I'd like to see a 3 dr model. I'm not keen on the rear lights the way they come so far along the rear wing, but apart from that I like it, especially the alloys.....I've always liked this style, sorry Jim Bisset.

Well done Ford, the revised Focus ST still retains its wolf in sheeps clothing looks however, whilst Im assured that varying wheel options are available, I must agree with Jim Bissets comment re the 18" alloy wheels the continuing use of which needs to be re-considered as to join the "also ran" options list! In the meantime, I look forward to securing a road test in the upgraded model to check out the tec performance stats!

Ford seem to have an employee responsible for choosing their wheel designs who is completely lacking in taste. These inverted-Y designs that they've been using for some time now are the ugliest wheels known to man. Enough to stop me from buying a Ford!
