Are these good deals or should we keep looking?

2013 - SE Hatchback 5spd Manual
Ingot Silver / Charcoal
201A - SE Appearance Package
Winter Package
Exterior Protection Package
MSRP with Destination and Delivery - $24,270
Price after rebates, Ford Motor Credit and Private Offer - $19,550

2013 - ST Hatchback 6spd Manual
Ingot Silver / Charcoal
MSRP with Destination and Delivery - $25,390
Price after Private Offer - $23,343

I live in SW Missouri and best I can tell there is $2500 in rebates and my Private Offer for $500 available.
The rebates seem to indicate you have to take delivery from dealer stock by 4/1/13 to qualify, but the dealer says he can order these cars built and get me the rebates and the above prices.
I'm told the rebates are not available on the ST and I can only use the $500 Private Offer on it.

All advice appreciated.
You need to identify what you want to do with the car. If it's a hypermiler, buy the SE. If it's going to be your "everything" car, I'd buy the ST.

The SE deal is pretty good, but that's not the best ST deal I've seen. However, you're a bit challenged with dealerships. In socal I have 20+ dealerships in an hour's drive so they're all eager to earn the business.

Just make sure whatever you do you don't get a DCT car!
