^ Just for the record the POS SRT-4 looks like a lunchbox/dishwasher. There isn't even a glare of SRT-4 in these lines at all.

I like it but i don't know about 25k for it...

A drop would make it look perfect, maybe they should redesign that front-end as well.

yeah. probably right. what stinks is that the 2010 SES is almost $22,000 fully loaded. I paid more for my 2010 SES than any of the SVT crowd paid for their car (about $3,000 more from what i believe). I think the SES should have come with a beefier engine than the s, se, and sel models. It also should have been lowered from the factory like the svt was. Don't get me wrong, I think Ford did a great job with the SES model, but left some very important features out.

Hopefully the 2012 will NOT have two different size cup holders like the 08+ models do. Who ever thought to have two different sized cup holder deserves a smack to the head. I dislike that i can only use one of my cup holders as one is too small. I really hope things are much better for the 2012 Focus

I agree with this. See after next quote...

My opinion: I think many of us are forgetting about when the focus was introduced... and what's going on at Ford now. The fiesta IS taking over the focus. The focus is then being pushed up a notch in PRICE AND QUALITY. If you want to have the smaller less comfy, less outfitted car, go with the fiesta. The focus isn't going to be what it was. Anyone ever tell you "your car is too small" (back in the day when the focus was new)?

I think it will be close to 30K and you WILL get what you pay for.



I also think that this new st looks awesome! But wait to see how it sounds!!!! That's where it's going to be the deal breaker

Posted via FF Mobile Agreed, I still think itll have a base price less then 30k, but remeber people you all complained about us not getting the euro version...now your getting it as well as the price that went along with it. Looking forward to the next focus coming out. I have to agree that the frot does not look like a focus though. So Im kinda hoping the design changes alittle bit. Every other performance focus face looked similar to the focus it was based on...this one does not, something bothers me about that.
