    i say, meh... its incorrect wheel drive for one( but im just bias there) , there not super fast and ford did away with SVT and is doing away with the focus? so i guess from a collectable stand point its kinda cool but other wize fast compacts are done better by the japs.

    fox bodys are not aging well, well nothing from the 80s is aging well but why not a newer mustang? i guess like you said the MPG so why not a 6 speed camaro? they get like 30mpg on the highway, but then i guess it depends on where you drive?

    i donno man, id rather have a VR6 Golf or RSX Type-S over a fuc'ass, but thats just me :dunno:

    im not looking for the focus to be fast, I drive alot daily, so i was looking for something thats comfortable but fun and the euro package (what is pictured has heated recaros and hids) Mustangs or any rear wheel drive car in the snow gets old real fast. If i was to buy another mustang right now it would be atleast a 03/04 mach 1 or 03/04 cobra, but those arent in my reach right now.

    this, coming from a guy who has a V8 Dodge Dakota and big block 1967 Charger :o... but i understand not everyone can handle the 10mpg lifestyle :hsugh: ... although i think i can handle lately either :wtc:

    Extremely underrated cars. Anyone who followed reviews on them when they were new would know that. They are made to handle.

    I had the cobra look alike style wheels, HID's but no heated seats though. It was silver, and fun. For 11K I'd say DO EEET. or gimmie the number so I can!
