One thing I've noticed. I like to cruise with the windows down whenever possible. When I lower the rear windows, at certain speeds an oscillation occurs that can be very annoying.
Ive found the ST to be a pleasant ride as well. The car takes bumps in the road very nicely and is actually step up from my AGX / H&R setup I had on my 2000 SE when adjusted to a slightly softer setting.

The thing that I love about the ST is that it literally feels like it is constantly begging to be driven fast.
