Fiesta Sold :(

02 December 2014 - 09:55 PM

Hi guys, as the title says I’ve sold my beloved fiesta.

 

I had a zetec s tdci and as much as it was a good and reliable car it just didn’t entertain me that much! I had it bluefinned since September and that dramatically changed how it drove. (now for sale, pm if interested, already reset)

 

But my mileage dramatically dropped from about 15k to 8k at the most, I couldn’t keep the diesel when I was doing such low mileage.

 

I had always loved the look of the Suzuki Swift Sport and have only heard great things about them. There was a nice 61 reg with 30k miles near me going for £8k, so after a test drive I couldn’t resist and bought it. It handles like a go-kart, much faster and has all the toys! I'm like a kid at Christmas.

 

it is taking quite a bit of getting used to though, its very strange not having the torque there when I need it, but it makes it more fun to drive having to rev the nuts off it!

 

I haven’t been very active really but I have looked at the forum daily and it has helped me out a number of times! Just thought id share as to why I’ve sold the fiesta, if all goes well there will be a photo of the

new swift below…


Opinions Please - Keep Or Get Rid!

11 September 2014 - 09:21 AM

Hi guys – after peoples opinion on what would be best for me.

Current got a 1.6TDCi Fiesta, was doing about 250 miles per week (which I know a few people would still consider petrol mileage, though it’s mainly motorway, so suited the driving very well).

Basically, my mileage will be dropping to 100 miles per week, tops (starting uni on Monday).Will doing 2-3 trips a month to visit the other half at uni (160 miles).

My first thought was to trade the car in for a faster petrol, but I have about 7.5k outstanding finance on it still!

Is it possible to trade in for an older car (been looking at swift sports for the mk6 ST) without paying any more per month? Being a skint student I can’t afford to pay more! Or would it be wise to just keep the car and hope it don’t run into any issues with the few longish runs I’ll be doing every now and again?

Apologies for the long post, but I’d like opinions please.

Cheers


Bluefin Fiesta Tdci 95Ps

Just to let anyone know as I haven't seen it mentioned on here.

Superchips now offer the bluefin for the 95PS fiesta TDCi. I seen it on their website and thought it must have been an error, I emailed them and they confirmed it has been available since the 17th of this month.

Think I will be ordering myself one quite soon :)

Photo Locations?

16 December 2013 - 05:24 PM

As a part of my graphic design course I'm doing I have to produce a magazine front cover. So I thought why not do one including my car?

Does anyone have any ideas of locations that would be good to take photos of the car? With some lovely scenery would be nice.

I'm from County Durham / newcastle way, wouldn't mind a bit of a drive if requires.

Thanks in advance
Tom
