    Don't shoot me for saying this but

    I think the Focus ST is growing on me

    Seen a few about on the roads now (one blue, one tango) and am starting to like em more and more. Would love to have a VXR but its a little bit out of my price range at the moment. However looking on a few sites I can get an ST to my spec for around £15k. Gonna pop down a f*rd garage on the weekend a try and blag a test drive.

    Decisions decisions ..........

    Don't think many people will shoot you for saying that mate. Thats the great thing about AS, mostly impartial views from people who appreciate a good car when they see one.

    Anyone that rules it out just because its a ford is a bit sad imo.

    Its growing on me as well. The ST has made more of an impression on me than the VXR has.

    After driving one and having a good look about up close I think me personally I will give it a wide berth. Not for me I am afraid

    I think it is available in orange, white, blue, red and black. My friend has just got a black 5 door and it looks really good. I prefer them to the Astra VXR. Why don't Vauxhall make a 5 door VXR? I realise the 5 door doesn't have the same chassis as the Sport Hatch but I think it would sell.
