I finally found acar i would trade teh foci for..........

OK, so yea, i broke down and went to drive a Rx-8.
and yea.......... IT WAS BETTER THAN SEX!!!!!!!!!!
gawd i loved every bit of that car, i dang nearly came
all over my self when that car took a tight off-ramp turn
and 75 mph like it was nothing,

long story short due to the fact that i don't make 4k a month
and that i'm about 5k upside down on my foci(due to a hoirrble
deal for village lincoln/mercury, TEH ARE TEH DEVILZOR!)
i couldn't fit it into my budget, infact just making insurance
and teh car payment consumes my entire budget, thats right
a budget that pays for 2 car payments 2 cell phones rent and
a host of other smaller bills, taken over by one 800 a month car
payment, and another 400 a month insurance bill.

but luckily i have found a loop hole! i found a slightly 04 Rx-8
for 250 a month! 10 dollars cheaper than my foci! of course
it's a lease, but still! it's hope!

do you guys think i should go after it?

I am gonna beat you if you start another thread about either what mods you found for your focus or what car you are gonna trade for!!!

J/K

I would not lease, you cant do any mods b/c of a contract and warrenty and thats just no fun. Also you will still be looking at 400 a month for insurance.

Well how many miles are you allowed, because you know with a sweet car your going to be driving it any and everywhere all the time, that would be a downfall to leasing a sports car in my opionion. There cool cars but i think you'd be better off not getting in over your head in payments, i almost did myself i went and test drove an subaru sti and i almost got sucked into a $529 car payment and im assuming over $150 ish car insurence a month. But then i realised it would be nice to have but i truely dont need it, i have made my focus fast fun and fairly inexpensive payment wise. But do what you need to do and do whatever that is.

Keep what you got, unless you want to get even more slaughtered by car payments.

You know what they say " If you can't have the one you want, love the one you got."

Hehe, it's you're choice, but I wouldn't do it if it was my choice.

well.. keep what you have.. I almost traded mine despite temptations to go for SVT or an 04 2.3 nicely modded.... but you would have to suffer your way trough the lease. And at many ocasions miss your FoFo...

The Rx8 susck mileae wise.. and while I heard it's better daily driver than Z, it is no DAILY DRIVER... but what am I saying This is a sports car... but I wouldn't do it... just be strong.. take your car on some open twisties and enjoy it.. .do some more mods and fall back in love with it

OK Mister Butt Pirate, I have already decided against the Z for the same reasons you cant get the RX8 MONEY so when I do get my new car (that is not a Z) I will just come up there and help you realize your just like I was STUCK WITH THE FOCUS. But dont be too sad I will be glad to sell you a Race header and exaust, you know you might as well play with what you got!
