Yo!! I'm a forever n00b!!

Hi everyone. I've been here for a while but still a n00b!!! Yeah!

Dude, I'm such a n00b that it took me months to find where the pcv valve was.

Anyways, I got myself a 2007 Legacy GT limited co'z the the driver door of the focus would not open anymore. I wanted to throw it away. Then my brother had it fixed!. We put in some g009 tires, new brakes and got the broken spring recall fixed and TARNATIONS!! this baby drive sooooo smooth and handles pretty darn well!! although it's a F.O.R.D. I still give it this:

I actually had was kinda wishing I didn't buy the Legacy. Well, only for a moment, until the turbo kicks in at Sport sharp I blast past 80 mph in a few secs scaring the toupee off some poor snail sunday driver as they catch a glimpse of me with my tongue hanging out cackling with mad glee

Anyways, welcome everyone!

Hey all.....just picked up an '02 Focus for daily driving duties. Found this site by doing a search and joined up. I'll be looking at the "marketplace" for a set of stock rims. Car has a few issues that i'll have to address so i figured this would be a good place to start. Looking forward to good gas mileage......lol

.....see you on the boards !!

Welcome to the greatest forum on the planet. No lie. When I first joined I was all like "what a bunch of suckers", and now I'm all like "this is the greatest forum on the planet". And it is. It truly is. PM Tom or Cassa for information on how to obtain your sacrificial robe and Kool-Aid packet, and welcome to the brotherhood brother. FFFTW.

Hi everyone. I can't say enough how much I love this website. I bought a 2005 ZX4 SES a few weeks ago, and since finding the "How To" section of this website, I can't leave it alone. The info available on this website is incredible!

You're not kidding! I was still going back and forth between a Focus and a Civic until I found this site. The wealth of information on this site made the Focus look like to much fun to pass up.

Did you by chance get to see the Sport Tuner Challenge recently on Speed channel? The 08 focus built by focus sport won the overall challenge. Close to 400 whp, and beat out a pretty sick EVO built by Skunk2.
