Are you referring to what Ford described to mention as a holder for spectacles? My new Tit X has this although it barely fits a small pair of specs.

The low fuel warning appeared on my new Toy X automatic at 40 miles. The petrol gauge was only just in the red section.

In Topic: Spare Wheel

I have a space saver spare wheel (£25 ebay) as well as the inflation kit. It is good advice to specify a spare when ordering a new Fez. However, you cannot spec a spare wheel if you also want a detachable tow bar.

The great advantage is that with a spare wheel your punctured tyre might be capable of repair. If you use the kit most tyre dealers will not repair it and you are stuck with new tyre as well as cost of replacement kit. If the kit is unsuited for the puncture or does not work then you are stranded.

In a growing number of circumstances one would call a breakdown organisation to get you on your way rather than do it yourself.

In Topic: New Fiesta Titanium Or Titanium X - A Couple Of Questions

The Tit X is brilliant. Here are some of the highlights of my 4 week old car.
- I chose Frozen White and washed/waxed the car a few days after taking delivery. It looks stunning.
- I ordered it with a detachable tow bar (which prevents specifying a spare wheel)
- I have the adjustable boot floor which is brilliant as a spare wheel (purchased for £25 gumtree) fits perfectly under the raised floor and the Pet Pack works well with it
- The TIt X comes with half leather as standard and for only £250 you go for full leather which is what I had.
- My last indulgences were Satnav, the Active City Stop and front sensors.
My car is the automatic (Powershift)

Minor irritations
- the doors do not lock automatically when car is in motion (a feature in most cars I have driven).
- the lack of grab handles above door on driver and passenger sides.
- lack of height adjustment and lumbar support on passenger front seat.
- quite restricted load space in rear. It is pity that seats cannot be removed if desired.

I have used the +/- buttons to change speed but prefer using the accelerator until I have reached the desired speed then SET. This is all quite new to me and I may change my practice in the future. The accelerator pedal seems more intuitive than the steering wheel controls.
I find CC quite amazing and very relaxing.
Tks for your input.
