I like the coupe. Does anyone know what there saying for Hp/Tq ratings? An SVT coupe to compete against the Civic Si and VW GTi would be sweet.

Joe, some of us could care less about the Sync. I, for one, can definitely live without it...I'd rather have my nice great sounding cd player I have now. I will never keep a radio stock in any of my cars, I'm just not the kind of person that will live with a stock stereo.

That makes no sence...

I dont think any auto maker has produced vehicles more bland than Honda and Toyota.

i think ford got cheap(go figure) and used the fogs of the F150. the interior isn't too shabby, very contempry and try to upgrade with an aftermarket cd player... gonna be a bitch to replace the whole center bezel. i like that they finally done away with the exterior trim pieces along the doors an rear quarter panel, easier to clean. 4 door looks like shit but seeing the coupe is better on my eyes. would be nice if the coupes had a liftgate or hatch sorta like my 94 probe. i don't see myself buying one first thing, maybe 2009 or 2010. till then i'm going to keep my svt or i'll go to mexico since i'm so close and import me a mkII ST

see i like it, it's got a tough look, it doesn't look like you should be driving the kids to school then goin to the grocery store now, it actually looks like something you'd like to be seen in haha, the last gen. Focus was a very relaxed easy goin, Gas mileage first, car, it wasn't ugly but this is defianately a tough look... i'd buy one for my daily driver and park the SVT and make it a summer toy
Power: It's a Mustang GT... need I say more?

my opinions are mixed...i like the look of the coupe and the interior...but the new styling is...odd for me. the front looks more aggressive to me then the previouse foci, but the rear is iffy on me. then again if it's on the same chsssis as the older foci then couldnt you do a front\rear swap?...but i still waiting to see if they offer a 2.3 for it. if not mustang or c30 here i come.

i hate what they did to the focus since the first redesign. my 2003 looks a hundred times better than what they have come out with.
