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 :/

 

got a quote for a 2.2 tit x mondeo for £1300 id be happy to pay that and also the focus 1.8 petrol zetec s is £1100 wow im surpised hehe taking these numbers home and seeing what i might upgrade too hehe

Try Greenlight, Sky Insurance and Adrian Flux, i used all three during my ownership of an ST3 and i wasnt much older than you when i got it, plus i had remapped it to 285 Bhp with a dreamscience and they covered me for a little over £1300

That ST is waaaay too cheap. You'd be lucky to get a high mileage 55 plate pre facelift for that in reasonable condition. That's either a dodgy ad, a write off or stolen and recovered etc or just plain broken.

 

For a 59 plate with that sort of mileage you would be looking between £10,500 -£12,000 depending on trim level/condition and if it's from a dealer of private etc.

 

When I priced mine up, it's one of the cheapest facelift ST3's within about 100 miles of my house with less than 60,000 miles. Plus it's the best one of course!  :P

its at a car dealership local to my town, they dont have a website but ill grap a piccy on my way home tonight, its defo the right price and the condtion is great, the millage is correct accoring to their salerep who spotted me learing at it and open it up for me, inside looks in very good shape too.

i havnt done the reg checker thing, just because i carnt afford the insurance if not id have now that plus got an AA tec to go round it and give it the full check before commiting to anything,

altho im not 100% if the plate is correct or not as its a 59 plate but doesnt look like your james, it looks like pre facelift it could be private reg and i got confused but defo a xx59 xxx as thats what drawn me in plus the price hehe

 

as for insurance i wont touch an st for a couple of years as its not even ecomonicly vesable ( spelt wrong i bet ) haha, but a mondeo or focus insurance is well in the ball park :)

If it's a pre facelift that's a bit more like it but to be honest that's still incredibly cheap. Cheapest good condition ones start around £6k normally so still sounds a little too good but you never know I guess! I'd certainly be checking to see if it's a cat C or cat D. That would probably be a sensible price for a insurance repaired pre facelift.

 

Also on, a private reg you can't put a newer reg than the age of the car on so it must be on a pre 2001 style plate ie. S559 ABC

If it says 59 on the plate then it has to be correct.
A private plate can't be used if it makes the car appear newer than it is.

Could be an old style plate though couldn't it? Like the example I gave above?

Right, got a pic of the car, and the story to with, asked the dealer, they bought it for 6500 from a young lad, it had 59plates on it, when they then went through the v5 and documents they discovered it was on stolen plates and had a bad history, 2 previous drug searches in the car, failed mots and impounded for no insurance. So wasnt a great start, they found the correct plates from ford, and then ford told them it was a cat d repair which happened when the car was 4months old, they wanted a very quick sell to get it back out and recover any money they spent, the dealer then said they havnt been able to find or contact the previous owner, so they toke there losses and sold it yesterday for a loss, he said it was the worst mistake hes every bought for the company, when they bought it the lad wanted a quick sell cash and go the dealer offered him 6500 hopping to sell it for 9+ making a quick profit but not the case. The car was perfectly fine but will no doubt cause a lot of problems for the new owners who pick the car up tomorrow.

Thats the story i got after spending 40mins with the dealer and then he tried selling me a corsa lol

Original plates are a 57 here's the pic

The new owner will get pulled at least half a dozen times until the PNC markers are updated ;)
