      I've been a fan of your podcasts since the beginning, but, like Microsoft Windows and too many cars, it has gotten bloated. Two hours is too long for a weekly podcast (unless you've got a top auto exec as a guest), and I'm going to have to drop this so I can keep up with my other podcasts (all of which are an hour or less, and none of which have grown in size over the years). Remember Shakespeare: "brevity is the soul of wit." Keep up the good work, but please make it more easily digestible.

      Love the idea of the fiesta st... but it might be a bit to small. Really want to fit 4 humans without being brought up on charges for torture. For some reason, the sonic seems to fit people better. To bad they haven't done an SS of that.

        Focus ST, then? Also tremendously entertaining and within that same price range. -D

          started looking at that. The online configurator allows a sunroof with the base package. I could then add a leather kit (I've had good luck with mine and my dad likes his in his Mazda 5 MT) I always kind of dismissed it because to get leather in the ST takes the ST3 pack charging upwards of 30k. I actually did a Ford autoxx event in Foxboro when they introduced it last year. It was almost too competent. It was a bit uneventful to get it to pick up the inside wheel. I'm used to the pitch it in and see what it gives you nature of the Saabaru.
