Fellow gear head here! I just recently bought a 2008 black focus se. I'm so excited because I haven't had a new focus since 2004 when I got a brand new zx3 off the lot.
Maybe one day I'll do some upgrades, (as I am financing and will be with the vehicle for at least 5 years) - but for now I'm enjoying the fact that I went from a reliable 2000 ford escort [with 234,000 miles] to this baby.
I have owned many cars in my day.... 1987 Pontiac Fiero, 2005 Chevy Blazer, 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2005 Lotus Elise (my favorite)... I clearly have an addiction. I think this site is great and I am looking forward to many delightful conversations with everyone.
BTW, girl power rules.
I can change my own oil, flat tire, etc. It's just funnier to woe the boys at the service center.
