From a Titanium to an ST

Hey everyone, some of you may know me allready, I had a 2012 white platinum focus titanium, and after some debating, I finally pulled the trigger on a 2014 RaceRed Focus ST3, my old car was a titanium with an auto, transmission was fine but i started to felt some shift felt sluggish/not smooth and I wanted to trade it in before its get any more worse than that, now with a 6 speeds manuel, no more problem :D

Here are somes pics of Old vs New

New:

Is there any particular reason why you purchased a ST with winter just around the corner (for example, did you get a good price)?

Are you going to change the tires and/or wheels soon?

I bought it because if i wasnt getting it now, I would only been able to put my hand on one at the end of the next summer, and by that time I got scared that the 2015 would be out and the ST would receive a facelift (model change), But I like this particular model, this is the main reason I bought it now, It is gonna be a summer only car, I have a winter car ready allready, so I didnt mind about buying it before winter, I bough a car shelter/battery tender/fuel stabilizer so im ready to store it away, Its gonna be protected from the snow and salt

Then get the h*ll out of the MK3 forum and don't come back.

Seriously, that ST is drop dead gorgeous.

Jealous.

I didnt chose the white because well, its would be to..... white xD, I had a white car before and another one... nah, white on the ST is only Oxford white, which mean no metallic in it + white with nothing else (no sticker, line or something) is kinda boring, since its an ST i wanted to reflect the sport look of it and Red I think is the best color to choose from (black is too hard to maintain clean/ Performance blue is too, ordinary (my dad have an 2007 F150, same color, and im getting tired of seeing it lol) /Tangerine I was afraid i would get bored of that color after a while and last was silver, but silver imo is the most boring color ever, tis doesnt belong to an ST (again that just my opinion) so last color left was red and I allways loved that color (except bird poops alot on this color -_-)
