It's nice to see another Turbo boy with all the power in the world changing to a proper car.

Good luck mate,

Thanks alot for the replys guys, the focus is a mint and a fast car I love it and will be gutted to get rid as I dont think I will ever find another car that is as swirl free and as tidy as it, but its the wifes car and I only get to clean it and drive it at a weekend if Im not at work lol, she's fell in love with the Type R aswell as other cars but tbh the type r is my favorite aswell so this is why.

So would I mate - regret the day I ever got rid of my ST-3....I'd love to do a swap for yours as I have a Type R with Sat Nav too, but mines got a bit of finance remaining on it that I can't clear at the moment....

Good luck mate, your ST is stunning....

Hate to thread crap, but you can't say it's concourse.

I am heavily involved in the classic car scene, and to say that car is concourse is a bold statement. Concourse means in condition as left factory, and that car is clearly not.

Its just a phrase I used mate, does it matter??? I keep getting all these silly emails telling me what concourse actually means, people just have to much time on there hands to worry about things like what words really mean, at the end of the day you can see what I mean.

Its got every bit of history you could imagine with every receipt "as described in the advert", I have the origional purchace one for dead on 20,000 then the one from when the first owner sold it last year for 17,000 then the one from when I bought it, also have every receipt for all services plus stamps and also every receipt for all mods done, think in totall the add up to 28,000 thats not including labor for all parts fitted!

Bland they are not, i'm talking from experiance to, with out sounding big headed I've owned from 2005 nearly 30 performance cars, some being bland and crap and some being absolute animals, I got to say the focus is one of the best all rounders you could buy, maybe not in standard form but as mine is now, it gets the looks handles superb, evo pace performace (tried against my brothers evo 9 fq320 and posted up on the mlr) and is cheap to insure (425 fully comp for me and the wife im 28 shes 24).
I know now your gonna say why you sellin it then but my explanation is in the above post.

small world shane, I was a member of the rsowners club and I remember your rs, one of the nicest I have seen. I converted over to the type R forum from the rs, I miss the torque but the type R in my opinion is a better all rounder. Hope you find one soon

how come you're selling anyway? i can vouch that shane has owned a few guys from the rsowners forum,haha.

Posts discussing the Focus ST moved to this thread from here .

Please only post in the For Sale and Wanted thread if you are interested in buying the ST or a swap for a CTR.

Thanks.
