Bought last Thursday

I picked up the performance blue edition focus st. I have run mazdaspeeds and they don't compare until 3rd gear. The speed pulls at a 55 roll and st pulls at a 30 roll. My question is to the people who have them also: anyone have a 1/4 time? Please respond, thank you. Here's a few pictures of mine (haven't taken many) I haven't taken any since I drove it off the lot.

Love the Blue!! I looked over a Black ST2 at a local dealer by me but my ST3 will not get here till October I guess. How is the ride as far as roughness over side streets with the larger tires and the ST suspension? It is not a problem with me but I was just wondering. I am not sure if the dealership will let me test drive the car and I can understand as not to put mileage on another's ST.

The dealer would let you except as of last Friday the focus ST was sold out nation wide. The ride is extremely smooth, great clutch, and lots of power

Not quite, that's just what they tell you to get you to pay more :)

Up here in my area, each dealer has at least 1, some 2 that are unspoken for on the lot. My PB ST2 w/ moonroof and nav has been circling my dealership on the transport truck for 3 days since it left the rail yard Friday. Heres to hoping its delivered today!

Yep, definitely not true. I stare an unclaimed black ST2 in the face all day.

How can you stand sitting across from that beauty every day and not jump in and go for the ride of your life

Haha... It's not easy. But I'm new here, and so is the car, so they're not allowing sales guys to just take them out. The only employee that has driven it is my manager. I'll go for a drive eventually, but the time can't come soon enough.

On the upside, I should get to take a fully-loaded SHO for a drive today... nowhere near the same thing, but still exciting...
