I am thinking of changing the ST next year

I was thinking of a few different things

what do you think of a Mondeo Titanium X Sport 2.2tdci 175bhp

Picked one of those up on Tuesday. The 2.5t one though.

I like.

well you will be happy to know that i am also considering a new ST

the reason for changing is that my ST is nearly 4 years old and the mrs wants to change even thought she loves the ST

but in reality the Mondeo is 300 euro to tax and the ST is 1125 euro to tax so big difference

but i will keep you posted i wouldnt buy a Kuga cause the mrs wants something sporty and so do i

I also wouldnt buy Audi because they arent very reliable and dont like them and the Leon isnt my cup of tea

We are a Ford family

My brother in law works in one ofthe biggest dealerships in Ireland Audi/VW/Mercedes/Mazda/Porsche/Skoda and he said that the Audi's are very unreliable and are the worst in the dealer always giving trouble with Turbos and other stuff just and VW Ireland are telling people to keep there Passats in gear because the electric handbrake doesnt work sometimes and the handle for the boot fell off one my brother was looking at in the showroom plus Audi's are boring and over priced

i get what ya mean but look at them (BORING)

and the reason i said about the way the Irish drive is because i have a cousin in Belfast
and he had 5 different cars in a year and :censored:ed them all

also the first 2 services on my
fords smashed my car and tried to give it back to me thinking i would notice
so please don't try and tell me about unreliable
