And a catch can too. My wife has had the ltz turbo 6speed for about 6months and its pretty fun to drive. Agreed on the space, doesn't feel lie a sub compact. Still misreading the space when parallel parking. She loves it. Most likely gonna trade in for RS next year. The mpg's are great too.

Not saying I like it, but that is a stock saleen wing.

Nice buy, not a GM fan myself. But I can appreciated the reason for choosing it.

I can't wait to see some updates!

Bite you tongue. Lol.

I think it's one of the better looking in the class. Post up pics of the sonic purchased. The two posted look like pics off Internet.

Good luck with the Sonic but try a Fiesta ST with the 190+ hp when it comes out. You may switch cars again.

thanks guys and yes most definitely will be testing out the fiesta... BUT
I went on ford.com and was able to build and price it now.. fully loaded what I want is 26K... I just cant justify paying 4-5K for 60 more HP when I am going to get around 12HP and another 10 for my intake.. and about 40 if i get the tune.. that'd still be cheaper...

If I had the money I would totally go to the focus ST but For the $20,300 price im paying for my sonic RS and being able to add the borla exhaust, rims and audio system and bring it to the MSRP and putting 6K down I just cant pass that up lol.


I will make a thread when I get my sonic in a month and post pics... might just update this one with pics in the OP
