In Topic: Fiesta ST-3

28 February 2014 - 12:07 PM

Has anybody heard anything about the new ST they are bringing out?

I had to get my MK7 serviced at the beginning of the month and had a chat with one of the salesman, I asked a few questions about the new mustang and the current ST-2 as they had one in the showroom, I then moved onto talking about the new ST-3.

From what I can gather, they are going to colour code the recaro seats to the paintjob - ie, molten orange will have the reddish/orange seats, black will have black etc (not sure how this will add anything?), this model also comes with EVERYTHING, auto-wipers, auto lights etc added. He then told me that they were talking with Mountune to add a package to it as standard, but it hasn't been approved yet, I can only guess it would be the MP125 package.

Has anybody else had any other information?

 

That would be great if they include the Mountune package!

 

I bet the price will be around 20k ?


In Topic: My14 St-2 Ordered - Going Out In A Blaze Of Glory

28 February 2014 - 12:04 PM

Some members on here will recall this review: http://www.fordowner...-the-fiesta-st/

 

I largely stand by it although having test driven a stock ST last Saturday, I will say it is far more civilised than the mountune version and still very quick. With a little theft from my savings (which I intend to pay back gradually) and a slight pay rise in April, I decided to snap up a very good deal from Geoff Cox Ford which makes it just affordable despite Uni fees.

 

The Deal

 

I have ordered a race red ST-2 as it is with no extras. Dealer offered £11,400 for my ZS with 5.2k miles on the clock.

 

I currently pay £x per month in total for my ZS, the service plan and GAP cover. The deal over 2 years on the ST-2 is £3 per month less that what I pay now but with no service plan or GAP. I can live without the service plan and my sneaky savings theft is paying for GAP outright at a lot cheaper than dealer prices.

 

The bonus is that when I get it, I will cancel my existing GAP policy and get a full refund less £35 admin fee, so that's £265 thanks very much.

 

When do I get it?

 

It is a factory order and the salesman told me today that it is guaranteed week commencing 7th April... So I look forward to collecting it in October :unsure:

 

What about exisiting finance?

 

I spoke to the salesman today and he has put the settlement through the Ford system today. Being a Ford plan, they can just pay electronically so I am cancelling my direct debit tonight. This means I get payday on Friday and 28th March with no finance to pay so I am banking that cash to pay back the savings theft :)  New agreement payable from 28th April assuming it is delivered when promised.

 

Insurance

 

I currently pay £20 per month for the ZS, best quote for an ST-2 was £27 per month with AXA. Will try Ford once I know the reg just to see what they offer.

 

Conclusion

 

The deal was too good to miss. My circumstances including moving out in the next 3-4 years, dictate that the car will be handed back at the end of the agreement so as per the title, I am going out in a blaze of glory.

 

Key question for existing owners: What is the real world MPG like? I drove like a nun just to see what happened on the test drive and at one point I saw 45mpg. I then floored it joining the A38 and saw 31mpg :lol: Still, got to give it the beans sometimes.

 

I will finish like I did my review, with a paraody of a quote from The Dark Knight: You either die a Zetec-S or you live long enough, to see yourself become the ST! :lol:

 

sounds like you struck  a bargain!

I'm considering going for a ST-2 but Ford are offering me 8k for my S1600 :(

I love the new shape Fiesta
