Help the new British guy........

Firstly, this community is fantastic.........

Secondly, in the UK, my car is known as 03 Focus 1.8 Tdci Ghia..... This bears no resemblance to anything you guys are calling yours. So, so that I can chat with the right people (who have the same car), does anyone know what the US equivalent of mine is?

Thanks.

p.s is mentioning the fastest speed you have driven your focus at appropriate behaviour?

We don't have diesel Focuses over here, mate. So we can't really compare it to anything. If we took the engine out of play, your Focus would probably be a ZX5 or a Wagon (since you didn't mention if it was wagon or not, I believe there is Ghia wagon and Ghia regular hatchback).

You have a hatch. A quick google search showed that up. But... your engine is entirely different than anything available to us. But don't be a stranger because you've got yourself a different engine! Heck... never stopped the SPI owners... (lol! J/P!)
