Where abouts are you in NY?

If you're question is Focus vs SRT-4, well with the FI the SRT-4 wins in a straight line, the Focus is more fun in the twisties...
Can't speak for FI on the Focus since I don't intend to take that route, but there are plenty of mods out there....

hehe definatly I will post in the FI, but setting aside that, I would just love to have a fun car overall, nothing to crazy, but still want to have the options of working on the car hehe, or getting major parts installed, like anything ECU related etc. Oh by the way, im in new york , Valley Stream. On long island. What about yourself?

one other aspect you may want to consider is vehicle cost and the insurance on each. srt4 is considered a sports car so insurance is pretty steep sometimes.
for an overall daily driver the focus would probably be the better choice imo. going fi on it will definitely put a smile on your face and wont have any drivability problems. would be cheaper than an srt too
