Talking New Focus Buyer!

Hey all, pretty much new to the forums and a brand new Focus Driver.
What sucks is I got a ZTS 03 Focus (Auto), But for the price and mileage on it I had to buy it. Paid about 5 grand with only 23,000 miles. Anyway, I wanna hook this focus up, just want tips on what direction I should go. All tips would be appreciated. (Mind you the car is fully stock except the front bumper which the dealer threw a new one on. )

Yeah, pretty much all. Just want to know where to start off first. I was thinking on outside work first instead of inside but like i said any tips would be appreciated.

You could start with a cold air intake and throttle body for a little more power. The throttle body won't add any horsepower yet, just a quicker throttle response that will take some getting use too.

Hi and welcome!

I would suggest wheels and tires definately, along with a drop like b16sir1991 said. Tint the windows and youll be well on your way. Check out the 'how to' threads here. Tons and tons of great info.
