Hi ST enthusiasts,

I'm Andie from Yardley, PA approximately 45 minutes from Philly and 1 hr from The City - that being NYC. I've loved cars since I can remember. I'm coming from a 2004 WRX Prem, which I absolutely love but it's not the most practical car for an outdoorsy person. Seats don't fold down. Anyway, I will miss the car but I'm looking to purchase a performance hatch. I'm still on the fence, and considering: 1) Focus ST, 2) Golf R and 3) Volvo C30 R design w/KPAX.

So, I'm on this Forum to gather information, as well as on vwvortex for the Golf R. If I order an ST (which I'm inclined to do), it would likely be Oxford White, ST3 with sunroof. The chance to get Recaro seats is exciting.

Thanks!

Welcome aboard! Let us know what tid-bits you find on the Golf forum, and don't buy into the whole "OMG my ST3 isn't going to arrive until October of 2015 because of (enter problem here). LOL

Thanks for the great welcome. As far as waiting, I fine about it. Allows me to save more for the down payment. One thing I'll say about vwvortex, it's amazing how much folks spend on mods, $4,000+ on Recaros, and that's on the low end of spending. But, there is a lot of experienced folks on that forum. For the money, the Focus ST is a phenomenal package. I'm only hesitating because I love AWD.

Those are some great cars. Certainly different groups. The German crew has a quite a history. Getting an ST would be like buying the new GTi back in the day, getting in at the beginning. First new car I test drove was a white 83 GTi. I was pretty familiar with the Rabbit as my friend had a diesel. That car was sslllllooooowwww. But we spent many an hour in it and I have no memories of filling it up.

Welcome!
