Check him out-- 2013 ST1
It might be too much of a hassle to get it to Germany :/

OH crap, for some reason I thought you were moving back to OH. I'd get it from the guy myself, but our next car really needs to be for my wife who can't drive an MT right now. I'd teach her, but I don't know if I'd want to cut her loose with a 250 hp car for her first MT experience.

I have a few more years in Germany. Woohoo! I'm getting a pretty good deal at the dealer on base. Tax-free since I'm overseas, and military discounts and what not. I don't blame you for not starting your wife out on the ST. My wife knows how to drive stick, and it makes me nervous with her driving it soon haha

Update: The car has been ordered from the dealership! They are going to make it for me while I'm deployed. It should be ready to pick up a little bit before I get home. Looks like my wife will be driving it for a few weeks! I got the blue ST1. I'm very excited. I have wanted one of these since I had my 06 ST. I've never had a turbo charged vehicle either.

You should start budgeting for a tune, I hear they really wake the car up. Not to mention you will get to properly test the car on an amazing highway bet you could get to Nuremberg in like two hours or so

Just learned the bad news. After talking to the dealer more it turns out the provisions of the warranty that comes with it are really strict. We HAVE to take it to a German mechanic every time we need a repair, we have to get inspected MONTHLY by said German mechanic, we cannot modify the car whatsoever, viloating any of this voids the warranty. My wife wants to pull the plug, but I might try to find a way around it. Any ideas?

You're in Germany and you're getting an ST over an RS? Now that's just silly.

Wow, that almost sounds like a scam.
