Currently have a white car and it's annoying to clean for sure, and I've decided on the ST-2, here's my options:

 

Blue with red seats

Blue with grey seats (this isn't my favourite)

White with red seats (just annoying to clean)

 

But will blue and red go?

 

Bare in mind callipers are red, ambient lights are red etc... what do you guys think?

 

went with blue/grey. hopefully it looks great!

That would be my choice. Think the red seats are a bit too much for my taste. If it wasn't blue I'dstick with the red as I have on my MK7

 

Got a test drive tomorrow so if the deal makes sense I'll hopefully be ordering exactly the same as you.

 

Did you go for any other options?

Not sure how to quote on my phone, however looking at red for a while I thought it'd be a bit much to go with the red callipers etc. Blue is the colour I went for with grey I interior.

I just got cruise control with automatic headlights, and the style pack. That's it really, don't need anything else unless you can recommend things? I won't really need CC as I only drive to college as I work from home.

Welshy would you be able to supply some pictures on request? Just would like to see certain aspects as they only had a demo at my local ford. ALSO, they're pretty easy to wheelspin by accident because of the power so be careful with that.

Had my test drive this morning. Dealer had 2 in stock but both white with the red interior. Loved the car and am definately hooked now. Guy is looking for a blue/grey for me but suspects it will be a factory build. He thinks he might be able to get a black/grey quicker not sure what to do now, had a black car years ago and vowed never again cause of problems keeping them looking clean but am tempted.

 

What do you guys think?

The black looks fantastic, only problem I have, as you stated, is keeping it clean!

 

Think the ST would look best in black but thats just in my opinion.

I'd say white with red or black with grey, I had to factory order a blue with grey but it'll definitely be worth the wait and money.

Thanks for your views guys. Interior will have to be grey as I don't like the red, each to their own I guess.

 

Lead in time really isn't an issue as I have only had the ZS 10 months so a 3 month build wouldn't be a problem, nice xmas pressy too!. Just want to make sure I make the right choice is all. Definately don't want Frozen White or Molten Orange and have red now so should get something different. I think black looks best when clean and polished/waxed up but blue is sort of classic ST colour isn't it. Ahhh choices choices.  

 

As for extras probably just the style pack, don't need cruise, or auto lights etc. Got a spare wheel in the ZS which I will transfer over and TomTom on my iPhone.

The blue does look fantastic..

 

Scrap the black. If you're getting an ST make it the blue one!

I know it just should be blue it is a distinct colour and makes the ST stand out doesn't it?

 

Think I am going to check out pictures on here of the two colours and let that make my mind up but blue is my gut feeling, thanks guys.

Its a a fantastic blue, and correct, makes it stand out really well. Has that 'performance' feel to it if you know what I mean.

I've seen the blue at a dealers compund but was a bit dusty. Saw loads at Ford Fair as well but just considering my options.
