Is the gas mileage bad in the ST? Obviously the sticker states 32 highway... is that realistic?
I haven't bought anything yet, but who wants to be seen driving a WRX? I think the Focus seemed cramped because I was going from a larger car, but the center console does intrude a bit.

The ST1 is available for those who don't want the Recaro side bolsters. Personally, I like them, but my girlfriend probably would not be a fan. Then again she thinks I should buy a Toyota Corolla, so you see what I'm up against.
