Second hand is usually good and was initially my preferred option until the difference between the two was so small. In my case the extra warranty cost about €200, which I think is probably worth it.

So we can be! ;) hopefully meet up at some car meets in future. I'm not sure on what I'll get on the lip, tempted for a carbon wrap. What specs has your new ST3 got?

I'd have to see what it looks like first before I'd commit, matte black would look good though. Exactly the same is yours. What registration have you picked, or PM me it? There was naff all choices for mine :( so glad I don't have parking sensors either, always get on my nerves! Not really needed in a small car either I think to be honest.

Haven't chosen plate yet going in tomorrow to sign everything and will do it then. 14 plate though so it's cheap. And yeah don't really need them the st isn't exactly big. Plus they look bad on the bumper and ruin the look. Is yours gonna be 64 or 14?

Parking sensors are for disabled people really or just the plain hopeless. Carbon the lip and the bonnet at the same time, looks boss with a decent blue

 
I've seen a picture of somebody who has done that, not sure if their on this particular forum. Didn't look great, but they had wrapped the car Matte Green too :/

Urgh carbon and green looks rank in any case, has to be a dark color only blacks, reds and blues.

Mines going to be on a 14 plate, got it cheap enough and I'm not fussed what plate it's on really, I know it can reflect the price when you go on to sell but got a good deal anyway.

I don't get all the hate towards parking sensors, I love mine they work so well. They pick up anything even bushes, and good luck reversing near bollards and low walls without them (something I have to do when I get to work every day, in the tightest car park ever). I'd have added front sensors too if it was an option, I hate that you can't quite see where the front / corner of the bumper is.
