They have to make the "accident" as realistic as possible so use the car most likely to be involved in one

#437017 Fiesta St Or Titanium X - New Driver

Posted by Philf1 on 15 December 2014 - 08:35 PM

Just get the ST, it's only as quick as the driver wants it to be.
Get it now while you are still relatively young, unless you want to own one in your 50's pretending to be a born again teenager.
Read the bold type above, you will only regret buying a ZS or TX.
The ST can also come with a shed load of toys, dont settle for a pauper spec.
Apparently the ST has awsome brakes, seats to die for and it can even accommodate children too.


Hey watch it I'm one of those 50 year old teenagers!!!!!

Have a look at this skip the first 27 seconds.

Interesting watching which rates v-power as the most powerful but can you tell the difference day to day? I have stopped using v-power for every top up partly due to cost and high miles, don't use it for my daily commute or long motorway trips but if I am going for a spirited drive I do. 

 

Not sure if this video has made me change my mind or not.

OK here's my sensible fatherly advice- Get a little run about and keep it for a few months to get used to driving on your own, will be cheap to buy and you wont cry when you bump it. Then get the ST if that is what you want.

 

Now here's my advice as a ST driver-

 

 

 

 

 

 

GET AN ST!!!!

Just put the cash aside and make a lump sum payment as a larger deposit to bring monthly payments down

#434805 Ford Service Club, Should I Sign Up?

Posted by Philf1 on 07 December 2014 - 10:54 AM

You don't have to use ford to keep your warranty but if using somewhere else they must use ford parts. I have a service plan with my dealer not direct with ford and pay £13 a month for 3 years servicing

When I had my Impreza it had a hidden switch to isolate the fuel pump which I just flicked every time I got out. If anyone had tried to steal it they would not get further that a couple of hundred yards before the fuel ran out.
