My Elantra GT

Hey all! Long time no see, I haven't been around the forums much lately and I'll tell you why!

I sold the foci.... Yup, my 2003 SE is gone. Thank god. With nothing but problems with the (ib5 manual) transmission, and the fear of the gutless SPI engine dropping a valve seat, I traded it in for a 2005 Elantra GT 5 speed. I've always had a thing for these so I was drawn in to it. I test drove it and was more than impressed with the power it had with the manual. I do miss the focus as it was a tad more fun to drive with its little steering wheel and super tight gearbox. But I needed something I could count on, something with more power, and I really wanted the leather and moonroof. I ultimately wanted anorher focus (ztec), but when I saw this on the lot And drove it... I fell in love. Plus it was a good deal, new timing belt and accesory belts, new clutch, and new brakes all around (4 wheel disk). 125k miles. And boy does this thing haul. Mostly due to the low gearing in the transmission.
