Amazing blend of performance and affordability. Surprisingly quick as well!
What colour/options you getting?

Both 1.9 MJet and 1.4 TJet Sportings are very good fun cars at a great price, and WILL seem awesome stepping up from a lesser model.

Congratulations on a good choice and enjoy!

Well the Ford equivelent is the fiesta Zetec S and thats more expensive to buy, its slower, more to insure and has less standard equipment. It goes round corners better though

Re: Its a long waiting game!

Unfortunately my dealer has now told me that my t-jet wont be here until mid april so as you can understand i am a little cheesed off, ordered on the 2nd february and shes still being built aparently after the dealer told me she was at status twenty and then to do some research to find that its still in production.

Re: Its a long waiting game!

When my Honda breaks down I'll either be looking for a GP Tjet and Bravo Tjet.

You might be lucky enough to get the New Tjet engine with more power if they are delaying it!
