Help out a new Focus Owner
 
Hey everyone I am a new focus owner and honestly do not know much about cars. I am very interested in learning and was wondering if any of you could point me in the right direction to obtain information. I want to learn about things like cleaning products, performance modifications, and over all information on getting the most out of my new car. Thanks for your help

Cisco, congrats on your purchase and welcome to FF!

For your 2013 the best place to look for information would be the MK3 Focus specialized chat thread. This will have information on many modifications and general vehicle specifications. Also, look through the DURATEC Ti-VCT Performance chat thread for performance info. As always read all of the "stickied" threads. There is A LOT of valuable information in those! Again, welcome!!!

as 06_infrared_zx4 had pointed out to you the sections that you would need to ask those questions. If you have anything specific you need to ask, be sure you ask it in the appropriate sections to get the best possible answers for you. And welcome to the site.

For cleaning products, I really like Meguiars. They have a full range of stuff, from wheel and tire care products to interior cleaners.
