I know the feeling. Those Porsche guys get really bothered.

Actually the WRX is quicker to 60mph than the STI since it's got a taller 2nd gear and seems to deal with more mods and less issues and considerably cheaper.

And with it's rakish rear window I thought the HB Focus has a slight resemblence to the WRX instead of the flat back hatches ala Mazda3. I think that's what made me attracted to the Focus initially. Is it my imagination? Maybe
