New Cars

Traded balt in in March. Got 2 new cars. A 2013 Focus ST, and a 96 Mustang GT. Sorry guys, but I was always a Ford fan.

Focus ST mods: intake filter, Ford Racing exhaust, tinted tails, plasti dipped rims and hood, painted calipers, vinyl roof. Waiting for Ford Racing to release their tune.

Mustang: CAI, roll bar, blacked out headlight covers, tinted tails with sequencial lights, chrome engine caps. Planning to get Super 44 flowmaster exhaust, and probably headers and h pipe. Mustang is just my car show car so I'm not gonna put lots of go fast stuff into it. Focus blows my mustang out of the water anyway so that's my fast car.

Judas! Explain your treachery.

Lol, jokes aside, it's amazing what they've done with the new Focus, head-and-shoulders above the outgoing model, though the commercials just irk me. Park assist? What, something wrong with your eyes? Either cars are becoming appliances or we as consumers are becoming lazy. In any case, nice rides, even if they are Fords lol.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlTy8CHj8t8 here's the vid and the st doesnt have park assist but it does have hill assist where it holds the brake on a hill. usefull on mad steep hills. i traded the balt in cause it was 5 yrs old no more warranty and my trans had a lot of probs and i didnt wanna have to pay out of pocket. was tired of balt and wanted a new and faster car lol

Really I have to read you post this on two forums. The ST is nice, better without the plastidip and the interior is great. Don't see the point of the Mustang though when the SS/TC and ST are faster...

^Not always about going fast, there's something to be said about crusing in a RWD V8 convertible.

New Focus bodystyle is nice, I just wish the tail lights weren't so huge and wrapped so far around the corner into the rear quarter panel. Nice pickup though, ST's are fun.

I guess what I really mean is that I'd take a new mustang GT over both of those any day and you can get it for the same price and have the RWD and power.

exactly. i got the mustang cause i always wanted a mustang. i actually wanted a new edge that's my fav body style but i guess this is just as good. i didn't want a new one too expensive anyway. this is my weekend car and i use it for car shows. The ST is for daily driving and going fast. The mustangs about as fast as my balt was lol

The old motor isn't even comparable to the new 5.0.
