Possible Focus owner here...

I'm in the market for either a used 2nd or 3rd gen Focus. A brand new 3rd gen isn't going to be reasonable with the budget I have, but finding a used 3rd gen SE sedan w/ a five speed is proving to be annoying. I've test driven a few new SE's with the five speed, they drive wonderfully. Having a manual is a must for my next car, whether it's a 2nd or 3rd gen Focus or anything else. My last two cars were slushboxes and I'm so tired of it.

I have found a few 2nd gen Focus models with manual transmissions that have caught my eye, but I've never had any hands on driving time with them yet.

The SES that has my attention:

Any feedback from 2nd gen owners would be awesome. Pros, cons, quirks, aftermarket, etc. I always end up customizing whatever I own, if I nab a Focus it probably will not remain stock for long.

Definitely looks like a cool bunch you got here, though.
