are you planning on getting the new ST?

i'll never buy a brand new car again, no matter how much i want one. 2 years old is what i'm shooting for.

I'd really like to but the starting price point is very important. If I can get a well equipped for 25K I may bite. I've never bought a brand new car. It would be nice to know the story about every ding and dent on a car.

that's exactly why i got my car brand new, i wanted to be the only one that owned it and wrecked it lol. it's a nice feeling, but as soon as you drive it off the lot you lose a crap load of money.. plus, i'd like the car to be tested to see if it's up to snuff. (which i'm sure the ST will be.)

This is Idaho Falls right now, crappy picture but you can see some of it coming down. It was 80 a few days ago. My tire pressure dropped 15 pounds and the TPMS went off this afternoon at lunch. Its freezing.

True. I might spring for those. What ones are you running mark? Obviously it might be a bit different since I'm not in a focus but if I can find a good set I may go with those for winter.

I'm thinking of buying a truck in like March or April. Want to get a Cummins if I can find what I like. You think it is worth it to get the snow tires if I'm planning on selling the car in like 6 months? Or should I go for some good all seasons?

I was thinking if you're looking for another CAR find out what size the tires are... like what I did is I used the tires (both AS and snow) from the focus on the Mazda. great especially since the snowies are new. btw altimax arctics are pretty good that's what I use.

and I may have to put on my snow tires after my next trip down to SLC (so I don't put uneccesary miles on em) so I need some orange paint. lol.

edit: I also want some BFG KDW 2's and some sport edition f2 wheels to powdercoat green but yeah that's just under $1000 haha.

heh.. the snow tires might keep the car safe for re-sale in six months! i think if the car needs tires currently, just go with some nice all seasons, that should help sell the car when the time comes.

I think Vince had the BFG KDW 2's, if IIRC he loved em.
