Cool Getting one

Okay. My 16th birthday is in March, and my parents promised me any car 20k or under. I chose the Focus ZX3 hatchback. The car stock doesn't look all the fantastic, but I have seen some pics of it hooked up and it looks insane. What I am thinking about doing is buying the focus, and then putting the rest of my birthday money putting things in it, definatelly a new radio/DVD/navigation system first.

You could find a used SVT for that money and still have enough left over to mod it. Check out the showroom forum for some pics of modded ZX3s and BTW

Thanks :). Yea I did check some pics at the gallery. And my friend just got one for his first car and says its really sweet especially if it is modded. I was originally thinking about getting a Supra, but realized living in New York that power would go to waste because there are traffic lights every block.

And I really don't fancy used cars.

I agree with Chris, find a nice used SVT and by-pass alot of the modding. You will already have a ton of things you would spend alot of money on already.

What is the difference between a ZX3 and a SVT? When I look at pics they all look the same.

good luck finding a mk4 supra for under 20k(assuming thats the model you want). anywho.......... if you want a focus, do as the others have said and find yourself a nice svt.

Stronger motor, more power, 6 speed tranny, better suspension, a better interior, 17 inch wheels, and a mild body kit.
