In Topic: What You Think

Saying that "most fiesta st have led a hard life by 55k", that's a generalisation. There will be some that have, like any sportier model of car, and a higher proportion of which will most likely be on various forums, but the vast majority will be just owned by normal people who drive them normally every day.

I'm confused about where the ST170 comes into it though, as it's a completely different lump to the Fiesta ST engine.

Who's got the hump? Certainly not me, I'm just trying to help the OP.

Age vs mileage, there's not much in it really, and resale value is purely a matter of opinion and how much the buyer wants to pay. If you like the car, and know how much it's going to cost in comparison etc, then why not. It's not as if you're never going to be allowed to change your car ever again if you change your mind!

Yes, the ride with be less comfortable than a Focus. It has a shorter wheelbase, so you'll feel the bumps in the road more, and the suspension on the ST is harder. It is meant to be a sport model after all! :rolleyes:

Way to go on the generalisations by the way artscot79, how many Fiesta ST owners do you actually know? <_<

There are two variations of the wiper stalks, getting the wrong one will blow the fuses. The difference is the intermittent wipers. The early pumas didn't have the variable intermittant, so you need to make sure you get the right one for your car.

Yes. All pumas had green lights as standard.

The Millennium wasn't issued with a build number. The number plaques that you see on some had to be requested by the first owner (providing they were made aware of them by the dealer that they bought from). The highest number I've ever come across is 600 something, so at least a 3rd of the them didn't get one. Plus a previous owner might have decided to keep the number as a momento.
