Thanks for adding me folks. Married fella with adult children, I'm 49. I don't own an ST YET. Will be purchasing end of March or around there. I will look for a low mileage clean used first. If I can't find the right car I will buy new. It will be a fun daily, that will do occasional track day and a couple jaunts at the drag strip. I like all the colors,so that wouldn't be a deal breaker. Would like the black wheel, red caliper option, moonroof would be nice but not required, I'm 6'2" 240 so Recaros are a no go. I would be interested in getting the car tuned, lowered a little, exhaust. So will be lurking and looking for vendors,so new to this platform so feel free to post links, tips or advice.
Thanks
Dale

Probably the smallest thing on that lot LoL. Being in a valley (Cinti) we got some some steeply sloped streets and driveways, high curbs. But you're likely experienced enough to know the ins/outs of lowering on a daily driver. Had to cater-corner out of a cousin's drive way to keep from scraping on a stock setup last weekend. (meant backing up the street) I have scraped visiting my Brother's... and ended up literally driving up the sidewalk to another drive way to get out. (glad his neighbor understood)

I'm sure it was the smallest lol. I'm 49 and from Cincy and have had several lowered vehicles, yes it makes things a challenge. I now live in Sardinia in brown County, what part of SW Ohio are you at?

Yep, Magnetic Grey, Black Wheels and Moon Roof are extremely common, but cool looking. Ask me how I know.......
I was pretty flexible, this is the spec I wanted and lucked out since there aren't many new left. My preference was grey,Black,White, Orange in that order. I like the orange but my wife said no pumpkins in the driveway lol. I wanted a moonroof but would have been okay if I didn't find one. thought the car just looked a lot better with back wheels and red calipers. i f I couldn't find it I would have just painted them myself. the dealership was fantastic in the process.

I love the Hot Pepper Red Metallic the most, but it wasn't on the ST. Of course, it wasn't my favorite until I saw it in person. Pics make it look way too red, but in person, wow...it pops orange and/or red, depending on the angle of the sun as you walk around it.

Agreed it's a great color we didn't get much choice on the 19 FiST for sure.

Okay you're about an hour East of Cinti. Should be significantly flatter out there. We're bout midway across cross-county highway.
