    Nice. Huge fan of them. We got to autocross the st, gti, and ms3 on a course when I worked for ford. It was awesome how much they can oversteer if you want them to.

    The VW fanboi in me loved the refinement of the gti but the handling and sound of the ST made me want one bad :o

    It is definitely a fun littel car to drive, and a hell of a better choice than the Fit/Prius/CX3/Mazda 3s that were also test driven.

    It was a hell of a coup, and I'm so glad I talked her into a test drive.

    Saw a young family of 4 crawl into a Focus RS yesterday afternoon...sounded incredible. Love the ST too, but I can't own another Ford (other than Mustang) after my Fusion experience.

    In 2016 I went head to head in a mk7 GTI w/pp vs. a Focus ST for a whole autox season. We were both on the same Potenza RE71R's and he did not get within 1.5 sec at any event. I also don't think from my short test drive that the Focus RS would have anything on my Golf R either. But I'm a VW fanboi as well.

    I drove the mk6, I know the mk7 is far superior too

    The rs is junk and the golf r is amazing. It’s probably my next car tbh

    pulling the trigger on a four post. Going to add a slide jack, caster set, drip tray and jack table to it as well. I am tired of crawling around on the floor and it is nice for storage

    I've spent more on car washes in the last month than I have in the last two years. My old beater Ford didn't get washed once in the two years I owned it. The RAV4 used to get washed two or three times a year. The new truck has been washed five or six times in the past month. :lol:

    Just don't get shot in the head while you're doing the rubbery ducky in HRM.

    My new cheap as dirt toys, with the exception of my current EDC, the Byrd Meadowlark. I'm honestly impressed with the Chinese knockoffs.

    440C steel, the first knife on the left was under $10, the last under $22. The third tanto knife was $8, but a generic "stainless". For $8 it is getting tossed in the glove box for whenever it may be needed.

    That's not a mouse, that's a rat!

    I really like the Ganzo knives I bought. So much so that I just ordered three more. :)

    How have knives been lately with the import law change? Any more difficult to get them?
