After thinking I wouldn't be able to get an ST, I actually got one yesterday and it's the exact one I wanted! There's only a couple things that I have noticed that could have been a little better (so far lol)

The trunk is way smaller than my 2011 hatchback. For some reason, the piece you pull up to get to the spare tire is way too high up. I think it's really unnecessary. It's hard to explain what I'm talking about unless you see the 2 in comparison in person. My hatchback had 2 12 inch subs, I don't think you can even fit any in the ST because the height is so different.

The other thing is I don't like how the my ford touch is set up. I hate how it has the screen split into 4 sections, it just looks stupid. I looked at the display options and I don't think there is any way you can change it (does anyone know if you can?) At least you can put any picture as your wallpaper (as long as it's 800 x 350 or something like that)

My girlfriend has a Chevy Cruze, and I like the MyLink setup way better than My Touch. Here are some pics of how I wish My Touch looked.

the floor level drops down to about the same place it is on your 2011. I moved the dual-height-floor-wtf to the lowest level shorter after getting the ST and find that it is much better. I still lose things under the rear seats, so I will have to figure out something better. A good option would be to buy the rear cargo floor out of a 2011-13 Fiesta that a rally team is gutting for competition.

MFT, well, it is what it is. It takes time to get used to the system.
I didn't even know it could be lowered, I will have to check it out. Is it easy to do? I haven't really looked at it other than once since I just got the car.
Thanks a lot, I will try that when I get home. MFT is getting a little better as I get used to it. I just don't like the layout. It's also kind of hard to use because if you don't press exactly on the right spot it will click the wrong thing and it get's irritating. It's hard to press corner icons as well. Isn't the latest update already installed? I checked the website and it says I have the latest. Is there a way to check it from MFT in the car?
When did the update come out? Because I'm already registered on the site and it says my SYNC is up to date as of August 19, 2013
I couldn't either until I realized you have to pull it towards you instead of trying to push it back towards the seats.
Aha! That was it.

That gap below the seats is hilarious, though.
Yea that part sucks, Just have to make sure you don't put anything small back there cause it would probably roll under the seats
I'd rather not waste $100 on a big piece of rubber. I can deal with that gap lol
