    Just picked up a '14 ST with all the main options in Tuxedo Black yesterday.

    I wasn't quite planning on buying one so soon, but the deal was so good that I jumped on it. (They gave me a way over blue book price on my trade-in and accepted a price and APR I thought was insanely low for the new car.)

    I traded in a '12 Mazda2 with some mods that had seen a pretty decent amount of track time. The ST is the car I always wished my 2 had been, and while I'm still a big fan of Mazda, it was Ford who made the car I was dreaming of. I've owned like 15 cars at this point, but this is my first "domestic" and it's interesting seeing a Ford badge in front of me. Endless gushing reviews in the UK car magazines I read definitely helped me go for it, and the last straw was Grassroots Motorsports' review of it last month.

    Anyway, can't wait to hit the track with it, just need to break it in and get some good tires on it. I was already outlapping the less experienced Evos, S2000s, and M3s at Streets of Willow in my 100HP Mazda2, I expect to tear the place up with twice the power and a better suspension!

    Oh cool, I'll go sign up there later.

    I just saw that run thread, if definitely like to go if it fits my schedule. My ST has already been to the canyons twice in two days, I actually headed straight there from the dealer!
