That was a seperate discussion as compared to my daily driver. The Focus ST was not available at that time, but it still would have cost thousands of dollars more than my car did. I did however also get mine custom ordered on Z-plan with the rebates they were running thanks to my grandfather who recently passed away.

I do enjoy winding it out from time to time, but mostly I just commute to and from work or to get from place to place. I'm not looking to win stop light drag races on a regular basis. Its also annoying that all the aftermarket attention is paid to the ST from the get go when the potential unit sales volume is a mere fraction of what it would be for the standard car.

I'm happy that my old car may still yet live on, but it was very noisy with no catalyst and an incessant drone at 2000 rpm, and it was very loud and annoying at 70 mph and 3000 rpm also.

Of course for 2013 Ford kind of messed with the options packages such that if you want rear disk brakes on a sedan you have to get 17" wheels as part of the 201A package with black leather seats and a bunch of other parts that were available as part of other options packages.

I meant "bounce" in the Chaney kind of way.

Test drove a ST and 2012 MS3 today. Obviously like the ST more but MS3 felt faster.

Think I'm going to keep mine for a while longer and see what the fiesta ST has to offer

sent from my galaxy sIII
