Hi everyone
New to this site and looking at purchasing my 1st ST-2 or ST-3. Is they anything i should look out for when viewing these cars.
What prices should i be paying looking at a 2nd had one. Fancy the ST-3 but is it worth the extra cash.
The wife really likes Blue or maybe the red & so do i on the blue not keen on red but im becoming a sucker for the white for some reason.

Looking for a very good example in the Sheffield area.

Way Hay mid life crisis

Hiya and
to the
club

For me the biggest decision between the ST2 and the ST3 was the seats. The ST2 are fabric and (majority) seat three people in the back whereas the ST3 is leather but only seats two in the back.

Have a look around the New Members forums as there are some really useful posts about things to look for when buying an ST.

As for prices, check out the for sale section on here and maybe pistonheads and autotrader to get a good idea of what prices are typical at the moment.

p.s. Have you considered Silver, it's a great colour

think they have reverse sensors also mate. apart from that there is no difference as far as im aware! maybe bluetooth, but would'nt be certain. im sure some of the st3 owners will be along in a while & let you know. as long as your aware of the drink problem they are an brilliant fun car to own. im on my second! bought a bmw after my first
and could'nt wait to get rid of it for another

Hello matey and
along to the club. You've got to get a
one, it's the win colour.

Donna's right, most ST2's are three seaters (as are the ST3's) but mines a bit different, I've got the sculpted cloth rear seats making it a two seater
