Buy a 3 door manual LX Fiesta, if you don't want to pay $2k for air then don't option it. Sorry to be blunt!!! It's a brand new car with a long waiting list in many dealerships, especially the Zetecs.
I'd recommend a manual LX with air for about $19,200 drive-away roughly, plus rims and a kit. You could score a set of decent 16's for probably a grand or so change-over with tyres and then get the bodykit painted and installed all for around the $21-22k mark ready to go inc. on roads. Or you could wait and be unhappy
$22k drive away for a little Fiesta with big rims and a kit, that handles like you wouldn't believe and goes like the wind for a small car (and will even keep a 2.0 Zetec Focus honest even given it's 22kw less!!!). I say go the Fiesta LX, manual, 3 door, factory bodykit and some aftermarket alloys. If you're in Sydney I can do it for you no worries. Just give me a holler...
