usually by the time its converted and shipping costs, around 15,000 somewhere.
glass has to be changed, some of the structure (doors aren't up to us impact standards, and several other things)
like they said, it can be done but youd need to cut through a crapload of red tape and have it inspected and certified.
not at all worth the money or headache

That depends on who you know. You can have a car shipped over here, but there's no reason to ship a Focus ST when you can just go down to Mexico and purchase one off the showroom floor. Left hand drive and all.

Sascha at Europeanparts.net was importing Euro Focus ST's. I'd contact him if you had the money and were serious.

"legally"? absolutely legal?

Import 3. One for crash testing. One for emissions testing. Those two go to the crusher, and then the results from the testing are applied to the third one, rendering it US street legal.

$100,000+ is a bit much for a 25K car IMHO.
