As I said in a previous post, I ordered my ST3. I got an email saying it's been accepted and a confirmation number.
What now? Do I get a VIN and a build date in an email later on?

Nice car but you can't compare a Focus ST to a Mustang. It would be like me comparing my 2004 Corvette to a Mustang ! Not the same type of car.

you're right...there is no comparison, in any aspect even to the v6
st base, $23,700 - 252hp@19psi - 14.8 1/4mile - 3220lbs - .95g skid pad - 32mpg hwy

mustang v6 base, $22,200 - 305hp na - 13.9 1/4mile - 3391lbs - .96g skid pad (6 spd manual with optional performance package $1995($24,195 total)) - 31mpg hwy

not to mention the insurance rates on the mustang are over 100 bucks every 6 months cheaper in my case (figure that one out)
and run your 04 vet against a new 5.0. you may get a surprise.

comparison class is now over...

Just placed an order on a performance blue ST3 with moonroof on the Xplan.

Was told about 8-10 weeks. Cant wait!!

I had an 07 ST (with the street appearance package) , a 2008 Mustang GT, then a 2011 Shelby GT500 (just traded for the 2013 ST3)

I'd be interested in the test/review these specs came from because I've not found any full reviews that list the 1/4 mile and skid pad for this model.

Congrats!

I was told my order would be 6-8 weeks and my ST3 is supposed to be finished being built on Wednesday which will be 6 weeks, plus the delivery time. And I still can't wait!
