I love performance cars, but I want something my girlfriend would be comfortable driving too.

The ST doesn't sound like a race car to me, just a great daily driver. From what I've read, it doesn't sound like it is hard-riding. I think the extra power/agility from the ST would make this an easy choice.

My only concern is with the steering....I would want a nice long test drive to make sure it would be fine with me. I really need to drive one of these....
