I'd get V6, just as a daily driver/comfort cruiser. Focus is plenty fast already lol.

I replaced my Focus with a Focus ST with the six speed manual and the delightful turbocharged engine that's as powerful if not more so than the last of the old Ford 3.0 L n/a v6 engines in the old Fusion.

I wrecked my 2013 SE and replaced it with a 2013 ST, but If something were to happen to the ST I'd move to a new 5.0 mustang, a c5/c6 vette, or a G8/CTSV. No more FWD for me after this.

I seriously considered a used 3 series, and I might go look at one of those too.
I thought the base ST did not come with MFT.

The base ST comes with the 2012 SE sport seats, and the sync with myford system (the 4.2" lcd color display media center) rather than the MyFordTouch system on the ST 201 and 202A.

I always liked pregnant roller skates.

Is this question for real? On this Forum?

I love my car. Quirks not withstanding.

I've always thought the Mazda 3 was a nice car. Especially in white.
