Hi guys,

Just joined up and thought I would show off my 320 BHP ST monster.

When I bought it I was determined to keep it standard... That idea did not last long...

Firstly alloy heater knobs...

Then Eibachs...

Posted Image

Carbon RS Spoiler, Wing Mirror covers and Bonnet lip...

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Mongoose Exhaust...

Posted Image

Posted Image

Then along came Clarence...


Posted Image

Collin's DV fitted... because I'm an Essex boy... (Well I was born there!). Love the Psssshhhht!

Posted Image

Full hunter allignment done by the guys at Revolution, after the Eibachs had been fitted for a few weeks, great guys and could feel the difference. Got me thinking about new alloys too...

Posted Image

Posted Image

To this...

Posted Image

Then a Mongoose downpipe and 100 cell Cat. Flew on and lined up very well.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Then some Dotz Exile 19"x8.5" custom powdercoated by Ray at Prestige who I was put in to contact by John-ST3. Wanted something different. Saw a car in AutoExpress which had similar wheels... so the hunt began. Struck a deal and had them sent along with some Falken 452's to Ray. So happy with the wheels, tyres look a little stretched... will get 235's next time.

Posted Image

Decided that the RS Carbon spoiler was a little OTT for my Car... Still love it but it needed to go... plus needed some funds.

Powdercoated front callipers... Courtesy of John-ST3 and Ray at Prestige again.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

GGR CAIS - A bargain... little battered, but works ace. Noticed an increase in power and noise immediatly.

Posted Image

Carbon and Silver DMB Calliper Decals and Wheel Centre Caps. Nice.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Code:Red Top Pipe and GGR CAIS Carbon Wrapped white... my knuckles have just about healed after fitting that bad boy!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Then a small mod was required after this arrived...

Posted Image (Jacob 26/05/12)

3 door ST and Baby seats... no bother! Plus the boot is massive enough to swallow the pram and all the garb needed for a bairn!

Radtec Intercooler

Posted Image

But had a few issues with this... namely one of the brackets was welded on about a half inch too far in, so after the car was stripped ready for fitting, it was offered up... no chance this was going on. Que a stroppy call to Pumabuild by myself... To be quite honest myself and the mechanic (You know who you are) were less than impressed with the response, but thats another story (Pumabuild have kind of sorted it out...). Thankfully Radtec themselves managed to send a replacement ASAP (Great bunch of friendly guys! and they appologised... not like some people). Just to top the day off... grazed an alloy on a kerb (Back to Ray's soon for a refurb... it's not that bad but I know it's there). Thankfully the mechanic... who shall remain nameless... managed to squeeze me in for a very last minute appointment.

Posted Image

Posted Image

The next day myself and a few other NE members headed in convoy down to Collin's Performance in Congleton.
The guys at Collin's were superb! Grand tour of the whole facility, shown the RR and secret development room... oooh... CP 340...

So Stage 2 was loaded on and away I went for a passenger test drive. Oh my god... I never knew my car would move so fast! Very impressed.

Whilst there I decided I fancied the CP sunstrip and CP320 decal. But alas the colour I chose was not in stock... so had the base layer fitted and the boot badge.

What an interesting drive home we all had! Plenty of smiles all round. Met some other members from around the UK... Byron - Was good meeting you fella. Saw some amazing cars too. Several RS's and ST's.

Posted Image

Then a few tarty bits... ST mats from the GB on here...

Posted Image

Posted Image

Rallyflapz in red


Posted Image

Completed the CP sunstrip... I know its not quite in the middle... but I made a boo boo! Replaced the boot badge to match the sunstrip too.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Full Samco hoses... Boost, Coolant and Heater, and re-wrap of the CAIS

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Powder coated engine mount... Yup... Ray again!

Posted Image

Posted Image

So now my ST looks like this... after an 8hr detail... missed most of the damned polish though!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Next on the list is...

Custom Widemouth Grill - In progress
Custom painted engine plastics - In progress
RS Bonnet
Panther Black Roof
Carbon Fibre Door Pillers
RS Parts Diffuser

Then maybe B12s...

I would like to take this oppertunity to thank John-ST3 for all his work on my car. Everytime he works on my car he ends up with a new burn, missing screwdrivers and a few new swear words! If anyone in the NE needs work doing... drop John a PM... He knows his way around and ST... and an RS... also the wives Nissan Note too! (Despite what one of the sponsers said on here...)

Any comment welcomed guys.

I have now decided I need to sell the beast as childcare etc etc is going to cost a fortune. So looking for around £15k as is or I may return to standard and sell for around £12k. Gutted as I have only just finished it!! If you are interested or know anyone who is looking for an ST that will give a standard RS a run for its money... drop me a PM or text/call 07920 224625.

19x8.5” Dotz Exile Alloy Wheels – Custom Powder Coated
DMB Centre Caps
Locking Wheel Nuts
Powder coated Callipers

I'm considering putting it back to standard and selling it on. Then I can sell the mods seperatly... Might sell a bit easier that way.

the car looks great and from a previous white car owner, it appears cleaner for longer than other colours. nice list of mods done to it too. to make some money back your best bet is to get it back to standard. i sold my previous Leon Cupra with £2.5k of mods on the car for £2.3k. Had I removed the mods I would have made another £700 easily.

I personally prefer a modified car but for some reason most people prefer to start their own mods.

Yeah... I have decided to split unless someone buys it within the next month! Should make about £2k back on mods... car should sell for £12k hopefully.

Don't tell her... or buy it in "wife" pounds... i.e. £10 real pounds = £5 wife pounds.

I wish, she's way too sharp for that ruse, and i think she would notice the difference in the cars.
She turns a blind eye to some mods i do but her eyes roll like a barrel on a slide when she spots the bigger ones.

Beautiful car I would have it but the 5 thousand pound insurance price makes me say no as well as a lack of funds

£500 thats cheap. I'm 36 with 15 yrs of NVB and mines a TDCI at i pay about the same as you and mines nowhere near as modified as yours. I suppose it may be to do with where you live to but t £500 thats very good. Hope you make your money back. Try posting the bits on the Focus ST Owners forum and put them on here too. Good Luck
