New owner

Hi guys. I just bought a dark grey 05 ZX4 ST w/108k. i traded my 99 Audi A8Q as it was killing me in gas and repairs. this will be my second car and my daily driver. i dont plan on doing many mods, but maybe simple intake, plugs, floor mats, stuff like that. i need this for the gas mileage and reliability. My other toys and house soak up all available money.

Looking forward to being part of yet another forum with good people. Pictures will be up soon, but its nothing special.

Welcome to the forum


Moved your thread to the MK2 chat area.

I would like to have a 05' ST myself, it's a fantastic platform to start with and has the most desirable motor and the suspension has more options for it than the 06-07 model ST's

You came to the right forum! The 2.3 duratec is a great engine! Not much needs to be done to it, if anything, to have it be a fun and reliable car.

And as a Ducati owner, I know what you mean about other toys taking up speed parts budget! :P had a ninja before that, it was a fun bike too :) looking foreword to pics!
