It's hard to say what color is going to best. I like the yellow because it's loud. All of the other colors look pretty good too (although it's hard to tell what blue will actually look like). I don't think I'm going to be too picky on color.

The pricing is fair for what you get. I guess which package I get will be dependent on how much Focus I can afford (I'm either going to go base model or fully loaded). Fully loaded looks like the way to go, it undercuts a loaded 4-door GTI by about $2000. The base model has a lot of competition for the price but still seems like a good buy.

I hope the ST lives up to the hype.

How did it go? I have a good relationship with my dealer, he said he'd take it over the phone. I'm hoping it goes through, it would be cool to get the camera (even though it's probably only $300 new, it'd be neat to be one of the first 1000 to order).

I saw it at an auto show, and - as far as I could tell - it was virtually identical to a Yellow Blaze displayed nearby...

Pretty well. Got MSRP on an ST3 with moonroof. Even asked about the allocation priority and he got me 10 (best level they can set up for a customer).
Said they'll start getting the orders together in mid August for September production. Expect it in October or November if your order now.
It's a really long wait, but it's going to be an amazing car.

How does the dealer work with allocation priority? Is it something they choose or ? I wouldn't have known to ask for that. I ordered mine tonight as well, but I will call back and ask tomorrow about that.

I'm bummed because I'd like the Cloth/Leather seats, but also want HID's. HID's are only with the ST3 package.
I'm sure if you give it time, you'll be able to find a member to swap seats with.

I priced a GTI before (5-door, 6mt, leather, sunroof) @ over $30k, you had to get the Autobahn package to get leather and it was around $5k IIRC.
