After about three years of dreaming of owning a Focus ST I finally got one yesterday thanks to my amazing hubby, best christmas pressie ever. Wasn't even planning on buying one, just popped into a garage for a look when we were out shopping on Friday. I love it. My last car was a Mitsubishi Shogun Sport Warrior, the one before that was a Mitsubishi Shogun SWB 3.5 V6 GDI (I did love this car but had to get rid of it as it wasn't running right!) and the one before that was a Mitsubishi Shogun SWB 2.8TD. So the Focus ST is very different to what I've been driving for the past 6 years!! Hubby's still driving around in his 8 year old Jeep Cherokee but I've promised that he can get a new jeep next year as I'll be keeping my car for a while! I got a 2007 ST-2 in performance Blue 17000 miles on the clock. We did look at a 2006 ST-3 with 26000 miles on the clock which was slightly cheaper but all the alloys had been damaged and I didn't like the quality of the leather seats, they did offer to fix the alloys but I preferred the seats in the ST-2. So all in all I am a very very happy bunny, can't wait for the better weather to come in though, although maybe that is wishfull thinking living in Scotland!
