well, to make a long story short, i bought the svt focus i was telling you guys about. through my dads work place we got the thing called the "x-plan" so we got the car for under invoice price. and even though i still owed quite a bit on the coug they were still willing to do everything they could to help me out (something the other dealers weren't doing). i love the focus and am totally satisfied i got it, oh, and i also took out the 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty (with the luck i had with the coug, i need this reassurance, plus it was only 15 a month). i will post pics of it tomorrow or sunday.
