    SprintA3's Tangerine Scream ST2

    I recently picked up my 2013 Focus ST to replace my 2007 Audi A3. Rather than bump up and create a ton of other threads every time I do something, I figured I'd just make a build thread.

    I'm a photographer, so this thread will definitely be photo heavy.

    Mods
    Cobb Stage 2 93 v105
    cp-e™ Intake
    cp-e™ Cat Back Exhaust
    cp-e™ Front Mount Intercooler
    cp-e™ Hot Side Charge Pipe
    cp-e™ Cold Side Charge Pipe
    E-Focus Mount

    OZ Superturismo LM 18"
    50% Tint all around
    Stubby Antenna
    Debadged

    Photos a few days after I picked the car up...









    And for those interested, here's my last car. I had APR Stage 2+, APR full exhaust, APR fuel pump, Tein Pillowball Mount Coilovers with EDFC, APR front and rear sway bars, all 3 VF motor mounts, CCW LM20 wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport tires, and a bunch of little supporting mods. I only planned on chipping that car but got out of control, I'm trying to not go as crazy with this car.

    Thanks a lot! I have a web and graphic design company and also do photo stuff on the side.

    I was able to install the E-Focus mount last week and I think it really makes a big difference. At first I figured that I would just keep it for a few months then upgrade to a stiffer mount, but now I'm really liking the balance that this mount offers. It fixes a large amount of the problem with absolutely 0 change in NVH. On my last car I had all 3 poly mounts and the car had a great deal of vibrations, so seeing improvement with very little change is excellent.

    Here are some photos of the mount...

    Also, earlier today I did a photo shoot with the new wheels. Before today I haven't had time to go out and take pictures in decent light. Today it was super foggy and not very dramatic, but it made for some nice low-key fog shots.

    Really cool shots mate! Thanks for sharing! Some of them have been added to my desktop backgrounds folder.


    BTW: Ex-web graphics designer here (did that for about 10 years), now turned IT tech. Looks like we have similar backgrounds...

    Very cool, glad to know there are more design background people driving ST's. I definitely have a lot of respect for the IT side of the business, I can create things and code, but I can't deal with troubleshooting in the way that you guys can.

    The roads have been covered with salt and it's been snowing a tiny bit every week, so I haven't had a chance to take new shots or enjoy the car. So here are a few outtakes from the last set.











    And one to show how the wheels sit with the lower offset.

    REALLY nice work on these shots mate! And nice RAW work too... you really brought the best of you source to the surface. I especially like the second shot with a fairly neutral and clean city background... another one for my ST wallpapers folder.
