The seats in the 2012 Focus SE/Sport, I traded in on the ST were more comfortable (due to the ST's overly tight thigh bolsters).

I think we got them from here and the price was right.

Where did you get the covers? My Dad is looking for some for his SE.

I've had 6+ hour trips in both the Focus and my STI and the Sport seats in the Focus are much easier on the back and just enough snugness to give you lateral support but have a little room to move which the seats in the Subi are too snug.
We did have some unusual wear on the driver's seat so instead of waiting for it too wear and become a warranty issue we just covered 'em up. These are really decent seats for a $20k car.

I finally saw an ST1 a couple weeks back and the base seats look pretty good in-person. I would have no problem buying an ST1.
I would prefer the dual-zone climate control, but can live w/o that (as I am now!).

I drove in all three of those seats, and the most uncomfortable of the three was your vaulted ST3 leather! They'll be years before they break in and allow the driver's position to feel settled; just like the old rental car type seats: it feels like you're on top of the seat, and not in it.
And an argument could be made that if sophistication is what your shopping for you've been led astray; the general population in this country aren't gonna think any Focus has sophistication (with the exception of this lot)! I've been painting and color matching everything I thought would look good since I got mine in '03 which is why the ST2's appeal to me; but I'd take an LMFAO-themed animal print seat in a heartbeat over a sophisticated-looking one that didn't cradle me properly!
I can already see the symbiotic-swaps happening for these warlocks: if the elder-boppers hate the colory ones and the boy racers want the accented seats...
