Iím debating on getting an ST or RS. Thereís obviously about a $10-13k price difference but itís been on my mind for a few months now. MPGs are a big concern since it would be my daily.

The RS.... as much as i would like to have one... the ride is very stiff and the gas milage is not good.Besides the horsepower it carries more weight.
I too am a commuter ...90 miles a day. I have a pretty sweet ride through the country to work...into Ann Arbor...but many secondary roads just plain suck...I swapped out the lowering springs back to stock...much better . .. i’m still sporting my snows till they fill the potholes. I think if I owned an RS i would probably want to keep it for special driving ...but I got a Stang sitting in the barn for that.

Loving my ST3 too. I traded in my '13 SE with the sport package for it. Got a super deal on a '18 for 23.9 new off the floor last June. Enjoy it everyday.

Thatís a big loss in MPGs though, right? Also how are you liking the manual vs. auto?

Yeah, I did loose some MPG's for sure, but fun factor was increased 10X. Love the 6 speed tranny. It's a blast to drive.

Fun is great as long as it doesnít destroy your license. Congrats though! I do love the look & style of the ST.
