but will you want a bigger car? if not, the new focus will be an excellent choice - I am out of school, having a great job, and driving a Mazda3 ... if there was a good focus here in US, I am driving that instead.

I assume you plan on living with your patrents and have no college loans ..

let me get you a quick rundown of my budget (15 months out of college) with over $38k income:

monthly net is cca $2k - rent, $725, car payment (Mazda3) $450, insurance $180, college loan $200 - just these 4 things and I have bare $450 that should cover internet/cable, phone.cell, food, gas, clothes, and some insicentals ....

I am not saying you will not be able to do it, wanted to give you a reality check - an Audi A3 .. maybe .. a base 3er? also maybe .. but an M3 .. WHEW ... that is some heft to carry right out of school.

OH ... OK I thought M3 stood for M of the 3series ... I guess I am out of the loop :D

Sedans look better. Go Ford, finally waking up. I can't wait to get that 3 bar Fusion grille swapped over.
