15500 miles.
Taxed to 31/05/10.
Full Ford service history.

Usual ST3 spec:

Electric windows/mirrors.
Heated recaro leather front seats.

Heated windscreen.
Xenon headlights.
Keyless start/stop.

no thanks, trying to keep it brief.

if i had to describe how much better it is compared to my old corsa then it'd take an hour to read the advert.

actually the cheapest st3 within 100 miles of my postcode is a sea grey one up for 14,995 and that has normal paint, not paint that cost 700 quid extra...

i've done my research thanks, only reply with witty remarks like that if you do too.

brand new rear tyres without mention of brand suggests cheap budget things, thus looking like you dont actually care about the car at all.

no it doesn't. i had the alloys refurbished and caught them in a multi story car park straight after

the marks on the front bumper are just like every other focus st with lowering springs as the bumper is very deep.

not much i can do about that unfortunately, have to go over 4 speed bumps to get into work.

11k is silly cheap, thats the going rate of the older shape models with 3x the mileage.

private good on parkers is 15085
private poor is 12410

i would take between 13200-13500 though so didn't think i was being unreasonable?

it's in the same sentence as the front tyres, thought that would be obvious but i'll change it now.

you're on the weed again aren't you?

it's less than the going rate for these cars. i don't see what your problem is?

if you have no constructive criticism then don't post at all. your baiting is just boring.
