I am new to the forum. I have 2003 ZX5. I am looking at doing some initial upgrades. I would appreciate any input or recommendations anyone may have. Here is what I am looking at doing initially:
17 or 18 inch rims and tires
If you have a recommendation on a specific product and where to buy it, I would appreciate that as well.

Hello and welcome to Focus Fanatics.
I like Focus Sport for the Stress Bar www.focussport.com
I also like Ray Dixon at http://www.myfordperformance.com/ Ray is great with price match and very helpful. Great guy to deal with I know from experiance. [thumb] Also www.myfordfocus.com is a great site and offers lots of information, click on performance to view a great list of parts, prices and locations.
Rims and Tires, well I dont know a whole lot of information on that. My sister on the other hand purchased her rims and tires for her ZX3 as a combo from www.wheelmax.com. Great price and good selection if you are interested again. [:)]

Welcome!!.I am no mechanic, but here is what i have learned from my own experience.Depends on your budget and what you want to do first.If you are into looks the rims will be nice.But if you are looking for performance, I did Volant CAI, magnaflow catback, and now FC T/B (Throttle body).It did a lot for my car performance wise.And i like the sleeper kind of look to it.[thumb]

Thanks for the info. Lots of good stuff. I am looking into the Volant Intake, but Volant cannot tell me if it will fit my car. They know it fits the 2002 Zatec, but have not tested on the 2003 Zetec. So I am kinda waiting now. Hopefully I will hear something back soon. I have heard alot of good things about the Volant Intake.
