For that money most Americans would look at a Camaro or Mustang or, if they prefer European, perhaps an A3 or a 135i.

Buy an ST. Enjoy the hell out of it. If an RS eventually comes state side, you can probably sell the ST without too bad a hit.

This is slightly misguided. Look at how many Titaniums are selling, as well as fully loaded Fiestas. People want fully loaded small cars.

The "most" you talk about, aren't going to be purchasing an RS anyway. The people that would purchase an RS, know it's heritage, and know what it can do, and would look at it. (Yes this includes Subi, Evo, VW owners, etc.)
