That's weird, I've driven several Focus STs at a Ford event at their test track on the high speed track. I liked it more than the other cars like the 2013 Mustang GT 5.0 l atx. However I wasn't disappointed by my SEL afterwards, but I get along with my dct and usually drive much more mellow in traffic so the mpg is nice.

Got to thrash some Ford owned examples to 80 mph and feel the turbo come on song and chasing down the mustangs.

There were two chicanes to slow down for and really feel the power. I loved the 6 mt but the clutch takes a few laps to get used to.
