Hi,

I'm (potentially!) looking to purchase a new ST-3 with the Mountune upgrade in the near future, and a couple of questions raised themselves recently which someone may be able to help with.

Is there any point in going with the rear park assist in conjunction with the dvd navigation as it comes with a rear camera?

Spare tyre versus repair kit, does it take up that much room?

The garage I'm going to aren't listed as a Mountune specialist, but claim to have done them before (on fiesta's at any rate), presumably there isn't any way of checking the change short of getting the car dyno'd?

Talking of Mountune, has anyone successfully negotiated a better deal than listed on their website?

Cheers!

Hello , personally speaking i wouldnt bother with the spare wheel takes up a bit more space plus more weight to the car , but some people like to so guess only you can decide that one , in regards to the moutune im sure the ford mechanics would be good for the fitting of the moutune i would advise a quick call to profile automotive and ask for Gary or John on 0161 406 9797 , they are fantastic at their jobs with good knowledge good prices and although not sticking within the warranty i dont think , you do get a warranty through themselves which is a good warranty! they will always look after you and great to deal with. Although this sounds like a sales ploy it aint , i've just ordered my third focus st and its going straight to them as all mine have. Say Mark with the grey & white ones sent suggested to try them , lol. all the best with your new car and what ever you do , as to the sensors if you get the camera save your self on the sensors and put the money towards more mods! , lol.

Regards ,
mark.

Thanks for the pics from the camera, that answers the question perfectly. The tuning info is interesting but I'm keen to preserve the warranty as knowing my luck the gear box will drop out after 300 miles(!) so the mountune stuff seems a nice way to go.

Does anyone have any experience of drivethedeal, as they're offering £6600 off a ST3 at the moment, which seems a little too good to be true, as the closest any ford dealer has come is £3.5K if I take their finance as well. I suspect drivethedeal won't be a new factory order but one sat on the forecourt somewhere!

I'm sort of in the same boat as you at the moment, I recommend trying Dagenham Motors, Ripple Road, Barking, Essex 0208 911 3333 or Rates Ford, Grays, Essex 01375 393266. Both of them are very competitive. I don't know where you are based but i hope they can help.
