    Not a ford man, but the Mk1 looks like any other focus... need to get the mk2? or 3 for it to really start appealing
    Celica T-Sport , Audi S3 , scania r series

    I had a Mk1 one straight from the showroom a good few years ago.
    Good fun car to drive but rock solid suspension. It also drunk petrol like it was going out of fashion, seem to remember about 220 per tank between pit stops. Was probably due to the fact I was only 21 and was in what I considered a quick car at the time.

    Not had a 170 but the zetec I had was a decent car handled well. St170 are a cool looking car

    never had any problems with it to be honest. Was relaible and nice to drive, just a pain on longer jounerys with the susspension set up. 17's are standard and the ride is very hard on the low profiles!

    The engine is just a tuned version of the 2.0 zetec found in the std focus/mondeo so it's a prooven engine. Seem to remember about 8 seconds to 60.

    At the end of the day it's a focus and they are always good for reliability. Mine was brand new at the time so can't really comment on repair costs as never had to worry with that.

    Not had the ST170 but if it drives as well as the Focus ST3 then it will be a good handling car.

    Heard good stories about them mate..........

    Look on the Focus ST site and you will get a better idea......
