new car

traded for the ST and cleared finance in exchange :)

so the sportka cost me £175 (tax) :P

no pics but a spec:

1.6 8v 94bhp
12500 miles
full leather
AC
Power Steering
front and rear fogs
leccy windows and mirrors
tinted rear windows
16" alloys
CD player

first impressions:

obviously coming from a 2.5t Focus ST-2 it is not quick, its nippy :)

but its damn good to drive! well fun :)

i'll get pics up asap!

Sell this.

Save 5k.

Buy a VAG TDI engined beast. Either Golf or Passat or Scoda. GTTDI spec it, and have proper power and torque, while also having econemy and a decent sized car. Would probably be better than that Focus you had too :P

Sorry but I have to post this one.



Actually does say the Sportka is good compared to a french car :o

I will also add the VTS has better suspension, steering ansd more power (they learnt from the GT) so don't be getting any ideas.

Dare I say I it is actually an amazing car from ford which I never really noticed until you bought one. :)

dave: cheers mate its sea grey :hmm: nice colour, wierd name! and its nippy, short gearing helps it move, corners are fun :D

and percy: :doh:

i wasn't going to compare this to anything, the chassis could handle vts power easy in the ka, its a good car :)

the c2 gt in that vid looks all over the place :P

happypaul: i'll look into it when i sell this :) i just said focus sized car, not a focus :P

Exactly, it was actually a compliment. I would prefer the KA over the GT, the VTS has too much power to do a fair comparison on the other hand.

Shame you won't be keeping it in many ways.

We all know what engine can be dropped into one of these to make it silly! :halo: Turbo y0! :lol:

They are one of the better Ford's of recent years in my book, not only do they do their job as a mini, but they have good performance.

Pics please.
