Hi,

Iv just joined the forum (but also member of focusowners!) Lookin at gettin an orange ST3 as my next car afta fallin in love wit the car nearly 2yrs ago wen test drivin one for my rents new car!!

As my ins is up in apr and will av 2yrs no claims and can afford ins on an st.

It mite be a stupid quest, but how much shud i be lookin pay for an st3 in orange. Cant afford an 08 yet (as only jus graduated), but was thinkin around a 2007 plate with average mileage.

Will be lookin at full exhaust system, induction kit, remap and coilovers as my mods when i get it. Doesnt matter if it comes with any of these (wud prefer coilovers on wen i buy it).

Prices seem to av gone up since last year
. Saw a PB one with 6k miles on 07 plate in apr 08 for jus under £10k from garage!!

Any input wud help

Matt

hi, not sure on a ST3 but in March this yr i aquired my ST2 from Ford with 15k on for under 11K.However just checked on parkers and they would be selling it at roughly 14k now! Whereabouts in Stoke are you? You will find some well priced
's on pistonheads.

Tell me about it. They seem to have gone up the last few years. I keep having a look on Pistonheads every now and then, but not desperate as iv got a mk1 focus at moment. I live near leek if you know where that is? Where abouts are you?

3 for sale at dealership near me up for £13500 with 23000 on the clock. Link Gives you an idea on price's

Cheers mate, i appreciate this. When i get idea of price i can then decide on plate of car. Its one of those things where you think for an extra bit of money you can go newer lol then you end up not been able afford.

I quite like the white one as its bit like one my m8s just got. Lucky boy is in army so its registered in germany and he got it loads cheaper


Least iv got bit of idea now

I hope you have deep pockets


Nope
. Iv got money from what iv saved from workin part time etc, lookin for full time job now iv graduated but cant wait til i find one.

Just thought if i got a ST3 it would have good standard power and all the extras, then could start moddin after. If i find i car i really want with everythin i want will go for it and think of consequences after


Is there many meets on this forum locally?
