Hello everyone I'm new here and have news!!

Hey people I'm a mustang V6 owner.

Mustangs are very nice cars are probably faster than al lot of focis here. but I looking for a new car; a comfortable one. I was looking at the focus ZX3. I went to a dealer today and I tried a ZX3 with the 2.3 ZETEC engine that has 145HP. and I was impresed at how fast it was compared to what i thought it would be. even though is not as fast as my stang. It was almost as fast hehehe. well I'm going to trade mine in to get a brand new 2004 ZX3 black with all the options exept for the sound because I like doing that myself. Well alot of you guys would think that a mustang is probably nicer but It really isnt. they are noisy and very uncomfortable. and the tranny is not that good as well.(manual tranny) the zx3 i tried was manual as well and the tranny was a lot smother so keep it going people focuses are awesome!! and they have a lot more parts for focuses than for v6stangs.

peace.

Hey!!! Well, good luck on your decision! I think you'll be pleased!!!

I must say that my automatic car is difficult to tell how it drives cuz I have low-profile tires, but it's still very fun and I love my car. My boyfriend on this site, has a manual. Ridin in his car is sweeet. Pretty fun. I wish I learned how to drive a manual, but he'd never let me and I don't blame him!!

Welcome to Focus Fanatics!!!

hehehe calm down. I have full exhaust system, CAI, pulleys, gears, and a chip. running 230 HP at the rear wheel. so I guess I would beat a new foci or slightly modified. but it really doesnt matter I'll be a foci owner soon.

thanks.. now calm down hehehe
