People say that to me all the time. Like today I thought about turning my 08 into a track car and someone couldnt even begin to grasp the idea of doing that to a Focus.

I've gotten that response more times than I can count.......until I bought my SVT.

All I get is props from other people about my SVT focus.

They just ask how much power does it have, and when I tell them, I usually get a thumbs up.

I've hear people holler out " I like your car" many times as i Drive by. I'll also have old folks that ask me about my exhaust setup and sounds VERY good for a 4 banger.

Yea, a lot of people like the Race exhaust on my Coupe. They expect it to sound like a Honda but it does not. For a 2.0 4 cyl these Duratec motors growl pretty good.

Agreed, after 1-1/2 years my wife has finally accepted it!!!
Im starting to get a lot of attention with my car from everyone, from Honda guys, SRT4 guys and even audi guys. everyone just loves the idea of a small fast, fun to drive car that gets over 30 mpgs. oh and the part where I tell them I paid $11,500 out the door!
