Fast becoming a classic. Not many standard and in good condition left. You will stand out in the traffic. Quite fast off the lights but could do with more bhp. Cornering is faultless. Quite good on petrol. The interior is very comfortable and driving position just right. Rising in value really great car to drive. (read more)

I used to own an F Reg Ford Fiesta XR2 MkII in black that my friend and I turboed. It was standard looking apart from RS Turbo whels and the b great exhaust coming out of the back. We put an Escort RS turbo engine in it and I then got the engine tuned to 187 BHP by power engineering. This car was the ultimate pocket rocket and it left many a cosworth owner at the lights with their jaws on the floor.
The Mark II is by far (in my opinion) the best looking of all the Fiestas and considering... (read more)

I have owned one for 8 yrs and it has only broken down once with a broken feul pump. I run it with spending as little as possible and its done well over 100,000 miles. Its got just under a 100 horses under the bonnet and with its light weight its just spot on for hill climbing. If you get one keep hold of it,the xr2 is a future classic. (read more)
