Similar to the OP, I came from a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT (355 hp V8). It was a mistake to buy that car. It was fast and looked fantastic, sure, but it was heavy, ponderous, and not very engaging with its automatic transmission. Plus the interior was really, really cheap.

I needed to get back into something small and sprightly. Test-drove a Focus S with a manual and was sold. Ordered my my SE Sport and the rest is history.
