Well, after 2 years with a BMW M140i, I will be returning to an ST.  Just bought a 17 plate ST3.  After lots of hand wringing I have come back to a Ford. I considered an RS but have gone down the ST route again, this will be my third.

 

i will post pics this week when I pick it up.

Lots of questions, here’s some answers..

 

@Matt: Frozen white

@Alb: I did think about a MK 4 but had reservations about its engine.  Ended up with the MK3.  I’m going to put some mountune bits on this one and then see what happens from there.

@Eddie: The M140i was proper rapid but felt like a video game.  It is also very floaty at speed and I wasn’t going to drop the £££ into it to fix the suspension etc on a PCP deal.  I like the way the ST drives and how it feels at speed, so here I am on my third ST.

I had the M140i, the factory tyre choice was Michelin Pilot Super Sports, great in the dry, lethal in the wet after they wore in a bit.  I went PS4 which were much better but the suspension was still floaty AF at speed.

I think that kind of power in a short chassis is asking for trouble.....be kind of fun though....
