Once Ford released the ST in Europe, my mouth was watering, but now that they've given it proper power here in NA, I'm definitely going to be looking at these new Fiestas! I will probably wait until the new WRX is announced though, I'm curious about the price/weight of the new one.
No shame in waiting. As excited as I am about this car, I will be waiting until it's been out for a year or so. Let them work the kinks out and let the hype die down a bit.

I'm looking for something to trade my lamented impreza on, and this ST is almost exactly what I want.
I had the same disdain when I saw the Punto Abarth reviews. I was super bummed that we didn't have any decent micro-speeders. The 500 did not suffice, and the MCS is a pricy mess. The ST looks pretty tasty and will probably be pretty good in the comfort and maintenance dept.
