :-)
