how about 5 door focus ST maybe? Same performance but real sound and good grunt. Shi* interior though but you can solve this easily by using 10kg of foam filler
ST...same performance? which ST have you been driving
Lad is selling a BT ST 400bhp over on ed38
Ok similar performance but once you remap ST is quite good car to drive interior however is worst I have ever seen.
I'll agree with that, before buying my 8L S3 I sat in an ST, opened the glovebox, shut it and walked away never wondering if i'd like one ever again
They are better once mapped but for a 2.5 litre turbo they are gash i've found, mapped S3 versus mapped ST isn't far off but it isn't comparable in real terms
mapped S3 stage 2+ would destroy any ST I reckon in terms of quality, looks and performance. Had 2 STs before and just couldnt stand perma rattling and losing grip from stand still. My mapped TDI is not far off standard ST but looking to get S3 S tronic in near future just because I found diesel boring to drive (1st gear is a joke, turbo lag, constant gear changes, etc) and hardly any birds turn their heads around when they hear me coming .
I think a standard S3 would outperform a standard ST no bother nevermind a stage 2+ S3, I think a standard S3 would give a remapped ST a run for its money...

bhp per ton =183
0-60 = 5.6
0-100 = 13.6
Top end 155
Ford Focus ST 222hp@6000rpm weight= 1392kg
Bhp per ton 162
0-60 = 6.7
0-100 = 16.3
Top end 150
Omg I rolled stats out - shame
well ive had a few plays with ST's in this and my old stage 1 8L S3 and they have never given me any trouble at all.....infact i'd go as far to say a Type R civic (properly driven)would do a standard ST having been against both many a time......
Redejavu - You've just sealed that for me, i was sat at work thinking I hardly boot mine anymore i might aswell get a diesel
my pleasure We can swap for 20 min to help make your mind up hehe.
TBF it IS quite grey.....
And I know exactly how much damage to my bank account you could cause in that time knowing my MPG
Going sideways is my second nature.
