Hm. Doesn't work for me. I don't mind the stock TS color, though it wouldn't be my choice. But adding all the black makes it look like some sort of highway department maintenance vehicle. And I like the original hexagonal exhaust. Generic twin circles loses that bit of distinctiveness.

Now what's the engine specs on the Shelby st focus? Don't like the seats the. They look like basic seats just rewrapped in leather. I would rather have the recaro seat from the base st model.

These are the base ST seats rewrapped in leather. Only the ST2-3 get the recaro front seats in North America, the ST2 in the half leather half cloth two tone patterns, and the ST3 in the full leather heated recaro seats.

That is one of the big reasons this is a fail for me. $15k for no increase in power (other than the exhaust). Shelby: Oh, you want more performance? That's an option. More money please.

And I'm willing to bet the tune doesn't match what Cobb and SCT have been able to provide.

For the most part it's cosmetics like I expected but at leat you get nice brakes and the suspension but I could do more with less if I started with an ST. For the money it will still be chasing cheaper stock competition.

40MPG? They are kidding right? I've barely scratched 30MPG and several of my tank fulls have been driven like a GRANDMA just to see how much I could squeeze out.

I hear ya on that. The same engine in my escape, I'm only getting 20 on a good day. (its supposed to be rated at 29 on the highway)

Floodyou76 01-15-2013 02:58 PM

15k...you can get the same performance upgrades for, im sure, a fraction of that price...and again...no additional power?

The seats just look like they are cheap seat covers that dont even fit right.

Compare the changes between:

Normal Ford Mustang GT to Shelby GT500 Mustang

and

Normal Focus ST to Shelby Focus ST

And they advertise "new era of shelby pocket rocket"?? with no increase in power(and if there is with the chip...minimal im sure)
**disclaimer: if the above comment was made by FF Admin who started the thread then disregard my "pocket rocket" statement and revert back to the models comparison :)
