Hi guys

When I traded in my Rx-8 some 3 weeks ago, there was I must admit a small doubt in my mind as to whether I'd done the right thing, having previously owned an ST170, I was somewhat apprehensive for trading in my Rex for the ST. Well some 3 weeks later any doubts are gone, wow what a car I've bought. I love the low down torque, and the whole package, it seems a different beast alltogether from the 170, and all this from a standard car. I've heard rave reviews regarding remapping, and hopefully will go down that route in the future. I can't imagine what it's like to experience a stage 1 bluefin or the like to drive, as my car is standard, to say I'm happy in my decision to buy an St would be a huge understatement.

A very happy new owner,

Nige

Same here, great to know your loving your car!! I bought a similar
about the same time and I literally can't stop smiling everywhere I go, still!

The ST looks stunning just parked up, and even more stunning to drive!

grin firmly on your face.


Just wait till you start modding her, you'll be grinning like a Cheshire Cat then!!

Should be locked up trying to pull tricks like that!

Thanks for the advise though.

I've now owned my ST2 for 12 weeks and i love it more and more each day! I've never washed something so much in all my life
the noise is awesome, i could'nt recommend the 260bhp mountune package more.

Get the mods done and it`ll make you grin even more!


Dont think I`d get away with any mods with the missus just aswell they were on the car when I got it!

Glad your enjoying it, and a great choice on colour

If you ever want taking out in a 322bhp st drop me a inbox message mate, just to see what the modding bug can do

Good to hear that as I was seriously considering an RX8 at one point but ended up with the ST

Really liked the car but comming from a modified Scooby it felt it was missing something - then I got Mountuned at the weekend and a set of eibachs put on - WOW!! thats more like what the car is supposed to be like.

Down side is my average mpg is now well under 20 since fitting
