Ordered a 5 speed 5 door Sterling Grey Metallic last week SE with the Sport Package, 16" painted pockets, and sync. I feel like I will not be unhappy with this decision. I'm trading in my 2011 Impreza in on it and I also drive a 1993 Prelude for fun (It's my race car lol).

So far I see no real draw backs. This car will be my daily driver and ocassional fun/autocross car when the Prelude is down. I hope to see decent handling out of the box. I loved the steering feel from the electric steering, it reminded me a lot of the s2000 I had, and from what I can tell on my test drive of a manual sedan the car felt great on backroads.

Figured I would hit up the forums and see what people think.

Car newbie here!

Moving from my life long home of London, UK to the lovely hills of Austin, TX. Not being quite as pedestrian-friendly as London, I need a car.

I spec'd out a Yellow Blaze Focus Titanium hatch (the Euro-based model appealing to my inner Brit) and am now working with intlauto.com to get a build underway. Will post pictures when my new baby is built.

Welcome to the site, from a survivor of 22 years living in north Texas. If you've ever been to Texas in summer, you know why it's not pedestrian-friendly. "Walking distance" is just a shorthand way of asking "how close can I park my air-conditioned car to the entrance of my air-conditioned destination?"

Hi, I'm jack. I plan to buy an ST next year to replace a Subaru Legacy GT. My "other" car is a Lotus Elise. I'm a long time car guy and spent a few decades on the track in various cars driving, racing and teaching. Looking for something that will be fun, moddable and get great gas mileage since I drive a lot. I dono.....I play guitar too and have 2 sons who are also into cars.
