i assume this is as good a place as any

Saturday i purchased my first Focus. a 2008 SE sedan. i love this little car. i have worked for Ford for the last 15 years, so i pretty much know the cars. right now i live in Sterling, VA. and have been for almost 4 months.


just thought i would start with a great big HELLO!!!!! and tell you guys alittle about me. im not looking to do any mods to my car, it will be here to get me back and forth to work.

Welcome to the forum to start!

You have found a great online community to talk tech, track, or whatnot.

In due time, the mod bug will sink it's teeth into you once you've been made aware that there's +200 HP Foci out there.

Check out www.focussport.com to read up on their '08 turbo projects. I'm sure you find that interesting.

Congrats on the Focus!
