mikebontoft That looks pretty good.

Personally I don't like tint film. Never worked well for me.

Kevastator Looks great!

As a starter mod, I would suggest buying a roll of taillight film from ebay, 10$ or so. It will totally change the look of your car, it is easy to install, and it is easy to remove also if you decide some day you like it better off or have some other direction you want to go with it

Ybbogus Nice! Love the 3 door. Color is good too. Not a bad deal with low miles and no abuse:)

I've been driving this a couple of days now and I love this thing!
what do you guys think? Did I get a good deal for $3250?
Also what are some starter (noob) mods that can be done to this, both easily and cheap.

It was a wonderful compliment and reminded me of my initial training on back roads with my dad and his near religious care of a clutch. Clutch abuse was not tolerated and "riding" the clutch was a cardinal sin. I must be doing something right.
Thank you for informing of us you excellent driving ability. I merely informed him of what to be aware of when looking over a 5 speed equipped Focus. That is a are of concern, and numerous readings and articles of FF allude to this. Did you have anything you want to add to tell him what to look for? Because that was his question, and I was trying to be helpful to the OP.
