Hello! Picked up a 2018 ST3 this past weekend and looking forward to joining the ST community. I've been out of the scene for a while, and I'm excited to be back! How long was I away??? I'm coming off a decently modded 1992 Tsi that hasn't ran since 2006 lol. Been driving a CRV since then, and it feels so good to be back in a turbo. I still own the Talon, but she's probably going to the graveyard after this. See y'all around.

Proud new owner of a 2016 ox-white ST1. Completely stock so far, but lovin it ! Oh yeah, Im from Wilmington NC, and an older dude, but I still like to go fast ! The last turbo car I owned was an 85 Dodge Shelby Charger (2.2 turbo), and that was about 20 years ago, so it's all new all over again !

Hello all from Dayton Ohio. My wife and I just picked our 18' ST in Magnetic Metallic. Nice upgrade from her 01' zx3. First turbo car for us, so looking forward to learning about these little rockets. A lot different than V8 rear wheel drive cars that I've always had.

Hey everyone! I just picked up a used (<20k miles) 2016 Kona Blue ST1 here in North Texas. I can already tell it's probably going to be one of the best cars I'll ever own. I've done a few things to it including Cobb cold air pipe with a green filter in the stock box, sound symposer delete, muffler delete, and a shorty antenna. Looking forward to learning more about what else I should do to make it even more fun.

I have a wife and daughter, and I love to ride road bikes when I have time. Nice to meet you all!

Hello, bought a 2018 St3 last month. Awesome car! Own a fleet of Ford trucks for my landscaping and pest control company, has a Fiesta but wanted something with more balls than the Fiesta or my MGB....mission accomplished. See you in my rear views....

Just purchased a 2017 White ST1 brand new off the lot yesterday here in Pittsburgh. I was really amazed with the deeply discounted price for this much car. I've been looking at the ST for years, but with kids and college, the time was never right. Well owning this car has been a dream of mine for so long, I can't believe its actually happened.

Hi guys. I’m from Michigan and just purchased an 18’ ST in shadow black 2 months ago. I already have almost 5,000 miles on it and am looking for my first couple upgrades soon. I can’t wait to see what everyone else has to share about what they have done to their car.

Boy, I am late to the party on this one. Owner of an 2014 ST3 w/ moonroof since March of 2014, took me over 4 years to start being active in here. Granted I've learned and sourced much information from these forums so thanks to all. Got the car 2nd hand with under 1000 miles on it, and it's just a tick over 20k right now, bone stock. It's treated me well. Unfortunately my family has grown from wife, to 1 child, to now 2 children. It's definitely cramped so I'm likely moving to something larger. Been a fun run nevertheless, solid car up to date.

Long time lurker, first time poster. Found the forum educating myself about all the many options that can be done to the amazing ST platform. Seriously, every time I considered posting a question, I found the answer here or a link to an answer. <3

Edit: Like the clutch life question I almost asked tonight like a basic noob. >.<

Eyeballing Focuses since the SVT. Bought a 2016 ST3 after neutering myself for too long in a Honda Pilot. Did a TON of research and finally got the AP, Rear MM, COBB CAI, filter, COBB catted downpipe (stock exhaust), a Stratified tune (MAGIC) and Mountune came to the rescue with a FMIC. Seems so many ICs have been on backorder lately.

Work in IT. Recently remarried with a new ST passenger on the way (next week!).

Hey, everybody. Yesterday, I purchased a 2016 Kona blue Ford Focus ST 401A. I'm very happy with my purchase but not how it came about. On 9/22/18 I was in a head-on collision in my Nissan Juke with a 2002 Toyota Camry. I've survived with a few broken bones and the other guy is a lot worse off than me. Anyway, thanks for having me.

Hi all,
Just picked up a new 2018 Focus ST1 for $18.5k out the door!! I'm coming from a 2016 Club Miata so the driving dynamics are quite different, but I love the flatness of the ST in the corners and the GY Eagle F1's that came with the car really hold it down. Still need to nail down the clutch engagement though. The travel isn't as linear as in the miata so I find myself a bit surprised at times when it springs out near the top of the travel. Posting a picture below, hopefully it comes through. See you guys out there!

Got my 2018 ST-2 this weekend! Been on the hunt since last year. Finally pulled the trigger! Very happy with it so far and eager to find some local ST clubs/meet ups. I'm in the South Jersey shore area!

Hello Members,
I'm Keith, and I'm an old dude (lol) 50 years old and I live in Los Angeles. I've been researching the ST since the summer and I'm looking to take the plunge very soon. My color choice is Blue Metallic. I'm waiting to hear if the dealer located a ST-2, I must have the moonroof and I love the snowflake wheels. I'm looking forward to being part of the ST community and learning more about my soon to be new car. Peace

Hello all. My names Steven and I just purchased a 2016 St in Shadow Black with 25k miles. Its the 401a package or ST2, same thing I think. It has the partial leather Recaros and nav. This is my second car. First was an 04 acura TSX which I stanced out. Super low, wide wheels, the whole deal. I leared from that experience that doing that looks great but basically destroys a car so I wont be doing anything like that this time around. I will eventually modify this car but I wanna get the most out of the warranty before I touch anything. Im in north jersey and I look forward to learning alot on this forum!

Hi everyone,
Just purchased a 2016 ST with 37k miles last week. I'm coming over from a 2009 MazdaSpeed 3. It has 180k miles and the turbo started consuming oil so I decided it was time for something a little newer. So far I'm loving the car!

Hello, I just bought my 2015 ST this month and it's completely stock aside from a tint I just threw on it. It's got about 64k on it and I plan on using it as my commuter for the next 5 or so years, but I still want to do some fun stuff to it. Located in Los Angeles, would love to meet some new friends in the area as I'm absolutely in love with the car and want to learn more and attend meetups. Also this thing is going to need a new set of tires all around soon, any recommendations?

Howdy all...

Not my first ST, or even “hot hatch” if you will.

Bought my first one in late 2016, a magnetic gray ST1. Put some RS wheels and tires on her and racked up 20,xxx miles driving the I5 corridor back and forth from the Pacific Northwest to San Diego.
375726


A year later traded her in on a 2018 F150 and regretted it so bad, that two weeks ago I bought another (albeit this time used) 2015 ST3 screaming tangerine with only 30,xxx miles on her.

375727


...wishing I had kept the RS wheels!

Other notable hatchbacks I have owned and loved;

Ford Escort EXP (yes that counted back then)
Dodge Shelby Charger
Dodge Daytona Shelby Z
Chevy Cavalier Z24 (not a hatch but whatevs)
mid 80s VW GTI
Eagle Talon Tsi AWD
Dodge Stealth R/T twin turbo
