Got My First Focus ZX3 (SES)

Picked up my first Focus last thursday and been having fun driving it the past few days. Its my daily driver my other car is a 2002 Mustang GT with mods. I thought the Focus would be a great 2nd car, good chassie and soild. My past 2 backup cars (both Escorts) blew up so it was time for new. Here are some pics...Whatya think? Pics ZX3

Liquid Metallic gray with charcol/light flint interior.

My only Mods onther board for the summer are some swaybars to take out the body roll.. Also is there a rear disc conversion out there that anyone knows of? im still new to the Focus mods.

Congrats on the purchase and to the forums Here's a link on where to get a rear disc conversion kit. http://batinc.net/focus.htm -- If you click on 'Brake Components', that will load up a .pdf file where you will find the conversion kit. It runs about ~$775 I think.

Cheers!

Hey, another Focus owner with a lovely cherry blossom in his yard. They just do nothing but accent everything else in the picture.

Nice color of the car too. And great choice of trim.

Welcome to our lair my friend. I see you like your fords.the only problem i had with my last ford was the driver window stoped working correctly after like 4 years of owning my 95 stang.
You may not know since your new to foci but handling is already great for these cars. You should worry more about getting some more power so you got something to brake about!

just my 2c
