Hi there! Happy to be here, lemme introduce myself.

My name is Barry, I'm in Tampa, FL, and just purchased a 2013 ST2 in Oxford White. Unfortunately, it's in the shop right now, so I don't have a good picture yet, but I'm hoping the Ford dealership addresses the 1-2/2-3 shift-bang TSB, and they definitely should be addressing the clanking front end caused by incorrect grease used on the front pass-side strut (forget the TSB off the top of my head).

I'm coming from an old but lovely 2006 VW GTI. Long story, just was getting too expensive and wasn't worth it. I think the biggest difference I've identified between the two is clutch engagement. On the ST it's kind of on-off, there's very little middle ground. On the VW it seemed much more gradual.

Anyways, looking at a Stage 1 here in the next 6 months, definitely considering muffler delete/axle back exhaust, as well as a few exterior additions.

HMU South Fla folks!
