Hello everyone, i started out last year (January) buying a motorcycle for £1500.00 and swapped it for another, then another, then went back to cars citroen c4 coupe 2.0 hdi vts with a fair amount of rear quarter panel damage and now i have this wonderful (yet veeeeerrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyy slow) fiesta 1.4 tdci style with 110k but has full comprehensive service history, all past mots and in fab condition (no trolley dinks whatsoever) 1 previous owner and has mot till oct 13 and (£30) tax till end of may. All past mot certs with no advisories.
I will post pics of how it was when i got it (had already detailed it tho in pics, then i added the following
17" momo warrior alloys (mint)
heko wind deflectors
4x new genuine mud flaps
and i have "de-tangoed" the headlights.

I am a 38 year old fart so the car suits me really lol, and i am being a little mean saying how slow she is as really for around 6o-odd bhp she is quite nippy when i need her to be :)
Anyway, here goes..........

NOT BAD REALLY TO SAY A £3K CAR STANDS ME AT £1500.00 :)

(WHEN I GOT HER 0155/0157/0158)







(now 1 WEEK LATER THE REST)

TO DO LIST.......

Lower 30-40mm
stubby alloy aerial
"somehow" colour code door bump strips"??
maybe later get st kit bumpers etc?
OR......let it go and buy a zetec s/st 150??

Nice car - looks good, but can't help thinking it would feel very slow compared to your motorcycles and at your age the insurance (probably) won't break the bank

Rather than spending a lot of money on the 1.4 (and probably not get as good a result) you may be better/ more cost effective starting off with an ST150 and lowering/ modifiing it.

They are good all- round cars with a good balance of power/ handling and decent economy too - the 38 year age is important, if you were 18 it might be different :)

Haha yes, the main reason though i have diesel cars is mainly for the cost effectiveness of them. This little bugger seems to run on fresh air, tax is £30 pa and believe it or not the insurance (39 next month) fully comp protected for this is still a mighty £320.00 pa and i have 11 years (full) NCD!
We are currently paying for a £5000 holiday to egypt in July otherwise i would look for something less economical to run. I have been offered 2 (blue) ST150's already on (05) plates but ideally if i were to get one, i would like the MK6.5.
I also have a clean drivers license and it has been (touch wood) since passing my test at 17 almost (22 years ago!).
Anyway, thanks for the input, nice talking to ya. :)
