Ford focus ST

Took one of these for a rip today. Blew my socks off! That's a lot of car for the price. I'm in the market for another car, and have taken this and the speed 3 out. The speed 3 was just a touch faster, but as far as refinement goes, I currently drive a 2005 3 ( to go along with my truck,) and if feels just as cheap. The focus put me back in the seat all the way through 3rd, which is surprising for such a sleeper. Not sure why ford isn't pushing these things, I think they are great little cars. The tester I took out was the "tangerine" - god damn what an ugly colour. I'm gonna go with black ( to match the truck) or the silver. if anyone has a few extra minutes on there hands, , stop in a test one of these. You will be as surprised as me.

lol..yep that's the one. tint, eibach pro-kit and 19" are first. hated the colour at first, but Woodstock ford gave me a deal I couldn't pass up. Really just glad to get rid of my mazda. The wife Is the kid chauffeur , (as I work way to much) so I drive the small car the majority of the time. Hated he mazda, even with the 5-speed felt I always had my foot to the floor. Although that still may be the case, ( lol) atleast I won't feel like I'm gonna get ran over when I jump on the highway.

Congrats on the ST, sharp looking ride, my sister bought a black on black Titanium hatchback with the other style five spokes, and it's a great car.

Nice car. Ford did a nice job on the re-design of the Focus (Fusion too). Have fun with it.

Thanks Guys. Have been a Gm guy all my life, but I guess now I'm officially converted. Honestly, GM has nothing that I was remotely interested in. KIA makes nicer, better value cars now. I am happy with ford, hopefully this cars is just as good as the truck's been.
