Well, it’s been a long couple weeks though the ST has been a fun car to drive.Well it’s been a couple of weeks, so how are you liking the ST so far? I’m in the market for an ST or RS, depending on what Ford decides to do with my DPS6 Focus & how much money I get back.

This is a really great post.At this point, Focus ST's are only available as preowned cars, so if you want one, you have to select one from what's available. The cars are all the same (mechanically) but for me- I really wanted the Recaro seats in the ST3 (and I'm 6'4" 190 lbs). I also appreciate the larger center screen, the footwell lights and the directional headlamps (which all came as part of the ST3 package) and the other features- but the seats are awesome, and hold you in really tight when you throw the car into a corner. I just knew I'd think about it every time I sat in the car. If that's not important to you, then an ST1 will make you just as happy. As a fellow gearhead, my advice to you is that you should not rush into a car purchase just because the car has low mileage, and may be nearby. Get what you really want (or as close to it as possible). ST2's and ST3's are available all around the country on the preowned market, and if the options are important to you, you may have to travel to get what you want- but buying a car is a rare treat, and is an event that as enthusiasts makes life sweeter. You only live once...
Nice car, that maxton rear is calling my name! Did you get gloss black or carbon fiber? Does that part separate from the rest so it can be painted or has to be masked off? The ST1 Moonroof I found one! Jumped on it about 2 months ago. With that purpose, already had those recaros not for me for a daily. The sync 2 hurt my feelings. Sync 3 is way better, but I went with a 2016 ST1 moonroof for the sole purpose of a clean slate platform.I just turned my ST1 into a ST4 so it's better than everybody elses, wish. Seriously though I wanted the ST without the options. I'm happy with my seats, don't care about the stereo and would have took a sun roof if available by itself. I did spend the money not spent on a few goodies though.
