I'm still very happy with mine though
Yes its the ST ( 250 petrol) ... goes well but lots of torque steer when pushing it but all it ever wants to do is go .. great fun ( I Also have a BMW Z4 with 2.5 and a Porsche Boxter ... the focus despite the 4 doors would leave both for dead , however for all ford call it an eco boost engine its thirsty , very thirsty but I like it and cant think of what to replace it with ( had a Honda Civic typeR before it and stunning car but the new one is ugly as sin so Im keeping it until something nicer comes along )

Top car colours in Australia

White: 30%

Silver: 19.44%

Blue: 11.29%

Black: 10.43%

Grey: 8.02%

Red: 6.81%

The exhaust is quiet unless you really start to push it but I am in favour of tuned exhausts be it cars or bikes
However the Cooper S does have a loud scorpion race system fitted and one of my bikes is running yoshi full race RS3s that some would say are loud

Re: Grey is the UK's favourite car colour for the first time

My Fiat is white, and I am really pleased with it.

I would never buy a grey car, horrible colour, and neither would I have another black one or red one. I'd have white again though.

Re: Grey is the UK's favourite car colour for the first time

I think AUDI started the grey fashion when they did the RS6 in flat grey ...then ford /bmw followed and now it’s the boy racer colour of choice to be different , so different in fact it’s now the most common colour ha ha
