New to the forum and new to my recently purchased '07 Focus ZX4 ST, Dark Grey exterior, Black interior with Red detail. Bought it with 8,600 miles on it.
Any common issues with these cars? Also, are these very common? I only found two within 50 miles of my hometown in southern PA.
I love it so far and look forward to using this forum for technical advice/general chat. Look for pictures later after a wash/wax.

Welcome to FocusFanatics.
There are a lot of ST owners on this site.
The St's are really nice, so I'm sure you'll be quite happy with yours.
Looking forward to those pics. Glad to have you here.

Welcome! You got the top 'o the line model dude! Do you have the SAP (street appearance package)? Can't wait for those pictures!

I have now owned my Focus for twelve months. I bought mine new. haven't had any mechanical issues and gas milleage is great if you drive modestly. Plently of bang for the buck mods. Do your intake first!
Welcome to FocusFanatics.com!! [thumb]
From what I've seen, the ST's are a solid vehicle, congrats on your new purchase....

Thank you all,
I am not sure if I have the SAP, what does that consist of? There is no "bodykit" or anything like that on my car, has options that I think are standard to the ST, foglights, spoiler, etc. No window tint, if I had to guess I'd say no SAP...
Since the photo I've gotten rid of the plateholder and the dealer stickers.
All stock as far as I know, nice and clean, plan to keep it that way.

Your Focus does not have the SAP(Street Appearance Package). The SAP has different front and rear bumpers.
Nice looking ride though.

Great color on that ST, though I am somewhat biased. I have had no problems on my 2005 ST other than replacing the battery after three years.
Yes, the ST is somewhat rare. As I recall the retail mix of the ST was forecast by Ford to be about 5% of sales. In actuality I think it was less than 2.5%. This is from memory so anyone please correct me if I am wrong. This means that for every 1,000 Focus's sold, only 25 units were STs. In the major metro area where I live I have only seen a handful of STs on the road, less than 10 over 3 years. The Ford dealers did not seem to understand/embrace the ST model so it was difficult for me to even find a demo model to examine. They could not find what I wanted within a five state area so I orderd one new from the factory.

Yes you dont have the sap package. I do! :) Here's what the package looks like.
Rear Bumper and spoiler

Ahh ok. Thanks for the info/pics. Nice, I like the look with and without the SAP.
Extremely happy with the car, came from a 2001 Volvo S60 2.4T, loaded, so I was not sure how I would feel about the interior differences and all that, but so far I like the Focus and I do not have to worry about another expensive check engine light.
And that ratio sounds about right, in my area, within 50 miles of my zip on autotrader, there were 113 Focuses and 2 STs, or ~2%.
