Fiesta ST Vs. Lancer Evolution

I am considering these two cars heavily. Has anyone been an Evolution owner? I would be buying a new 2014 model. The ST looks to be a great car, but I am unsure if the HP will be an issue, as I am coming from an e36 m3. I have also never owned a FWD car before, so that is a tradeoff.

Thoughts? The Evolution will be discontinued soon, so this may be a now or never type of decision. Looking for input!

Also, has anyone seen a white fiesta with the molton recaro interior? It is buildable on ford's site, but I have yet to see one in my search.

hmm i wonder why that is! I got my car at invoice plus 1500 in rebates so I was satisfied!
Wouldn't that be invoice "minus" $1500 in rebates? Great price btw.
If I am taking the cash rebate, what would be the APR. That's the question. Trying to figure out which one is cheaper.
Now I will let the grape ferments ...
If you go with Ford Financing to get that extra $500 off, the APR is 4.9%. You can then refinance through your bank after 90 days. Most banks I believe have about a 1.99% rate so it's worth it. The dealer actually mentioned this scenario while I was talking with them and crunching numbers. Check with your dealer though as it varies as to where you live. In SoCal, they can get $2000 off instead of the $1500 where I live on the East Coast. This includes financing through Ford. So their rebate is $1500 without financing. My dealer said Ford gives better incentives to larger volume dealers/areas. If true, this doesn't make sense to me as it would help with sales in smaller towns with less disposable income compared to SoCal. Ugh.

For those who care enough to follow my process, I m doing the 1 month sitting period. I always do that. If I still want FiST in late February, I ll get it.
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what is the 1 month sitting period?
