The conversion would cost around 800 pounds and save you over 3000 pounds within two years mate.
Even the dash pod can be fittex to the tdci and you can remap a 1.8tdci bullet proof engine to 148bhp while still getting over 40mpg.
Just my opinion though.

I would get rid of the Audi. Next time you see the bonnet up on the motorway 9 times out of 10 the car is from the VW group of companies. As to the Focus ST, maybe look for one with less problems, the one you are looking at does sound like it's had a hard life.

However the ST225 is a "gutsy brute" with 20mpg or less unless you drive like my gran -if you drive like my gran you will probably be overtaken by people with slower, less powerful cars - the insurance is not going to be cheap - especially if you are young (young = under 25) - so if you can't afford to insure/ run it - don't buy it - you would be amazed the amount of people crawling about at low speeds in fast cars trying to get a good MPG - thats very sad and defeats the point of these cars (for me anyway) perhaps they did not know what they were taking on or they changed jobs/ less money/ further to travel etc
From another point of view it is "the real thing" it is an actual ST and not a diesel Focus dressed to look like one (basically, a fake) that has half the power and sounds like a tractor when you start it up - its a bit like a modern day kit car - like a 911 turbo thats actually a classic vw beetle underneath - and sounds/ performs like a vw beetle
It all depends what you want from a car and what your needs are - you may be better off with the Audi tdi OR the ST (if you can afford to run/ insure it)
