All this is great. But to say Ford is screwing up by offering a computer automated manual on the ST is just F'd up. It has the manual option for those whom want it, and they will offer an automated version as soon as they have it ready. If they only offered a DCT/DSG, I would understand the strong feelings, but as is I am at a loss.
