I talked with two ford rep's at the chicago auto show and as already stated in this thread a few times, they said the "st will be priced higher than the titanium". I seriously hope the base model ST (granted base may be pretty loaded) is not over 25k. I am one of those people that is still kind of stuck in 2002 new car pricing (svtf fully loaded for 18-19k). Still though... If the ST starts at 27 or 28k I will most likely be looking elsewhere.

My friend had a 2010 GTI spec'd out with everything but nav and the sticker was 32k. Was a nice car, but not 32k Nice! She now has a 2010 MS3 base model with tech package (sticker 26 but got it as a new leftover for 22k)

I personally am stuck between the mustangs, a wrx and potentially the new ST but only if its not overly priced. I Feel a base model mustang 5.0 is a fair price at 28-29k. I think the v6 is an even better deals starting at 23k for that nice combo of HP & mpg... Lets hope ford impresses us in every aspect!
