Hi everyone. I am Joe and I recently purchased a Green 2000 SE 2.0L Zetec w/auto trans to replace my dd (F150 XLT) that was I dropping $60+ per week on gas. The green goblin has some issues, which I knew when buying it, and so far the forums have been a Godsend. I do have some questions about the throttle body and TPS that I couldn't find the exact answers for so far. I won't post them here, but if anyone can help I posted it in the General Chat Tech Forum.

G'day, Justin from Perth Western Australia, I have a 2004 1.8ltr CL 5 speed sedan. Just got permission to do her up from the lovely wife cause she is getting a new car. So, will more than likely bombard you with a thousand questions and like. First off will be suspension and some new rims as these ones are a tad scratched now and was thinking maybe 17's as these are 15s with stock tyres.

Cheers

Hello! I just brought home a 2003 SVTF after a bit of searching. I'd been driving a Forest Green ZX3 for a few years, a great little car that never let me down. However, I was tired of not having a manual transmission and was starting to feel like I'd put off my sportier car enthusiast desires for too long. One day spent driving out to Chicago and back and I have a new daily driver with a bit over 59k miles on it.

Already enjoying this car quite a bit. The bodywork has its fair share of dings and scratches here and there, and that big unfortunate license plate holder on the front bumper...but it's nothing a trip through a body shop and some detailing shouldn't take care of. All of the important parts seem to be in great shape.

What I Drive: 2012 Race Red SEL Sedan

First time Focus owner

Hello Focus Peeps!

I picked up a used '12 Race Red SEL Sedan in early October to use as my daily. I had been looking at the Mk2's, especially the coupe, but glad I held out for the Mk3. This is my first FWD car, and I'm really impressed with the handling at the limit, even on the stock all season tires.
Like a lot of you, I have a customized late model Mustang GT I use for serious fun at the track (drag/autox/HPD), and I finally crossed the "too modified for daily use" threshold.
My '12 is a certified used prior rental with the DCT, and I'm guessing whatever was going to go wrong with this car would have been sorted out in the first 24k miles.
We also have a 2006 Mazda 5 "space wagon" with 150K cross-country miles that is my wife's daily driver. It was my experience with the Mazda that made me want the Mk3 Focus.

I'm loving this car the way it is, but have to continuously fight the urge to modify it! It's great to have such a thriving community for these cars if I ever decide to do it. If SCT would just... tu-ner, tu-ner, tu-ner LOL
