Yah the mk3 zetec s does look very sporty but shame the options level is very low, I was hoping they would do the same as with the fiesta and give the titanium the body kit but maybe that will happen next year as from what ford car build app shows u can have front park sensor on zetec s now.

Just spotted a 2012 ST in navy blue in Arklow Co.Wicklow yesterday,
I must say it didnt stand out much, it was the rear badge that caught my eye, and in the current climate id prefer a 1.6t with mountune pack.

I'd say get an old ST, they're much better cars. You could get 350bhp out of an older ST for £10k total. The new range of Ford's look terrible, Fiesta and Focus alike.

Has anyone driven the new ST. Once you have if its performance you are after you'll be trading your mk2's in a heartbeat. I cant afford to buy one but would in a flash if I could. Ive only driven one as I work for a dealer and they really are amazing but you are right they dont have the aggresive looks of the old one.

My old st was mountuned and was good to drive but just costs to much to run and I found that I couldn't have fun anymore coz all my fuel was for work.
