Good to know about the timing belt, although I've got plenty of time to worry about mine yet (35k).  Ever since I got my 1.5 I keep occasionally thinking about a 2.0L but then I have to remind myself of the £0 tax and decent mpg.

How many miles has your car covered?
1.5 TDCi have issues with timing belts failing prematurely/excessive wear so if it’s near 75-80k miles I would get it done. Ford are now also mandating replacing the high pressure fuel pump sprocket as part of the job.

73k on it now, was going to wait another 10k-ish which is still well inside the 'official' interval. We can call it a risk, you never know I might get hit by a bus tomorrow

85k ish will be fine, but wouldn’t leave it much longer. I’ve had a fair few lately with broken/stripped timing belts.

Thanks for the tip this is my first Ford since I owned a MK1 Mondeo in the 90s, also in white, and 28yrs older than this one I've just picked up
