youll need an rs for that... and now a days even small compact cars are getting heavier... safety, handling reasons

and who said i loved my car? its an ok car, thats about it. and i never said i hated the "new" to us st, im just saying its too early/soon to put it on a podium and start praising it.

most people see the new st and just because its turbo'ed cream their pants. people who dont even understand how a turbo works, I dont see it that way (and shi+) i still havent seen one in person.

This car just beat the MS3 and GTI in a road test, if you don't like it, don't buy it. (On top of Focus ST talk being off topic for this thread.)

And no im not buying one anytime soon i already learned my leasson of buying a new car then modding the fk out of it = not worth it

nice pics i LOL'ed

Malibooya ^ x2. Besides, have you ever driven a small Honda with a big turbo? They're annoying and loud ALL THE TIME. The point of the MS3, GTI, Focus ST etc. is to have a relatively quick hot hatch with all the creature comforts a normal person would want to DD it.

That said, if we get the Fiesta ST and it gets noticeably better mileage than my ZX3, I'll buy one.
