Nice find! thanks. Always love to read comparisons between the two. Used to wonder if I should have gone for the focus for almost the same $, but glad I didn't. The Fiesta really is so light, tossable and razor sharp. I also prefer the stiffer suspension.
I was originally looking at Focus ST as well, but after a spirited test drive in the Fiesta, I decided the light, agile feel was worth sacrificing space. Plus it was way cheaper and gas mileage better.
