      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums.

  1. Howdy all! I've decided to go travelling around Asia for a little while, so I'm planning on selling my Fiesta Zetec-S. However, I still have £5k finanace outstanding on it. I had the idea of paying the £5k to 'own' the Fiesta (but Ford Credit mention GMFV... what's this when it's at home?) and then selling it privately, then buy a cheaper car (a KA, maybe). Is it as simple as this?
  2. Well, went to the dealer... and it doesn't seem worth it too be honest so I'm going to fund my trip another way. I guess I would have missed my Snowflake. Amie, you sum up what everybody else thinks... which is a shame for the KA, because with a little more 'ooph' (IE, maybe a 1.4) would have made it much more desirable as a little car!
  3. I thought of part-exchage, but it seems I'd only get £8k for it. Selling it privately I'd get arond £10-£12k. I'm going to go visit my dealer and ask anyway. You've all been very helpful, so thanks! B)
  4. Hi Dave... that makes much more sense! Thank you! I'll phone up Ford Credit to see how much I'll have to pay. Then I'll probably sell it privately. I'm planning to go around Japan and China mostly, will see where the wind, or plane takes me. :P You've got a KA I see, are they any good? I just want a little run-around car now, although the SportKA looks quite nice!
  5. Yes... I paid so much in cash and included my old car as part-deposit and the agreement was (or so I thought) that I had £5000 left to pay by the end of 2011 (this is what my finance papers say). But, this GMFV got me a little worried. Maybe it wasn't explained to me correctly at the point of sale.
  6. Fiesta Titanium Biult From 21St June

    Meh, prefer the current one too be honest!
  7. Happy Birthday Dangull!!!!

    Very happy birthday, Sir!

  9. Some More Pics Of My Frozen White Mk7

    Oh corrr.... that mk.7 is lush. LUSH!
  10. Fiesta Mk8 Spare Wheel

    I think it's a mark 6. :P
  11. Fiesta Woes

    I'm finding the Fiesta quite nippy still, but agree that the build quality isn't great. Infact, the mark 6.5 seems more 'put together'.
  12. Production Date Pushed Back

    Yes. I got mine from Allen Ford Hopping Hill (do you know anybody there?) and I got a first class service. Car arrived early and the salesman and the manager were really friendly!
  13. Next Forum Meet - 3/5/2010

    I've been invited up by the in-laws for bank holiday so afraid I won't be there. Have fun all! B)
  14. Just Thought I Would Say Hello

    So, there are at least three white ZS's in Northampton now. :P
  15. Just Thought I Would Say Hello

    The Allen Ford in Hopping Hill has sold a few I believe, but they don't seem to be too popular compared with black ZS's.
  16. Just Thought I Would Say Hello

    Funny enough somebody else at work has exactly the same car, so there are at least 2 of us. :P Give us a flash and a wave if you see us about! Where abouts you from? Will be waving at all the green mark 6.5's now! :P
  17. Just Thought I Would Say Hello

    Sunny Northampton. ;)
  18. New Car On Its Way! :-)

    You deserve a nice car after what you've been through! Glad to see you've got another Fiesta as well. B)
  19. Clean Clean Clean

    Loving the angles of them photos, it really makes the mark.7 look great!
  20. Just Thought I Would Say Hello

    Hello local lad! :P Your car sounds wonderful!
  21. Ford Using Sellotape To Build My Mk7?

    You're on a similar deal to me then; are you going to change your car? I'm in two minds about if it's worth buying the car and then selling it rather than exchanging it.
  22. Just Had My First Ever Accident!

    I've never had any accidents yet after nearly 4 years driving *touch wood that continues!* but yesterday driving in the MEN car park in Manchester (if you've been there then you'll know how narrow the ramps are) I slightly scratched the front left alloy on some concrete. Was so annoyed but luckily it's barely noticeable. Looking at the scraps on the wall it seems like many many cars have done the same.
  23. What Colour St?

    The ST's look great in all colours... but the black look AMAZING.
  24. Ford Using Sellotape To Build My Mk7?

    I agree with some of the above posts about the mark.7's build quality... sometimes I also think that it isn't as well built as the previous model; and also in agreement that I'm glad that the end of next year I can exchange the car for probably something else.
  25. Jealous.

    My best mate has sent a text; he had a client today who is the Global Head of Design for Ford! Apparently he turned up in a very nice looking Focus ST and mentioned about the facelift that has already been designed and signed off. :o Would just love to shake his hand and talk Ford all day. :P
