I actually ordered an SFE originally, but I canceled the order just in time, and ordered the ST. I really wanted a car I could take on the highway and decent speeds, as well as good good mileage. There are a few trade offs, but the ST offers much more power, better handling, and more fun. The gas mileage is not to shabby. The SFE works great for someone who needs a city car, but I need to enjoy the open road!
