While you still love her, you're still going to be disappointed later.
Many people (myself included) had much faster/better handling cars before their 2012 Focus.
I'm not disappointed at all.
The reality is that in 99% of normal everyday driving, the extra HP / better handling buys you *nothing*. The road that I do 40 MPH on in one car is the road that I will do 40 MPH on in any car.
In any case, the ST is not exactly a performance monster so it's nothing to get so excited about. One could say that a ST owner should never drive a Mustang GT...
