One thing to add- for the central locking, just push the door handle into the door and it will lock them all. The drivers or passengers will activate the central locking this way. Also there is no issue with the gearbox. It's a common thing with the IB5 transaxle as there's no synchromesh on reverse.. Just select neural, lift the clutch, put the cluch in and go for reverse again. The steering on the fiesta is heavier than the Clio and hydraulically assisted, not electrically. Everything else is subective really. I prefer how the fez drives to a clio and driving them back to back the fiesta is a better handling car to me. Have an alignment done and check the tyre pressures also, that could be the reason for the tramlining.

Are the plugs gapped correctly? Battery? Anything like that? How are the plug leads? Fuel filter?

I use supermarket fuel usually, with shell or BP fancy every so often. I even spoke to my mechanic about it. He would recommend a bottle of fuel cleaner every so often, even if premium fuel is used. My mum's '03 X5 has been run since it was brand new on supermarket fuel and has nearly 190,000 miles on it now... We use Sainsburys or BP though, just for the Nectar points.

Fiesta in the Park? The cancelled the show in 2014, due to making a loss in '12 and '13 but could be back with one in '14. If I'm not at work I may head over. There's things like Ford Fair also. They tend to be Ford related, with a Fiesta sub-section.

Sounds good buddy. Everybody goes on about a N/A engine haha. What actualy is that?

An N/A engine is naturally aspirated. As in the engine just sucks in air. Forced indiction would be like a Turbo, supercharger or both. With a forced induction engine they can be re-mapped easily to increase the boost from the turbo/supercharger, but Naturally aspirated engines can't.
