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?
I'm only getting the paint and the light/wiper/mirror extra pack so not as much as paying for the 3 i don't think.
Arnold clark have valued my ZS at £10600 with £9770 still on my finance. So that, with the £750 Ford deposit and me paying £250, makes a deposit of £1829.99. I'm currently paying £227 p/m and this would take it up to £299.70 p/m
I went to my small local dealer and spoke to him about it to see what he could do. He said that basically the car was being sold at cost price. He said he could do it for the same price though as they can make money by referal for the finance and if they make monthly targets etc. He did offer to give me free Supagard paint protection, which is worth £200 retail, to get the sale.
So I've been reading here about some of you having traded in your Zetec s for the ST and became jelous So I phoned my dealer today to ask about the feasbility of doing the same myself. He went away and called me back with the following offer.
So I put £1000 deposit down in March 2013 for a new ZetecS with privacy glass and auto wipers/lights/rear mirror. I am paying £227 p/m on a 2 1/2 year Options plan. My car has just under 8500 miles on the clock and is in great condition.
I was surprised when he told me that I had equity on the car, all be it around £600. He has told me that with Fords £750 depost and a £250 deposit from me I would be looking at around £300 p/m for the ST2 on a 3 year Options plan. Now Obviously I haven't went into great detail yet, and no doubt will hopefully be able to bring that down a but, but I wanted to know what you guys thought. At the moment as well you get the Style pack? free which is grey alloys, painted calipers and illuminated kick plates.
A few photos taken quickly with my phone. Zetec S Ecoboost in race red. Extras include privacy glass and auto wipers/lights and I have changed the bulbs to silver indicator bulbs, blue side lights and Osram Nightbreaker Plus Dipped Beam. Looking at how to upgrade the DRL/Full Beams as well. Have also fitted chrome tax disk holder and at some point I am going to fir an S badge to the front grille similar to the new ST.
