Why he loves his Focus:
"It's pretty easy to understand why I love my Focus. It's reliable, cheap, easy to maintain, handles like a dream and gets great gas mileage all while looking good doing it. Aftermarket parts are abundant and fairly easy to come by for the most part, which is also a huge plus for me."

His future plans:
"As for future plans, I currently have an SVT header/flex, and a Dominant Engineering ORP waiting to go on. Once that stuff is installed, I plan on getting it tuned (probably by Turbo Tom.) Then I'll be done performance-wise unless I come up on a a great deal on something at the right time. After that, it will just be appearance mods like SVT bumpers and side skirts, tint, etc. I may end up doing a complete suspension overhaul at some point but who knows. I would like to switch to either H&R race springs or a set of coilovers down the road."
