This is 218 a month, they wanted 275 a month for an ST200. I could've got a Focus ST3 for that so it's not value for money imo. Nice car, but I can't justify that amount per month on something that sits in a carpark all day every day

I've had 3 black cars and every one has been involved in an accidents (all no fault). My brother also picked up his black fiesta ST3 a couple months back, so didn't fancy having the same as him

Also, black cars are an absolute nightmare to keep looking clean.

They phoned me to chop mine in start of sept, I asked him to price up the ST200, but then missed the next couple of calls.

Problem I have is ive put too much on my current one and cant be bothered to take all the parts back off. I also had the front end wrapped so that would be a wasted chunk of cash

You know you own a mini when you've changed your shower gel for swarfega.

They are decent cars but don't feel very quick as standard.

My mates 65 plate is now on 13k miles, it's 4th turbo. And now runs 296hp at the wheels (roughly 340bhp) with 2bar of boost

Got some mountune springs for the Fiesta in the Christmas sale. Nice looking things.



Haven't been able to clean either car since before Christmas, so it's looking a little worse for wear at the moment. 12 hour days and weekend work means I have no time whatsoever.



MOT next week, so will need a wash for that.

stops engine twisting, gives the impression of more throttle response and smother apply power after gear changes as the engine isnt moving anywhere near as much.

stops the horrible wheel hop the st's develop when the roads are slightly greasey.

Was going to spend the weekend fitting the mountune springs to the Fiesta, but got asked to work Sunday very late on Friday night, so plans have changed.

Bagged some Facelift air vents and heater controls from a breaker on ebay for 100. They just have chrome bits on to brighten the interior a little and it was all my car was missing to have a fully Facelift interior.

Not the best pic, I'll admit. Will get some more after I've cleaned it all up inside.

Heater controls wouldn't work correctly, probably because they're not designed for a pre-facelift, so I had to split both units and use my pre-facelift back and circuit board with the Facelift front. Took a lot of patience due to silly clips, but got there in the end.
