maybe this car would look more appealing if it were a different color [shrug]

I would stick with the regular ST as it already had all the good stuff you would want anyway. This almost looks like a ricer 16 year old project who would paint all the parts which come off the easiest, except that this was done to look like carbon fiber.

Ford won't make an AWD Focus ST or RS as it would add too much weight and then would require more power to over come the weight which will generally require adding more weight etc. Its a viscous cycle and Ford had determined that it wasn't worth it.

I still want the wheels. I haven't found a comparable wheel for the ST yet. I think that style is perfect for our cars.
