Jesus put me on a podium why dont ya
Theres a bigger boot compartment in the focus hatch than the focus saloon,
The overall seating area is identical in both saloon and hatch,
The ST and RS models dont have a centre seat belt making them 4 seater cars,
But thankfully in this case mine has the middle seat belt and sufficent space for three child seats in the back.
I dont understand people whom go for a 7 seater SUV because they have two kids its like they dont trust themselves to be more careful next time they have S3x, better get a huge car encase we end up filling it.
Costs way more to run it aswell as trying to park it.
Im happy with my focus,
Two seats definitly fit in the back and three is most definitly not a problem,
Granted spme buggy frames are big but thankfully the baby elegance frame fits snugly in the boot.
This is not a dig at anyone,
The estate car in this thread is as said a beautiful motor but i prefer to keep my family affairs and travel arrangements off the forum.
Each to there own is the point im trying to make,
Everyone can clearly see the focus has 3 seats in the back without bringing me or my family in to it.
My Focus ST had 3 belts in the back... It was an ST2. The ST3 with the leather only had 2 rear belts.
I would of loved another ST225 but didn't have the budget... and SWMBO would of strung me up by the knackers...
On another note my new plates arrived today along with my new boot badge. Will hopefully get fitted tomorrow.
Looks sweet mate,
Saw some nice ford racing centre console clocks on ebay straight swap clock as in time display clock,
A pioneer double din would look rote at home up front perhaps 15" flip down for rear passengers
I like the future mods...a lot! And looking at your previous track record, I have no doubt this will be another wicked motor. My favourite was your Mondeo Titanium X once you were done with it as it was a practical and fun car which had the looks to match.
Last week I was in Ruthin, Wales and saw a saloon ST220. I took the time to educate all the guys on how rare that car was but would still not attract the wrong type of attention. Cherry on top was that there was a child seat at the back which showed that you don't need to get rid of the fun car when having a family
Exactly why I sought out an estate. Wife is due our second child in May. Took a bit of finding and I did look at a couple of hatchbacks... But they were all rough bar the final one!!
