Goodbye TL after almost 10 years

I got my 2002 Acura TL-S in 2007. I've been a member of these forums since around that time and I've had nothing but a positive experience from the community here. I've had issues solved, ideas created, attended car meets, and learned a lot about cars in general. I wanted to thank a few people that have always jumped into my posts and helped on a regular basis: 01tl4tl, fsttyms1, Skirmish, 3.2TLc, ErickUa5 (Seriously.....you guys saved me so much time and money with all of your knowledge and help. Thank You.)

My wife still drives a 2006 TL so I'm sure I will still be in and out of the 3rd gen section. I sold my TL to a friend's mom who needed a used car in good condition. I'm sure she will take care of the car and I live 45 mins away if I want to visit . She got a well maintained TL with 175k miles, new A/C parts, rebuilt tranny, rear main seal replacement, coilovers, RJ wheels, and a whole bunch of other goodies for $2,000.

I bought this 2016 Focus ST last month. What a fun drive. I never thought I'd own a Ford, but they have been putting out some impressive stuff lately and the price I got it for was a good deal.

Congrats on the Focus. Everything I've read on them is pretty positive and I'm sure it handles awesome, I saw one at a local Ford dealer - a 2015 with 10k miles and they had it listed for $19.5k.

Yea, there are definitely some cars in its class that are worse offenders. One of my first mods will be a new rear motor mount to help reduce wheel hop.

I was just going to suggest the upgraded rear mount. There seems to be a ton of aftermarket for the ST. I had a short run with one a few years ago and it kept up. It would be on my replacement list too.
