I would settle for Performance Blue if the others weren't available.
Molten orange same as the Raptor= I'd do that. Why isn't the foci st offered in that color?

I had an opportunity to drive both the Fiesta ST and Focus ST at the local Ford ST Performance Academy.

I was actually about a second faster on the very tight autocross course they had set up with the Fiesta but in the one longish straight straight the Focus was definitely faster.

Seeing both cars parked next to each other the Focus is definitely a better looking car. The proportions are better. The Fiesta looks top heavy, it's to narrow for its height.

Both cars had the Recarro seats and they both reaffirmed my decision to buy the ST without Recarros. They are just to tight and hard to get in and out of for a daily driver.

The best part of the experience as I told the Ford people was the opportunity to really beat on an ST that wasn't mine. :)

Best I could tell they were the same seats. The upholstery was different but the shape and fit was the same.
