I have a deep impact blue one and i've never washed a car so much in my life :d

TBH with such a striking looking car keeping it clean is the least I can do.

(If only the flamin' seagulls would sod off ;) )

'Active City Stop' kicks in when you select neutral and apply the handbrake.

The engine cuts and a green A comes up on the dash screen.

Press the clutch and the engine restarts.

If the car power supply is taxed (aircon full blast or heated screens are on etc) then it will not kick in and the A will be greyed out on the dash.

If ACS is on and the car detects a power drop then the engine will restart itself without you touching anything.

You get a manual ACS deactivation button near the gearstick as well.

A nice touch is that if you stall by accident just push the clutch pedal down and the car will restart without having to press the start/stop button.

Same as mine but I opted for Nav to, must say harder to keep clean than I had hoped though!

Looks absolutely stunning.

Thanks very much Pal!

Also does the st3 come standard with the rear tinted windows?

No you will need to select privacy glass or ST Style Pack which give you the 19" wheels and Privacy Glass.
