Just orderd my new ST3 in Tangerine Scream with all the packs £24565.
They have one in stock so I could have it in 2-3 weeks but am going to wait to pick her up on 1st March.

That's a good deal especially if you don't get privilege. I've waited twice for a new plate but now a cars old within 6months so don't bother anymore unless its like a week wait lol

I was pleased with it mate, £1500 deposit allowance helped.

Lol mines on a 12 plate. I left that on till the 62 plate came out then stuck my plate on it. Lol yea that finance deposit allowance is good. I've done it on my last 2 cars but got the st as soon as it was released so wasn't available however still got a cracking deal considering most dealers I tried at the time was only will to give me my privilege discount and no dealer discount.

Exactly the same here, my blue ST-2 was in stock so is being shipped down to the dealer as we speak, so I could have it in 2 weeks time. However I think I'll hold out to the 1st March and get it on a 13 plate. It seems silly to register a car in February.

I like private plates, makes people guess how old it is.
I assume you work for Ford to get privilege discount?
Exactly and yep work for fords. If you know someone who works for fords there is a thing called ambassadors discount. You get half the amount off a ford employee would so for the focus they get £1700 so you would get £850 off ontop of the deal you already got if your dealer is decent. By that I mean some will work out a deal with your discount but the way it should be done and some dealers do is you work out the best possible deal then take your discount ontop of that otherwise no point in getting the employee discount in the first place. Also the emplyee discount ain't what it used to be, I get more off Mazda lol
