Test Drove a zx5 today

ok so me and a bud(eric) went and test drove a 03 zx5 today at the local ford dealer
thing is fully loaded, moonroof, all leather, beige interior, black exterior, 5 speed, tinted windows,5 spoke svt wheels s2 wing, pretty nice to say the least, anyways i drove it first and it seemed a bit easier to shift then my 5 speed dura

well we took it on some nice road to test it out, and i was surprised how well it got up and went, not as fast as my dura but was still nice, i dont really push my dura so at times it seemed faster, also the hdanling was pretty good on it, took it to a very twistie part cuz i said that these things are awesome handlers, and which he didnt belive, but when i hit those f'n turns he was holding to the OH SHIT handle lol
but thats the 1st zetec 5speed i ever drove and was impressed, i kinda like it a lil more then my dura, all around cuz had more options and such, but im not gonna steal it away from him, he really wants it now, hes more of a VW kind of kid but his mind changed fast after the ride.

so dealer wants 11 for it i talked him down to 9,6 cuz im awesome lol so hopefully he buys it, things pretty slick looking

but thats my zetec event that happened today and really enjoyed myself, so YAY

Looks good with the svt rims. I testdrove a green kona edition zx3 with auto tranny and zetec, and I wasn't impressed at all. My spi is quite a bit faster (because of my mods). I was expecting more from the zetec, but i know they can become beasts with engine work. I just wasnt impressed with a stock one.
