I must drive a race car?

Today I picked up my new baby and went straight from the showroom to work. On my way home everybody driving a Civic, Jetta, Caliber or Elantra just had to get next to me rev up and pull away then repeat? Is everyone really that jealous of us? Of course I humbled them with my 5 speed =o).

Sounds possible. I am still waiting to get mine. I have only seen one 12 Focus
here in Houston. The Hatchback looked sweet from behind.

All I know is that whenever I see a '12 I can't stop lusting over it. You fellas have some good looking automobiles.

I was sitting out front this morning just looking at my new liquid grey 2012 Fofo S. I have to say, the more I look at it, the more I like it. I also love the 5 speed manual, it's the best shifting of eight manual trannies I've owned, including my 2007 ST.

This is going to sound like a tall tale, but yesterday I was driving by an Audi dealer and pulled in to see if they had the new A7. The Audi A7 was reviewed by the Wall Street Journal in yesterday's paper, so I had just read about it. I parked my black 2012 Focus next to the dealer's black Audi A7.

After looking at the A7 (which is a gorgeous car), I went into the showroom to look at the R8. From the showroom, I looked outside and there was a group of 5-6 people standing around my Focus looking it over and looking in the windows.

To recap. Black Focus next to black A7. Audi customers on an Audi lot fixated on the Focus. No joke.

The $70,000 A7 is obviously the more desirable car, but my $17,500 Focus did capture more attention. As I was driving home, I figured that the Focus could be better when measured dollar-for-dollar.

I still want an R8 though...

@CharlieRose

I really like my new Focus better than the '11 Golf GTi and '10 A3 I was considering. Yeah I dont have leather or even cruise but I absolutley love it to death. I was a VW guy since 2001 and never even thought about a Ford. To me they were peasant cars, LOL! Then I saw this car and was wowed. Finally, a car manufacturer that recognizes the fact that we Americas love styling too. I'm glad to see the days of "Six Pack Hillbilly Joe" styling and QUALITY die. Oh and the 6 year 100K bumper to bumper warranty is waaaaay better than what I was going to get from VW!
