Transmission Review

I'm interesting in buying a focus and have been on the search for an SVT, but I don't know whether to consider a mk2 focus. I won't settle for an automatic. I'm set on a SVT for now because of the 6 speed Getrag trans, but I don't know how the transmission feels in an mk2. Is it similar to the mk1 5 speeds where it feels like you need another gear? Is it the same transmission? We test drove a 07 zx3 with the 5-speed and I believe the 2.0L, but did not like the feel of a missing gear. Are the mk3s and zx4 STs also this way?
