#543982 Saying Bye Bye To My St

Posted by ayrshiredude on 26 November 2015 - 08:24 PM

So have had my ST3 for just over a year now and, though it is nice to drive on the open country roads, I don't find it comfortable for day to day driving,  I am also paying a fair amount per month for it.


So have just bought a new Red Edition Zetec S from my Local Ford Dealer.  Got a stupid deal and a great trade in (about £600 more than the settlement figure). Picking it up on Monday :)


It has the auto wipers/lights/ dipping rear view mirror and privacy glass.  Its the new 2016 model so has the LED running lights, LEd brake lights, 17" alloys and Dab radio.  


Who else has this car?  Whats your thoughts on it?

Ah ok.  Mine had the emergency assist but not a separate box like that.  Must have been incorporated into the wiper/light sensor unit

Did you drive any of them? The 208s new 1.2T is meant to be a great engine.

Yeah I did, it was ok but GT Line has no sports styling or suspension.  It wasn't a bad ride, just not as composed as I'm used to.  The only issue was I Could only get the 3 door model as a factory order which mean t several months.  Same issue with the Corsa.  I wanted the 1.0T but noone had any.

I got all 4 of mine replaced under warranty however I was told it was only a one year warranty for the wheels.

Update - went to my Ford Dealer yesterday and he made a call and then told me I was going to get 2 new wheels :)  Going in for its first service next week so he is going to take photos then and arrange to get the new wheels.

I bought something similar for a previous car and after a lot of work and effort had to return them as I was never able get them aligned correctly.  Even after a garage tried as well.

I never quite see the point of lowering a car so it scraped over every speed bump.

daft question does it actually do anything other than look good?  Does it come painted in the glossy black?

#411696 Some New St-3 Photos

Posted by ayrshiredude on 20 September 2014 - 10:21 PM

So spent some time today polishing my car and took some new photos, I think they look way better than the previous ones I took.

#410514 Suggestions For Front Speakers

Posted by ayrshiredude on 16 September 2014 - 11:54 PM

You need to rip from the original CD to Flac.  Converting from an already compressed file is not going to improve anything, you can't put back whats already been taken out lol.


A Song in Flac format should be exactly the same quality as the original CD as its Lossless.

#397627 Probably Crazy But...

Posted by ayrshiredude on 14 August 2014 - 09:21 PM

So got some quoted back from carwow.  Priced the ST3 but even though the best price was under £17000 it still a bit too much I think.  So I've tried again with the ST2 and see what prices come back.  Does anyone know if the Ford £750 deposit and the free Style pack would still apply and would they still give the decent trade in?
