Focus Mag?

No doubt, this website rules... but is there a subscription magazine somewhere that gives good tech info on Foci? I've seen someone mention Import Tuner. Is that Focus specific or more general?

Focus Fanatic mag is on the news stands. I get mine at Books a Million. Only on its third issue so it is fairly new.

yeah, Focus Fanatic is a quarterly mag at best and they aren't offering subscriptions yet. There's also a Chilton's or Haynes book out that supposedly covers the entire Focus line for aftermarket upgrades and such. Not sure how informative or thorough it is... Saw it at Borders, but it was wrapped.

i had to harass the hell out of my local b & n, and now they finally carry it. they kept saying that 'they ordered it but haven't heard anything' and it came in just a few days ago. i find it to be helpful, and good luck on finding it. i imagine they will start subscriptions soon, but since it is so new like everyone else said it might be a while.
