Looks clean, like it just rolled off the dealer lot in early '05 [:)]

I like those seats the best, dont see them too often.

It has all the original paperwork and window sticker. Pretty cool. The original sticker price was $21,xxx. It seems the sunroof, leather, heated seats and a few other things were options.

I have a long weekend of cleaning to do. Paint looks great, but I'm still going to clay and wax it. Runs fine as well, but will cover the basics since it's a "new to me" car, fuel filter, spark plugs and so on. I ordered some replacement tail lights, as the ones currently have some small internal cracks. I'm not a fan of modifying a car if it isn't OEM perfect first.

U know ur "poor mans" st can beat the 2013 focus st with the fswerks stage 2 turbo kit right? 3 locals can vouch for that

I'm sure, but that would require $4k, and effort. I'm pretty happy with the stock acceleration of this car. If I wanted to be faster than the current ST, I'd have just kept the Mustang I traded in. It's worlds faster than the new ST.

Thanks everyone. Looking at some Steeda parts in the future.
