Try to look at the positive side of NOT buying an ST.

First: Your insurance will not go up.
Second: you will avoid the speeding tickets with added on reckless behavior.. for driving at 140mph..
(this second one is MY reason not to buy a ST. My LAST ticket in my Contour SVT was 35 over the limit.. And I was LUCKYLUCKY, becuse I had just hit the gas, and if the cop had been only a 1/4 mile further down the freeway, i would have been stopped for doing 65 over the limit..
So I DO NOT NEED a ST... I really would rather keep my license)

Then you will also avoid having guys in Subarus wanting to race you.. with perhaps the same bad end as #2 reason for not owning a ST.
