My 2002 Wagon

Hey everyone, I am new to the forum, even though I bought a Focus almost a year ago now. From what I have seen and heard, the Focus seems to be a very good car. I personally own a 2002 Wagon SE, with 17" TSW Avus R's. Anyway, I thought that I should join the forum, ive seen some sweet looking cars on here and been practically drooling over them. Anyway, I am posting looking to see what people think of my car and what to do with it. Any thoughts?

Welcome, man. I would start with a few simplie mods that you can find here:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=175576

Popular mods would be tint, drop, color-match mirror caps and doorhandles, get some OEM fogs and the fog grille and wire it using this guide:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=229873

Bake and paint your headlights here:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=59986
while ther open install projectores here:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=164851

Debadge it, prolly go to TFB Designs for some emblem overlays.

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=236903

might as well through this up, the complete how-to archive

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=65218

Maybe niteshade the sidemarkers and tails.

Nice-looking wagon to start with

One thing is a must right now, paint your calipers and drums black, I can see the rust!!!(USe a brake paint kit)
One question, do you have the Zetec or SPI?

Wow, thanks. I think I am going to do some of those things. I have the 2.0 litre Zetec, would not be caught dead with the SPI. I know this is kinda the definition of rice, but I painted my drums silver and my calipers red. These are photos of the car from last may, so it was in pretty bad condition here.

get rid of the red calipers, it accentuates how small our brakes are and how they're not for performance!!!!!

Yeah, I was thinking but I just replaced the front struts with Monroe Quick struts as one of my springs snapped (originals, and the car has 225,000km). Had I known about this forum beforehand I would have bought some lowered ones, but I work for an Auto parts company (get wholesale + 10%) and it was a rush decision. I do have airbag suspension in the back, I will take a video of it today to show the forum.

Okay, sounds good. Not really what i wanted to hear, but the truth is the truth. BTW, I read your whole topic on your focus, cool to hear your doing a 5-speed swap!
