    Default Can I have your opinion?

    Hey,

    I'm pretty sure none of you guys know me, but I've got a question.
    Right now I drive a Hyundai Santa Fé, which isn't stanced at all.
    But I'm planning on selling it and getting myself a Ford Mondeo Wagon 2.5 V6 170bhp.
    For reference:



    What do you guys think, get the Mondeo or get a Ford Scorpio Cosworth, as I was planning.

    Edit, I am gonna stance the Mondeo.

    Also, please excuse my English, I know it's pretty bad.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey, personally, I dislike that shape of mondeo, so I'd say go for the scorpio.

    P.s. your english is very good.

    First of all, your English is great. Much better than many native speakers on this forum

    Here's a small hint as to the answers you'll get here:

    The Mondeo in your country is called the Ford Contour in the USA. The Ford Contour is widely regarded as a dumb car, only fit for grandmothers.

    The USA also doesn't have a very large Cosworth presence, so the name is somewhat revered here. Especially when it comes to the Escort Cosworth -- the only good Ford Escort ever made. And I should know -- I've driven multiple generations of USDM Ford Escorts. Terrible cars.

    I say ditch the Mondeo and get a Scorpion. At the very least, it looks better.

    ^^ Looks interesting, but it's still a fucking Contour. It's like the SRT-4; yeah it's got turbo and it looks decent stanced, but it's a fucking Neon, the survived-abortion of the 90's auto industry.

    no
    Hatchbacks, wagons... It's NOT all the same. You want in? Don't get a mazda 3, get a mazda 6 wagon. Don't get a wrx get a legacy wagon. and theres a reason the A3 isn't called the A3 avant... Scion does not make a wagon it makes a weird van, but no wagons

    Sincerely,
    The Wagon Mafia:Inner Circle
    P.S. Is your tail a wagon?

    Show cars are lame.

    Yep, my neighbor has one. Stock lowered, silver, I think on 16s or 17s, and a 3.0L V6.

    As a fellow Contour driver (kind of) I don't agree with the sentiments here. The stanced one above is hot, the BTCC cars were hot, and a wagon would be even better. The Merkur cars are garbage - I used to have an XR4Ti for about a week and they are prone to engine fire - which I found out in a week.

    If he had the money for one of those I'm sure he wouldn't be looking at mondeos.

    I'm definitely with Riskant on this one!
    Do you really want a Ford? except for a Sierra/Escort Cosworth or a nice Focus ST or something, I can't really think of any euro Ford I'd want to own...

    My opinion is that is one of the worst looking Fords ever produced, alongside the KA, mk4> escort, galaxy. All hideous.

    Thanks for all the comments, as said if I had 45.000 euros laying around, I'd buy the Sierra RS500 Cosworth in a blink of the eye, however I'm just an 18 year old kid, so that's not going to happen. :P
    As for the Ford Capri, they're really hard to find over here in Holland, the only one I could find had the 2.9 v6 engine of the Scorpio cosworth in it and the rest of the car was shit. I've never been a big fan of the Ford Cortina, so that one's out.

    But, my brother owns a '96 BMW 750iL E38, which I might be able to buy from him, but that's not final yet. So the search goes on.

    That thing looks great except for the rear, the only Contour I like is the wagon.
