......went without hitch...

Logged in the service history as 11450 Miles and was the first of 2 free services as part of the deal.

Did it make a diference?

Actually yes, only subtle things but it did improve the drive a little.

I just lerve the engine...

Oooooh, that 3rd gear is just plain fun to use....

Maybe it went without a hitch because it was free , sorry just the cynic in me.

Does the engine sound sporty ?

Yeah, enough...

From inside the cabin it has a wonderful growl under _power_/_torque_, but is sedate at other times.

It does feel smoother however, but that is subjective...

It takes a little getting used to, mainly because of the mild turbo lag, but, once mastered, never forgotten.

It also came back sparklingly clean inside and out and all for free. COOL!

Nothing is ever free. You allways pay for it in the service costs. Just same as free carpet fitting, It's added to price of the carpet.

Well let's see if any of you cynics and naysayers can get a Fiesta S 1.0L 3 cylinder jobby for a final price of 14295 UKP, including a tank of petrol, breakdown cover, 1 weeks insurance, 2 free services and valets.

Note:- This was not a full payment one off purchase!

I always tell them not to wash my car. If i drop the sponge on the floor it goes in the washing machine. If there sponge monkey drops his, I suspect it goes in the bucket then back on the car, grit as well. Lovely.

If you make a statement like this it has to be a good one as I ordered my ZS with 17's, Privacy Glass & DAB & mine was under 14k

What is the total purchase price?

I did quote mine was NOT a one off payment.

If I had done a one off price I could have gotten mine for around 13800 or less, but while you owe them money........

I take it you's are quite young going for the lower litred cars.

Why do you say that. I'm 46 and brought one. ;) . It's a 1.0 Turbo, 123 odd BHP. Quicker and more powerful that my wife's 2.0 Focus.

Great engine, try one if get the chance.

I have had enough quick cars in my day but at 63 I no longer need 150 -350 BHP any more...

My 396SS Malibu, (Chevelle), was seriously quick in a straight line. It had 350 BHP and could smoke tyres for 100 yards or more.

It had Muncie, (box and diff), and was a 4 speed manual, but, this 1.0L S is much more fun... Sadly I can't spin the wheels in third

like I could my 396SS, but I was young then... <wink>

As for you Damien i'm 40 and i know a lot of young drivers have no choice but to have a lower litred car and not by choice as insurance would sting them. it was a simple question.

Never driven one personally, never had anything less than a 1.6 but you never know till you try.

I test drove the 100bhp zetec version before buying mine, so driving off the showroom in a 125bhp 1.0L was quite shock, it really is a cracking engine.
