    Stopped in at the local Ford dealer with my ST ( not where I bought the car) and was immediately "swarmed" by sales people wanting to see what the ST looks like in person. It seems we belong to a somewhat exclusive club ( at least for now )

    Even when everyone that wants one gets theirs it's still going to be fairly exclusive. TBH, I really don't see that many Fiestas driving around town, so the likelihood of spotting a Fiesta ST in the wild goes down even more. Only ones I've seen is the one at the dealership and the Ecoboost Challenge ones. Fiestas just aren't as popular in America because of their small size, which is really odd because something like the FR-S and Mini seem to be widely more popular for the most part and they are at least as small if not smaller... Focus STs will always be more popular as regular Focus' are selling pretty well and I see almost too many of them. I've seen one Focus ST in the wild confirmed and I believe I've seen another, but I'm not positive on it. So even those really aren't that commonly seen.

    Same here. I've seen 2 Focus ST's, in the 2 years I've lived here.

    Considering how many regular Foci I see (tons) compared to how many Fiestas (I can count them on one hand), plus the fact I have the first Fiesta ST in Nevada, I might be the only one for the foreseeable future.

    I see about one focus st a day here in Orlando. Many more non st. But seeing a fiesta is rare and I have yet to see a fiesta st outside of the dealership.

    There are a handful of Focus STs around here, which I see rarely. But there are an awful lot of standard Foci. If the ratio for the FiST is similar, I may not ever see another one. :)

    Isn't Ford only expecting to sell 3-5,000 this year? That isn't much.

    I feel pretty cool lol cause I have yet to see anyone driving an ST in my area. There are only a few at the dealerships around here too.

    Well, if we're rare then we're sleepers by default. I'm okay with that.

    I've seen a few Focus STs around here on the road but so far no Fiesta STs except mine and the cars at the EcoBoost challenge event.

    There are Foci, Fiestas and Hundai's look-alike around here but the STs are rare.

    I like it, almost no one knows what it is, I think I surprise a lot of people, especially morons driving BMWs (roughly 97.3% of BMW drivers).

    At the same time the car doesn't look too racy, so far I've had zero unwanted interest from the cops despite my fuel economy average of 24mpg (with lots of highway miles).

    I have been to 2 different dealers, one who thought my 2011 was a ST and another that thought the ST was a regular Fiesta.
