...and it's 'kin great! Picked it up on Saturday and have driven around 350 miles in it already. Spent almost 9 hours on Sunday cleaing it from top to bottom, looks so nice when it's clean
I've enjoyed the power too. 2.5 V6 certainly puts out a bit of grunt. I haven't been driving it around like an arse, but ocassionally I've tickled the loud peddle and listened to that wonderful V6.
I was warned about the oil levels, so I have checked them twice since Saturday and everything seems fine, still nicely poised between the max and min mark. I've also been putting shell optimax in it for the first few tanks, wondered if anyone here has any comments on the optimax compared to normal 95 ron.
Also noticed that by driving the car sensibly and smoothly I'm returning about 28 - 30 MPG. That's a mixture of motorway and town driving, but is actually pretty good. My old 1.6 fiesta SI was only getting around 35 MPG, so I was a little surprised by this, anyone here get average MPG figures.
Comments from neighbours and friends have all been positive, people remarking on the interior (esp. the sterring wheel-wooden type) and also the rear door handles.
Can't wait to take it for a blast this weekend. Just gotta love that V6..... wink
