Elizabeth I was at the dealer today and saw my old car.. 2012 SE.. over on the lot.
I should have gone over to say hello...
I didn't. But maybe i feel guilty enough to go back next week and do it.
(I think it was in the employee area. So maybe an employee already scooped it up?)

Nope. Another week later I got my snow tires put on the ST. My SE was in the used lineup, covered in snow and ice. (I could see her from the waiting room area) So when I left I went past her, stopped and touched her. I felt bad she was out in the cold open air, covered in snow and ice. All her life with me was in a nice warm heated garage space.
I feel somewhat sad i let her go. I liked my happy yellow car a lot.
I enjoy the ST, and it is way more fun, but I will remember the SE. Thanks you my bundle of sunshine.

I hope someone nice buys her and likes her as much as I did.

Slicknick Got mine last week. Great car! Can't complain about a smooth 32mpg average.

frizz Got my 14 SE MT in June. I have about 14000 miles on it now. I have done the snorkel delete with K&N filter, K&N air box lid, ST intake stack, FRPP axle back, FSWorks RMM insert, and feed it nothing but 91 octane. I think I'm done for now. The car drives great and no longer displays any of the Focus low end oddities. I may go for a 180 stat and a "Tom" tune in the future but I'm happy for now.

So finding a place to go fast AND no one calling 911 on you (me) is getting to be a bigger problem all the time.

On the other hand having a fast car does not mean it has to be driven fast 'all the time'.. So I think I can live with knowing I 'could' go 150mph, but never really have a lot of chances to go that fast.
(Notice I did not say 'never go that fast'... LOL)

Even in the SVT on the freeway any empty stretch.. jumping from 60 to 120 and back down? easy, all i needed was a short space to 'stretch' the car legs a bit.
Stretch your ST's legs over here

A real unique beast!

At 44 + mpg on the highway this beast purrs like a cat and runs forever on one good meal. Our last focus was great, this one is out to rule the road with paws that grab on and hug the road like a cougar!

Yeahbradley I bought myself a 2014 SE hatchback about 2 months ago. Already almost time for its very first oil change and this far I've only have good things to say about it. Not a ton of power but gets up to speed quickly, shifting and clutching are smooth, and of course the nice responsive steering. Already have a few small plans for it.

But that does not make it any easier to resist the temptation to drive fast too often. I know I would be too weak to resist. Not sure the torture of trying would be outweighed by the pleasure of giving in. It will be interesting to see how that goes for you.

BTW, how do you stand the waiting? I guess the fact that you like your current car so much makes waiting for the new one a bit easier. It's hard to part with the old ones, though. (Wish I had an extra garage for mine.)

Having a car that could do 150 but not having an opportunity to let it would be frustrating.
