Hello from the Philippines

Hello everyone, great community of focus enthusiasts you have here.
I recently just got myself a 2008 focus (face-lifted) 2.0L TDCi.

Just have a few questions since i am a newbie.

1. What body model is my focus? Is it the MK2?
2. Where can i get my hands on them dash gauges (a complete set for left hand drive). Does anyone sell this off the rack or ordered from a Ford Dealer?
3. Is the new RS it available to make a face-lifted version on my car?
4. where can i get those headlight jet washer covers? and also the jet wash system?

Basically, what would be a good place/source or parts for aesthetic conversions/updgrades?

Thanks everyone,

Joaquin

Sup, and welcome to FF. I have a little bit of filipino ancestry myself lol. As for your questions

1) Im pretty sure its MK2, just a facelift like you said.
2) I think those LHD gauges came on the ST225 with the volvo 5cyl turbo? Try checking out this website here http://www.european-parts.net/. If its not there, then you can email him about it. Im sure he sells things not shown on the website.
3) You COULD make your car into an RS look a like, but i would be VERY expensive. Not to mention the RS just got released too. Give it some time and those bumpers should show up for sale somewhere. i would do a ST look a like. Still sexy as hell too!
4) Again, you can try checking out that website i gave you. I want a set myself lol. The thing is, in Europe there is a regulation that vehicles equiped with Xenon lighting must have headlight washers.

@KeepItKauai
Thanks for the info. I saw that site already and the available parts drove me crazy. The only thing that's keeping me from buying is 1, the shipment to the Philippines (and availability of a consolidator in the area) and 2, the conversion rate of our Peso to the Euro.

You mentioned an ST look alike face lift. What would i need and what are we looking at in terms of cost?

Thanks for your inputs, if you do come across those washers, let me know.

regards

Ka Musta po Eng asawe ko ai Pinay.

I wish I had a TDCI. That used to be my sig until I became a moderator. Ford won't bring diesels to the US. They think it won't sell because of GM's diesel screw ups in the 80's that turned most American's off of diesels.

If I were you, I'd look for body parts from Australia. That would be closest to your body style. The ones here are different.

How about some pics of your car??
