Buying Focus ST

OK think i'm going to go and get a Focus ST tommorow, its a 56 plate ST-3 with all the extras in Orange, from a main dealer with 9000 miles, 12.5k

Anyone know much about these cars and any tips or info owning or purchasing?

Thx bros!

get it remapped when you get it, not that fast std for what they are. they do handle pretty nicely though good choice. only 9000miles too. very low milage for its year.

Yeah had the remap on the cards for sure! Love the noise it makes and seems a solid car.

Worth getting extended Ford warranty do you think? Comes with 3 months standard.. not sure if to extend by a year or two?

Surely a Ford forum would be a better place to ask about Fords?

+1, there is an ST that my boss's mate has, asked him the other week what he's done to his, Miltek Turbo Back Exhaust, Green Induction kit, Forge Intercooler, Bilstein supsension setup and a Remap. Apparently pulling 310bhp.
