Hi All

Finally find the new forum, used to be nuster100 on the old forum.

Looking forward to doing a few driving days this year now I'm back in Yeovil

Good choice!

ST1, 2 or 3?
Any mods?

Still got mine.

It will be my 2nd Focus ST so looking forward to it, certainly don't expect a FWD car to be able to corner like they can!

We had a 'sort of' ST for several years and it was one of the best cars we've had.
I say 'sort of' because it had the suspension and running gear of the ST but a diesel engine.
The car, as far as I am aware, was only ever produced for the Spanish market and served us very well indeed; aside from eating tyres it never let us down, not even a light bulb.

I wish car makers would do the opposite (ST engine, but small wheels, softer suspension etc).

Looks 8-) - is that a Moondust Silver ST3?

What's with the feint ST side stripes?

Yes it is, I really like the faint stripes. Like the fact that its a 5-door as my old ST was 3 door.

Already talking to a friend who works for ford to prep it for Mountune 260 kit!!!

The worst I've come across is my daughters R53 Cooper S with sports plus suspension and runflat tyres on 17 inch wheels. It had just as well be a go cart the suspensions so hard. Too hard to take full advantage of on the fast section of the B3081 at the top of Zig Zag Hill. :cry:
