2L Focus St Vs 1.6 Fiesta St

19 March 2015 - 09:38 PM



To cut this short i am slowly bringing myself round to spending a lot of money on replacing my humble old ginger mobile and im sort of very much a car guy and i have decided i want Poooowwwerrrrrrr, any how im also as tight as hell, both cars are sitting at around the same price at the moment in the jolly Cornwall and Devon dealers, obviously the Fiesta is more economical but which is the better buy overall, i always had a thing for the Fez ever since it was announced a coupe years back but now the prices are so close its become more of a challenging question. What do you lot reckon?

Local Dealer Offering 10% Off Of Everything With Loyalty Card.

17 December 2014 - 11:33 AM

I got real excited on Monday when I had a letter that looked like a bill but in fact was a loyalty card for previous customers from the local ford dealer, anyway reading the letter it says everything from new and used cars are included which leaves me with a wallet squeezing dilemma :lol: they have 2 focus ST'S an 11 plate and an 09 the 09 has been mountuned and would be about 8499 while the 11 plate would be 9495 or near enough both have under 30k on them, however there is also a 2013 zetec 1l ecoboost that would cost 7945 after trade in aswell and that's done just 18k the sensible part of me says take the ecobubble it's a steal the raging young man that I am says get the ST though, the real question here is was it right of them to send me a loyalty card and give me this sort of a problem just before Christmas? :unsure:

Battery Voltage Query

25 November 2014 - 02:01 PM


This morning I thought after a hellish frost it was a good time to check my ginger monsters battery when I did it read 12.3v bear in mind this was after a 3 mile journey last night and about 20 minutes idling to de-ice the car, this morning I went on it must have been a 15-20 mile thrash, the alternator is working well pushing 14.5 on idle, I stopped the engine and left it for about 5 minutes and checked again and the voltage seemed to be holding on well to 12.7v do you reckon the battery is alright but depleted due to a sudden drop in temps and a few short runs?

I just love coming out of work to a steamy window. Thank God for AC.

I'm Thinking Of A Little Upgrade.

08 November 2014 - 10:49 AM

Right the top and bottom of it is I want a new shape ST, but one can only dream, so I have found myself a lovely little Fiesta Metal on a 2011 plate, now where I'm stuck is a rough idea of how much ,my insurance will go up by from my little 1.4 flame, my current insurance costs £820 being a little 20 year old I guess I'm branded with the boy racer mentality, I'm thinking something like 1100 perhaps more are there any other younglings with such a car who could give me some idea?
