I couldn't stand it myself, and in a small car I think it's pointless, but that's just me. My last vehicle was an Explorer Sport Trac, it had a lot more room in the back for stuff, which is part of why I went with the hatch.

Ford should offer an ST kit so people could make a sedan ST if they wanted to

How do you make a kit out of that? An appearance kit? performance kit? Isn't the entire drivetrain different?

I was thinking a turbo kit, but I guess the standard focus drivetrain might not be able to handle the extra power without a ton of more mods, so scrap that thought XD

Not to mention that the ST would no longer be the "ST" and Ford looses that niche in the market.
