Topics I've Started

Where's my pinned review gone?

14 January 2010 - 12:31 PM

Just wondered where my 'Fiesta Zetec' review has disappeared to. It has been pinned in the 'Important Topics' section for the last few weeks, as it seemed to be a useful article for any new potential Fiesta buyers. I'll quite understand if the moderators felt the need to remove it if it wasn't getting many hits, and they needed the space - just curious as to why it has been removed, that's all. :unsure:

Cheers,

Sarc.




--------------------

Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.4 in Colorado red, (3-door/petrol/manual transmission), QuickClear heated windscreen, bog-standard 15" alloys, chrome bits here there and everywhere, real spare wheel instead of the 'shaving foam' tyre repair kit which is normally supplied. (Would have also liked a built-in Jelly Baby dispenser, but sadly they haven't been invented yet). Ordered on 21st July. Build date: 5th September (Valencia). Delivery date: 29th Sept (2009)

If anyone is interested I've done my own, personal

Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.4 REVIEW

10 October 2009 - 10:49 AM

Hi all,

I recently posted some photos of our new Fiesta Zetec on these forums, with a link to my own 'first impressions' review of the car. Just in case anyone didn't see it, or in case it rapidly disappears down the topics list, I thought I'd post it as a separate subject. Not sure if this can be 'pinned' in any way by the moderators so it can easily be found in the future - just thought it may be useful to anyone considering buying a similar model. (As well as the write-up, the review also contains loads of photo etc.)

Anyway, if anyone's interested, please click the following banner link:

Cheers, and hope you find it useful. :)

It's finally here!

At long last, it's finally here! :D

I collected my new car from the dealers a few days ago, (sorry been so busy at work so couldn't post this sooner), and I'm over the moon. (I had a 120 mile journey home in it).

Just a few quick piccies below. I know a lot of owners have Titaniums and Zetec S Fiestas, but just thought I'd share some photos of a standard Zetec 1.4 in case anyone is interested in them. (It's also in the seemingly rare 'Colorado red' colour).

A few notes:
* 3-door, Colorado red Fiesta Zetec 1.4 (petrol/manual transmission) standard 15" alloys, leather steering wheel etc., QuickClear heated windscreen, chrome trims here, there and everywhere.
*It was ordered on 21st July, so has taken exactly ten weeks to arrive.
*The car was originally on order by the dealer, (presumably as a showroom model or demo), but they said I could have it instead, (and they would order another one for themselves later). This quickened the whole process up by two or three weeks.
*It was built in Valencia on 5th Sept.
*I got an actual spare wheel supplied instead of the 'shaving foam' tyre repair kit. (Had to actually ask for it beforehand). Didn't cost me any extra though.
*There were no optional extras ordered, so I'm guessing that helped with the overall waiting time.

And, just in case anyone is interested or possibly considering buying a Zetec, for what it's worth I've done my own personal 'First Impressions' review HERE ... (which also has loads more photos).

Cheers,

A very happy Sarc. :D

I wouln't like to meet this down a dark alley

18 September 2009 - 06:08 PM

Just feeling a bit bored :huh: ... (waiting and waiting for my car to be delivered), so decided to have another potter about with my paint program. Not sure if this is what Paul's car looks like after it's had a few shandys.

My baby has been born

It's a Zetec!!! :lol:

My baby has been born today, and is a healthy 1495kgs - though slightly red in the face! Can't wait until it's in my arms. (Better get the windscreen dipers at the ready!)

Still not sure if it's Spanish or German, (forgot to ask) ... but I'll love it either way! (A DNA test won't be necessary!)

A very happy Sarc. :D
