Is a Ford Mondeo ST220 a good investment?

I run a 2004 Ford Mondeo Ghia X 130 diesel currently and like the spec, reliability and comfort on long distances. Is the ST220 a practical buy to replace this and have a bit more fun in? I do about 4000 miles a year. I think prices are at the bottom and won’t go much lower but would value your view please on whether a buy now is ‘sensible’, what to look for mechanically and what values may do.

I think the biggest challenge will be finding a good example - there aren't many left and there are quite a few rough ones about. If you can find a tidy Ford Mondeo ST220 that's clearly been loved, it'll certainly be a bit more fun than your Mondeo Ghia X (provided you can put up with the harsher ride quality). A full service history is a good sign, as is premium tyres and tidy bodywork. An ST220 will never be a serious investment but, find a good one at the right price, and you shouldn't lose money.
