And I never once talked bad about the Focus SE. I'm pretty certain I'm going to order one this week, as a matter of fact. My wife and I each test drove one today and I was very impressed. I mean, it couldn't replace my BMW - but they're different cars with different "missions." I track and auto-x my BMW, not that you couldn't do the same with the Focus (I really think you can have fun hooning almost anything, and it's really about developing your skill as a driver) but I personally need RWD in my "fun" car. Not to say that the Focus isn't fun - I thought it was a pleasure to drive.
So whatever, I definitely don't think I'm "master of the planet," lol.
And my wife doesn't want a flashy car. I practically had to twist her arm to get her to test drive the Focus. But now I think she's pretty into the idea.
I hope ya at least get the Stick, and not a crapomatic lol
