Ok just got finished riding in the ST with a professional driver. All I have to say is where are you able to sell souls at! Great take off feels faster then a GTI and the handeling is great. With the upgraded suspension in my car won't stand a chance against this car. Sold!!!!

I can't wait to hear everyones review when they get theirs, to me just seems hard to choke down that much money on a Focus, when you are up there in 5.0 territory with real power. Just saying!

Ira (imccrea) called me on Monday and from what I think he said, Ford isn't going to build the ST3 package this year. I had the choice to change my order but I didn't so now i won't get an ST until build 2, which he said was probably going to be around May of next year. Anyone else with an ST3 ordered get a call?

It is a problem because in Canada we only have one version ..and it's with HID headlight and full leather..other things that are in option and can be add are...sunroof,better sound system and NAV.

So does that mean we will not have a FOCUS ST this year? I doubt... I will never buy a car without HID so I hope they will find a solution fast.
