    Traded in my 2012 Focus SE Sport 5-speed, which I will still miss (great car, though nowhere near as quick as the ST).

    I sold our travel trailer a few weeks ago, then traded my 13 F150 ecoboost supercrew 4x4 longbed in this past Saturday on the FiST. Miss the ride of that truck, it also had a super comfortable power driver seat.

    Not a bad ride for what they are nowadays. When they were released in Oz (as the ST170, per Europe) they were hideously overpriced (close to A$40k on the road) but now they're around $10k, and for that they're a great car. I sold mine a couple of weeks ago. Shortest time I've ever owned a car (not even nine months) but while it provided a few tears with a fuel system issue, it also brought some post-RS chuckable fun to the equation...

    I kept my 2004 SVTF and traded money. Now I have a brilliant car that I can rely on every day, and I have a hella fun autocross/rallycross car that I can thrash and not worry about breaking my ride to work.

    That's a good way to play it. :thumbsup:

    I decided that I needed to get back to one car rather than three. Working on getting rid of the Prancing Moose now, then I'm down to just the FiST. Well, until I buy an Escort of some description... :rotfl:

    I just switched to a FiST from a Mercedes GLK. Before that I had a few STI's so wanted to try something sporty again this time.

    Finding the right forum to join took me a few weeks LOL.

    I am hoping not to trade-in my 2011 Fiesta, but rather sell it before the ST arrives. If not, I will part out my 2011 and trade-in.

    I traded in my '14 Mustang GT Brembo for the Fiesta ST.

    Before that I had a '13 Focus ST (before that I had an '08 Speed 3 and before that an '06 Speed 6).

    BRGT350, does that mean that you have ordered your FiST?

    No trade, I kept my 2003 GMC Sonoma 2.2 5spd. I love that little truck. Slow as sh** but it is manual and RWD and handles surprisingly well at speed. Being a huge UK Topgear fan and car guy, the FiST was almost a no brainer (when I finally realized its existence). While car shopping I went from WRX>G35>IS250>BMW 335>Mustang GT> Focus ST> FiST. Needed manual RWD. Showed up to ecoboost challenge and the FiST won my heart. Decided learning to drive FWD would make me a more well-rounded driver. BTW this is my first post, took delivery of white ST today (13 miles, 8 of which were my test drives). Hello everybody!

    2013 Si sedan. Loving the ST. Mongoose how are the recaros working out for ya? I just got done with a 250 mile drive. I'm still struggling with the bottom bolsters a good bit. Hoping they are going to break in.
