that citroen gives me the horn...i await to see what fords are doing...the only one thats ivoked such a reaction from me is the S2000 rally car in tarmac trim. and the new focus RS...fords new small cars..the KA and fiesta noteably are uglier than a battered moose at a minger convention. the KA is the same underneath as fiat 500 and thats a looker ;) and im pretty sure i read online one tuning company had got a reliable 200 brake out of the arbarth engine

Fords have got some catching up to do imo.

the saxo in second pulls strong in second, i can push my si in second but at 5500rpm it sort of just screams with no more pull where the vts shoots up the revs alot quicker.

Where do the ST's peak on power? anybody got a RR print? By all means it should pull right to the top but where is it best to change?

You have wondered in to the "Other Makes & Marques" section.

In all seriousness, on the hatchback front ford have been behind for a long time.

I would love for ford to give me a reason to buy another fiesta I really would.

affraid i agree

ford does not seem to want to go forward they just think what parts have they got left from other cars and what can they build out off them :thumbsup:

If the new fiesta ST gets the 180-190bhp 1.6 engine as planned, then fook me Ford will be owning in the supermini/hatchback criteria again on everything but looks and style (and that's my personal pref!)

Weight - tick
Grip - tick
Handling -tick
Power -tick

Until then, Fords are back of the que. Still, I don't know what the french, german and japs are up to of late.. :? :?
