Has anybody managed to recently negotiate a good deal buying new from a NE dealer? Also, are any Mountune approved?

Have a look on Ford Direct at South Shields, nearly new cars with next to no miles on, I know they have a brand spanking new ST3, electric white, black wheels 'cos I was looking at it today. If that doesn't take your fancy then they can secure any of the cars listed on the Ford Direct website. The Middlesbrough branch are also Mountune Approved dealers so they could send it there for any upgrade.

If you want a brand new one then I have always found Jennings at Dunston to be spot on.

http://www.holiways.co.uk/ (Darlington and Durham) i think are really good. Always take my car there even though it's a 40 mile trip. They are mountune approved as well

http://www.cramlingtonford.co.uk/ Cramlington ford are also an approved mountune dealer but ive never used them and the last time i went past the garage looked small with no ST models for sale however i know they've recently sold an RS so they might just keep a small stock of cars there due to the size of the garage.

. The sales guys are friendly and treat you right.

As said before Holiways at Newton Aycliffe are authorised Mountune dealers/suppliers.

I havent bought a car from there but have had my Mountune catback fitted, car serviced and bits and bobs sprayed in their bodyshop and theyve been ok............so far.

A couple of memebers have rescently bought cars from them, maybe they might be able to give you a in-sight into their experiences.

sales and service manager is called Jeff....think he's driving around in a white RS at the moment.

He helps maintain his brother in laws Mk2 Escort rally car.

He's a good guy. He was telling me to get the mountune kit before i had even found an ST i liked!

Peter was very helpful on the phone but unfortunately couldn't come close on price. I expect they'll be getting my service/mountune work though.

Got my St2 from Holiways in Aycliffe just over two years ago. The sales team were good and had no major issues with servicing there since. Dont seem badly priced for a main dealer. Quite often when I pick it up from having something done they will have popped a Monotune leaflet on my seat trying to tempt me. Dont have that kind of spare cash at the minute! One day maybe.
