So finally after ordering in September my dealer rang to say my spirit blue ST2 had arrived. Got my reg number, sorted free insurance out and will pick it up on Saturday am.

I am sooooo excited now. Will post pictures later on Saturday evening as I suspect I will have to go for a long drive!!!

I have seriously thought about it but decided to see how it goes for a few months then ideally get a drive in a mountuned one so I can make a real comparison and decide if it is worth the extra money

I know what you mean. I've had mine about 8 months now and thinking of the upgrade to the MP 215, but would like to see the difference.

Brilliant, enjoy!

I've considered the mountune option as one to do later, this is the fastest car I've ever had so it's enough at the moment! However I might judge the timing to still take advantage of the remaining warranty :)

How did it go then? Was it as good as you remembered from your test drive?

It was far better cause I could give it some serious beans!!!

 

Weather was pretty poor up here this morning so car is now filthy, first day, so probably have to wash it tomorrow!

 

Here's a few pictures I took sorry about poor quality but was getting a little dark by time I stopped to take them.

 

Old and new at dealers this morning

 

 

A few moody sunset stylie pictures

 

 

Then a couple when I got home of the inside/sill plates

I have added my brodit phone holder thought I might have a problem at first due to the LED's above the glovebox but it fits to the side of them no problem, will post pictures tomorrow when daylight.

 

Planned minor mods only;

 

HID's, CREE LED interior lights, de-tango and K&N filter

Those comments are so true, quite and refined around town in traffic and raw energy when you put your foot down on twist country roads
