Smile Another car

Finally traded in the gas guzzler Explorer I had. Test drove a few different cars in the ~$8000 range. High miles RSX Type-S, Celica GT-S, and amazingly settle on an 05 Focus ZX3. The Celica is garbage, the RSX was too high miles, and nothing else in town caught my eye. The Focus is a 5-speed, has 38k miles, and is very clean. I absolutely love driving it. Pics posted soon.

38k for an '05 seems pretty Fair. Congrats.

How's everything else?

agreed....those Focus hatches ARE fun...got a buddy has one boosted on stock internals at 8 lbs...and it screams!!! he had it for about 2 yrs now with the boost...so, i guess they can handle it...but it was pretty quick to begin with.

Duratec. They went away from the ZETEC motor in 04.

I have the Integra for sale. No rush to sell it, but it would be nice to have a few grand in the pocket instead of it just sitting in the driveway.

My boost options on the Focus are low, I only see a turbo kit from FocusSport, and it's spendy. Ideally Jackson Racing will release one, but I don't know what's up with that company currently.
