Subaru BRZ. I've only put the kids in the back of my car once or twice. I can rent a car for how few its actually been needed.

Mazdaspeed 6 <--Current daily driver "want to have"
G8 GXP <--what I really want to drive, but can't come to grips with the payment/mileage
RX8 <--had one of these, loved it, want another one.
Focus ST <--I like my current SE, gotta think another 100hp, and some better wheels/tires/suspension wouldn't do anything but help it!
B7 A4 <--We have one of these now, but I would ditch the Tiptronic for a manual, and it needs a tune in the worst kind of way.

F350 4dr long bed 4wd SRW<--this is what I've been drooling over. Pull the next (larger) boat, and have a place to sleep at night (with the topper/camper shell). I can't justify a $40k truck and a 75mi/day commute just yet. Once I'm out of school that might be another story!

An ST or Fusion sound fantastic - but I can't say how much money, if any, that Ford will be able to get from me in the future.

For every time I say that I don't like how I fit in a car because I felt they were too small someone always replies they fit fine. I didn't like how I felt in the Fiesta, plus my head hit the ceiling.

Good point r1ch, just because someone bigger than you was comfortable doesn't mean you will be. I'm a fairly average-sized person (5'10", ~175lb) and the Focus seat is kind of uncomfortable for my back after extended drives. For me it's not being scrunched, it's the angle of the bottom part of the seat that I can't change without changing the height of the seat.

I'd replace it with a 6spd 2013 Honda Accord Sport. As a matter of fact, I was all set to do that until my down payment money had to go towards the replacement of my furnace and central air. Heating and cooling trumps a new car every time....

What would I replace my Ti with... Well there's a few options:

If one could dream of any daily car it would have to be a Focus MK2 RS500 - Talk about a head turner in the states!

As far as more practical goes, I really do love my focus but I wish I had a manual and a turbo... So the natural choice, especially since I love the interior and exterior, would be the ST... Man I wish...

If I lived a few states up or we had more snow it would probably be a WRX/STi since I've always been a fan of those cars.
