Hey Geezers, I was in the silver XR5 that came along to the Sydney South cruise on Sunday (well part of it anyway)

Here's some pics of my car. I 'll post up the pics from the cruise now too.

Cheers

Welcome to the club mate. When buying my car i seriously considered the focus. Not the XR5, as much as i would want one, i was lookin at the standard focus.

Its just one of the quirks with the XR5, they bang when you short shift on upchange, and they bang on downchanges

Its louder with an exhaust, but you should hear it with a turboback!



edit - hey I forgot to mention, we've lined up a night to go to WSID. 10th June, if anyone's interested.

More details can be found here, but you need to joinup, so come and say hello

Hey Latso, welcome to ClubCJ -

I have a turbo Focus* as well for my work car :lol:

Rockin' cars - they go really well and I like the interior quite a bit (not as much as the Lancer I have though :P).

I hope to see more of your car around. I reckon they look tops and I would have probably bought another one but my wife not too happy with the 6 spd gearbox. Looking forward to seeing more with the new front getting around, they look great.

Focus XR5T, a worthy Ralliart rival. It's a great ride with a Volvo engine, also among my choices if I had extra.
