So after someone decided that using thier mirrors or indicator was too much work i am now minus one FL st2.
Insurance should come in at about £9k sooo do i get another one or not?

ST Pros:
Looks
Sound
Pace
Comfort

Cons:
Handling - It just felt a bit nose heavy at times especially in sharp bends
Fuel......

Other options are 123d (yes i know...),a4 3.0tdi quatro, or a pre fl and either pocket the cash or sink it into car toys.
Open to new ideas though

Let the debate begin

It's a difficult thing choosing which vehicle.

I love my ST to bits but if it were written off I would probably get a Forester 2.5 turbo as it would suit where I live better. I used to live in Sydney and the ST was fine there, but moving away meant compromises as the roads are rugged.

It all depends on your situation. If you got another ST cheap and already part modded it could be financially viable and certainly fun again, but there are certainly many other fun cars to own. I think in the UK you would be spoilt for choice compared to us in Oz.

the audi 3.0 tdi surprisingly generates a really nice sound especially when a new exhaust has been fitted.

It really is what you're looking for but I wouldn't get another ST, just try something different. The ST is getting to the stage where anyone can buy one and the image isn't that "high end" any more.

I didn't think the ST "image" ever was high end?

It is a Ford after all.

I got mine because I wanted it, despite it being a Ford. Service is rubbish here in Oz and buying one was a risk lol......

As above ...if your 1st thought isnt to replace your ST, then maybe test drive a few others ...you'll soon know if you miss the ST after driving a few other models.

I think about this sometimes if anything happened to my car what would I do.

The answer is always I'd get another Mk 2 ST.
