    Thoughts? Cool car and I wish Mercedes would bring it to the U.S., but that seems unlikely. And given their price point in Europe, it would likely be more than I'd be willing to spend anyway. Dammit.

    Certainly a potent weapon, but comes with the price tag as well.

    The real question is will they have fixed the inherent understeer and will it drift?

    If they sold it here, I'd buy it. Sick of cheap economy cars.

    I've driven a 2017 one. It's a blast.... Great car. But, agree on the understeer comment. I would love to see it more towards a 50/50 torque delivery (F/R).

    Good lord that is a lot of power from a 2l.
    Keeping it pinned down while all cylinders are -6 is not good practice

    Money comes and goes, RS don't.
    Dude your life is also ticking away.
    Buy th damn car and mod away.

    The ST is an ST that's all it will ever be.

    It has an engine made by the same processes as ours but uses more exotic materials and has both air to air and an liquid to air intercoolers.
