    Don't think you'd have to pay that much back. If you're due to change in July it shouldn't be as bad as 80%.

    When you ring Monaghan enquire how much you'd be liable for.

    I did ring them only 2 weeks ago.. I asked if i were to change even a couple of weeks before the due date and was told 80%.. Standard penalty I think.

    June it is then..............

    Rang the guy who I bought the Fiesta from, and he told me that the date I bought the car from him was 21st June 2008. So I don't have too long to wait until I can change!! Woohoo

    I drove a Golf GTI with DSG and it was head and shoulders above the manual. Best autobox I've driven

    Car has been registered and checked over!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm picking my baby up tomorrow!! Can't wait to get my grubby little hands on it!

    From following the original thread, I remember you buying this car, (the date you picked it up is on the thread on this post), hard to believe nearly 2 years has gone by so quickly!

    Best of luck with your newer car!

    I know!!! TBH, while the Fiesta was a grand car to drive, the cabin space was/is a little bit pokey..... I have the thing scratched to bits from the wheelchair. Have been told by a mate who is also a wheelchair user, and has a Golf, that there is loads of space in them.

    I sat in one myself a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't believe the amount of space.

    The Fiesta is a supermini while the Golf is a compact hatchback from the next class up, it was always going to be roomier than the Fiesta.

    Will the 1.2l be slower?

    I would say not.

    Have you looked at the Mitsubishi Lancer, it comes in automatic has a 1.5 petrol engine, the boot is huge and has a bluetooth kit as standard, very handy for the phone as you can make and take calls while in the car.

    If you are interested let me know and I can give you some figures as I bought one just recently!

    Feshty 1.25 Zetec Manual
    Performance: maximum speed (mph): 104, maximum speed (km/h): 168 and acceleration 0-62 mph (secs): 13.3
    Power: 60 kW , 82 HP EEC @ 5,800 rpm; , 114 Nm @ 4,200 rpm

    Golf 1.2 Tsi Manual
    Performance: maximum speed (mph): 118, maximum speed (km/h): 190 and acceleration 0-62 mph (secs): 10.5
    Power: 77 kW , 105 HP EEC @ 5,000 rpm; , 175 Nm @ 1,550 rpm


    It will feel like an F1 car compared to Feshty :D

    I know I baesd both on manual but the difference should be similar in Auto

    Sorry I should have said it is a 5 door but I was thinking as it is a saloon and has a longer body so the doors are longer/wider it might be worth a look.

    They also have: Mitsubishi Colt MY09 3 doors 1.3L AUTO Invite 95hp Petrol Automatic - I haven't tried this car just saw it as an option when I was shopping around, I opted for the Lancer.

    Anyone??


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,822 ✭✭✭✭EPM


    Order it now...then ask for delivery around then and problem solved.

    AFAIK it can take up to 3 months for a factory order
