After reading this thread I went out and drove an ST a couple weeks back. Great car, really enjoyed it. I couldn't ever buy one due to snow in my area, but I was really impressed with how quickly the turbo spooled and how well it handled - I expected it to have more body roll than my WRX with bars/links, but it had less. The interior was alright, nothing spectacular except the Recaro seats. It also has a great shifter with a pretty tight pattern. If you haven't gone out and driven one, I highly recommend it.
