Hello from Ontario

Just bought a 2003 ZX5 MTX. All options including sunroof and heated seats.
I also own a 1985 Mustang GT street/strip car, bought the focus to make up for the gas I waste trying to tune my mustang haha. I just turned 25 and about complete college in january. New to the 4 cylinder scene, anything I should worry about with the Zetec? Also have a few parts questions if anyone feels up to answering them.

Thanks!

Ride pics:

My new focus!



My 85 Mustang (best pic I have for now)

Nice looking Focus. The Zetec is a solid engine, so other than general preventive maintenance, you should be all set. I love the Mustang my brother had white 86 GT.

My family had a '86 Cobra GT 5.0 5spd back when I was a kid...I was just a little kid, but even I miss that car!

^^ LOL

Thanks for the welcome guys. Well I figured why not have a matching pair. If I get my lightning next year, it's going to be gray too haha.

I am pretty happy with the car, it's going to save me so much money on gas. Already looking at certain mods lol

I understand. My last 3(and current 2) cars were(and are) black. A cold air intake(CAI) or, considering it probably doesn't get too hot where You're at(at least compared to TX) a short ram intake(SRI) will improve HP and MPG a little bit. Not much, but anything that improves performance without negatively affecting gas mileage is always a bonus to Me. Also relatively cheap, as mods go. That list can get pretty long, depending on the depth of Your pockets, lol.
