Sure its in Black and white on there web page!
I spoke to them on the telephone and was not impressed with the customers care skills, for a retail customer you was looking at another £1500 above the price quoted for a business customer.

Ah well spotted. Their policy must vary for each manufacture. Just checked and it doesn't say it for Citroen for example. Ford must be different!

The price quoted on drive the deal is for a business or self employed individuals who are VAT registered only.


Once the car / options is picked you just enter your details and its says you will be contacted by the supplying dealer within 24 hours. It worked for my friend 2 years ago on a DS3.

Hi first post on here by the way but watching this topic with interest.

Looking to change the wifes car for a 1.0 (125) Titanium X shortly. She currently has a 2010 1.6 TDCi Titanium. I use it mainly at weekends too but find it a little unrefined and noisy at motorway speeds. It seems to average 48mpg in winter and about 55 ish in summer so I'm watching with interest what you guys achieve once theyv'e loosened up a bit and also how you find the refinement. I'm hoping someone has moved from a diesel too!

Also anyone used the internet broker 'Drive the Deal'? I have a friend who used them 2 years back and had no issues at all. After a little googling they seem to be have a good reputation.

I've priced a 5 door 1.0 (125) Titanium X with £1500's of options and the price seems too good to be true!! I haven't yet been into Ford's to see what they can do though.
