Sucks to see a badass focus go. Glad your came out no too banged up. Sorry I missed the original thread.

To honest, The ST wheels look plain and scrawny next to the oem volvo wheels. Maybe the change in stance will change my mind.

How's it compare to the focus in the corners? Is it responsive enough to heel-toe and chuck around? My biggest complaint with my mustang is the response and feel
I cannot make an honest opinion on that. I have not driven a Focus with stock suspension (cept for the 13 ST) in over 8 years.

It definately handles good for a stock suspension, but does not compare to my SVT on KW coilovers.

Suspension upgrades are DEFINATELY coming very soon.

I love everything about the c30 until I see its rear. Gets me every time. Sorry about your SVT. I can't wait to see what the kind of machine you turn the Volvo into
