Okay, so after I got rid of the Corsa, was looking at a 5 door diesel car that was comfortable to drive and had a fair bit of grunt..

After looking at various different cars, makes and models, I eventually came across a silver Zetec TDCi Fiesta, as my brother has the Zetec S ECOBoost and a couple of my mates having the ST-2's and ST-3's, I decided to go with it... and I must admit I have fallen in love with it! It is completely standard for now, as just picked it up this morning, and haven't had a chance to take any pictures! Driven a 100 miles today as it is!

Yeah, engines are nearly bulletproof! Haha! Has done 71 thousand miles, but that's nothing really! Really pleased with it! Got a couple light upgrades coming, footwell lights and number plate and side lights

Right! So far I have bought a set of new wiper blades for the front as they where knackered and streaking on the windscreen, so they where replaced :)

Have ordered some CANBUS LED sidelights and red LED 501's for the footwell lights! Looking for some more ideas! No wanting to go too mental at the moment, more subtle stuff, like gel overlays and possibly some HID's etc

Haven't had a chance to give it the once over at work yet. Hoping to get it on the 4 poster and have a good look round it! Make sure everything is tip-top ;) for only a 68bhp model, the torque is ridiculous, it certainly shifts! Seems quicker than the Corsa!

Because to be honest... The Corsa was bloody horrible! I think the Fiesta's are better build quality, and the gearbox is so much smoother! Looks isn't everything... However, 5 door models can be made to look quite smart :)

I learned to drive in a Fiesta Diesel and it was very nice however I like the corsa's just as much. 5 doors are poop all of the time :(

Hmm, I learnt to drive in a Corsa diesel, hadn't the poxy thing! Gearbox was bloody terrible and vowed I'd never get a diesel Corsa! Haha! Then my brother got the Zetec S ECOboost, and that looks absolutely stunning!! It was 3 doors though, and for a change wanted the practicality of having 5 doors (as all my previous cars bar my Land Rover where all 3 doors!) so wanted a bit of a change, but wanted to keep the small car theme, so decided on the Fiesta ;) I don't think the 5 door Fiesta looks that bad to be honest

No cars look bad as 5 doors, although there's always the look that your grandma could drive the same car! :lol1:

Keep the interior bulb white so you can see. The dash is red and white. Get 5630 smd LEDs. They are brighter than 5050
