No idea. I don't have a Focus.

I was referring to stanced vehicles in general. No need to get defensive, jeebus.

i dont really have a good opinion on it being i am a racer first and foremost. if it can be done without sacrificing much performance then its ok with me. but some cars (like the z3 coupe posted earlier with the lip scraping the ground in a driveway) have taken it a bit overboard. it's not that it doesnt look nice. it does, but as stated i race my car every chance i get at the tracks around here. my front bumper is already damaged from bottoming it out repeatedly on a steep incline at one of the tracks. and that was on stock suspension. i'm currently building up some parts to go with my 1 year used dgr's so we'll see.

I really do appreciate everyones feedback. If the moderator has to lock it up, that's fine. I really do want to thank everyone who has expressed their view on this somewhat volatile subject.
I have recently been in contact with a local Ford dealer in hopes of ordering a 2013 ST. So, for the moment my "stanced sedan" is on hold.

I was going to do this to my car with some retro styled wheels but do to the stupid bolt pattern not giving enough wheel options, I scrapped the idea.
I love the look of the 1st and 2nd gen VW Golfs and Jettas with this look.

and bringler26 lets see some pics of your car...are you on stockies with stock suspension????
Yep you caught me I'm bone stock. Rocking 4x4 status


Or maybe you meant my Focus?






Here's a picture before I raised the coils some.

This pic is a 23" fender to ground

Just an FYI I am not trying to stance my car. I put H&R coil -over on my car so it would be better for Auto-x.

Sorry if you don't like my opinion about your car. I think its ugly just like many people hate things about my car and my tastes. I live with it.
