I've had my ST for a couple of months now and it's a real blast to drive. My wife got the basic model and I got the ST and I'd recommend the ST for it has a much tighter feel for the road. (and a bit quicker). I haven't had a 5 speed in yrs and I forgot how much fun they are while getting better gas mileage also. The heated leather seats are a real plus and the stereo really cranks!
Smooth ride, real nice factory stereo, heated seats/mirrors.
