Of course I'd likely go for the ST over the Ti, but the base ST is essentially an SE with the body kit and turbocharged 2.0L GTDI engine and a 6MT instead of the standard 5 speed naturally aspirated 2.0L GDI engine.
I'm one of those more interested in fuel economy and some luxury than performance. I would not buy a focus for performance reasons, but of course performance is still key. However I would buy an ST over a Ti! if only the dealership would have had a slightly used 2013 ST then that's what I would have picked. It's bad enough they lied to me and told me ford isn't making a 6 speed manual (and my fault for not being up to date on my research). Already thinking about trading in my 2012 for one and I have only had it for 2 weeks...

BTW what is X plan and Plan A?
