check out the guides on the top of the page...main thing i think you should look into is insurance for an st-3 as iv seen stupid quotes for people under 21

Hello David welcome to the club.

Not really anything major to look for, some 07 cars do suffer from clutch slip in higher gears, clutches are about £900 fitted, so make sure you have a proper test drive. Most other faults should have been done under recall at service time.

Best advice if you are serious about buying is join the club for £10 and spend a while looking at all the info, you may even pick up a club members car in the for sale section.

In my oppinion there is nothing better for track day fun, back road blasts and long motorway miles than a ST !!

Its only my opppinion, but the ST can feel very GT like on a loooooong motorway cruise !! i drive from Germany to the North of England, quite often and i always feels really good in the drivers chair (no aches or pains from sitting too long) although the high driving posistion has been talked about ALOT, i actually like that too as i find it gives me a good driving posistion.

Put it simply ........ ST's are GREAT !!!
