'08 2-door ?
 
I don't think I have seen many 2-dr of that era, were they sold outside north america only?

I see them around me all the time. Im not sure of the exact year, (second gen guy could back this up for me) but I think they were made in 07 and 08. My next car will be a focus coupe with the eap package, 5 speed. :D

I guess I just never see them.

I just searched autotrader and yep, 573 two door for sale (in America on that site alone), 146 with manuals.
Within 100 mile radius: 2-dr's only make up 7% of the listings.

My sister actually had one for a short time. The dealer actually got it into the lot the day she bought it and he said it was the only one they got. From what I've been told, they're just pretty rare. I'm still pretty bummed she traded it in, it was definitely a cool car. Manual transmission and everything. She traded it in for a bone stock entry level Impreza... not even the WRX...

nope. they were sold from 2008-2010... model year wise that is. unless you already know about the 09-10 coupes. that particular coupe is an 08 like you said. its the only year the coupe shared the same exterior stuff as the sedan (excluding the later 2010-2011 SES sedan).

My sister has a black 08' Manual, SES
She treats the thing like @h!t! It makes me soo mad! Shes ran into couple mailboxes and posts, dumped paint in the trunk, treats it like a trash can, rarely changes the oil, other neglect. Oh well.....[gunfire]

LOL! Yeah, doesn't work, so far sh has killed a Jeep Wrangler (never checked the oil, ran the engine dry and blew the piston) killed a toyota camry same way, now killing hers. I've tried to teach her, I've even said i change her oil! She just doesn't car, I mean she hasn't even paid off half of it, and it looks like someone might buy it for maybe a grand it's in such piss poor condition, and shes the one with the SES and Manual....

I've found them slightly hard to find. especially if your looking for a stick shit. I went through car max for mine (mistake). Only 2 coupes in a stick shift in 500 miles

nickstewartroc 09-22-2012 10:43 PM

I couldn't find an 11' in stick shift anywhere, Talked to some rep at Mullinax, "Oh nobody wants a stick shift, so we don't make them" Yeah, after that I just left
