Well, life had been pretty rough the last few months, and after talking to my dealers a few months back about it, I returned my 2013 Zetec S TDCI, and yes... 

 

Yep... You guessed it, brand spanking ST3!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D

 

Spirit Blue

Rear Parking Sensors

Centre Head Rest

Style pack

 

Eh, nothing else to fit to it!!

 

Oh my god....  The colour is amazing, after a quick polish and clean, it is just a joy to drive, and already noted a few additions I did not know about...  ST3's have total closure!!!!  Either use the fob or the door button for 3 seconds and they open as well as close which I thought was only the closure on this system.  Plus it also has some very nice ambient lighting in the roof each side of the interior light!

 

It also now reads my texts from my phone and the woman's voice on the Sync system sounds more......human!  Pronunciation is far better! Plus the deal I got on my old ZS and the amazing deal I got on the ST3 is just... Well, the less said the better!  But I cannot speak any more highly of Hendy Ford.

The insurance was no different, to what the annual was on my ZS, more pictures to follow later..

Very Very nice, I cant wait till Sunday now for mine!

 

Weird you mention Hendy, I have ditched them recently and moved my business to Salisbury. Had enough of Hendy and amateur's in the service departments.

Very very nice I must admit, jealous atm.

Can I ask If you chose the alloys that colour ? Is it an option to get the radial grey or whatever ? (Darker colour alloy)

Well I don't deal with the mortals downstairs Clarky...lol.  I only talk to management!!  But I cannot fault my particular dealer site.

 

I know exactly how you feel, waited a month to get my hands on mine knowing it was only a few miles down the road, lol.

 

The total closure is a great little addition, and I did wonder how close the trim and spec levels of the ST3 was to the Titanium X...?

I am loving the ST3 badge on the front, mine doesn't have that! Did it come standard?

Hey Nathan, yes I chose the silver alloys over the radial grey...  I just didn't know if liked them enough, so went a little different than the norm!  :D

Looks stunning, really nice colour too.

Seems to be a lot of people jumping to the ST from the ZS at the moment.

Congrats on the new motor.

I think you have everything that a Titanium X has, even down to the rear centre headrest.

You have rear parking sensors too, which most people that actually have them find really useful, although there is the odd one that thinks not.

Looks good!  As above, did you add the 3 to the front badge?  Also, any chance of a pic of these ambient lights in the roof?  All I have is the main centre one and map reading lights!

Did you have it cleaned and waxed before delivery? I'm worried about mine, Hendy cleaned my red st before deliver and was full of swirl marks, might request my st3 is left and I will do it myself

It's a bit crazy recently. I have a ZS on order though so I'll be refilling the ranks soon enough. Though at this rate I'll be the only one haha!
