    The FR TDi Ibiza can do 0-60 in 8.3 seconds as standard, so doubt the petrol takes .1 seconds longer! Like Seat say!

    Question is, does the fiesta look anything remotely like a viper?

    Answer is, no.

    8.3? Not being funny mate but i doubt it. Have you ever tried timing it? I have using various (crude to be fair) methods and they all seem to come out at about 9.0 secs at best and my TDI sport is very well run in. Who cares about 0-60 anyway, we all know that its irrelevant really (and also poor on TDI's). How about how the car handles, rides, reliability, dealer service etc. I'm sure the Fezzer beats the Ibiza on quite a few other points other than to 60, as much as it pains me to say it.

    Agreed about the Viper comment though. Although they are Shelby stripes NOT Viper stripes ;) :rolleyes: ;)

    The best I timed as standard was 8.8 seconds which I was really impressed with at the time. Most of these TDi FRs are running at more like 150 bhp than 130 - mine was at 146 at the wheels. I suggest that 8.3 is feasible but unlikely.

    Wasnt being funny about the stripes matey, just seem like the glory is being taken away from the Cobra by the crappy Dodge Viper :rolleyes:

    Agreed, the Ibiza handles OK but from what i've read the Fiesta handles better and i imagine it will be built better too.

    All i was meaning is that people see the 0-60 time as faster and automatically assume it must be a better car :rolleyes: Also that they will quite happily listen to what the mags say form the 0-60 times but when they the mag says the Fiesta is better they don't want to know. Selective hearing so-to-speak. Not diggin at anyone here just trying to put things into perspective and point out theres more to life than a 0-60 time

    30-50 and 30 -70 is where it counts :hide:

    autocar tested a tdi sport at 8.4 secs a couple of years ago so it's not as unlikely as it sounds. rest assured my tdi sport is quicker than 9 secs :D
    Agree with ali on this as well 0 - 60 isn't the be all and end all, 30 - 70 is more important in my eyes.

    I'm swaying towards the Ibiza at the minute, out of interest roughly what kind of 0-60 times with you get out of a revoed 130 BHP Ibiza? And how would it affect the top speed?

    HI ALL.
    As some of you might know i have had bezza revo, cupra r revo,
    loads of tt's 225 with revo & an A4 DTM revo etc etc ,
    My wife has an st 150 and its a great car which sounds great when you ring its neck, also you can easy get 190/215 bhp for less than £1k also cosworth do an up grade to around 190/200 bhp for aronud £700.
    I loved all the seats i owned but only the cupra r with revo would give a grin as big as the little st150 could give you !!
    Its a totally differant drive to the bezza the bezza would be better on motorway and long distance but for b road bashing i would have the st any day.
    cheers all catch you later:bleh:

    See this thread mate Fine car the fiesta tdci only 90 bhp but it handles like a go kart, oh and when it is run in ( it is detuned from 110 bhp to 90 bhp) anyhow, it will chip to 140 bhp+ :D the wife cannot wait:rolleyes:

    PICS here of Zetec s tdci http://www.seatcupra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=88664
