The ST170

Came onto the Ford scene with a bang and ford overhyped them as they always do, if the truth be known the ST170 was a tester for the faster Focus RS , but saying that the ST170 does have some top features and if your lucky enough to own a model that has both the Custom & Comfort options then you will be a happy bunny,  faults that are regular on these are the IMRC  & Lambda sensors and should you be unlucky enough to own one in need of a clutch then expect a bill in the region of £800 or more due to the dual mass flywheel used, these are a lively car that handle well and love to be driven hard to open up those flaps on the inlet manifold and let the car race in high revs, in low revs it will drive like any other focus, some downside's are the high insurance grouping and fuel economy which can leave your wallet/purse empty, but driven with sense and using the 6 speed gearbox you can stretch the miles,  the 17" wheels are very simular to the OZ Superturismo's and those 15" versions used on the Fiesta Zetec S but focus st170 run 215 45 17 tyres does offer some comfort over the bumps, These are a affordable classic and in time like all fords the value will rise and will make a sound investment for the future as all sporty fords do, 

Comfort Pack;  Climate control style digital air conditioning, quick clear windscreen along with headlamp washers.

Custom pack: Leather heated recaro seats, Audiophile 9006 stereo system with boot installed sub woofer & metalic paint along with the xenon headlamps

Rarer factory options: Electric sunroof a very rare option indeed as well as rear parking sensors, rear spoiler & sat nav system

some cars had everything and I was lucky enough to find one with all the above spec and now takes pride of place on my driveway,
