Which specification Ford Fiesta EcoBoost should I go for?

I test drove a Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost 100 yesterday and I have fallen in love with it. What is the best spec level to buy that will hold a good value in years to come? I drove a Zetec but was wondering if Titanium will hold its value better. I am also unsure whether to go for the 100 or 125. I am also concerned that the Titanium has automatic wipers, lights etc, which I am worried could lead to expensive repairs, and there seem to be many more things to go wrong. Am I unduly concerned?

I would go for the 125 because it offers a really excellent drive, and Zetec rather than Titanium spec. A 125 Zetec will cost about the same as a 1.0 Titanium. Test and video here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/ford/ford-fiesta-2.../. There are big discounts on these via www.drivethedeal.com
