Man... I can't wait til my focus is as nice as ANY of these cars. Awesome foci, guys. Seriously. These are all ROTY candidates in my opinion. Toughest vote since I've joined. Gotta give some love to my fellow Sedan owner though... brave enough to be rockin' the SPI.

Thanks! I think i just realized that this is probably gonna be the only ROTM I'll ever qualify for seeing as it's not for certain makes/models. I'm just glad to have made it to the voting process at-least!
