Yea, I have to agree. ^^^^^ I ONLY got mine until I get the catback exhaust situation worked out. I really like the way mine looks and get several compliments on it. I will sell it for $5 on here to someone who likes it once I get the catback installed......only paid $9 for it new and it's Stainless. It was worth it to me for the time being.

Hey, that's not my car, I was just responding to Titanium12's request. I'm happy with the stock exhaust. I don't need my car to sound like something it isn't. That's a video I found while researching catback exhaust systems.

I intend to go with an aftermarket exhaust as well once I do a little more research into what options are available but in the mean time I didn't find the unfinished steel exhaust pipe particularly attractive. Lots of other manufacturers (Honda, Acura, Mazda, Lexus, MB, Audi, VW etc., etc.) use stainless tips similar to what was posted and what I now have on my Focus.

Don't worry about the haters spreading hatred - as long as you like it. If you want to have some fun, search BTCC Ford Focus on YouTube and let us know if your car sounds anything like Tom Chilton's 'cause that would be very cool!
