Thanks, I actually decided on manual before I learned about the DCT transmission issues, but I'm glad I did. It'll be interesting to see if Ford makes any changes to DCT for 2014, I'm sure FF will be watching.

Rado Grey is the name of the color as offered on the European ST.



It's unfortunately a $495 option that was not made available on the 2013 ST despite being sold in Europe already.

Looks much nicer than the flat black version sold by Ford Racing.

That's the exact car I'd order on my way home today if I wasn't so upside down on the SE. Rolling debt into it wasn't the worst thing I ever did, but wow, I should have waited a few months til the special offers on the ST's hit. Maybe end of year this or next year will be the ticket for an ST of my very own.

How's your new one treating you Suss?

I like it, but I'm still waiting on the parts for the engine mount TSB (13-6-10).

It's doing a little bit worse on fuel than I was in the SEL, but I was never really able to get great mileage on my commute anyway given traffic conditions and or speed.

Getting stuck in traffic is not much fun in any car, but at least the seats are fairly comfortable.

I've already put close to 4000 miles on it in the time I've had it, test drove it around 25 miles, picked it up at 30. Unlike with my special ordered 12 which came off the truck with 3 miles on it, I put 9 on the test drive and picked it up with 18 miles (although they recorded 30 or 33 miles on the warranty start line on the papers).

Apart from being tired, sore and jet lagged Sunday night returning from helping my Uncle move one of their cars across the country from Greensboro, North Carolina, to Phoenix, Arizona I couldn't wait to get back behind the wheel of the ST after 3 hard days of driving their leased Volt.

The Volt was a little bit fun to fling down the mountains though as I could turn the downward momentum either into increased speed, or increased electricity while trying to maintain speed down the mountains in Arizona.

It wasn't much of a "relaxing" vacation, but it was still kind of fun to take a road trip though.

I would put 6-8 weeks closer to 8 as I bet the ST isn't a priority but definitely at least 6 weeks.
Techman what kind of pricing and financing did you get.
