Default Another Detour.....

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

Damn it!

I just left the Ford dealer like 15 minutes ago.
Walked around for about an hour an no one talked to me haha. Didn't see any ST's i liked though.
God if i could find one for 24000 i'd be in heaven.

I'm jealous though, it looks sweet!

Keep looking
There are a lot of 13 ST3's out there that have dramatically dropped in price
Thanks

I love it man! I'd go for a subie over one, but if you don't mind the FWD that is a great looking (and handling from what I've read) car.

Dillon, if you seriously want one, talk to Mike Collins at Briarwood Ford in Saline. That place is a class act, and Mike is a great guy and super easy to work with. I bet they could get you one for that kind of money. Feel free to PM me for more info. Mike is a good friend of mine and I wish I still worked at that dealership because they were awesome.

Yeah, it seems everyone and their mother can get me X plan. I've talked to a few people that can get me down quite far, plus 60 months no interest.

If i get this new job (hopefully soon) i'm going to need something better and more reliable.
