Surprised to see blue seat trim and interior stitching Ken, was that a standard ST2 thing or an extra?

Curiosity might get the better of me for a shiny set of forecourt pics but in general when I've said goodbye to a car I don't ever want to see it again.

I once saw our old family mk4 Escort estate a year or two after we'd parted ways. I'd looked after that car so well, had loads of happy memory road trip holidays in it when the kids were little...

...it was badly signwritten for a one man band painter and decorator with multicolured drips of paint all down the back and a smashed in front wing.

It was like seeing an old girlfriend you remember fondly fondling from your teens... only seeing her as a clapped out middle aged human train wreck.

It tainted the memory somewhat ☹

The blue trim and stitching in the ST2 is really nice I prefer it to the ST3 interior for that. As luck would have it the Editions have the blue stitching too.

Yes, the blue accents and the seats were very smart indeed.
I'm liking the ST3 seats but I don't prefer them to my old ones. The leather bits are freezing on a cold morning.

@Keithsson . I only looked to see if it was sold. When I dropped my new car at the dealer I saw it but yesterday it wasn't there so some lucky person might have it.

Conforms to the age old catch all 'each to their own'. Don't get me wrong it does look nice but looks nicest on a blue car surely.

Blue and red are both strong colours and for me you don't mix them. The only cars I looked at were ST3's with neutral black with white stitching, hence my surprise at blue in a red car.

I didn’t realise the blue stitching was an ST2 thing.
l thought stitching was matched to the car as mine matches really nicely with the performance blue paintwork.

That will be why they went with blue.

What colour is the stitching in the orange car.

Didn’t realise the stitching wasn’t blue on the ST-3. So they colour matched the stitching just for the edition. Wonder how that would affect getting hold of replacement parts.

same with the gloss black exterior pieces. Wonder how many additional items they had to manufacture to pay her spares and repairs.

Are plastic parts like that not just come primed as spares?

I think gloss black would look great on my white with black roof.
I really think a few gloss parts really look good on white and silver fox cars. The first thing i would change on a white car would be the door mirror caps. Paintmodzs stuff is top quality.

Brilliant car that never missed a beat.
The price is not that much less than what I paid for it!
Indeed.

The car market is in a crazy situation at the moment (new and used)!
Spotted several cars identical to mine on Autotrader (same spec/colour/age/miles) basically retailing for pretty much what I paid for it some two years ago!

Fancy swapping to a slightly smaller car in a years time and starting to wonder when I'm actually going to have to order one new!?

Hope you enjoy your new motor.

PS. Was going to get a Fiesta ST last time round. But got such a good deal on the I30N, that the monthly cost wasn't much difference.
