I picked up my ST last Thursday... all I can say is, the bar has been raised. This car is a joy to drive, at ANY speed, though it is easy to go fast! I drove it down from Ohio to Florida, I am a big dude with broad shoulders, and the Recaro's were pretty comfy and supportive, even for my size. Shifting is crisp and solid, throttle response and torque is stellar and it feels like it's on rails. Carving out the mountain roads on I75 through Tennessee has never been so fun. For the record, while visiting, I drove a 2010 Mustang GT with an intake, exhaust header, exhaust, race cams and a tune, making about 440 HP. That car was vicious and wickedly fast, but I would still choose the ST. The Mustang owner (bro in law) drove the Focus and could not believe how quick it was and how well it handled.
