Finally I can stop my daily Internet search to try and find info on the Focus ST. I gained a lot of interest in this car after I went on a test drive with a coworker in a 2012 focus. I was very impressed with the layout and build quality in the new focus. I had heard grumblings about the US finally getting a sports model of the Focus but didn't think much of it until that test drive. After that and some research I was sold, I have always wanted to buy American but felt they didn't come through in the sports compact segment. My first car was a 93 Honda Prelude that I loved then I had a 2008 civic Si which I also loved now I drive a Infinti G35x and as much as I love it I miss my sports compacts so I have to go back. Plus with adding 20mi each way to my commute when I moved to IL the MPGs are killing me. So I look forward to hearing all the info you guys get and hopefully providing some of my own.
