I haven't seen a single red one yet, I think the red looks sharp as hell.

I have to agree on the red, but I specifically stayed away from it and the tangerine scream as I felt like they would draw too much attention... performance blue hits the spot nicely =)

Performance Blue is a strange animal. It looks purely blue on all the internet pictures I see (like trackhermit's, which looks beautiful) but when I went to see one in person, it looked a lot different. Too purple-ish for my taste. Also strange is that Ingot Silver looks so much BETTER in person than it does on the internet.

The ST1 seems to be a hard-to-find car right now in any color. There's one Racing Red in Dallas, but I'm done with red cars (owned 3 bright red cars already). So, white it is.

Love the way this looks:

St

I got my 2013 ST a month ago.It is completely different than my 02 SVT.Most obvious is the torque,it comes on strong in any gear.I would have to keep my SVT in high revs to get the most out of it.The ST has power down low and well past 5000 rpms.The brakes are awesome slowing this thing down past 100.The handling is nothing short of amazing.But one thing I already noticed shifting at redline is thumping motor mount[rear].This will probably be first upgrade.Turn the traction control off and it gets alot more interesting but it allows you to get a little more out of it.This car feels a bit faster than many Mags results.Also the boost comes on very quickly. As with the Steeda 1/4 mile test 14.41 is pretty good for stock.I believe the factory tune is very conservative.Once Ford or other companies come out with a hotter tune this car should be easy sub 14 s in the quarter.

I'm Loving my ST, at first i thought the seats were too narrow but after driving it a while they have formed to me and all is well. I have a small rattle in the sunglass holder, but thats due to it having two pairs of sungalsses in it lol. If i take those out, the rattle goes away. Mine is a well optioned ST2 so it has the navigation 8inch screen 10 speaker sony system, and it has the sunroof. I liked the look of the ST3, but couldnt justify the price difference for such few additions. I got the FSWERKS tune a few weeks ago and WOW, what a difference. I loved the car before, now i really really love it lol. So far i dont have any complaints. When i stay out of it and drive it civil like i average about 29 mpg with a large amount of highway, but when im romping on it it goes down to about 25 mpg lol.

Ha! So much for being 'done with red cars'. Picked up on 1/3.
