Question How much would you hate me if..

I got this



More pictures here. Has less options than the one I wanted. I don't know why the SFE thing is so cool to me. I guess it has a lot to do with the only modding I do to cars is for better fuel economy.

The other I like is an SE Sport similar to this.

Really just been banging my head against the wall on this For the very first time I drove a Focus I liked more than the one I have.

Eh ... I wouldn't hate you.

I am going the Fiesta Route ... so your purchase will not bother me.

Good luck with the car decision man.

I made my dad drive a Fiesta too. He talked me out of it The Focus really does seem like a way more powerful and refined car, even though it isn't. The part that sold me more on a Focus was the fact that its only 1 or 2K more than a Fiesta.

I'm likely to chicken out before anything real happens, but damn did I want that new Focus bad when I got back in mine. It was a werid feeling, I've NEVER liked anything more than my Focus

Its that new car feel ... the feeling will fade off soon.

Yeah, I am looking to see when people start returning the fiesta or they begin to drop prices in the next year or so.

Nah I really did like the new Focus! I took it for about a 5-7 mile test drive haha!

The sales dude was always go to in San Antonio said the waiting game wasn't going to work for the Fiesta in any foreseeable future, and I cried. I've already waited 6 month on that and nothing has come of it :( Although, if the Fiesta was priced around 16K for a loaded one, I would get it in a heart beat! Then it wouldn't matter that I couldn't pass people on the highway haha!

*Eyes glaze over and zombie walks to the Ford dealer*

I'm just getting old too fast. I like how quite it is and how the SFE granny shifts like I do. The only thing I don't like about the new Focus is the trunk lid doesn't have that weird trunk hinge like the old focus does, it has old school arms that can cut down on the height of stuff you cram in there.

A word to the wise, never injure your body where it can't heal. It makes you 40 in like 2 years

Finally went to go check one out last week with Chapa. Wasn't feeling it much. the hatches for the focus and fiesta were nice though. the sedans were both just funny looking.
