  1. Zetec S Black or ST

    Just go for the st Connor , I had options a month ago to purchase a st line 140 or the st , I went for a test drive in a 2016 st-2 and instantly bought it. Superb car with loads of get up and go. Good mpg as well if driven normally lol. If you mod yours etc you will always be wondering what the st was like and when you see one you will wish you went for one.
  2. How fast is the ST really?

    It's a superb engine the 1.6 turbo. I bought my 16 plate st-2 4 weeks ago and thoroughly enjoy it. i had a 1.0 ecoboost 100 so a big step up. Mpg very good if you don't hammer it. It just keeps going and going power wise and before you know it you are doing stupid speeds. Yes will throw you back in seat if you plant your foot . very hard ride though...you love it or hate it. I love it but wife hates it lol
  3. Help with SYNC Bluetooth issues

  4. Help with SYNC Bluetooth issues

    Try pressing aux button a few times on the dashboard , I couldn't get anything then discovered the menu on the aux button. Mine is the Sony headset (fiesta st) but also might work on other systems .

  6. How much more fun is the St to Zetec-s

    Hi delboy , sorry for late reply , got a test drive today in a 16 plate st-2 and 1 hour later was the proud owner. pick it up Tuesday evening , can't wait. Was £11995 7k miles in white.
  7. How much more fun is the St to Zetec-s

    Thanks a lot guys , I feel a bit better now looking at an st at 50 yrs of age lol. Always see a 66 plate blue st on the morning run to work and must say it looks smart. Strangely enough I was looking at insurance comparisons today and a 16 plate st comes out the same as a 14 plate Astra Vxr ! About £280-300 fully comp. sensible head on I,ll go for the st.
  8. How much more fun is the St to Zetec-s

    Blimey I thought I was the oldest member on here ! Nice to hear there are older members that drive nippy fiestas. some very valid points all round, thanks guys. I've heard the ride is on the firm side but as thaifiesta said the fun factor will make up for this. Roll on the weekend !
  9. Evening all, As title suggests I,m in the market for an st or 140 st-line / Zetec s.Before I head off to the dealerships to test drive I would like your valued opinions on the st or st line / Zetec s 140. Insurance and running costs arnt a problem now as my title name sort of gives away my age ! Yes I am far too old for one of these but what the hell. I traded in a 100 ecoboost last year for a Astra k 1.0 but change in circumstances means I no longer need a 5 door medium hatch and also would like to return to ford. There seems quite a jump in price between the 2 but I,m looking around a 16 plate. I have seen 140,s on dealership websites and they seem good value for money against I suppose probably the best small hothatch st . How many 140 owners wished they stepped up to the st? Not a position I want to get myself in later..changing cars has cost me a small fortune in the past.should I just go for it is the question. Thanks all.
  10. More expensive petrol?

    Exactly the same as my 1.0 eco boost. Engine slightly quieter but response is worse.i now stick with shell v max , better acceleration and mpg.
  11. Footwell lights

    Great help , many thanks will give them a go..cheers
  12. Footwell lights

    Those footwell lights look better than mine , I have put blue bulbs in but just leaves a round circle about 8inches wide on carpet mats , yours look to light up the complete footwell..which bulbs did you use.

Seen these a few times and wondered if anyone has had any experience of them. Obviously a remap better but as I change my car every 18 months curious on above.
