Now we got a can of worms opened up to which I say if you want performance and MPG then get a 2 wheeler. Liter bike fast is bliss.
IMO sport bikes are a legal form of assisted suicide, I would never consider one over ANY car. I can see the appeal of a Harley or something for the experience and the cool factor, but a sports bike is just asking for trouble. Anyway, I too am perfectly happy with my regular old Focus. It handles amazingly well for an inexpensive fwd car, gets great mileage, looks fantastic,and it's quick enough to be entertaining. The ST would be nice and it sure looks appealing, but I just cant justify it. Plus, I won't miss the frequent torque steer related wheel alignments of the ST one bit- that's if my past experiences with high power fwd cars hold true.
