well, Saturday me and the wife got rid of the focus. Reliability problems and work that was gonna have to be done in the near future forced us too. There was some bad grinding noises coming from the transaxle and we didn't wanna deal with it. So we got rid of it and we are now the proud owners of an MR2 spyder

Its fun and while i loved how my focus handled after suspention work it cant make up for the RWD of this car. My focus was one of the first US ones and was manufacturered in 99. It was the red one and i believe i was first to have the euro grills. Its been fun, Farewell everyone.

You did exactly what I've been considering. Luckily my most recent spate of repairs was somehow covered for free, so I've decided to hold on to the Focus for now. I suggest you visit spyderchat.com if you haven't already. The people can be a bit crotchety but they are also well versed in the car and the aftermarket parts for it. Sweet ride - great choice!

You sure you can fit good in it?

I'm 6'5" and my only complaint is that the door handle sticks out too much, so I'm hoping they add a telescopic steering column or make the wheel or handles smaller. Otherwise good legroom, good headroom. I'm pretty sure I can even fit a helmet on with the top up, though I wouldn't want to hit any major bumps.

My knee caught on the bottom of the steering column and I gave up there.
