Stephan,

Its not a Ford made video. It looks to be produced by a outside company that was give the chance to test drive. I would not take this video to heart.

I like this very a lot, because they show the engine, they show the interior. But, WHO KNOWS! Those could be pre-production cars. That ST logo on the shifter may still be included in the production version.

Remember this thread? http://fordstnation.com/focus-st-interior/180-marketing-email-na-market-interior-highlights.html

Racing-inspired aluminum shifter and pedals..Stephen you will like this..but this is a email for the NA Market..
We don't even know for sure, but I would not count that ST out until you see the car on the Ford.com website via Build a ST, until you can rule out that they did not include the logo on the shifter.



ST Shifter in that Image, this was sent to NA Market Customers last week..... Hang in there man

The video is crappy quality, but its cool. :)

I think the video is nice. Obviously the car is getting closer to production or they wouldn't have let an outside company or whoever make this video at all.

Re: The ST logo on the shifter. Stephan, I realize you would really like that logo on the shifter, but I'm not sure if we'll see it. The painted logo or emblem is another manufacturing process, that takes time and money. One less process and one less component, even as small as a decal or paint will make the car less expensive. Will it not look as good? No, it won't, but it'll still feel and drive the same. Most of the time your hand is covering it anyway. The Mazdaspeed3 doesn't have a logo on the shifter either.

Dan is 100% right. Stephen, you can get a sticker made and put it on there, or even yet. Thats what customization is all about man. Remove the part, have it a professional put the logo there for you.

all the possibilities...I love it.. :D

Also did anyone notice that the hood fitmit in the front does not sit right? It looks to have to much of a gap. But who knows, just like everything else we can't get upset about something thats not official yet.

I would like to have an illuminated ST logo on the shift knob, would look cool at night!

Yes it definitely would, but I tend to agree with dem778. Automotive appearance parts are a pain for everyone involved on the manufacturing and purchasing end, both for Ford and the supplier to Ford.

I personally think all the ST logos everywhere on the interior are too much. Enough with the badges already

No sorry guys. I know this a detail, but a very fine one. if there is no logo like in the vid, the knob looks like a 10USD knob from ...don´t know your cheap markets... Anyway this looks shitty and thats the reason why ford will do a logo on it as on the fist pictures.

These 2 cars are for sure the exhibition cars that we already saw enough.
I really hope that we cannot order such a ST

Man you are picky! If your ST doesn't come with a ST on the shift knob, and ours does (us market) i'll ship you one when ford lets us buy parts for it. Im sure you can order that part. :)

You know some of those interior effects are packed based. The 2012 Fiesta lets you get color inserts on the leather seats, and interior plates.

Maybe the ST is like that. :)

I remember the hood fitment being noted by a poster on another blog, this some 6 months ago I think. I specifically looked at it on the blue model at the L.A. Auto Show in November, and the gap didn't seem excessive. But it definitely does show in the video.
