well as some of you know .. i have got myself an st170 :) a reliable daily was needed while i save for my next toy but i had to have something fun and the st170 seemed the best option. 90k, 3 previous owners. 12months MOT and 6months TAX, recent full service replacing EVERYTHING, new brakes all round, clutch and DMF done only a few thousand miles ago, K&N panel filter and cat-back (soon to be removed/replaced). nothing special but im liking it so far. hope you can appreciate the reasons for purchase and dont slate me for down grading from cvh turbo power :(

Number plates will be going plain because some clot thought these were cool :doh:
Image

As stated the skyline backbox will be going asap lol

The whole interior is spanking ! i cant tell you how clean it is !
Image

Well i hope you like it :thumbsup: i will get some better pics when the weather stops being a penis :halo:

thank you :) .. erm lol well its servere lack of torque compared to the RS is a bit of a shock but the speedo moves at a fairly impressive rate :thumbsup: 6 gears and power steering are going to take time to get used to lol the exhaust adds 400bhp so pipe down :teehheee: ( just realised the punn there and it wasnt intended i swear ) thank you though and i look forward to progress too. there is only literally a few things i plan to do to her :thumbsup:

thanks babe ;) it is the only colour i was going to have one in lol i hate (no offence to people with them) black cars because they show every ding/dent/scratch and dirt so badly :(, silver is boring in a sence that everyone has a silver car nowadays and the blue looks pony IMHO. and that other light blue rare colour is more gash than lexus lights !!!!! :lol:

bellend :lol: ... really ? i just think its too big and jap and boy racery lol i like outward rolled exhausts on fords lol or standard for this as its all original :thumbsup: zorst, dmb gel overlays for the ford badges, wheel respray in silver again to be 100% fresh, ideally want to find the sub that comes as an option on the st170 and fit it and possible light window tints all round :halo: also the number plates have been ordered tonight.. completely plain ones :) none of this tell people its a ford twice at each end with pictures and borders bullshit lol the front one is going to be slightly smaller too ;)

thanks buddy :thumbsup: erm well im sure its very good but its so wallowy (is that a word ? ) and odd compared to the rs because that was solid ! no body roll no suspension at all really lol and the power steering ... well i hate power steering tbh so i would say i cant feel the road as well, less feedback etc .. im just not used to it yet :halo:
