Well, in the end we went for Car #2. Mainly because the wife didn't like the interior (too plastic apparently). I'm quite pleased actually as I preferred the newer one (oh,alright, I wanted the GPS and Cruise Control!) Fortunately, their are willing to take our old 2001 Focus for 1800 Euro. It's got a big dent in one side and 200K km on the clock. Also, the airco doesn't work, the indicators don't turn off by themselves and the central locking doesn't work on the driver's side (but they didn't ask if there was anything wrong with it and I didn't volunteer the information!). So I reckon we got a decent deal there. Thanks for the advice. Can't wait to drive our "new" car.
Hi all, A local Ford dealer has two available and I can't decide which one is the better deal. Car 1 S-Max Titanium 2.0 TDCi Price: 23000 Euro/20,864 Sterling Mileage: 28809 km Options Electronic Stability Programme Heated Windscreen + Solar Reflect Panoramic Roof Bluetooth with Voice Control Aluminium Wheels 18" Air-conditioned glove compartment and double automatic air-conditioning Car 2 S-Max Trend (called a Zetec in the UK I think) 2.0 TDCi Price: 28000 Euro/25,400 Sterling Mileage: 10 km (basically a brand new car) Options GPS Automatic headlights Cruise control Parking Assist Electric wing mirrors Electronic Stability Programme Heated Windscreen + Solar Reflect Panoramic Roof Bluetooth with Voice Control Aluminium Wheels 18" Air-conditioned glove compartment and double automatic air-conditioning I guess they both handle and drive the same but I'm wondering if the few extra options on the Trend version are worth the extra money
