May have to get rid of the Focus and only have 3 grand so if anyone has any info on a a GTI, Corrado or any other sporty car around that figure (with a manual), that would be great. Thanks for the help!

Don't trade you SVT Focus off with the go fast goodies on her
Swap them on over to mine;) Especially if you have some all season tires!

The new Golf is a pretty good looking car. Since there really isn't much out in the market place like our cars these days - I have been passively looking at them and the mini cooper S.... lol little go carts

^^ I might do that ; ). She won't be gone, my dad might drive her. sorry no all seasons though, that was the next purchase. All tentative plans at the time, I'll keep you posted. The reason I want an old GTI (specifically Mark II) is the fact that they are light and handle great, like the SVT, and even similar performance. Plus i finally get a car to wrench on since it is really simple and cheap, and still classy, not like a civic or anything. My insurance is the main reason i may switch since it is absolutely killing me.

If things progress and become serious then yes, I was trolling that site today TONS of info. As of right now I don"t know the direction I will be taking to absolve my insurance issue so I did not sign up.

I would like to keep my car because I am a little nervous driving a car almost as old as I am, if not older. Plus my GF would hate it even more than the Focus, which is hard to believe.
