$27,990 ST170!; $22,990 Zetec!

Bargains bargains bargains!

Been meaning to post this for a while but finally got my arse in gear and got typing.

Was flicking through last Fridays Cars Guide (Herald Sun) and Strappford are advertising BRAND NEW Ford Focus ST170's for $27,990 and BRAND NEW 3-door Zetec's for $22,990!!!!! What a bargain!

The add lists the RRP for the ST170 as $33,620, but on the ford website it still lists as $37,000. Either way this is a saving of over $5000 for each car. It even has savings of $7000 on brand new BA Fairmont Ghia's!

It has got me really tempted and i am going to enquire online if i can add the ford employee discount on top of the ST170 price!

Breath......

Re: $27,990 ST170!; $22,990 Zetec!

Please dont hate me but receieved a call from Strappford after i emailed them and it was an oversight on both our parts.

They printed a photo of a ST170 with the price, but it actually had it listed as a Zetec- bit sneaky on there behalf i reckon, but i prob should have noticed (it really pisses me off when dealers advertise cars with pics of totally different cars)

Still, can save $5500 on brand new Zetecs! A base 3- door manual will only cost $22,990. Keep haggling and i am sure you get some some 17" wheels or kit thrown in, which makes it pretty damn attractive price

Re: $27,990 ST170!; $22,990 Zetec!

just what we bloody need... $5 grand discounts to totally rip the backbone out of Focus Zetec resale prices. They're doing another EL Falcon job. Brilliant.

Whilst that is true Zetec, as far as i know I have only seen Strappford offering such savings. The EL Falcon deal was a dealer wide offer. Having said that, it defintently isnt a great position to be in....
