It's not like either of you are driving a rust bucket.

What are your complaints about your cars?

It's not as fast as other cars?
and it's an auto?

Both of these can be fixed for rather cheap. Definitely cheaper than buying a new car. It might not be EASY but it's doable.

hey e i wasn't saying i want to get rid of it right away. i love my car,lol but once u see a newer/better car u always want to upgrade. i don't think i will ever sell my focus, or if i did it would be to my sister. i know theres nothing wrong with the car. if i was living in wales i would dream about driving a focus with my size engine and age. but i would of ended up with something like a 95 ford escort with 1.5 engine because of gas prices and insurance.

have fun watching batman tonight, it doesn't come out here until the 24th, and im in spain that week.

the auto doesnt bug me to much its more the cost of making these things faster.
i've got 1500 into the motor and thats been getting some sweet deals like free svt header and what not otherwise i'd have like 2300 into the motor right now buyinger everything new and i'm only making 125whp! if i had spent 2300 on something more popular to mod like a 1.8t gti or a honda/acura or a dsm
i'd easily be in the 200+ range so its frustrating to me to put so much into my car and still have it be slower than a ton of stock 4 bangers
