On the path to having an actual turbo miata...
I bought a Focus ST to DD
My p5 took a final **** a few weeks back and that was it. The entire driver's rear suspension was rusted out at the top mount and completely broke off. :(
I've owned the miata for almost a year now and I was really ready to dump the rest of the money into to make it what I really wanted -
Now I think I'm just going to look at a more simple 250hp setup.
I love this focus as much as my Mazdaspeed 3 - It feels very similar to drive and actually a bit more refined. It doesn't feel like it has the raw power the speed did, but it makes up for it in the handling department.
I picked up an 2013 ST3 package that sat on the lot for a year. It was originally stickered at about 30000 - I got it for 24500 with 150 or so miles on it.
I feel like I'm the 3rd or so person on this board to get an ST, it's a nice car. I'm happy
