Yes, and my ST2 order is sitting somewhere on someone's desk. I don't have access to lots in Germany, I have to order.

The Ford Dealership had an ST in black sitting in front of the Dealership. I had to stop in and take a look. I have a 2012 SE w/sport pkg, winter pkg, convenience pkg, sunroof. I have fixed it up a bit adding tinted windows, splash guards, body molding (color matches paint).
Anyhoo... The ST looks good no doubt. Just enough to distinguish it from other Ford Focus hatchbacks. The sales person came out and asked if I wanted to test drive. OHHH yeah... Away we went. Exhaust sounds are pleasant from a car like this. Fast, just plain fast. This engine wants to go and it will go.. Price is a bit steep right now. Probably because of all the press.. I of course was asked if I wanted to trade up.. Nope I said. I am going on 50 and would probably look a fool in this boy racer... So, I piled in my 2012 Focus SE hatch and drove away with a smile...

Do you really look that much different in SE vs ST?
95% of population will see no difference and 5% would admire the taste for performance.

Mmmmm, maybe not when you mashed the pedal and put somebody's wannabe in the rearview mirror LOL. I would think about a sedan version if it were offered (it would be a perfect "sleeper car"), but my SE sedan is fast enough to get me a ticket or two if I attempted to get too greedy with the speed, even though the nearby 85mph toll road is tempting. And I'm 56. Still have a wild boy inside, I just choose my moments to let him come out and play Take care!
