    Posting these kinds of stats against the Focus ST is basically what got me band from the Focus ST forums. They even deleted all my posts. Apparently they didn't care for my opinion. ;)

    Yeah, I could see how showing off how awesome our car is would hurt some butts.

    There's a green FoST that looks like the guy might of plasti dipped it, but I wanted to race him just for the hell of it

    To be honest I would be happy with either, awesome to see Ford making and sharing with the US market, some fast hatches.

    Very much agree, I would love hot hatches to really take off here in the US

    Wow, that's just sad. "Hey guy, you're welcome on our forum... as long as your opinion's the same as mine and I agree with what you post here." Sheesh. I guess some guys can't differentiate between being a fan and being a narrow-minded fanboy. :meh:

    With that said, the Fiesta ST was a better fit for me, and I'd buy it again in a heartbeat, but if I needed a slightly larger car, I think I'd be thrilled to be behind the wheel of a Focus ST as well. A huge thumbs up to Ford for making these cars available here in the States. :cool:

    Both are very good cars, I think. I much preferred the feel and size of the Fiesta over the Focus, though. Were there not a FiST, I'd probably be happy with a FoST, but the FiST was/is pretty much exactly what I wanted. The only thing I'd change about mine would be to make the red a slightly darker, more-red red.

    ^ I think we're kindred spirits, Jim. On paper, the FiST was exactly what I was looking for in a car, and in person, it hasn't disappointed me. The paint is rather odd, though, as half the time (depending on the light), the blue looks strikingly purple. Haha! :biglaugh:

    Untill you park it next to a purple car then it looks Bluer than Blue

    And when you're doing your Linda Ronstadt impersonation, Rod, it looks Blue Bayou!

    related:
    Just left a Focus ST group because posting Consumer Reports finding the Fiesta ST better than Focus ST was "fanaticism" and the "reviewer must be some kind of uneducated idiot"... I'm like... you're talking about Consumer Reports, dude. Consumer Reports doesn't screw around.

    Got tired of haterade about "190 mousepower"... -_- coming from Mustang guys would be one thing but to hear it from the FoST crowd seriously ticks me off.

    People tend to hate what is better that they don't have

    Hate to be play devil's advocate here but what did you expect? Poking at them that your car's better is always going to get emotional responses. You just look like a troll when you do that.
