Occupation: Pathology Courier
Car: 2006 Fiesta LX Auto
Best thing about it: small, reasonably nippy with a few revs onboard, nice design inside & out.
History: owned a mildly modded 1991 Subaru Legacy RS for 11years (still miss it 6yrs on...), bought a 2004 Outback H6 (great car but the missus didn't like it) sold that & drove around in her 1994 Celica for a couple of years before buying a 2013 Audi A1. The Audi is such a nice car and goes really well for a tiddler, but after 2.5 years and 2 s-tronic clutch-pack replacements (under warranty) it was time to move on. Decided to buy the Fiesta as it's almost lineball in size with the A1 but bigger inside. For sure it's not as flash or as quick but it's cheap and cheerful. And we paid cash so no more car repayments. The Fiesta has 152K on it with a full service history, it's been garaged all it's life and is in really good nick. I want to keep it that way, I want to keep it regularly serviced and make small improvements here and there (I'm a born tinkerer) to keep it interesting.

Purchased 2008 Fiesta WQ for youngest to learn to drive.
Trying to fix up boot lid actuator and rear window heater not working.
Love these cars :-)

Sadly, last one was a write-off after being rear-ended waiting at traffic lights :-(

Hi Guys, I am after some info RE front seats for a wp-wq Fiesta.
Surprise surprise, the tilt levers are stuffed, so I am in need of new seats. Can anybody on this forum tell me what other alternatives I have, other than original wp-wq front seats? surely other seats would fit this model car?
Cheers for the help in advance.

Marty

Welcome to AFF Julie.

Check out the Fiesta forum, you could try the 'search forum' for limp mode or ask the question in there.

Greetings all. I've recently purchased a 2006 fiesta for a family run yearly Sbox derby.

Any help you guys could give me to win the competition would be appreciated.

Only restriction is that i'm on a very tight budget because of the rules of the competition.

Mods include:
Bull bar under the front bumper
Leaf blower attached to the air box (makes noise that's about it)
Realistic ken block paint scheme...
custom snow/mud chains.
more to follow.
