This.

New-ish 3.7L V6 = 305 ponies.

Older Focus = Not 305 ponies.

There's something about a true Mustang guy settling for a V6...It's like only buying half the fun of having a Mustang. Not to mention the 305hp V6 cars are only '11 and newer, which were more out of my price range than an older V8 car!
The best thing so far I dig about my Focus is that I've had it for just about 3 weeks now and I've only spent $45 on gas :) nothing wrong with that!

Wow. I did not know you could get an SEL with a 5 speed. I tell you, that is rare.

I kinda thought so, when I was looking it was pretty hard to find any that were 5spd, and the ones I did find were mostly base models. Anyone else here with a 5spd SEL? Now I'm curious...

Although I've only owned this car now for about 6 months the time has come to sell it. I'll post some pics and details in the for sale section later today if I have the time.
In the meantime if anyone is interested please PM me.
Thanks!

Well you are around 20 posts shy of being able to use that section and selling outside of BST is against the rules.
