Driving Dutchman's Achievements

  1. More on the blue oval badges: https://www.carscoops.com/2022/09/ford-has-run-out-of-brand-badges-and-model-nameplates-leading-to-delay-of-shipments/
  2. "Funny" news in my newspaper today (translated from dutch) "Like many other companies, Ford is struggling with parts shortages. That shortage is so acute that about 40,000 cars cannot be delivered because they are still missing essential parts. This usually concerns chips, but there is also a shortage of the iconic oval brand plates that adorn the hood. Alternative solutions were sought, such as pictures from 3D printers, but these did not meet the quality requirements. A car can also drive without a brand plate, but driving without a brand will not happen for the time being as far as Ford is concerned."
  3. The dutch Ford-site offers 2 pricinglists: Style: Titanium, ST-Line, Active (Titanium Estate being the only diesel) Normal: Titanium (X), ST-Line (X), ST-X (Titanium X Estate being the only diesel) Connected and Vignale are gone. 10% increase. Oh, and an indicative price increase of €1200 per januari 2023 for the hybrids
  4. If someone is waiting for a Puma or EcoSport in the UK. Please wait some more months.😟
  5. Hello, I'm the (now registered user) guy from Holland who is now waiting for week 5 2023 for his car. Ordered, via LeasePlan NL, by the dealer at December 21, 2021 and given delivery week 17, 2022 (last week of April). No communication til week 18 when in an email I was told that is was postponed to week 35, 2022. Last week I got another email saying it is postponed to week 5, 2023. I ordered: Focus 1.0 EcoBoost Hybrid 125pk Titanium Wagon 5d, Fantastic Red with: Family pack, Parking Pack, Winter Pack I think the delay is in the Family Pack as it contains the handsfree opening and closing functionality of the backdoor. I read somewhere that it needs some hardware not in supply. So for the moment I have only some CGI pictures....
  6. Hello, my name is Richard and I am from the south of the Netherlands (Ik kom uit Brabant). My first Focus was a Mark I (Moondust Silver StationWagon). Then I wandered off and got a China Blue Peugeot 307 SW. Back on track with a Candy Red Focus Trend Business, an Opel Meriva (luckily not for long) then again a Focus Trens Business also in Candy Red. These were/are all so-called 'lease' cars so they are all diesel engines. Now eagerly awaiting my new one: a petrol hybrid. Focus 1.0 EcoBoost Hybrid 125pk Titanium Wagon 5d in Fantastic Red.
