Where does he say he has bought one and who said its an issue
 

this is a very welcoming comment


It was light hearted, signalled by the laughing smiley on the end.

Only person with an issue here is clearly you.

If you really want the ST and can afford the increased costs, get it.

The ZS is a good car but if you are going to be filled with envy every time an ST goes by, wishing you had got one, that'll clearly be no fun.

If you'd be content with a car that looks good and has decent handling but wont cost too much to run, get the ZS.

ST-2 was always my favorite option, loved it since the day I first saw one and the bucket(?) seats just looked amazing... I wouldn't drive too much other than to college/back (therefore saving petrol)

If anything, I enjoy having speed, I love being able to shoot past someone if I had the opportunity. 

 

I'd set an allowance to spend on petrol a week etc, I mean the ZS with all the options I want will cost £14,400 but the ST will cost dead on £17,000... Will the ST hold its value much better?

ZS probably won't hold it's value as well, due to it being lower spec than the Titanium, and they're not overly different to buy new. The ST will hold it's value more, but then again you'll loose out anyway on the fact you're buying new.

However, I'm only paying £17,000 as opposed to the £19,000+ people pay currently. But I do agree, yeah.

 

At the moment I work from home and don't have college so I'm always out with my friends but I think once I get the ST-2 (decision MADE) then I'll just be using it for home->college and just usual weekend outings. Will be good anyway, beautiful car and I've always wanted one since I first saw one (it beat me off the lights and I was so distraught lmao).

ok maybe it sounded different to me, to me it seemed like you was trying to claim he's stupid.

I appreciate you sticking up for me :-) Regardless, after speaking to Craig he's definitely convinced me to proceed with my ST-2! I'll definitely keep you guys updated, can't wait to drive my own!!!

like i said the best thing you can do is try one out and you could even go for the st-1 which is the same car just less options most of them arent necessary anyway.

Not too sure on the differences but the leather seats are a must, especially because they're heated... simply amazing. And I'd want the privacy glass, push to start etc.

 

I may sound like the snobbiest 17 year old you'll meet but money truly is no issue (self employed, own a business, no parents involved) and for the stuff i'm getting £17,000 is a steal, great investment if I do say so.

 

Spirit blue ST-2 with smoke storm part leather seats

Air conditioning + Electric Auto Temperature Control (EATC)
Automatic headlights + automatic windscreen wipers + auto dimming rear view mirror
Ford SYNC Bluetooth connection with voice control and USB port
Keyless entry with 'Ford Power' starter button
Sony DAB radio/CD player
Style pack - Fiesta ST
Tyre repair kit
 
I'd need the automatic headlights, I'm such a fail at putting them on myself (current car is automatic too) and I went for EATC because I can't stand the dial temperature bit, I'd prefer the one with the buttons.

Something im going to have to get used too when i pick my baby up(Race Red St-2, with style pack and sat nav for free) tomorrow at 10.30 (can you tell im excited) is switching the lights and wipers on myself. Had fiesta titaniums before and loved not having to worry about it.

What do you mean by booting it? How fast would you say you were going roughly? Like cruising speeds on NSL roads etc?

Ball park figure for 6 month old zs with heated seats etc is 14k.
Ball park figure ST 2 17k
The 3k different doesn't bother me what does is running costs so the zs is what im considering however. ...
I'm reading on average people are getting 46mpg with Zetec S 1.0 123bhp
Which is poor for today's standard especially as it is labelled as a eco car id expect 50-60mpg or greater.

So knowing zs economy is not great my attention is turning more to ST.
What sort of mpg is one getting in the ST2 driving sensibly and hammering it?

I appreciate the ST will have higher insurance and has road tax but lets be logical about the tax free 1.0 you paying a high price for that engine thus effectively paying upfront for tax.

If the ST produces near enough mpg to the zs in real driving then perhaps I shall treat myself to the ST instead.
