European traffic for you

Agreed. I have never ONCE complained about having to drive a manual when stuck in traffic like that, and I've always found a traffic-filled commute to be a lame-ass excuse for buying an automatic. (Then again, it's usually American women I hear making that excuse, not men...)

That European women drive stick is yet another reason that European women are hot.

Posted via FF Mobile Idk if the ST is gonna come with powershift. I would love if it did, but do they have a powershift that is tough enough to deal with that much tq? Thats why it took so long for DSG to run up the model line at VW and audi. Audis R8 is just now being tested with a dsg transmission. Before it was never able to handle that much power. This is why we have only seen powershift on small low power cars instead of like on the mustang and the sho. But, I believe ford is working hard and I wouldnt be surprised that when the Mustang transforms into a true sports car in 2014.5, itll have powershift, at least on the V6. If the ST gets powershift, Im in.

About what I expected. A bit over 30k for a fully loaded ST. Not too bad.

Just built mine for $29,860
It sounds like a lot but you are getting a lot in the car at that price.
Now to decide if I want to wait a year for them to work out any bugs...
