I don't currently own a fiesta si but drive a fiat cinquecento sporting.

I first came here just to get information about fiestas as somebody I know owns one and I wanted to impress them.

As it is while on here I have grown to love them so would actually like to own one.

I live and work in southport so any advice on finding a good one not to far away would be great.

Hi Pete, welcome to fsi.

Good ones can be hard to come by, quite a lot of them are rusty in all honesty. How much would you be looking to spend to get a good one? Or are you just wanting one to plod around in kinda thing?

They are good little cars, 1.6 ones are quite pokey, and can easily be upgrated to a 2.0 engine if you want an extra bit of power :)

Welcome, watch out for our resident gay Ben.

As mentioned good fiestas are harder to come by these days but it is possible.

Thanks for the welcome guys.

Yes the fiat is yellow, aren't they all? It's got a superman logo on the bonnet.

So where should I start my search, anything good on ebay?
