Handling is addictive and with the electric power steering five speed standard at a 11.500 give or take due to trading in a piece of junk. I got the buy of 2015 IMO and a snappy little bugger super fast and wicked handling on the hastings of highland backroads goes over bumps like no other car I have had and still in alignment. I love my MICRA hope the best with your ford. You could have bought a base s model and took it to a turbo shop have them fabricate a turbo system for you and the few other goodies and be pushing 450 hp kept her looking stock and won a ton of races I'm just saying lol good luck
