It's because you have to make your car what you want out of it. Make it look good. People do this by modifying, tinting, lowering, roof racks, wheels, colors on wheels, lights, wings, chrome, dechroming, painting trim pieces, CAI's, engine mods, interior swaps, etc.

I did nothing to my last car and barely cared about it. My focus has had lots done to it and it just makes me want to keep going.

Sometimes certain cars are just that to a person... a car.
My last focus I liked but never enough to dump money into and never gave a second thought when I sold it. It was just a car.
When you find a car thats you and fits your personality you'll know. Until then just drive and enjoy what you have.

You just might not be a car person.

Cars are commuter appliances for some, but are much more for us here.

I agree with everyone else...Foci are not for everyone, or else everyone would have one. There are just certain cars that seem to be custom-built for people - love at first drive. Others say "It's not quite there yet" and make it their own. Yet others are indifferent, or even can't stand a particular car.

Much like human relationships, only the car can't feel emotions...yet. :-)
