New Car!

So my 2000 spi focus has been showing it's age, and I figured working for a Ford dealership has to have some benefits...so tomorrow I am picking up my brand new 07 ZX4 SES. It has all the bells and whistles. I couldn't afford the ST but this really is the next best thing. And after I mod it out it will be even better. It's not even in my driveway yet and I'm in love with it. Sorry if this seems like a pointless thread but I'm way stoked and I figure where else could I find people that understand the pure passion that is owning a Focus than here on the BEST Focus forum there is? I can't wait to get it on the streets...there are only 2 other Foci in my area with the street appearance kit, and they're both Infra Red...mines is Pitch Black...I finally get to stand out!

I was going to go with a SES with sunroof and leather but then I realized I could get a ST for a little less. So I went with the ST. Performance over Looks/Luxury.

I'll get some pics up as soon as I can. And I'm not worried about power. It'll be stock for a while, but let's not forget I have been driving an spi for years so I'm more than happy with what I've got.

The difference IS night and day. I still have the spi but it's gonna be off the road as soon as the new baby comes home. It's funny...that's exactly what I felt like while I was waiting for my paperwork to go through...like a father in the waiting room waiting for his baby to be born...I just can't bear to get rid of the old beater, we've had such good times together. Maybe someday I'll fix her up nice. But for now all my attention (and most of my money I'm sure) will be going into the new one.

Even going from a zetec to a duratec, you'll see an improvement in the performance department. Enjoy. I know what you're going through. When my 02 died, I ended up going to an 07 with all the bells and whistles I cared about (sunroof, decent stereo, safety pkg). With the manual transmission, the duratec is one heck of a performer, even in PZEV form (which mine is). Stock vs Stock - the 07 duratec 20e with 5 speed feels faster and more powerful than the 02 zetec with 5 speed did. (the 02 had the advantage of being super light by having a/c as the only option).
