I used to wax it and do basically a full detail on it like every other week at a minimum, even in the winter months

I have such mixed emotions about trading in though. Don't get me wrong the RX-8 is insanely amazing in pretty much every way. But, the focus was my first car, and I put soooooooo much time into it.

Well i went out to swap out my summer wheels to my winter wheels & found this:



Sucks! These tires have about 4,000 miles on them too. Luckily, it was repairable, i'm just glad i didn't 'need' the car for anything important.

Once they got the wheel off, i found this:


My buddy said it looks like a roofers staple. He said that since Sandy, he's gotten a ton of weird things in tires. He thinks items from roof's flying off is where most of the sharp objects came from.

Everyone be on the lookout for my old focus, going off of the dealers website and autotrader, I think it's sold already -- red 4 door, gray 15 inch alloys, tints, and no chrome. And the stupid tiny exhaust tip they put on with the super silent exhaust system.
