There are things i miss about my Saleen, but everytime i go out and drive my ST i forget all about the Saleen. The Fswerks tune helped bring a lil raw back into the ST though :-P
Probably trying to justify the cost of the st vs a moddit out older foci or a awd wrx or speed3. Nothing wrong w/ that. Yeah, I like the new st, it'd be great if it was a little more raw or had a little more edge to it. You pretty much said it is smoother in a lot of ways.
