In my opinion if you look at what the ST has and dont understand the benefit, then you just dont get it. Drive a Ti, and then an ST, and you WILL see where the money went. Nothing wrong with an SEL or a Ti, but to me the ST is far far above both of them. Just the feeling of the thrust, the sound when the boost kicks in, the Handling, the Seats (I'm 6'4" 250lbs and i love them). Its just in another class to me. But i own one and am smitten, so maybe im biased who knows.
