I chose the Black Edition.
I tried the ST today before I left for home in my new car, and the ST is a great car.
Particularly for the younger drivers I must say, more committed, harder ride, louder engine and exhaust note, more aggressive body kit and a very nice leather interior.

As for the remap query, the 140 BHP is gained from map tweaks, turbo waste gate changes, valve timing changes and the gear ratio alterations enable best use of those changes.
So I'd guess straight power output could be matched by a remap, but the beauty of the Black/Red Editions is the manner of the power delivery across the power band.

Have to say the Black Edition has impressed me so far.
Useful reversing sensors with a display to show risk.
And the trip from Stoke to Telford saw 54 mpg compared to the ZSE's 43 over the same trip, which was mostly B roads not motorway.
The extra BHP is noticeable, makes the car a very nice drive on the revised gearbox ratios.

Brake pad dust on cars with disc brakes is normal. It can be corrosive when wet so make a point of washing the wheels properly every week and use a good wheel polish.
Nice looking rims set a car off beautifully.
