Can't add more than what has been suggested above.

Just to add balance...

My Saxo started first time every time, my fiesta on the other hand not so lucky.

I own a saxo. :hmm:

does the picture of the key on the dash go off or flash when trying to start it?

I really am considering getting rid of mine already. I get so much shit for driving it. From family, friends, the internet and work colleagues. The car has such a bad image. :doh: Shame 'cause the vts is fun and goes really well.

Got to say I didn't get too much abuse when I got mine, and I took the doubters out for a spin and they shut up.
