#352726 Mountune Upgrade Help !

Posted by ZS_John on 11 April 2014 - 07:09 AM

£600 is a lot of money if it doesn't really improve the car a whole lot.

I'll have to have a read properly and have a look around. Might just save my £600 and go on driving holiday instead :P

It has more than enough power standard to have fun with it :)

Okay cheers I think I'll just ring them and see what happens.

As for not getting it and looking at puma speed it haven't really heard of them I just no that Mountune is fords own / doesn't void the warranty so I think thst a safe bet with them.

I can afford it, and I can afford to run it.... problem is the mpg. I have to work out if the fun factor will override the feeling of burning money every time I put my foot down.
 
I get 49mpg on my zetec s and I was worried I'd be getting like half that in the ST. I share the car with my mrs cause I work nights. Pointless for her but I hit a dual carriageway on my trip to work and it's dead in both directions so I can really get on the accelerator rather than pottering around town. I've read a few people saying around 30mpg on the ST which is a hit and like I say I could afford it, I jsut don't wanna feel the money flowing out of my accoutn and thinking wow this aint worth it.
 
I have a feeling though that it would be.... looks so much fun.... maybe I should give it a test drive

If you go and test drive one I guarantee you will walk out of Ford with a deposit on one :P

As for the mpg I was getting about 50 in my ZS and when I went to test drive a ST he was getting 40 so it's not far out I've had it for 60 miles or so I've done in it and it says I'm getting 25 at the minute which I no isn't the best but my engine is new 67 miles I've done now so it will take a bit before it levels out and I get the true mpg.

I wouldn't be worried about feeling like fuel is burning out your account, just don't put your foot down :P haha

I haven't took it over 4000rpm yet as I had mixed feedback saying you don't have to run the engine in and others saying you do so I'm going to leave it till I've done 200 miles or so before I start giving it abit :)


With a car like this who cares about spending that tiny bit extra of fuel money a week when every time you look at the car there is a instant smile on your face and at every opportunity of free time you just are thinking about taking it for a drive for me that's priceless and shows how good / fun the far is.


I'd go and test drive one, that will seal the deal haha :)

So finally on Friday 14th

I picked up my Spirit Blue ST - 2 with style pack fiesta.ImageUploadedByFord OC1394918024.338957.jpg
I am over the moon with it absolutely great car ! The attention to detail in some areas of the car you'd expect from Mercedes etc

After only having it for a few hours and driving it for a few hours I am extremely pleased I went for the ST in the end after swaying from the new A3 to the new A-Class I think I chose the right one.

Every time I look at the car I can't help but smile ! !ImageUploadedByFord OC1394917972.402069.jpg ImageUploadedByFord OC1394917991.276330.jpg ImageUploadedByFord OC1394918010.625457.jpg

Not really going to change much on the car as I like it how it is. The only things I have done / doing is changing all the lights.

I put LED pretty much where I could apart from the glove box as I can't work out how to get that light out. I need another 2 bulbs as I didn't realise how many interior lights it actually has haha compared to my 2010 ZS

Can't wait to take it on a nice drive on some windy roads and see its full potential ! !

I'll try and get some pictures of the lights all the lights tomorrow :)
