Why he loves his Focus:
"First of all thanx for those who voted and supported. Also thanx to my fiance for supporting me with this expensive hobby. I’ve had this focus for around 6 years now, and I guess I’m still not tired of it yet. Hahaha.

I bought the car with the intention of modding it, and its been through different phases, from different kinds of body kits to different set of wheels. I’ve always had the need for speed so I was always bolting on engine mods. The focus sport turbo kit gave me what I was looking for. However I wanted a well rounded car, so I had to have some exterior mods, which mainly consisted of European cosmetics. I guess I became an addict as I modded the interior, the entertainment system, and suspension work as well.

I’m very happy where the car is at today, it’s been very good to me. I love how not only does it go fast in a straight line but can handle corners as well. It’s also very low profile which is perfect for daily driving. The best part about this is, not only can it keep up with the big boys, but it also beats them in how easy it drives and all the luxuries it has, not to mention that it gets about the same gas mileage as it was stock."

His future plans:
"As for future plans, I will be getting a new wheel setup, something different and unique with an aggressive stance to it. Also a Euro RS wing is being currently painted, and I will be putting front and rear night vision cameras. I also have a set of ST170 headlights and a badgeless grill that I will be putting on. As for the bigger mods, I am currently debating about building the internals for more boost, but still undecided."
