In Topic: Ford Owners Club Dealer Survey 2015

14 August 2015 - 02:00 PM

Hi. I noticed your post was in April. I have completed the survey for a couple of my local dealers, but was wondering what the expected timeframe is for collating results?  It would be interesting to see what other dealers are like.

 

Thanks for taking part in the survey. The survey is for 2015 and we have quite a lot of data to sift through with so many UK Ford dealers, but we're hoping to release the results by the end of the year  :)

Indeed.
So when are you getting your new ST then? :D

 

Not imminently unfortunately, but I wouldn't rule it out in the future.

 

Having said that, I could easily be swayed into a MK2 RS and keeping it for many years also...  B)

Heated steering wheels are for wimps with mo blood in their veins ;)

 

Definitely not necessary... but a nice touch of luxury none the less!  ;)

How did you find the journey to and from Silverstone with regards the seats?

 

This is going to be my first car with full leather seats and while they are heated for winter, I'm a bit bothered about sweaty back syndrome in summer, lol.

 

Already have a reflective sunshade for the windscreen, to hopefully stop the seats getting too scalding in the sun...

 

It was quite a warm day and I'm not going to lie I did get a very slightly sweaty back for a little bit until the air con cooled me down but not to the point that it bothered me.

 

It's a shame Ford didn't offer ventilated seats too as that is always a nice feature although they would have had to go with perforated leather to achieve that.

 

The seats are fairly heavily bolstered and quite solid but I'm sure you're aware of that. Personally I did like them and find them comfortable but I encountered a couple of people who thought that the bolstering was too much. I think this party depends on your size/shape but also on what you are used to.

Very nice review! I'm afraid I was thinking 'primer' for that colour before I even read your comment. I guess it's a marmite thing. The door protectors look like they could be good...especially if you have kids that 'throw' doors open. I've not seen those advertised before.

 

Thanks Gez  :)

 

Yep the door protectors are a pretty cool feature for only £85.
