Smile Buying my first focus

Hi all, I'm new to this forum thing so excuse me if I ramble on about stuff that dnt mean anythin!
My names mark and im iterested in buying my first ford focus
Now, being my first ever car as well I aint got a clue on what to look out for or what to ask when i go looking on garage forecourts!
Im hoping that as this is the focus fanatics site Id get some helpful hints and tips on what to look out for!
Also, if there are any common faults or problems with the car, Id appreciate any info any of you lovely people can provide for me.
The model im looking at buying is the 1.6 Zetec, the only downside is Ive only got 3.5-4k to spend. Is that a bad thing???!
So once again, any general information you guys can pass onto me would be great, and if you know to any focus' for sale, drop me a line
cheers

Mark

welcome to the site. You are in Europe so I can offer no real advice on european Foci. I also think most of the members who surf this site are in America as well. All I can say is good luck and hope you find something you like.

While on the subject on new focuses.

I'm looking to buy an 07 focus.
Has anyone personally seen the Interior Upgrade Package? Is it worth the money to get it?

Any general tips on buying a new focus?
