and one more...

joined last week, already had one post deleted (do I get a cookie)?

04 Infra-Red, local car (who owned it? I have praises and condemnations)
Up in Seattle ... looking fwd to a long relationship.

By the way, the best quote I've found on these things, from an old review/comparo of Civic, MP3, Gti and Gt-R:

But the SVT Focus strikes the optimal balance. By far the most engaging driver of the group, the Focus is almost BMW M3-like in its seamless integration of important and expensive tweaks. Motor gopher Tony Quiroga found another, perhaps better, comparison: "Even if its overall refinement can't match the Civic's, the Focus is an amazing handler. This is the Lotus of the group."
