    Wink I've only gone and done it......

    Well, I placed the order for the Focus ST3 in silver with ebony leather over the weekend. Should hopefully take delivery 1st September although this is no way guaranteed!

    Trade in value against my GSi is absolutely shocking, but then I guess they are very specialised.

    Hopefully this one will prove a little more reliable than my Friday afternoon built Vec lol!!

    i saw an ST in blue the other day and it looked great. The orange is good too but a little bright for me to live with everyday.

    I think there's a huge backlog on ST orders. Nice car though! As a matter of interest, how much did you get for your Vec. (And what year/mileage was it)

    There is a huge backlog on orders, some dealers are even quoting MAY 2007 for delivery If you have extras on the car, the delivery is a lot longer, but I’ve just gone for the standard 3 door one, so hopefully the delivery of 1st Sept of ok....

    The price that they have offered is shockingly bad! 2003 (53 plate) with 34,000 miles, black £5000. Yep thats right, not a miss type £5000!!! They could offer me now £6500 but because I use the car for work and do quite heavy mileage they have said to be safe in sept they will def give me 5 grand!! Now that’s what I call deprecation lol..!

    I don't think they are that much quicker standard than the GSi, but the handling and tuning potential on them is great. With the up rated intercooler and Bluefin chip, people are getting around 275 to 285 bhp.

    It's a shame really, because I really like the Vec, but it's spent more time in the garage than on the road. I looked at getting another one, but for the price I might as well get the focus (privilege discount of 20% on list price).

    It looks like they have knocked your privilidge discount of the trade in price, I was offered 6.5k on an impretza 6 months ago, and it`s an 03, 2.2 with the same mileage as yours ..

    You could ask what they would give you for a 2.2Sri then get someone on the site to do a trade with you, in case they are`nt keen on the big ol 3.2 ??
