I'm back in the fold!
 
Hi All,

I don't know if anyone here will remember me, but I am one of the original members of this site. It has been over 5 years since I have owned a Focus. I just picked up a 2013 Titanium Hatchback. It is pretty much fully loaded and includes the Intelligent Key, Moon roof, Select-Shift, Sony audio, MFT, etc. It is the Performance Blue color.

I am looking forward to several years with this beauty!

[welcome] back to FF!

Got any pics of your former Focus and new Focus?

Same here recently. I had a new 2000 SE sedan for five years and loved it.

I just got a 2007 ZX5 SES somewhat modified and couldn't be more pleased. These are the stock wheels with winter tires shown. There are black 18" units with sport tires to go on in the spring.

welcome back. I am sure you will enjoy it. I couldn't have gotten one of those though because all they come with are the paddle shifters. i wish they had put a good old standard in them.

Welcome back old friend and congrats on the new acquisition. I have a feeling this car isn't going to stay stock for very long.[thumb]

Welcome back!! There aren't very many single digit fan#'s on here these days. We're up to 100k! UM, btw, we don't kick people off here for not owning a Focus.

Welcome back!

But why no st...?

Thanks guys!

I didn't get the ST because I needed better gas mileage and this will be my daily commute vehicle. I also think the Recaro seats are a bit too firm for the type of use this vehicle is going to get.

There are not paddle shifters in my Focus. It is called Select-Shift and basically there is a + and - on the shifter handle. This only functions when you put the car in S mode.

Here are some pics of my previous Foci:

I am sure the mod bug will hit soon enough. I won't have to do much thanks to the list of options already on the car. I will likely do some wheels and the rest is still up in the air.
