109,000, stock clutch (unless previous owner did TSB, Ive had this car since 60k or so)

Only problems Ive had:

/stuck open thermostat, replaced

/leaky thermostat housing plug, fixed with a new o-ring

/bent up 5 spokes, replacing with 15 spoke EAP's this Monday.

Going strong so far...

2003 Focus ZX5 SVT (CD Silver)
Bought new in January of 2004, just turned over 116,000 miles last month. Changed the timing belt last weekend. Original clutch.

Incidently I think this is my first post in this forum. I should probably go to the newbie section and introduce myself :)
