Been almost a year Ordie. cden1 has a Focus similar to yours.
Mine is just the base model. The ST3 is top of the line loaded. I've only driven 1400 miles since March. I just read that they are coming out with a Ford sponsored tuner edition with 50 more HP. Brings it up to 300 HP. There is an interesting comparison test in this months Car and Driver between the ST and the new 2015 GTI. I really like my ST. Ford is building some solid cars these days.

Actually I bought it in February


I love my Recaros. I wish they were an option on the 2012 GT I had..




You a member over on focusst or fordstnation?


As for the tuner versions.. Shelby has one, Tanner Foust has one. I really like the Tanner Foust Edition. As a matter of fact I ordered the TF front lip for mine. and in a few weeks going to order the side skirt splitters.

Could not resist. Sold my a65, and for $300 more picked up a brand new a77, which is currently on promotion: $300 off, + free grip (another $300).

My ST doesn't have the Recaros but the seats it has aren't bad. What blows my mind is the great gas mileage. As long as you don't red line it everywhere you go it's amazing. I'm getting better mileage around town that my Mazda 3 2.3 non turbo! I'm also getting used to the 6 speed after having autos for the last ten years. My wife loves it too! It's really a fun little car.

NGK wires for the Lezbaru. While this sounds bizarre I can feeel an increase in power. It will be interesting to see the mileage.

The resistance of the Stock (used) subaru wires was around 6K ohmes. ft. The new wires were about .2K ohms per foot.

Nice. My father had one just like it. My mom keeps trying to give it to me. Will probably take it when my kids are old enough to belt themselves in.

My latest purchase was some Nitto NT 850 CUV tires for the Veracruz.

You still looking at the Fiesta Tex?
Yeah, but not in the immediate future.

I really need to sell the Z28, but hard to let it go.

After years of constantly buying new cars, it is weird that my newest car is almost 6 years old....

Yea...pushing that for the Forester. I came close to pulling the trigger on a new one. After laying out 2500 on it in the last 6 months, including tires that won't happen. Head gaskets will be done within a couple years. I'm going to get them done at that time.

I love my Veracruz. Hard to tell it's been on the road that long.

My goal is to keep it until it hits 100k (has 52k now). mile and reassess how it seems to be holding up. Will most likely sell it then.

Got to work on the Mustang today. My dad had installed a CAI on it and one of the couplings came loose allowing unmetered air. Love driving it, got to rag it out on some backroads waiting for the CEL to go off.

Picked up a Rock Island Armory 1911 22/45 combo on Sat. The thing is so smooth and there is no trigger creep at all. Ive always wanted a 1911 but hated having to buy 45 ammo. So now I can shoot all the 22 out of it I want but still have the 45. for $730 it wasnt a bad deal.
