32 years old, soooo; not middle aged and no mid-life (that's what Vettes are for). Perhaps you could only see yourself driving those seats for the aforementioned reasons...

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...
