I currently own an 03 ST170 and for the past few months have had my mind set on an 08 EO ST3 (inc Mountune conversion and cat back exhaust), which seem to be going for around £15k at best. Obviously mountune on top of that is gonna bring cost nearer £17k.
I hope to get around £4k for mine privately and have been offered £3k by a ford dealer part ex.

If I chose not to go for the facelift I'd be looking for an 07 EO ST3 which has already got the mountune pack so therefore saving me the extra cost.
Although I've done a fair bit of research into both facelift and pre-facelift what I'd basically like to know is what you guys really think is my best option and your general opinions. The main reason I'm attracted to the facelift is mainly the better looks (IMO) and slightly glossier interior and cool start button! I'm looking at taking out a 12k loan so £15k really is my max budget inc sale of my car.
I've been browsing this forum for a month or so and it seems to be one of the best for expertise and general helpfulness and I look forward to becoming an owner member very soon
Thanks in advance
