I've owned this for about six months at the time of writing this review. My previous car was a Mondeo ST220, which was a fantastic car, giving me trouble free motoring for 5 years and over 50k miles. The Titanium X Sport is currently the closest replacement there is, it's not an ST, it's more a luxury cruiser. It's also BIG in comparison to the Mk3, took a little while to get used to and you need to be especially careful when parking, else you'll scuff the 19" alloys.
The level of technology on offer compared to the Mk3 is a big step up, my car has adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, auto lights inc high beam, cooled seats, blind spot indicators in the wing mirrors, a fantastic sounding DAB stereo and Ford's Powershift gearbox, which is a wet dual clutch system.
The engine, now it's been Bluefinned to 260bhp, is a peach. It's quicker than my old ST without a shadow of a doubt, albeit without the V6 soundtrack. Tyre wear will be more unless you rein in the throttle, I finished off the first set of Conti 5's remarkably easily. Hopefully the replacement Michelin Pilot Super Sport's will last longer, they better do at nearly £250 a corner. They do offer far better grip though.
Overall, it's a great car, and massive step up in terms of refinement and technology over the Mk3.
