I have only seen 3 M-Sports in in Johannesburg so far, 2 Estoril and one White. *grin* Atleast they are not as widespread as the Sport, which will be awesome when I get mine.

I have seen quite a few around, mostly VOs, only a couple of EBs...doesn't seem like many people are going for EB, guess that will make you unique to some extent.

If you don't stay in the Joburg north region or the West Rand then you will most def be unique.

@ Latito, I'm around Randburg. Guess I'll be seeing more soon. lol

I really liked the White M-Sport the sales guy in one of the dealerships I went to was driving, it looks awesome especially with Red Seats. I can imagine Valencia Orange would look fantastic and stand-out with M-Sport, but the first time Is saw an Estoril parked at work; I knew I would never be able to buy the f20 in any other colour.

@ vladberca, I went for the 118. That's the one I test drove, loved the engine! It was quite a jump in terms of driving pleasure from my Ford Fiesta. lol

@ Patrick, Thanks mAN

@ Nilo, yeah... I went for the Hex too. lol

@ iBeech, HK was a deal breaker for me... I couldn't imagine getting a car without decent sound, I just hope that HK is as good as I hope and think it is.

I really wanted to go for the Xenons, but had to curb my enthusiasm a bit. lol

Hope I won't regret it though.

Let me put it this way, there are alot of people out there with mixed feelings regarding the car's looks...especially the headlights!
The EB looks great, you will get alot of compliments on the car...with a guaranteed "But the headlights...blah blah blah"...
However, with Xenon, you will get no "but" in all the compliments. The halogens are pretty much the negative of the car!

*sigh* they make that much difference, huh?

Will have a chat with the sales guy and see if can add them.

I totally agree with others here, xenon makes the headlights look less bulky, besides you will see like a cat in the dark
I'm sure you can still change your order.

Got the Xenons added to my Order. Not the whole Driving Lights Package though... Felt, I didn't need it.

Just wanted the Xenons for the look of the car. Daytime Running Lights are look awesome with this, and having better vision at night will certainly not hurt either.
