Why He Loves His Focus:
"I enjoy my Focus for numerous reasons. I really like how the car looks. It's definintely something different to see out on the road, especially a modified Foci. I really like the fact that I've done every modification on my vehicle to date myself and that's something that I'm proud of. Before I bought my Focus in October of 2003 I never really had any interest in modifying vehicles, but now I'm a proud owner and Focus enthusiast. I've learned very much about how vehicles work and how I can manipulate things to get better performance and what-not. It's been an excellent experience so far and I plan to keep at it."

His Future Plans:
"I have a very big list of future modifications that I'd like to do. I'm going to look into getting many more performance parts. I think I'll add a Quaife Differential, [Upgrade Transmission, Valve Body, and Torque Converter via Lentech Automatics or McNews Automotive]. I'd like to get a turbo sometime in the future, so when I'm picking out my performance parts, I need to be careful because I'd need them to be compatible with a turbo setup. I'd like to have the SVT Brake Swap and some sort of custom Moon Roof. I will be working on a custom subwoofer enclosure, upgrade the interior lighting, get a few more dress up components for the engine bay and interior, as well as a few more exterior cosmetic upgrades."
