Seems to me that there's no point in talking about a Car that most us will never come across, much less race. If the Euro Spec Focus was actually in America then ,yes it would make for a tougher choice between a GTI and the SVT. But since its not, then its wasted time. We might as well be comparing it to a TVR or an Astra VXR.

Logic FTW

I had an '03 Ford Focus ZX3 hatchback as my first new car and it was a lot of fun. Mod list was CAI, ported TB, ported intake manifold, header, hi-flo cat, 2.5" Flex, 2.5" stainless exhaust, UDP, short throw shifter, and a lot of Euro exterior pieces. I wasn't as fast as even my stock MKV GTI, but it ran a 15.5 1/4 mile and the total vehicle cost was only $10500 new + $1200 in mods = $11700 total. Not bad for under $12k. The parts were cheap because some of them I bought used and all of the porting was done for free.

I test drove a Focus ST and a Opel Astra OPC before I bought the GTI and they are nowhere near the GTI. Focus is too stiff on road. It shakes like hell when driving thru potholes etc. and Astra's build quality is no where near the GTI. I had only one other car on mind before I got my GTI: RX8. I simply chose GTI because of DSG and 5 doors.

I also owned a 2001 Focus Sedan 2.0 Ghia and while cruising it just stopped and never ran again. Ford bought it back.

Eh it's bound to happen, it happens pretty much whenever someone asks about another car or compares said other car to the gti, remember the s2k thread?

Well, I didn't read the whole thing- TL;DR.

My two cents...

This is a Focus:



If one of you wanted to photochop an R32 or a race team would like to sponsor a friend to put a VW there in the same picture- make it happen.

In the US, we don't have the same Focus made by Ford- we get the left overs.

It's a good car.

My wife's Jetta has that too! I just noticed it the other day. But sadly, no batman-like VW shadow projected ahead of you when driving.

bahahahaha! My old 337 headlights shadowed a giant VW, granted you had to look at both beam patterns as a whole, and they had to align perfectly, you could see the VW...


And I do agree with Dragon, the focus is an amazing car... Just not here. The cosworths are simply stunning cars.

And I would buy the new scirocco if it came out of the dealer looking like that, spoiler, massive road race aero, and wheels.
