I recently made a video in iMovie. I used the same Garageband pre-made song in the background. You have no idea how tired I am of hearing it.
And yet, I couldn't mute it, for the occasional sound of squealing tires and engine noise.
... Occasional.

What I really, really want to see, is a "professional driver on a closed course" with the Focus ST. Whip the tail out through the turns, go way too fast, etc. I want to see this car pushed to its limits so I know how far I could push it if I got one.

so ford's going to have an st simulator game at some auto shows. Best time gets to drive an st to the xgames.

You're all going down!


Also, i just ordered the die-cast focus st. It's backordered (of course).
first, ford said that i could expect the die cast focus st next week. Then next month. Now sometime this summer. They're really consistent with those delays!
hahahaha

Has anyone had the opportunity to sit in one at one of the Auto Shows? I'm interested in knowing more about the interior and seats. Are the seats in the Blue ST the stock cloth recaros? If yes how were they? Has anyone sat in the full or partial leather recaros? How were they?

How about interior quality, fit and finish?

Thank you.

I'm sure it'll be great. I just don't care for the center stack= to much! I'd go for the stock recaro's. I do like the rear sway bar thou, as far as the mount's on the spindle's. I don't care for the same brake biased ETVC as the lesser Foci's have. I know Ford is trying real hard to cut cost's thou, on the ST. I'd rather have a torsen w/o the "sound tube" & put a blowoff valve on it. I'd rather hear that. Ford should get this down to 25.000, for the base car. Who want's a "active sound symposer system" over performance, huh?

I'm sure as soon as it's released, Top Gear will put it to the test.
They did with the last gen ST.

Just saw the ST at the chicago auto show today. Its a VERY nice car! The grill is even bigger in person than it looks in the pics! The rear end is the bread-winner for me.

The blue one did have the cloth recaro's and it looked very very nice! If I ever have a work commute more than the 9 miles I drive now I would consider getting one of these instead of the mustang GT. I just hope Ford keeps the price low!
