newbie here so be gentle! 🤣
just wondered if anyone else has the following accessories
- rear window air vents. Perrin Performance make them for the hatch but can’t find estate ones anywhere.
- opinions on air intake system please
- US style front grille (minus licence plate border)...
I've looked through the other posts and can see bits of information throughout but I wanted to double check and list the differences of the estate vs hatch here in one place. Mainly it's performance pack but what's actually missing from estate vs hatch?
Iv been looking for some stiffer anti roll bars for a 2015 estate.. I cant seem to find any anywhere.
Does anyone know how different the suspension setup is on the estate from the hatch? I know the shocks are slanted but apart from that i'm not sure.
For reference this is the kit i'm...
New member here :cheers: just joined as I'm after getting a 67 or 18 plate ST3 estate (petrol). I'm after a black or blue one and can see they're pretty rare beasts.
I've been running poverty spec cars for the past 10 or so years so it'll be nice to get back to something decent...
Last service for the car picked up that the front pads were down to about 30% so looking to change them before the next service rather than being forced to pay dealer prices.
However Im not sure whether to go for OEM replacements or an alternative such as EBC. What I should everyone else...
I have known about this invaluable forum for some time and finally joined up yesterday. I've owned an ST170 since 2003 but finally it's time to find a replacement. I had a test drive in an ST3 yesterday and my haven't things moved on!
I'm 99% sure I'm going to go for a Tangerine Scream...
This guide is for the face-lift estate version of the MK3 but I imaging the fastenings are identical on the inside for the preface-lift.
(apologies for dog hair)
1. Open boot and unscrew the flap panel allowing access into the area behind the lights
2. Take out the retractable boot cover by...
I didn't realise ordering a boot liner could be so complex! I've managed to figure out that if you have an estate after 2011 you have the choice of a few genuine boot liners, in particular the simple rubber/anti slip type to transport a dog in the boot is what I'm after. The differences seem to...
So, lets try again. Lets talk about MK1 Focus ST170, the dad of Focus ST´s and how it all started from a slightly hot hot hatch and went up from there.
Here are some facts about ST170 for people who are not so familiar with it (taken from Wikipedia):
The ST170 (codename Piranha), which was...
Spotted you waiting at the lights to go over the flyover into Poole at Hunger Hill roundabout (near Asda/Animal HQ/RNLI).
Was on Monday at about 12:50, reg began PL15 (if I remember right!).
Appeared to have some form of blue inlays and possibly some Volk or Rota Grid alloys in black...sounded...
After waiting FAR TOO LONG for it to arrive, it landed yesterday.
ST3 Diesel estate, in Deep Impact Blue with privacy glass, door protectors and heated steering wheel.
I had the option for 19's (part of the pack, albeit ST3 has most of it anyway!) but prefer the dished 18's which look fatter...
Hey all! Im new here and just joined the site to see if anyone can help me! I have a Focus Estate 05 (AKA the mk2) Now I am doing up a estate and need to know, can I put the hatch back rear ST bumper on the estate, from the looks of things the bumpers look the same but I might be being really...
What is the stock size for rarb on an Estate prefacelift?
Ordered some Powerflex bushing for mine and assumed that it was 22 mm sins there was no other option at that point. But mine is 18 mm??
Was it an option on the estate to go for a larger rarb?
I have a 2012 ST estate and seem to be getting a lot of dust in the boot. I think there should be a part on top of the bumper where I have marked in the pic I have attached. There are holes as though something shoukd be attached. Could someone with an estate confirm what should be there.
So - as said on the newbie section - I don't actually own an ST yet; but next year I may be looking to replace my Volvo 850R with another fast estate; and the ST estate is on the list.
Which one do I get?
I've got the Volvo running around 310bhp, so want something that either comes out of the...
Some people need to be punched in the face!!!
Parked my ST-3 estate at footy last night and when I came back to it to go home, I noticed my break light casing has been smashed!!!!
No note left on my car or anything!!
What is the point!!! FUMING!!!!! :Guns: :rant:
Phoned Ford today to get it...
Hoping you can help me. I currently own an ST3 Mk3 Estate. I absolute love the look of the exhaust but the noise outside the cabin isn't special. I would love a deeper more muscley sound but I don't want to change the look of the exhaust.
Any ideas as to what's best?
Just saying hello with a view to sharing the excitement of my new purchase. Today I signed my life away on a ST3 estate in spirit blue. Never owned a car like it, so super excited to be taking delivery on Tuesday.
It was registered Nov 2012 but has only 6,000 on the clock so seemed...
