Hi Alec, welcome to the club!  :)

 

Great choice on the ST, I owned a 2008 ST3 one for a couple of years and loved it.

In terms of mods there's loads you can do it just depends on how much you want to spend. A great cheap mod is to get the exhaust de-resonated. This removes the smaller silence on the back box and makes it sound like an aftermarket cat back (pops and bangs more often plus generally a bit deeper) for a sensible price. Most exhaust specialists will do it for between £40 and £80. Also, they respond really well to remaps. I had a bluefin on mine and the difference it makes in mind blowing. Make sure you save up for an RS clutch though as the extra torque can make the clutch slip. DMB overlays for the badges are always a nice cheap mod too!

 

Give me a shout if you need any other tips I'm quite clued up on ST's!

 

 

 

Looks very nice and tidy.

 

I was looking at the bluefin as a future mod as you gain around an extra 60BHP ish without any mod upgrades which is well worth the money.  May look at the exhaust silencer, will see how it sounds when ive driven it for a few weeks! Probably will want it sounding louder haha.

 

Ive heard about the clutches, how much is an RS one roughly including fitting?

I'm a little bit jealous in all honesty. I had a 30 minute go on one and loved every moment of it!

 

I'd love a biff on an RS 500 but I might be waiting a long time before that happens. :P

 

Yeah would love a test drive on an RS.. i can Imagen how different it would feel too!

 

May have to source one out just to test drive it haha!

I must agree, the bilberry wheel cleaner is a great product..

 

If you jet wash, you wont need to even touch the wheels, Simply spray on.. allow to work and jet wash off.

It does help sealing the wheels after to prevent as much brake dust build up and easier next time around.
