As a former E92 owner, this is the best advice given in this thread.

Really? A Stage 1 MK6 is as fast as a Focus ST, but not faster than a honda S2000?

I said nothing about an S2000. I've never driven one so I don't know. But having driven an ST and my Stage 1 GTI DSG with intake back to back. I'm quite sure my GTI was just as fast if not faster than the ST and much more refined. Also this is very subjective but I think the ST and the Focus in general look very juvinile.

Anyway not many Focus STs out there for $15k though so this really isn't on topic.

Focus ST is a POS flat brimmed racer boi car. 335 is a douchebromobile. GTI is a FWD spin machine. Basically, you're F'd at this price point bud.

This'th.

You could get a MkIV 04 R32 for around 15k probably. It will have likely around 80k miles but AWD!

It's a bit faster. Run against an ST a couple times and put a car length between him from a dig to 80 twice. The key is that the ST's turbo is smaller than the mk6's, so they run out of breath even sooner and even harder than a tuned mk6.

Stage 1 GTI is much much faster than an S2000. The S2000 is probably faster than a stock mk6, but feels slower because of all those revs.

Yup. You're fucked. You should just get an Odyssey, you'll be way ahead of the depreciation curve by the time you have kids.

Would 335i, but not with your budget. At that price point, drive what you're driving now - or buy a cheap ass Accord or Civic and save up until you can afford a car in better mechanical condition.
