Mazdaspeed 3 or Mustang GT?

Well the focus is going. I HAVE to have one of these.
What are your thoughts?
The Mazda is cheaper, a focus cousin, easier on the insurance and a turbo 2.3, im not up to snuff on the cornering but lets say it beats the gt, has a six speed trans.

The GT is RWD, slightly faster, sounds beautiful and wins my bid in the looks department.

My other option is turbo my 05. no need to explain.

Anyhoo please no car bashing.

Wait for some stupid punk kid to wreck his Mazdaspeed3 and drop the drivetrain in your focus. That is my goal one day in the very far future.

I have the same dilemma, waiting to test drive a Speed3, because the Mustang GT is a blast. The wife has final say though, but that means I get to drive the SVT more than once a week.

well car and driver guesses the 3 to do 06 in 5.3 seconds and 1/4 mile in 13.9. if those are true its not off the mustang buy more than .2 or .4 seconds
