Been offered £7,100 for my Mitsubishi Colt as part-ex, so may consider getting the ST as a track car if I can justify it over the Colt.

My s1600 was in for its 1st service today, so enquired with the dealer about an ST. They said there would be no chance of a test drive without buying! He said they are as rare as 'hens teeth' and dealers are fighting over them.

If I ordered one tomorrow, it wouldn't arrive till mid may at the very earliest, although it would probably be longer apparently.

I was told mine is the first one to arrive at my dealer as they are like gold dust at the mo as I did also read ford has taken about 900 orders for them so i think demo models are going to be rare for a while until the orders are satisfied .

Yeap, those 5000 cars allocated to the UK are going to go in no time. Having read first reviews of the Clio RS and 208GTI, the ST does seem to be the best of the bunch  :D but I would of got an ST anyway.

I wonder if Ford have learnt the lesson from the over supply of the recent Focus ST - keep the supply low and keep the demand strong...

Yes i think they have done just that as i looked at the Focus ST last August just after they started to arrive in the UK an was told i could have one in 3 weeks on a confirmed order so they did have an over supply of them proberbly thinking they'd fly off the production line .
Thing is the Focus is rather expensive once you add a few options an only comes with five doors which lets it down as far as looking sporty , i have had 4 st170's and 2 st225's in the past and always brought 3 door versions an why i decided to wait for the Fiesta st as it looks nicer an cheaper on the insurance , tax an running costs :)

Trouble is the Colt is an awesome machine, I'm on 240bhp after doing stuff all to it, and that's lightning fast, and handles well. I'm going to end up paying quite a bit out for just a track car, when really I have one already >.<

 

Still, lets see what the next few weeks hold :P

haha, it's OLD!!! Get something NEW!!! haha, but if you have a Colt with 240bhp I can imagine you have spent a lot of love and money on it, sweat and blood as well if you did the work yourself no doubt. Still it could be a cool new project, but I can appreciate the comfort you've got if you already have the track car you want, an ST would be a purchase for that new thing feeling, if you know what I mean?

Car has cost £5,500 including buying, repairing and then modifying so it's not too bad really. Already have a diesel Zetec S coming for the newbie :P so it's a tough decision really, I mean if I wrote my colt off, I could just say oops and repair, whereas a brand new £18k car... not a happy situation.

Got a call today, to say my ST2 is on UK tarmac but got to wait until next week for it to get to Nottingham from somewhere down south.
Hey ho, at least all the !Removed! snow & road salt should have been washed away by then

If your ST is in the UK it will be at dagtops which is dagenham as they come in on fords own ferry , mine arrived on the 23rd an has been there all week , my dealer has prioritised my car to be delivered but there are 2,000 cars waiting to be transported around the UK .
