  1. Happy Birthday Nitram!

  2. will the way, how do you post pics?
  3. Well, did the deal today! Couldn't find a blue one with decent mileage, condition, etc, and a black one has come up - it's absolutely mint! It's a July 2007 in Panther Black so I have bitten the bullet and gone for it. I love the blue, but black is close 2nd, and she looks great in the metal! Hopefully get her next week - can't wait! :D
  4. I know hoy you feel dude, similar story with me and my first girlfriend many years ago. Best advice I can offer is that it will get better with time. Stay positive and believe in yourself and you'll pull through! Get out there and enjoy yourself for a while, play the field while you can! ;)
  5. I had briefly considered the saloon, but they are far harder to get hold of. Also, with an 8 month old daughter and a black labrador, the hatch is hard to beat for practicality! By Bro in Law is one of the top men at a local dealership, so I am fairly confident that I'll get pretty much as good a deal as I can hope for. I'll still haggle though!! My thoughts were that with car prices so low (especially the Mondeo, which depreciates from new like a stone) and high demand for the Avensis in the south of Ireland, I can pretty much take advantage of a high trade in against a low purchase price, with the added benefit of the high spec & performance. Cheers Rikos, I agree - every time I see the blue I think "Yes - definitely blue" I just can't wait to get the deal done so the decision is made! :)
  6. Yeah, I've been searching the Auto Trader site non stop looking at various pictures. So much so that my brain feels black and blue Every time I sway towards black I see a blue one and change my mind back again. It may be more common on an ST, but as you say, black is common on all makes and models (including my current Avensis). I've more or less decided on the blue, although I may have to wait longer to get it Have you got one yet? If so what do you think of it? I've been loyal to Toyota for years, and am a little nervous about the jump to Ford.
  7. Hi everyone, I'm in the process of buying a 2007 St TDCi. My bro in law is a car dealer and can get me a black or a Performance blue one. I had initially set out for the blue, but after looking at some pics on the net the black also looks really nice. I test drove a silver one with the recaro seats, but the chrome detailing doesn't stand out as well on the silver. I know it is a matter of personal taste, but any opinions on colour? Your collective thoughts gratefully received!
  8. Thanks for the info - let the haggling begin!
  9. Greetings to all from a new member! I am looking at purchasing a 2007 ST TDCI to replace my current Avensis, as it is 4 years old and starting to cost me money. I've never owned a Ford before, as I have been loyal to Toyota for my last 3 cars, but the performance and specification of this model for the price seems hard to match from any other manufacturer. I guess all I'm looking for is other members experiences of this model and any things to look out for when buying one. The car I'm looking at is a 2007 (March) with 26K on the clock in Performance Blue, and the dealer is asking £11,995. Is this about right? Your input would be very much appreciated - this site is very impressive!
