Another newbie here!

Have had my ST170 for a couple of months now and have already started doing some mods on it and plans for a few more as well as some tidying up of it.

I have one question for you lot though...



what's with the "euro" look, what exactly are you aiming for? Please explain it to me.

Adam

The "Euro look", basically seems to be to acquire as many EDM stock parts, like bumpers, wings, badges, interior bits, wheels, whatever can be had. Hell, I've seen an SVT(on Here, nice one) re-badged as an ST170. I, for one, have a Euro "ST" badge, but in My freak-year Focus, that's all I can do.

As for the ZX question, the ZX3 is the 2 door hatch, whereas the ZX5 is the 4 door hatch. I still don't get why the hatch itself would be considered a door....

Ah right is there a lot of difference between the SVT and the ST170?
Means I have a zx3 then and it's got all the extras with the digital aircon, heated leather Recaros, xenon headlights etc

I'll get some pictures up if anyone is interested? Although it will need cleaning first as it's filthy
