paired with this app:-

seems to be getting good reviews online!! got an old android handset I could leave in the car...might be worth a go for less than £10....what you think?

OLLIE OLLIE OLLIE!!!! I'm Collecting My ST On Saturday!!! It's 100% Official!!! YIPEEEE!! The dealer showed me pics of it today at the compound too!! Sorted the finance docs and emailed him my payslip as I get free servicing as Im part of the local borough council. The price was the one we agreed on the phone too....whew. Couple of hiccups...got home to set up the 7 day insurance and ford wouldn't cover me...apparently being 26 isnt old enough... :wacko:...but they will issue the dealer with a 1 day cover note for friday so they can tax the car before my pickup on sat. 2nd Hiccup after get numerous quotes from directline to check all my planned mods would be covered, when I finally called up today their base quote was higher and then £200 extra for the mods and thats without NCD protection. Phoned up churchill who offered me fully comp, with all the current mods im gonna do and with protected NCD for £500!!! :D Directline told me my policy is not set to auto-renew and my renewal docs were put in the post today...just got to forward them on to churchill one they arrive to prove my NCD!! All in all a very happy day!! My new plates arrived but I'll save the pics of those!! :P a whole load of stuff was dispatched for the car...but you'll have to wait and see for that too!! However after reading about the number of keyless fiesta's being stolen, I cant prevent it but a steering wheel lock plus this will at least slow the thieving gits down!!

well was gonna go for a different colour this time but at the last minute went for frozen white with red interior...only other colour I think i really want was the blue but frozen white, when clean on a sunny day......drool!! might go all out with the mods on this one....1)because its an ST and 2) because in a few year ill have to drive a car that looks a bit more grown up!! :D

1 more day down!!! Am just counting down the hours until 11am on saturday morning!!

Todays hiccup, checked my finance docs and there was no GAP insurance included, called the dealer who confirmed it wasnt included and I said that I made it clear from the start I wanted it...few hours later...hey presto, called me back and GAP was now included at not extra cost!! Another win!!

how many miles have you done on your ST now?

im holding off the Mountune for a while - havent had a car this quick before so i want to use that to further inject some life into it at a later date.

No car just compares nowadays - even in a torquey twin turbo diesel i dont find quite as punchy (only marginaly!)

I'm only on 2500ish :)

What about you?

And don't think ill be going mountune at all now as I'm happy with the performance and don't see any justification in the insurance premium.

Nice! I'm on 3800 :)

yeah it kinda makes sense as it'll still be under warranty, but I'm just happy as it is!

To be honest the only thing I want changing is the radio software! But the off button rectifies that, to be replaced with the sound of the engine/turbo.

Bring on the Amsterdam vibes haha (thought best not to hijack welshys thread!)
