Evo/STI vs. Focus ST? Talk about apples and oranges.
Sure, either of those would smoke a ST but the feel is completely different.
I am strongly considering a ST whereas I wouldn't give an Evo or STI a second thought (it has nothing to do with $$$).
As I stated previously, the ST is the wrong car for those who worry about about numbers (HP, 0-60, etc.) or which BOV to install.
I hope you are right about the high price (to keep the kiddies away) but I would guess that the starting price will be closer to $26K.
