Nice!
Unfortunately I dont have as much money as that to spend. I was hoping to get a 09 plate for about 9grand, dont know if im being too optimistic?
So with the 'facelift' fiesta whats changing? I'm hoping not too much haha.
Motocrossmad
Very little mate this year, The big change will b next year for the new st coming out. Was going to wait for 1 but just couldnt resist this car, patience is not my strong point lol. yeh will get an 09 for 9k, just look about for your perfect car, dont rush in like i did. When you thinking of getting one?

I'd have thought they'd have left it the same till the ST came out, but ah well. Eh it depends, hopefully by the end of August.. i'm working full-time atm to save up the money.. it depends what I get for my own car really. Im impatient too and I think having to save up has been good, made me sure I want it haha. :]
Motocrossmad
what you working as mate? yeh defo saving up makes you appreciate things more. i worked my ass off to afford this car and will love every second of it, first new car for me :D
Jack7
Working in Sainsburys atm, doing full-time whilst I can since im back at uni in september which will mean back to like 16 hours a week haha.
Ah it is? Nice! Well mine wont be brand new but it'll be the closest ive had to brand new :)
Motocrossmad
Well hope your shifts go well and can get the car earlier than expected. Going to keep it standard for just now? or have plans for it?
Jack7
yeah I hope so too! Really wish I could afford it right now but another month or 2 and that'll be me! Eh not atm, though i might do once i have the car haha :] wbu?
Motocrossmad
was hoping to do alot before ford fair but as i get it the day i have to travel down im gonna be stuck.
List so far is:
17" Team Dynamic imola wheels in black
Mountune 140 kit (when im in falklands in december)
AP Coilover kit
Carbon Fibre Vynil on most of interior plastics
Front Splitter
HID conversion
Colour coded washer jets and aerial
Rally mudflaps
If funds permit then rear disk conversion.

Saying this i wont be about alot so have time to save up for parts. away for 2 months in december to falklands then march to kenya for 2 months. so cant spend any cash. hopefully leave car off the road over whole of winter months aswell.

The modifying bug is dengerous, ive spent well over £4000 on my bike on parts lol, hate thinking about it

God youve got a lot of things planned for it then haha!
How much is that all gonna set ye back? :/
My mates in the navy and shes the same, away for months at a time so she hasnt bothered buying a car, i wouldnt be able to go without a car haha.
Motocrossmad
for it all probably about 3000, wont be doing it all at once so will spread the costs out. plus with not using the vehicle for nearly 5 months will save me on fuel costs. get a wee bonus for falklands aswell.
Yeh it sucks not driving for a long time but you'r kept pretty busy, no time to really miss the car. Have military vehicles on operations to use aswell.
I dont really go out at weekends drinking or anything so the car/bikes are my priorities.
Your always best to mod in small chunks, doesnt mean you miss the money as much, or cut a weekend ot and the money you would have spent can go towards a part

I wish but tbh I doubt it, unless I see a car at a crazy good price haha. I'm thinking it'll be the end of August/ start of September.

Why do you need to clean that many magazines? Thats rough going haha.
Motocrossmad
just my companys worth of magazines. just making sure everythings clean after afghan. pretty much the whole batallion is doing a colours parade infront of the queen on saturday in edinburgh and luckily for me i couldnt get a tailored jacket to fit me :D so not doing major drill every day of the week and cleaning kit every nite. so kinda got the rubbish jobs this week, altho we do skive quite a bit. work for an hour take a break then again for an hour. aslong as all are clean for friday they dont care. easy money :D

heres hoping you get a car earlier than expected man
