Building a WRX turns out to be about $32,500 with everything that I want in the Focus ST: leather, moon roof, fog lights, nav, sub-woofer, and I probably forgot some things. Given that the regular focus gets 37mpg highway and the impreza with the new 2.0 engine gets 36mpg even with AWD. If the WRX gets a turbocharged 2.0 like it is rumored to get the gas mileage should be 1 or 2 mpg under the ST. It would be worth an extra $2500-3000 for 15 extra HP, AWD, and not having to deal with MFT to have navigation. Ford is going to have to keep the price pretty low for the ST to be competitive.
