Nice cars those. I've driven a few.

 

I'm currently eyeing up one of those with the exact same spec as a replacement for the Mondeo ST. Unfortunately I can't afford new so it will be the mk2 around 2011/12

Is this the 2L petrol? Just looking at the spec and it's got alot of torque, should pull well?

Yep , can be remapped very easily as well , same engine as the Golf GTI

 

Should be similar on fuel as the Fabia which does about 36mpg on average

Very nice, like the wheels! Is that basically a Golf GTI in a different body then? If so should be a hoot!

Yeah pretty much 0-60 in 6.8 and 154mph top speed.

 

I wasn't going to go for the black wheels , I'm not a fan plus diamond cut wheels tend to corrode easily but figured since I was going for the tinted glass and black pack (Which blacks the front grill, roof rails and wing mirrors) then they would suit better

 

Got a good price through Carwow, local dealer wouldnt do a deal but one in Southampton gave me about 10% off, plus they are on 2.8% apr finance at the moment so made sense

Car looks great. Pity about the wheel tho. I would be gutted! I would have to get it repaired

Tough outcome Liner. You must be gutted.

 

Many years ago, I picked up a new Rover Sterling from the local dealer, drove it about a mile to the local shopping centre and parked it for about 15 minutes. When I returned to the car, someone had scraped a vehicle all down the side of it and driven off. The driver was never found. Even now the memory of it makes me so angry. There is something about damaging a brand new vehicle that is so upsetting.

 

You have my sympathy. I hope you get it sorted out to your satisfaction and that you manage to put it behind you better than I did.
