I have the money, and if the RS were here I would do it. But it's not, and I'm not going to waste $28k on a Focus that I can't mod on my own (due to it being at it's limits).

You seem to be the one with a bad attitude here, name calling and all. The problem with Ford, imho, is that they waited way to long to introduce a decent FI car in the compact market. How much money would they have made if one out of every three SRT-4's had been this ST?

Now, we're past 250hp. Ford has a bit of catch up to do. They're still 5 years behind. And I like the ST, it just isn't the car for me.

And you're right, I shouldn't have called the douchebag a name for putting words in my mouth. Its not about having the money, people who spend it wisely don't have that problem. ;)

I went back through the posts, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you are the only one in this thread saying you can't afford one...

I guess I just don't understand what you're getting at with your posts.

if this ST feels anything like the SRT4 i will be smiling ear to ear
i loved driving the SRT4 around, i won lots of races, only down side buying it used i had to do a lot of work to keep it running, granted it was pushing it every day i drove it.

hopefully the ST is more reliable, and has a feel of even more power

Wait to the new Dart SRT-4 comes out. I'm sure Ralph Gilles knows he has to bring at least 300 hp to the table.

I totalley agree w/ you as far as Ford is behind ^^^^ For some reason Ford has some great concepts & idea's & it takes them along time to hit production. Chryler for years seems to come out w/ products pretty quickly. Now that Chrysler & Fiat are one lets see what happens.

Lot of name calling dude. I actually didn't put any words in your mouth I just boiled it down to the bare minimum. If you like buying cars from repo to save some money that's fine.
I think the new ST is a great car, but like others have said Ford is a little late to the party. I would have already put down a deposit if it was a 3-dr hatch. I'm not bashing Ford because of that I just have a very practical reason. I'm 6'4" and weigh 250#. I've been in a new focus 5-dr and can't see folding myself up every time I get in/out of a car. Hence the need for a 3-dr. I'm still hoping Ford will make that possible with the RS.

For one it's a stretch we'll see an RS and even less of a chance it will be a 3 door.

Not sure why people think the ST will be maxed out as it is , would be no problem to add 30-40 with a tune , few more mods and another 20HP , engine build and 200-300 more HP
