Hi all,

My first post.

I have just picked up my first ST which is a 2017 ST3 in stealth black.

I am over the moon with it. My wife thinks Im having a mid life crisis as I have gone from an Audi A6 Avant to the Ford. Personally I am very happy as I love the way it drives. The Ford dealership in Huddersfield thought I was nuts because I asked them to take the black wheels off the car and put the silver wheels on instead. Personal preference, I just felt I liked the silver wheels more.

Anyhow I thought Id introduce myself.

 Hi Shaun, welcome!

 

  I agree with you re. the wheels... alloys should be silver and shiny! Any pics of the car?

Everyone to his own in the wheels debate, just had mine re powder coated in gunmetal with a metallic fleck thru to add a bit sparkle. I'd prefer the natural alloy against a black car myself, welcome along..........

Thats the car, not the best photo ever taken.

Absolutely, each to their own wheels wise and colours. Its all good, whatever you go for. Keeping the black wheels off just kept my mrs from yelling mid life crisis just a little less ha.

I was thinking of maybe doing the Mountune Stage 1. Is that a worthwhile endeavour? I can get ford to carry this out for me. Although its only a 25 bhp difference I have read that it makes a little bit more of a positive difference when it comes to MPG.

Welcome to the club Shaun :)

I had silver wheels on my ST but black on the RS and I must say that the black ones look much better.

Silver wheels are soo standard and boring looking, dark wheels are much more moody and motorsport, every euro hatch has silver wheels, I personally cant stand them just too ordinary.
