matt, your post made me laugh because i was here just before tom made that sticky that basically said okay guys the 08 focus has been out for a year now, we dont need any more hate just move along. so i got to see the "hate" as well. good times, lol

i always felt like the majority of the focus people were just mad that america didnt get a euro focus, we got a reworked version of essentially the same car. then they basically voiced their opinion in a way that made it sound like the people who bought the 08's were stupid for liking and purchasing this generation of foci and should have gotten an 05-07 or held out for 4 years (at that time) for another world focus. neither of which were viable options for me, personally.

i will say that i think we have made some progress since 07-08. a few people have stanced their 08-11 (...), some have made race-oriented to full out race car examples, FSWerks did their SEMA cars (i really like that yellow coupe they did!), 3DCarbon released a lip kit for it, ford tweaked some appearance aspects of the car, so we are at least on the map compared to 07 and 08. But i dont disagree that the 08-11 focus is one that "die hards" dont really want to aknowledge existed...

...but it sucks to be them because i think the 2012 focus looks like a steaming hot plate of ery; i for one have no plans to stop photographing my car and posting it up; and just like people to this very day are joining this forum with 03 ZX3's and 07 ST's people will continue to join with 08-11's long after the 2012 has been on the market. so chances of forgetting the 08-11 existed... slim to none

I typically check the southern section first, then the duratec performance, the ecu tuning and the wheels and suspension forums. Yes I agree that there was some dislike of the body style at first, I was one of the few 08's at FF09 and walked away with a trophy, but it felt like it was an uphill battle all the way. You have seen my red 08 coupe, it is extremely clean and very well accessorized with engine, suspension, ground effects, audio, custom interior, yet you won't see many pictures of it on the forums. I don't present my self as an postcount expert and I'll only post if i have a legit answer to solve a problem that someone might need help with. My car is probably the most washed and waxed car here and I don't post about it. All in all I'ts your car do what you want to it, be proud of it and enjoy it, it won't be your last car. Oh, by the way I dont listen to the haters....I like chrome!

I of course post in here ... but even before my Mod Powers:

I would venture in the Showroom area, SVT Forums, Suspension/Wheels, AutoX and Photo sections. As those places would always have something for me to talk about ... especially in the photo area.

You should try to make one ... you will become addicted the moment you try it out.

I check the most recent threads first as they are on the landing page, then I check SVT/ and owners, and click around at the new post as I see interest. I also check the Mod forum, oh wait you guys can't see that part... That is where Ray and Jason and I talk bad about you guys
We have made Rainbow names for everyone in there. j/k

Then i check the Texas threads to see whats new in my peps world. I may not post every night but I read what you guys write.

Keep doing what you do and the forum will continue to thrive. Its all because of you that we are as strong a website and member base as we are. You all add value, yes even DAMMIT CHUCK!!

Texas FTW
