The nastiest thing?

Nasty, badass mofo that breaks other people's necks gawping at it, the jealousy that's incurred by others that drive inferior, more expensive, less powerful cars, that can be very vitriolic.

It's the best 35k I've ever spent on a car

Right, here goes:
1 - stupid unusable cup holders
2 - stupid handbrake location and the fact that it doesn't inspire confidence to hold the car
3 - aweful hard plastic along top of doors, offensive to rest your arm on!
4 - crap headlights
5 - can't angle passenger mirror in enough also can't angle rear-view mirror low enough to see fully
6 - crazy high idle when cold....not good for those still in bed

Touch "Town", it turns into "Postcode".

What he said as well as I forgot it may be on town to start with lol. Basically any touch screen button that has a little lit up dash underneath, means that there are multiple options if you press it i.e. Town/postcode on the satnav or the radio options within entertainment

Ford should maybe have the new cars default to wet mode in temps under 3c to help safeguard those who are not familiar with RWD.

hate that the petrol cap that never locks
hate rubbish Shaker stereo
hate poor throttle response
hate that we cant have a spare wheel
hate the factory panel alignment
hate that the parking sensors get to a constant tone about a yard from an object, making them next to useless
Really hate cleaning the bloody wheels.

sounds like a lot of hate, but i really love the car, its just that it could easily be so much better if Ford cared

Also another thing that bugs me and it's soooo stupid is the rev needle covers the headlight symbol. There is so much space to put it somewhere else but they put it where it can be blocked.
Yes that annoyed me too, sorry to the person who I blinded with my full beams because of this

I have just read this thread and whilst I can agree with most of the details that people have posted, I have never thought that they really annoy me.

Love the car and still have a massive grim when driving, looking forward to spending 5 odd hours giving it a good clean tomorrow.

Love it big time.

Doesn't bother me, but it would be nice if the front & rear bumpers, the side skirts and rear seats all were aligned properly. But I get the fact that the car is a mass produced Yank motor and not some soul-less German panzerwagen, and thus embrace the vague skonkyness.

The stock exhaust note comes in for some displeasure, but for me it's just about perfect. A nice rumble at start-up and low speeds, but then lessens as the speed increases. I've had cars with after market exhausts which woke people up/shook windows out of frames/set off car alarms, and can't be arsed with that palava these days.
