Went to see it tonight, all was good, mum was happy, it's now sitting on the drive :)

1998 Ford Mondeo ST24, £1400.

Never in a month of Sundays thought she'd buy a car like that, but, I don't think we could have got much better for the money, and not bad considering we spotted it on Autotrader yesterday! ;)

£1400 would have got her a 2004 plate Jaguar S Type in about 2 months time. Shame she couldn't have hung on just a bit longer.

:D

I think I'll elect to not tell her that ;)

It was an "I need a car now" thing, and also an "I don't know what I want" thing, so when looking for all cars within 10 miles for ~£1500, it was the best thing that came up, I suggested it to her and she liked the look of it, so we went to see it! ;)

Theres a lovely Panther black ST-24 round by me at garage, its 2000 plate, and looks great, and best of all its only 1400 notes, hadnt realised they were that cheap now.

You need to paint the house, pebbledash never looks good in its natural cement colour.

Very nice, how many miles has it done?

How do the V6 engines compare to the 2.0's in terms of fuel economy?

I agree with clear indies + new style plates + shorter aerial.
++++ car for the money!

it DEFINITELY needs a de-tango, makes a big difference.

Also, you need to lose the ST24 turbines, worst alloys since 3 spokes. Get some st200 alloys on it and it'll look sorted, but maybe i'm biased :p

detango'd with st200 alloys and perhaps a subtle drop :p

Great idea, apart from one thing:

It's his mum's car :p
