Topics I've Started

St Alloys Corrosion

01 April 2015 - 08:58 AM

I discovered that all four of my wheels are bubbling up around the valve stems,not to good for a 64 plate car.


My dealer has taken some piccies and so now i am awaiting the decision as to replace or repaint,i don't really fancy the idea of a refurb on a 6 month old car,plus the fact ford have always said they don't have a paint code for rado grey so how are they going to get the paint colour correct?


Just thought i would give it a mention so others are aware that this could become a problem on the rado grey wheels.

Scuff Plate Replacement.

26 January 2015 - 06:22 PM

So I have the half illuminated scuff plate problem .I rang the dealer to sort out a replacement for it and they said they can't go ahead with it until the cars had a full diagnostic on the electrical system.
Is this right? All seems a bit ott for a scuff plate which is a common problem, has anybody else had to do this to get one replaced?
From what I have read people have just had the things done and gone on their merry way.

4 Weeks Of Ownership

02 October 2014 - 07:09 PM

Well i've had the st for 4 weeks now and all i can say is that it lives up to all the hype.


The whole package just seems right,power,handling,brakes,looks are all spot on.


It gets a few admiring glances and some nice comments as well.


The only downside is the sad loss of my metal dust caps of which i suspect are the envy of the new owner at the local bmx park ;)


If i could sum my st up in one word i think it would have to be


EPIC :wub:

Paint Issues

14 September 2014 - 10:32 AM

I noticed yesterday that a small patch of clearcoat on the back bumper has crazed a bit.So i rang the dealer and told them and they want to have a look at it tomorrow.


Not to good on a brand new car and should of been picked up on the pdi imo.


I have also noticed a few patches of bird mess etching in the clearcoat as well where it was sat around in the compound  or dealers.


I'm going to suggest that they have the car back and get these bits and pieces sorted out,not a happy bunny :angry:
