      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    I was wondering about the keyless start/keyfree system: it seemed to be subject to some similar confusion in the specs/options as the number of speakers. I was wondering if full keyless might have been added in by mistake before all the options were properly nailed down. Will find out what mine has on Saturday...
  2. Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    That's weird, when I looked at the price list a few weeks back it definitely had 7 speakers for the st line x. Perhaps there is a lucky window...?
  3. Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    Centre speaker wasn't on the spec for st line x when I ordered, but it got added at some point
  4. Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    Best guess is the roof / spare wheel issue is down to a weight / specification technicality. I have heard that wheel well is still present and empty with the panoramic roof, so I have taken a punt and ordered the roof with the intention of adding my own spare wheel. Will find out the result in 10 days...
  5. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    I did this - got no reply.
  6. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Best part of 7 months wait for me, causing considerable inconvenience and expenditure. Can't complain about the dealer, disgusted with Ford's handling of the issue. I spent a great deal of time writing and trying to escalate complaints to Ford, to receive no response other than "sorry that you're not happy, speak to your dealer." No explanation, barely an acknowledgement or apology for the issue, let alone any form of compensation.
  7. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Brochure now shows 7 speakers in the X, but I'm sure it didn't when I ordered, so it feels like a bonus to me. It makes me wonder how much of the infrastructure is in place for the b&o play option - specifically is there useable wiring in place in the boot for a sub ....? Anyway, looks like mine should finally be ready for collection 17 March, hope it's worth the wait.
  8. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    I feel sure when I ordered about 6 months ago the st line x had 6 speakers same as st line...?
  9. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Interesting that st line x gets extra centre speaker even without bo play - this is different to the original spec
  10. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Congrats! Photos and opinions if possible please. What was your order date?
  11. Does anybody know which (if any?) external body accredits the Ford quality management system with regards to car sales in the UK?
  12. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Very close to my spec - would very much appreciate pics/opinions if possible when you get it.
  13. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    If you don't mind me asking, who/how did you contact to get that response from Ford? My situation is similar yet I've had no joy through the dealer or Ford Customer Relationship Centre....
  14. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    I've still not got a confirmed build date. 7 months (at best) to deliver a Fiesta is not acceptable. This is causing me considerable inconvenience and extra cost. I've tried to escalate a complaint with Ford several times, but they just don't want to know or enter into any discussion - they just tell me to liaise with my dealer over the delivery schedule. I find this to be extremely poor customer service. You would think they could offer some form of small financial compensation or goodwill gesture - especially given that the delay has been acknowledged to have been caused by a failure in their supply chain (and by implication, their quality management systems).
  15. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Yep, looks like April for me too (if everything goes as planned.....) Really disappointed with this ridiculous situation - at least 7 months to deliver a Ford Fiesta. Even more annoyingly, I'm using the scrappage scheme, so I am now obliged to fork out on servicing, tyres and a battery to keep my 200,000 mile Fiesta going through the winter (and pray that it doesn't break down in an expensive way in the meantime).
