    Default Another year them time to switch

    Always wanted a 3 litre no matter what car, once i turn 21

    As i do turn the big 2 1 in about a year, i want to go for the 3 litre.

    I don't think i would want to stay with a Vec even if it was a 3.2 GSI, so i was thinking fo the money, maybe the pe face S Type?

    Could maybe get a 2003/04 3 litre for about £4-5k, could mod it like a vec with sport bumpers and nice 20'' wheels

    Problem is theyre expensive to service and parts cost a lot, oh and its a ford engine!

    Thoughts?

    At 21 you shouldnt get an s type... Save that for 51

    Go get something a bit "younger" if youve the money to splash
