Unless I'm mistaken, the V6 will beat previous generations GT...that's enough performance for me...

Very true. Also based on a long thread I saw they average high 20's/ low 30's if you do a lot of highway. My focus broke 30 mpg maybe a handful of times.

and then theres this:
YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


Plenty fast for a DD if you ask me

lol

Get out a light, can't see shit. Not even an intake.

THat is plently fast. You don't need a 5.0 as a daily.
It's just phallus enlargement by vehicular means.
^sig that $hit.

Look for a set of evo x rims on craigslist. I got a set on my speed 6 for $400. 18 x 8.5 and 38mm offset. Paint or powdercoat and they would look great.
