Think all the new ones are diesel. The older ones have the v6 petrol in them which would be my first choice.

I'm currently looking to buy a v6 cougar (basically same engine) Test drove one the other day and was really quiet ans smooth.

Driven alot of the new diesel st's and wasn't impressed. Sounded and felt like I was driving a transit! :angry:

Cheers mate appreciate the feedback ye diesels are quite noisey and to find a petrol one is a task in it self

Deffo Go For 3.0 ST220. Late as poss, max options, Performance Blue. Go for the diesel only if you are doing lots of miles.

Hello there. Funny enough i'm also about to buy an ST but the diesel. I have been offered a black 06 estate with 100k on the clock for 5k. I have seen the car and it's nearly perfect but wanted to get some feedback from "you" about any potential problems I should look for?!

Thank you
