Hey all,

I have a problem. I have now owned three foci. Here is the latest edition to the lineup:

2013 CPO loaded ST2 with 25500 miles at purchase, original tires and brakes with recall complete! I've had it about 1.5 months so far lol






The SVT was traded in. Had 135,000 miles, I put 75,000 of those on in the 5 years I owned it. Loved my SVT but it was time and I needed something bigger. The only logical replacement was an ST. I wasn't a fan of the ST1 interior, nor the ST2/3 but it has grown on me. I looked at VW, both mk7 TDI and TSI and while I loved the interior, both were not as fun to drive; would have liked a GTI, but never drove one or really let myself consider it. Plus, reliability scared me. Part of me wanted a '15 ST, but I didn't want to wait any longer. Plus, CPO warranty is better than new, without the depreciation hit!

First Bath with the gf's car behind:


Hope to see you all in Daytona!

-Rob

PS. I'm not living in Florida right now, but close enough. And Breedt shift arm...front to back is awesome, but side to side is a little sloppy. Can I dial that out by adjusting cables?

Welcome, love PB, often regret not getting it but I do love my OW. Not sure on quick shift arm, but perhaps some solid shifter bushings/trans cable bushings would get rid of some if not all of the slop.

Boomba shifter base bushings... might as well throw a boomba short shifter in there while you've got the console out... it's not nearly as easy to remove as the early generations :(

OW was my second choice, but Blue has always been my favorite on the SVT (Sonic Blue) and ST! And yeah, bushings...thanks!

Thanks, and the bushings are what I figured... and ripping apart the interior is why i went with the trans shifter arm...ugh.

Thanks. I'm in the FL ST group and groupme chats.

If you all are in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area ... feel free to stop by our Pompano Beach, FL location. A lot of cool things around the shop!

Best Regards,

TJ
Appreciate it! I'm from Ft Lauderdale and know of Steeda. Been to several stampedes, with my dads mustangs and my other 2 foci.
