If you could change one thing about your focus...

What would it be?

For me - more power. Not ST level, but give me another 30 ponies.

What about you?

Less automatic dialback of music on the Sony 10 speaker system.

You can crank it when a quiet part is on, and it will play about 1 second as loud as you want, then it dials it back to save the speakers/your ears/whatever, and it's annoying as hell.


Otherwise, a bit more power would be lovely, but 30 extra horses in the NA cars would be outrunning a stock ST according to the ultra-scientific research I've been able to accomplish while only being pulled a car or two by any ST I've ever run into.

Tighter turning radius on those cars with the 18" wheels.

Less rake with the stock suspension, would look much better level. That will be fixed soon.

Oh yea I love and hate my tuxedo black. Looks mean but only when its clean. Which is usually whenever I have free time before school or work.

I would probably change it so that the Nav package comes standard in the Ti.

Well at least I would've preferred that the salesmen didn't lie to me and tell me it came standard in the Ti.
