ST Seats - Not for Me

At the dealership as I type getting the 3.5.1 MFT update and saw they had a ST in the show room. Sharp looking car! Until I sat in it!

It had the Recaro seats. Now I am a average size guy, the seats were so uncomfortable! Way to narrow for seats with large bolsters. The leather seats in my Ti are way more comfortable. That pretty much killed my excitment about the ST.

For what it is worth the Recaro's in the VW R32 were way more comfy.

The Recaro's in the ST fit me like a glove. For sure not a one size fits all seat.

Same, I quite like them :) I'd get them in blue to put in my car in a heartbeat! But I am a bit on the small side.

Darn. And here Ford had its future riding on the sale of one ST to you. I guess Mullaly better start the winddown process.

FYI, never had plans to get a ST smart a**

My Ti has way more options and with the 18s looks just as good.

Got it, thanks. A side note to Casey the Hedgehog: what do the rules say about name-calling? How is that looked upon vis-a-vis adding to the conversation?
