im sure the focus can do a bit better then that? i guess it is new and requires some driving in. but fair effort for a focus.

Wheels have done a comparo:

XR5 vs WRX vs XR6 Turbo.

The XR5 isn't anywhere near what I expected in tearms of straight line, but it's in gear was fabulous and won every 80-120 comparo except for the 3rd gear one, where the mighty Falc was in front...

FYI: they gave the nod the the XR5 as a package against the rest, but I'd still take the XR6T anytime! :D

no not good. interesting tho, as all the xr5's ive seen, the drivers would have been over 40. would have thought the car would appeal to younger ppl than that.

i drove one the other day, (old man works at ford), all i can say is fully sick, fast as a WRX. I ran my mates 2006 2.5ltr WRX and i won and he had upgraded cooler and exhaust. Suprised, but it needs AWD or at least LSD, well thats my experiance wif it, now on a 10 month waiting list for it.
