New Here

Hi everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Mike and I just picked up my 1st Focus this past weekend. It's an '09 SEL 5spd loaded. I'm typically a Mustang guy, but when I wrecked my '00 GT back in Dec. I tried to find a newer one in my price range and could only come up with V6 cars which are useless to me. So I decided to pick up a Focus to use as a daily driver so I could at least stay in the Ford family.

This.

New-ish 3.7L V6 = 305 ponies.

Older Focus = Not 305 ponies.












Also, welcome!
