It would have been easier to get a car with the lamps in the first place, but sometimes that isn't feasible.

Ford sometimes makes it easier by putting out kits for the dealer to add the parts as an aftermarket accessory, but in this case they have clamped down on this for the new Focus so far as far as cruise control or fog lamp installs.

It can be done, but not easily sometimes.

Yeah. I originally didn't have the money. Got it before I did my taxes. Should have just waited. Hope it isn't trouble.

I got surprised with my taxes H&R block did much better than my estimates.

Well i like this alot more than stock .

More bumpy for sure , but the severe increase in drivability makes up for it ten fold.

Yeah, poor college kid here. I've never made enough for them to keep any of my taxes. That paired with the education credits still going worked in my favor.

Yeah I got screwed, I made very little compared to my skill set but they still wanted to take more. Oh well. I guess the only alternative is death because they are the only certain things in life, death and taxes. I'd rather not be dead personally, that would get in the way of living something awful.

not trying to shit stir or anything, but if you dont have much money/make much money, any reason your driving a brand new car? could use the money elsewhere?

but i suppose this is "Merica". the land of credit cards. Where credit is better than having money.

I love credit cards, but also pay them off.

time to go back to drinking.
