  1. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Well people I can report 26.5 and climbing. Bit of thrashing here n there. Just as an ST should be treated. Definitely the best car I have ever driven and so much fun to play with :) Happy ST'ing
  2. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Lol... So I keep getting told... Aha
  3. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Yeah it wasn't planned. Although looking at the facts n figures I probably am looking at 1000-1200 miles a month.... Hmmm just gotta let the petrol bed in. Need to test drive a diesel and see what the power difference really is and th sound in the cabin :)
  4. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Hey Alex, (And anyone else wishing to answer), how many miles have u done so far, how have u been driving the car and what mpg are you pulling? I've done 500miles in first week and stringing at only 24mpg. Mix of motorway, country, town, pretty much every driving style. Not driving it too hard just normal? Really concerned fuel is gonna cost me too much and really considering a change to the diesel already. Car is awesome though, looks great, drives great and the tech is next to none.... :) Hope people can help.
  5. Focus St Long Waiting Times - Anyone Else Got This?

    Ordered 3rd august, given 10-12 weeks to delivery... Pick up tomorrow. So near enough 14 weeks.... I did hear the Diesel engine was looking at 5 month wait times due to the engine demand.... Good luck with the wait. :)

  10. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Seeing yrs Alex is making my wait unbearable... Build pushed back to 29th now... 1 week till build then who knows how long till delivery.... Car looks great thought, can't wait for mine to turn up now.... :) Enjoy it Friday :)
  11. Dash Cam

    Does having the dash cams reduced anyone's insurance premiums, I'm considering one with my ST?
  12. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Hey, I had a build date of 16th October, but now been told of a production date of 29th October... I assume build and production mean same thing.... Then I'm guessing at least 2 weeks till it's at dealership..... Few year ago when I ordered by fiesta zetec s I remember the darker telling me he knew it was in the uk..... But didn't know where or when it would arrive. Literally a case of a transport turns up every tues we'd thus at 10am etc, and it might be in the back of it... Lol
  13. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

  16. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    My previous well known African animal with a long trunk insurer, no issues insuring mine for less than £350 and I'm 25 :) only have a compulsory excess of £100 for every named driver :) Try the sailor insurer as well...
  17. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    I'm hoping my wait stays at 3 months.... Ordered 3rd august estimated build 16/10 delivery supposedly 2 weeks later. :/
  18. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    My apologies yr right.... :)
  19. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Indeed they are, but u can optionally choose them with the st2 but also upgrade to the 19inch silvers. :)
  20. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Just down loaded the evbrochure for the rs... I want one... But by time added options £31450 :/ yeah can't afford it... Shame I'll have to stick to my 2L ST-3 and the 70mph speed limit ;)
  21. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Hi Jon, I looked at getting the st2 instead of 3 but by the time I added everything on I wanted that the st3 had as standard tbh the price was almost the same. And also the st2's seats really put me off. But then if us aren't bothered by auto wipers the 8inch touch screen navigation etc... Then I guess u probably can save some money. The stealth grey does look good in the real world but only with grey or black wheels. The 19inch silvers I don't think go with it..... But as I said it's what u want of course. You can also montune the diesel up too... I've heard there is a kit or is one coming???..., 220bhp. Keep it a secret from the wife though ;)
  22. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    Aha. Very true, find myself every day checking autotrader for any new listings that might have that slightly different angle of a picture. R well... 6-8 weeks n I'll hopefully have it for real :)
  23. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

  24. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

Ordered 3rd august, just got build date 16th October.... Delivery estimated beginning November....... I've exhausted all the youtube videos of all focus sts.... I WANT MINE NOW. To excited... Anyways Welcome
  25. Snug Sports Bucket Seats

    Evening all As some know I have the focus st3 on order... I'm quite a broad guy and when I test drove the car at first I noticed how snug the recaro seats were. Within 5 mins however I'd forgot about it until I went round a corner and felt the seats hug me. My question is... In people's experience, over time seats and materials soften, how much does this actually occur and how long has/does it take? Will such seats get less snug and hugging? Cheers
