ScareyBear,

Just low-key stuff, I would say... to start with anyhow. Some nice 17 inch rims, get it lowered a bit, just the usual cosmetic stuff. I'll be looking for a few more kWs eventually, too, I spose.

But I'm in no rush really

Welcome Craig, your new Zetec I could imagine would indeed have to be a bit of a rarity in Bundaberg........I haven't even even seen another WQ Zetec on the roads here in Brisbane yet and iv'e had mine for nearly 2 months and drive into the City every day, to me that's half the appeal of the car, I like to have something a little different, something that makes people take that second glance at it etc, good luck with it, hope you enjoy it.

His name is 'Si' (pronounced sigh).

hehe, as for the rarity, I've been keeping an eye out, a couple of LXes is all I've seen. Let's just keep this car our little secret huh?

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

My fiesta handles Ousley really well and loves Macquarie Pass - it gets a bit fed up with slow drives though as it corners really well. I actually didn't realise how well it handled until I drove a work vehicle home yesterday - its a new model ford focus (automatic) and the fiesta kills it on Ousley. I'd love to take a manual focus for a run - it may be a different story.

Hmm...... I'll take you for a run up the pass if you're keen

Welcome!

Seems McDonalds Managers get paid well :

Anyway, welcome Trent!

Anything done to it apart from the sound system?

Haha welcome.

We should get along just fine : Haha That car, is actually mine :eclipsee_

So why didn't you check out a RSC 172? Surely it would have been only a few grand more... most are in the $17-21k bracket!

But yes, welcome. Trust me - you will enjoy the Fiesta! I sure did. Ask Mitch_LX, I had a massive smile on my face when I drove his LX 3 months ago!

Probably best you didn't anyway. Had you driven it, you would have been even more in love :sm_drool:

But yes, the Fiesta is a heap of fun. You will enjoy the beast. It was a great transition from the Fiesta Zetec into the 182 Cup... Same size, weight, driving dynamics (well, fun to drive and rev)... just the 182 Cup does everything a little better, and quicker :

Oh, so another sleepless night tonight then? :

:eclipsee_

Hmm pick up of fiesta delayed until my cheque has 'cleared'. Apparently it takes 10 days for a personal cheque to clear...says dealer. Bank says it takes 3days so who would u trust?
1st time dealing with a DEALER and im definatley not looking forward to dealing with them in the future.
