Euro Zetec-S

Hello again.
I just joined, and I hope you'll like my coach.
It's made in 2000 and by now I have about 160k miles on it (256.000km to be exact). Surprisingly it gave me absolutely no problems what so ever. I try to keep it neat, and tailored to my taste. Hopefully you'll like it.
I bought a new Mazda 3 last month but I am keeping my Focus, it deserves to be treated :)

So here are some exterior pics:







- white blinkers installed


- air resonator removed (nr.7)


- bit of scrubbing


- so fresh so clean


- engine bay art :)


- interior


- LED dome light


- one taken a year ago on autobahn (no speed limit), very good for 1.6 liter! cca. 131mph


- don't touch my car :)


- new OEM remote installed, along with OEM receiver module


Sound setup:

- removing old pionner speakers







Alpines are in rear doors, I have new Pioneer split system in front doors, also Pioneer HU, and Pyle woofer in bass reflex enclosure I made myself. Pictures will be posted tommorow, I don't have time now.

Thank you. Well, any car can be in good condition, I'd say it depends on the owner :)
You also have 1.6 liter engines in Canada/US? Mainly the top speed problem is result of wheels dimension, I don't know if yours are original? If there is no problem with engine itself, or transmition, you should be able to go up to 200km/h (125mph) on straight road...
What is your consumption? I get average 7,5l/100km, that would be around 37mpg if I calculated correctly.

North America did not get the 1.6 - we got either a 2.0 or a 2.3

My wheels are not original, they're 17" instead of the standard 14". But I don't know if that has any effect on top speed. Maybe there is a secret limiter at 175 km/h! I should try a downhill road!!

I have never calculated my fuel consumption lol

any future plans for your car? I think you should lower it. I forgot to say - very cute dog!! I want one too. lol

And I have to show this keychain I got from Africa, it has a real little scorpion inside, cool :) (sorry for bad pic)

Thank you Sailor! It was one of those rare moments when I get time to play with turtle wax and stuff like that :)

Here is one pic of my Mazda from little village in Croatia called Smiljan I visited yesterday (those of you who know about Nikola Tesla, this white house in the background is where he was born and raised):
