I keep toying with the idea of getting one of these. One of my mates had one back in '03 when they were new and I've loved them ever since. I actually see the exact car for sale on Gumtree a couple of months ago. If it didn't have 180,000 miles on it then I would've considered buying it. You get a lot of car for the money

Looking good mate.

I loved mine.

I had a JP Exhaust fitted, it sounded epic.

When your finances allow, I strongly recommend the jp exhaust!! When I bought this st220 it had a milltek which sounded ok. I then swapped it for the jp off my blue one before I sold it because I missed the noise. It's not massively loud but has a lovely rumble and the pops, crackles and bangs are awesome 😁. The build quality of the jp is also excellent. I'll have to get a sound clip of it.

Yours looked very nice👌 performance blue is a great colour. I do miss it if I'm honest.

Will certainly bear it in mind, would love to hear a sound clip

As promised here are some vids of the JP exhaust. p.s the vids sound much better when played through headphones or aux input on stereo.

Enjoy!

I know nothing of the blue oval. Are these petrol? What kind of power they make? I like all the cars on this thread, real mile munchers.

American sourced 3.0 duratec v6. Made for mile munching as long as maintained well. Not the fastest of cars due to weight but the sound and how smooth the engine is more than makes up for it! The handling also surprises alot of folk😉
