Hi!

 

I found this forum while Googling / researching about future modifications.

 

My wife and I just bought a used 2018 MK8 ST3 with performance package. (It seems the original worked for Ford Sweden and checked every possible box when he made his order).

 

The car came with winter wheels & tires so excuses the 15inch wheels for now  :smile:.

 

Just wanted to pop in and say hello!

 

Thanks,

//Alex

 

Here is a photo during a rest stop on our 350mile trip home after buying the car (while getting around 43mpg - with luggage and 4x wheels/tires in the back)  :nice:

Welcome... Now go and change the tires to summer tires. So much more fun. I did today and oh man it's a different beast with summer tires :p. And cheers from your neighbour in Finland.

Thanks guys :)

 

And by law we cannot switch back to summer tires until March 31st.  :busted: But soon enough.

 

We test drove a 2016 3-door ST before driving the 2018, and while the 2016 was much cheaper, it felt very very tired. Very pleased with the mk8 so far.

Oh man, and I thought Finland had strict rules about winter tires. Let's just say Im quite happy to get rid of my winter set before I ruined it completely with the current "winter weather".
