New Member-What do you think?

Hi to all,

This is my first post. I have a 2005 Focus ST 5spd 2.3L with 30k miles, I was wondering if you all could tell me how my car compares in performance to other Focuses coming off the lot. Im also in the market for some leather seats that make sense for this car. If you could tell me manufactures and where to go I'd appreciate it.

Thanks in Advance

currently it is the fastest focus they make or made next to the SVT. The ST is actually quicker off the line then a SVT due to more torque and lower gearing. The SVT is much quicker up top and probably beats it by about haf a second or so in the quarter. You are probably looking at stock a 7.7-8.2 0 to 60 run and about 15.7-16.2 in the quarter mile. The SVT is probably clser to the 15.2-15.7 range in the quarter and about a 7.2-7.5 0 to 60 run. The ST is a nice car though..
