My car was the topic of conversation at work yesterday and I was asked:

"What would you drive if the ST was never made?"

It got me thinking to be honest. I wasn't thinking if "money was no object etc" ... I was thinking realistically. Based on my circumstances at present, I would probably be in either of these (not brand new, I am not that rich!!). The reason I don't own either is the fact I love my ST and don't want to change it!

Well before we got the
we said we wanted either a Megane turbo or the Clio 197. It was just the case of what came up for sale first and luckily it was the
as we love this car and are so glad we didn't get one of the others. Loving that Audi by the way very nice!

I've just started looking for the ST replacement for if/when I sell it next year, and I keep changing between performance cars and cruisers/comfort so I've been looking at the following:

Audi S4 Cabriolet
Audi RS4 Avant
BMW M3 E46
BMW 535D Touring
BMW 335D/i Coupe
Megane Sport RS
VXR8 Bathurst as above

Just depends what mood I am in after Xmas, although we are also buying a 320d Touring for the Mrs so that will also affect the decision as I then wouldn't need another estate.

I love my ST but don't get to use it in anger, so the idea of a fast luxo barge with all the toys is very appealing.

at people picking used cars with the same purchase costs and treble the running costs.

Being 23 when I bought it I looked at another CTR, Golf GTI or used 350Z. The group 20 cars weren't financially viable.

For me it was a toss up between my head and my heart.

Head - Audi A3 170ps TDI, economical for the motorway miles I do and as quick as my ST170 if not quicker.

Heart - Focus ST Mountune, not in the slightest bit economical, fast as you like and fun in spades.

As you may have noticed I went for the heart option. Haven't looked back

Hi Guy's. I did look at a Golf R32. Bit too expensive for me so on the way through Cardiff I saw the
of my dreams a Diamond White 57 plate. They sold it before I got the cash,so I got the Black 1 instead. I love it.
