Welcome Sonia! Have seen quite a few women driving the Fiestas around - at least you have taste and aren't in a Jazz!

I'm surprised to see ladies driving Manual more and more often. 100% of the women at work drive manuals. At least they've learnt the stick ;)

Welcome to the forums

What do you mean? My Fiesta loved that piece of road! Some great corners down south. Macquarie Pass and the other road that runs up to Robertson are great fun!

Welcome to the forum!

So is it an LX or Zetec? And what accessories would it have?

Welcome to the forum!

So is it an LX or Zetec? And what accessories would it have?
Thanks all for the welcome.

Its an LX. Complete with scuff plates, weathershields, carpet mats, hatch net and the protective mat that you could get.

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.

Cool! Fiesta's got one hell of a chassis. VERY nice car to drive.

Gday all

My name's Craig, I live in Bundy, and I'm 28. I've been lurking about on this particular forum for a little while, hehe :

Thought I had better introduce myself. You see, as of yesterday, I'm the owner of an '06 Tonic Zetec It's my first new car, and tbh, it was a real head-scratcher. I was tossing up on lots of 2nd hand stuff, from Skylines to 318is, Rexys to XR6ts.

I love driving, but I'm not super keen on the huge costs (and in most cases, image problems) associated with 'enthusiast' vehicles.

Anyhow, I was pretty sold on it before I got to the dealership for the test-drive yesterday. But man, what a nice car to drive :king:

I'll keep it stock for a bit, I think - at least until a few others show up on the road here. We'll see tho... hehe

Oh... and to the gamers/sim-racers out there, check out the sig.
