Some of you may have seen from the other forum I owned a Cherry Rallye and sold it this January just gone... but the guy managed to crash it within 10 days! Luckily tarmac terror bought it and started putting it all back together and is looking great once again (http://www.306gti6.com/forum/showthread.php?id=159788).



Prior to selling I had an impulse to buy a car one weekend and originally fancied a Peugeot 208 GTI, but as it turned out I found myself sat in a Ford dealer awaiting to test drive a Fiesta ST. Took it for a blast and instantly fell in love with it! Order was placed soon after but turned out to be a 4 month wait! Have to say it was well worth the wait, such a great car!

4 months wasn't long enough to have a reality check and get a refund?

I've heard great things about those cars, supposed to be brilliant and the small hot hatch to get at the moment.

I was looking at those focus ST-3's they looked OK on the outside then when you get in it looks like a power rangers leg. Although they are apparently great to drive.

I know a few people who have these as their everyday cars (their weekend cars are a Lotus btw)  By all accounts they're a cracking drive smile

My company car is a derv Focus and I was actually surprised at how good it is. I can only imagine how well the ST's drive.

Thugpuggin yeah I did but got given a cracking deal so couldn't really say no. 

 

My mum has a Focus ST3 and having driven it I much prefer the Fiesta. The Focus feels quicker but the torque steer and putting the power down is bad. In comparison the Fiesta feels much more raw and fun because you can plant all the power down and throw it around. Only thing is the suspension is very harsh. It returns 35mpg around town and got it to around 45mpg going Wales so can't really moan!

I'm taking my mate to pick up his new molten orange st this weekend! To say he is excited is a understatement.

the Molton orange is the more blaze coloured one isn't it? It's a bit more bearable than the Asbo orange in the earlier shape. My mate has one in that colour. Jesus christ it could piss a wasp off that colour

No Ricky you are thinking of the new focus orange, molten orange is like the old asbo but a bit more tame although in the pictures I've seen it looks more pink.

aren't you in police? or am i confusing you with someone else?

if you are in the police, how about doing a drugs bust at 4am and kicking their door in etc, turning the kids rooms over? always wanted to do that, regardless of authority

how is that £3800 worth of damage though?!
