If you could change one thing about your focus...

What would it be?

For me - more power. Not ST level, but give me another 30 ponies.

What about you?

Less automatic dialback of music on the Sony 10 speaker system.

You can crank it when a quiet part is on, and it will play about 1 second as loud as you want, then it dials it back to save the speakers/your ears/whatever, and it's annoying as hell.


Otherwise, a bit more power would be lovely, but 30 extra horses in the NA cars would be outrunning a stock ST according to the ultra-scientific research I've been able to accomplish while only being pulled a car or two by any ST I've ever run into.

Less rake with the stock suspension, would look much better level. That will be fixed soon.

Oh yea I love and hate my tuxedo black. Looks mean but only when its clean. Which is usually whenever I have free time before school or work.

I would probably change it so that the Nav package comes standard in the Ti.

Well at least I would've preferred that the salesmen didn't lie to me and tell me it came standard in the Ti.
