Lovely car and in that lovely blue colour. Like how you didn't paint the calipers red as that is usually the most common choice. The gold is very subtle and reminds me of the Subaru WRX colour scheme.

Hassen,

Thanks for the comment :)

Yes I like not to go with the grain lol and like you said gold is a very subtle colour and goes well with the blue

Hello Tezza,

That is a fantastic car. Im jealous as us focus fans in the colonies (Western Australia) didn't have the options you guys have. Would love the Sat/Nav and climate control. My car has the Mountune MR290 tune and i have added a Pro Alloy boost pipe kit, 2XS racing top pipe,and a elevate boost controller. The cars can be driven sedately or when pushed go's like a cut cat :D :D Lovely car will be interested to see what mods you end up doing.

Thanks Jonny :)

Next on the cards is a re map and intercooler :) and as for the running cost there's not that much difference than the ST170 I put a extra £20 a month on fuel , and I work at a ford dealership so maintenance etc not much of a worry :)

They are expensive to run - Insurance is extortinate if you are under 21 or have points/claims/ convictions etc, tax is band K (£280 a year)

On a long run, if you drive really, really carefully you could see 30-35mpg, "booting" it this could drop to 20mpg, especially a mapped/ tuned one

if you're doing a high(ish) milage and spending £100 a week on fuel- thats £5000 a year - why do you think i run my soot-chucker - i overtake countless impretzas etc that are crawling along trying to save fuel - fine if you can afford it but what is the point if it means you can't "drive" it?

the costs can be a "rude awakening" to some that are not expecting it/ those used to an economical car

Saying that, the prices are coming down and im an old codger with a clean licence & 8 years NCD- Ive been thinking about getting one, (these things have enormous potential) stripping it out/ taking it up to 350Hp/ use it as a "2nd car" - but ive a feeling the licence would not stay so clean! :lol:
