1 year old examples with average miles are £13k on Autotrader so be careful what you pay new.   It's ok if you plan to keep it for ages but it's a big hit after just 1 year.

Just had a look on there. Scary how many are actually up for sale and on the market. I wonder why so many people are selling them? Also judging by these numbers its right for people to be carful on what they pay for the car. These are not going to have good returns in the short term, longer term they should hold their value hopefully,

Out of interest do STs have some check at 2000k ? I have noticed 1 or 2 adverts in AT mentioning this.

Where have you heard Mountune are bringing out an increased version of the MP215? Or are you referring to Stage 2

I'm referring to the Stage Two mate I believe, I have emailed them enquiring. Hoping to save as quickly as possible for the MP215. How much extra did you have to pay for the insurance?

Get the pumaspeed 240 pack. It'll probably be better value than the mountune one if and when it comes out. Plus it adds nothing horrid to the car.

But it will void the warranty Matt that's why the Mountune upgrade is so popular

The MR pack won't keep the warranty surely? It'll involve decanting. Just looking they charge £700 just for a 15bhp upgrade so no doubt it'll be over 2k for a 240 plus. Just think the pumaspeed will be better value.

I agree that more than like if they bring out a stage two it'll be an MR and void the warranty. There is also a lot better options for your money, ideally I'd like to go with Revo because all the good things I hear about them, but voiding my warranty on my ZS with a bluefin it did cause troubles so I'm glad I traded it in when I had the chance. I'd like to have the car around 230-240bhp but with that will come voiding warranty, but it'll be a lot cheaper than mountune! Guess it's just weighing up the options.

If you want to risk it or arent bothered about warranty then finsport or revo is where to go. I highly doubt stage 2 mountune will make 240 . If like me you like the warranty and don't want to void it then the mp215 package is great and the car is plenty quick enough

It takes about an hour - they usually do it before you collect the car. You can normally pick a plate in advance from your dealers list - then use this for your insurance.

As it's a new ford your dealer should give you the ford insure info and you will need a plate for that so you get your 7 days free insurance to drive the car away.

The dealer needs that insurance document to tax the car.

I picked the plate in advance- and I've got my Ford Insure ready. But what I'm saying is I need to call my insurance company to give them the registration plate, but will they accept having that although it isn't actually registered therefore not on their system?

I think they should accept it if you tell them the reg and what car it is. I think I had the same problem when I got mine, the reg didn't come up on insurance sites at first but I was still able to insure it.
