*YOU WILL PAY LESS IF YOU READ*

I originally spotted: hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…369 a few weeks ago but after test driving the 125PS version
and the ST, felt I wanted something in the middle and I asked for a quote on this. This is the first one they gave me without any haggling. This model has 17s as standard and is a bit quicker and stiffer than the Zetec S 125.

Here's a good review with some good photos: drivingspirit.com/for…ns/

If you're willing to negotiate, you'll get it even cheaper or some extra options free. I actually got one for a couple of quid more with 3 added options.
I'm pretty sure you could get this for about the £4K mark for 2 years if you ask for a better price and drop the miles to 8K.

Car is most certainly going to depreciate much more than this over 2 years. I'd say probably below £10K.

This car is not on the website, so you need to select any other fiesta and request a price for this.

Let me know how you get on!

Which options did you get?

Before anyone says anything... This car is obviously a little in your face and not to everyone's tastes, but its a very good driver and is great value for money. Insurance for myself was £285, more than £130 less than an ST and from what I've read people are getting over 45MPG.

I doubt anyone else will get the same deal I got as it was the last in stock, but I got Privacy Glass, spare wheel and Sat Nav for a few quid more than this. To be honest, I think people could get more or less the same (minus the sat nav).
The main thing is to not accept the initial price. Get 2 or 3 quotes and play them off each other. I've saved myself about £300.

When will you take delivery?

I have the red version sitting on my drive which I leased for my mrs. It cost me a little over £3600.

Surprisingly good little car I must say.

I could have it as soon as next month, but due to me working away just now, I'm asking to have it delivered in Mid December. If you need to have one built, I think the wait time is Jan. That was the reason I got the extras. All I wanted was Privacy glass, but they offered me this one, so seemed a good idea!

Yeah, the deals are great. What sort of miles/options is yours? It's a very good compromise between fun and frugal.

New Car Discount were selling them at £13,300 so if you think it's worth £10k in two years then you'd be better off buying one.

As for the 45mpg, it's difficult to be impressed when Ford are claiming 63mpg, I know the majority of manufacturers exaggerate the economy by manipulating the tests, but that's a huge difference. Although still not as bad as the figures Fiat dreamed up with the Twinair.

That's really good too. To be honest, it'll be worth a good bit less than 10. The normal ZS is worth 10K a year old. So if you call it 9k? Then you take into account you dont need to faff around with the selling and getting finance (unless you have £13300 spare) its still a pretty decent deal to get a decent car that you can drive for 2 years.

It's a decent enough car, it's just a shame the better lease deals of late are based on two years rather than three. It makes it more difficult to do a fair comparison against buying the car outright as I would think more people would keep the car until it's three years old than two due to the depreciation curve, warranty length and incoming MOT.

With lease deals on the ST previously being around £500 more than this, I personally would want to see sub £4k total price for the lower model.

Not a bad looking car

Yaah, Like Mada06 said, you can get it for less than this depending on miles etc. I was actually very close to getting an ST, but I'd almost certainly die and/or lose my licence. Amazing machine. Plus, it'll be a good bit more to run.

Ford are not claiming the car will do 63mpg on the road, they are claiming 63mpg on the official test, which you can use to compare the car with other cars achievements on the official test. Given the variation in driving styles and driving conditions it would be silly to expect manufacturers to give a figure that will represent everybody because it's guaranteed to be wrong. Nothing wrong with any claimed figures, because in all cars I've driven I've been able to get better mileage than manufacturer claimed in the ideal conditions.

The published combined figures used to be a lot closer to reality before stop-start manipulation on the test cycle recently really pushed the test figures way up though. Ive always managed to get around quoted combined figures around the doors in the summer prior to my current MK7 Golf GTD and surpass them by a margin on a long motorway journey. Now getting within 10% of them on even a long journey is just a pipe-dream. That's why people feel they are being lied to. It does get us cheaper tax discs though.

I tend to agree. More or less every car you look at now has inflated MPG figures. Even the onboard computers lie! My old Mini Cooper D claimed to be sitting in the high 50s to 60 without much effort and when I did the sums, its more like high 40s to 50.
