I would go for the new car and not have to worry about anything going mechanically wrong with the car. Also if its new and shiny the mrs is more likely to keep it that way and be super careful while driving.
Ford try take the mick with the GAP insurance they told me it was 400 quid told them I have never paid that and I have took it out on 4 cars with them now it soon came down to the 200 I have paid previously.
Think you have got yourself a good deal on the ST3 though when do you collect it?
I recently test drove one of the Zetec S red edition have to say it is nothing like the ST2 I currently have. I was hoping that I would like it and be able to save a few bob a month in my repayments but the savings weren't enough to justify what you lose out on in the ST.
What I would've missed is the Sony DAB radio which makes the dash look clearer imo
Having to use keys to start the engine lol
No 6th gear tried putting the red edition into reverse on the test drive
The power delivery although the power is there in there in red edition it takes an age to get there unlike the ST.
If you can afford the ST and insurance then go for it as although the Zetec S is a great car its like comparing chalk and cheese
I am collecting a new Fiesta ST3 on Friday and would like to know what ST3 owners think of this
upgraded model, especially the sat nav. I part-exchanged my '63' plate Zetec S which I liked but was
offered a good deal which I couldn't resist!
Dont use the shortest route option on the sat nav unless you want to end up on roads which amount to little more than farm tracks!
