I think you just opened up the flood gates........LOL
I have not seen one in person yet. But I am wanting to check out the coupe.
I don't like the outside looks of the 08 as much as my 05 ZX3. Only time will tell.

I test drove a four door actually. It drove very nicely. I don't know, the outside is pretty ugly, but the 4 door version is definitely the better looking option IMO. It's hard to really say one way or another because I only drove it once, but it seems to be a very nice car, just not a nice looking one :)

i just rode with my mom on a test drive of a 08 infra red ses coupe(five speed, woot). she loved it. and i did as well. sure it doesn't look anything like the original but it still drives handles andd is easy to maintain like the first gen. if all goes well she'll be picking it up as a lease tomorrow.

No, people who PREFER PROGRESS really dislike it. (Oh - and people with TASTE, too.)

Everybody is always resistant to change. The original Focus was talked about in much the same way as this one when it replaced the Escort. I was there and remember it well. I also remember the uproar over the 95 Mustang vs the old Fox body. It happens just about anytime a new model changes the overall appearance by a great degree. People will eventually see the good points and realize that no car under 80k will be perfect. There is always going to be give and take. I actually like the '08 mostly. There are few things that would need to be addressed but that is why I LOVE to mod cars.
