Great Changes For 09 Focus

Yeah I like the changes and would really like to see one moded to the hilt, anyway as much as we dont want to admit the svt days are over at least the old body style and no one likes change but Ford as well as Tom and many other focus fanatics as well as the genaral public is bringing on the changes and if we are willing to wait long enough maybe the svt will return even better keep our finger crossed we have made progress in a very good way. the 09 is looking better (keep up the Good Work Ford ) and the positve Input Tom and all of you focus Fanatics.

If people are ponying up their hard earned dollars for these wonder twins, then i really believe that IF the RS were to come to the US market, people would be willing to buy it. I mean, a domestic subcompact that can finally give the ricers a serious run for their money off the showroom floor? I'd buy that for a dollar! (Or 40,000 of them if I had to)
I know, We Americans are quite abrasive to the idea of a 4cyl. "muscle car", but I really wish We would catch up with the rest of the world and embrace the economy rocket "Proudly made in the USA".

You don't have to worry about this, if Ford really wanted it, they would blow the competition out of the water if they really wanted to. They have done it many times in the past to prove they can, then they back off and let everybody criticize them when they stop building them.

Ford has always shown that they can flex their performance muscle whenever they want, maybe they will with the Focus. We can only hope.

The Focus is Ford's bread and butter economy car in the U.S.. I don't see them uping performance now since MPG is so important for current sales.

I think it does too. The front looks awesome, but the rear just looks odd.

If Ford would just offer a Euro ST on this side of the pond and north of the border, I'd buy a new one! 225hp, 18" rims, inline-5. Ahhhhh...
