Got my new car!!

2005 Pitch Black Focus ST with only 23k miles!!

I couldn't be any more happier with my decision. Glad to be back in a Focus!

I especially love how this car has the *sleeper Package* as oppose to the SAP.

Best part of all!! Only $8750!!!



Pics to come!

I said screw it...

I wanted something with a warranty and somewhat more reliable... Was going after a civic si and was set on it but found this for so much less with just a couple more miles and ALOT less $$$. Came with 5yr 60k mile Bumper to Bumper Warranty.

I've never driven an ST before and after driving this car I was sold on it... Gob's of torque compared to the SI too...

I don't believe the numbers for the 0-100mph though.... It seems alot faster than 23.2 seconds... IMO this car really gets up and goes and would probably hang with the SI given the fact that the torque comes in alot sooner and alot heavier than the SI's 138ft.lbs's...

not sure for how long but for my needs and liking this car will do just fine.
