New Car Tomorrow!

26 April 2013 - 04:20 PM

Hey hey. 


First post here but been a lurker for a bit. 


Placed an order at the start of February for a new Fiesta. 

Long story so bear with me here!


Original order was for a Titanium X in Hot Mustard. Never actually saw the mustard colour in the flesh but really liked the look of the dealer photographs and the few that were circulating the net at the time. 


Anyway, I managed to get a great deal on the price through my local dealer with a lot of neat added extras. 


As the time (slowly) passed I became more curious about the colour I had chosen and began trying to search for proper photgraphs of the car in the hot mustard. Turns out I wasn't a massive fan of it after all. It looked great in the sun (a pretty vibrant yellow) but out of the sunlight it was pretty dull and looked like it would suit the older gent a bit more. I'm 24... 


Anyway, I further had reservations after seeing the Zetec S and then a Titanium with the dress up kit added. I much preferred the look of them over the standard Titanium X and with my current car being an Abarth 500, I kinda wanted to retain some element of a sport look! 

So, I made the decision to change my order. Had no idea if it were possible but I called up and my dealer was very helpful, changing not just the colour but the model - and adding all of the extras that were standard in the Titanium X  that made me plump for that in the first place. 


I went into the dealers yesterday to sign the final documents, get my reg plate and sort my free 7 day insurance out from tomorrow when I pick the car up! 


Booked in for 9:30 am (pretty sure I'll be there earlier!  :D ) and wil finally get to see it in the flesh. 

I've been really worried about what it's gonna look like and if I will be happy with what I chose given I changed my mind halfway through the order! 


Anyway, the car will be the following spec:


Titanium 1.0T EcoBoost

Race Red

Full Leather Heated Seats

Built in Sat-Nav and Sony CD

Keyless Entry

City Pack (parking sensors etc)

Full Dress Up Kit

17' Alloy Upgrade


I did have the rear parking camera on there but a few weeks after I placed the order the dealers called to say that the camera was delaying the build until end of June  :o  so I told them to remove it. 


I didn't need all of those added extras but they weren't budging too much on the monthly repayment price (though it was stll much cheaper than my current car!) so I told them if they didn't go lower then I wanted optional extras added instead. And they basically threw everything on!  :D


So yeah, that's my story. Tomorrow 9:30am can't come quick enough! Should be a nice car! 

I will of course post pics once I have it for those interested. 


Only thing I'm gutted it doesn't have is privacy glass - not an option on the Titanium but I think it looks great on the new Fiesta. I'm pretty sure I could add that though!
