Evening people, i have a 59plate fiesta and im looking to sell it within the next year maybe next July after my insurance has finished, so hopefully ill have 3 years no claims and 20years of age, and i have fallen in love with a 59plate focus st in a midnight blue colour, its only 4900 and full service history, new alloys and tyres, and with 54,000miles one owner on the clock, is that a good deal? And how much do you guys pay for your insurance?? considering my next year with a 1.25 fez is 850 insurance
What do you think id be looking at? And are they cheap reliable to run? Mpg figures? Full tank cost?
I will have a work car to so this would be a weekend and project car to do what i like to, parts easy to come by? And lastly your opinions a good idea or just a dream?

Mate, I would be asking why is it so cheap? I've never seen a Mk2.5 ST anywhere near that price. I hope it is a good one but I dread to think what your insurance will be.

How much would you say a good one would be? It look mint outside i had a look round and nothing wrong with it new tyres like i said as they still have the sticker and red and blue around them, looks like interior is good condition and is listed as fully working in the forecourt, there doesn't look anything wrong with it but i dont know what would be wrong with it, it looks good ill grap a photo on my way to work tomorrow as i drive by it everyday, but insurance wise do u think id be uninsurable?

being under 25 with only 3 years ncb youll easily be looking at £3000-£3500 a year on insurance simply put youre aiming too high most 25 year olds cant insure an st and no offence but coming from a fiesta to an st is like a moped to a superbike mpg urban about 24mpg max mpg 30 fule costs ridiculous compared to what youre driving i honestly say you need motre experience driving other cars youll be surprised how many st owners wrap it round a tree its a different beast from most cars

That what i thought far to much for me esp wanting a house to :/ and i see what you mean it would be a lot more power, i was also looking at a Mondeo for a company car or maybe the 2lt new focus but i really want to have an st i love it ahaa :( but like you say id also like to keep it from hitting anything and ive only ever driven a transit and a 4x4 a couple of times so my car driving experience aint a great deal tbh. The old focus rs mk1's still look mint nowadays so im kinda hoping to wait to 22 23 ish and try an st again and hopping they will still be in the same condition

There are cheap ST's out there, I have seen and been tempted myself. 6K seems to be the cheapest I have found that do not look like a wreck or a potential money pit, they hold their value. I saw an ST-2 on 104k FSH sell for 7k at auction on a 55 plate last week, if you must have an ST, save up and get a beauty like the one for sale on the forums at the moment. That's the sort of example you want.

There was a MK4 mondy zetec ex police with a 2.5T on a 10 plate that was up for 3500 on 87k recently. Insurance was 1/2 of the price for a focus ST. Same power, but no toys!

You can search completed listings if you login to eBay.

Have you tried getting an insurance quote? It may well confirm that it will be too high but at least you'll know for sure.

yh i done some comparison quotes last night on the general sites, and only got one company that ive never heard off to insure me, but it would be £4000 and im not willing or have the funds to pay that for insurance, so its gunna have to be a waiting game now :/ i might have a look to see what a 1.6 focus is for insuance and the 2lt mondeo titanium x and it might again prove too high for me :/
