The new guy

Hi all! I'm new to the forum and new to the Focus. It seems there is no end to the modifications possible on the focus so I'm going to need some guidance. I'm looking forward to benefiting from your experience's. Aka, hoping not to screw up my car!!

I have a 2004 Focus SVT in Sonic Blue. It's completely stock except for the Livewire plug wires and drop in K&N filter. I like it so much I'm hesitant to change a thing! Maybe headlights...window tint....CAI....lol! I think it could escalate rapidly!

Anyway, looking forward to learning as much as possible :)

Newbie Thread

Hey my name's Cash, I've been a fanatic for a few years but I found out about the FF website just recently.

I don't know squat about cars but I figured that being a member here could broaden my knowledge.

I used to drive a '02 Fort Knox Gold Focus SE Sedan. It was my first one that I got while I was in high school and I found it very entertaining. I seriously learned something new about that car everyday that I was in it.
After a while, the car started to give in, the tires kept blowing out, the brakes went bad etc. .

I just recently got another focus. This time it's an '05 Infra-Red ZX4 ST, enough said. This car is my life! I've had it since October of '07 and I'm just now starting to make some mods to it. I'm interested in turning it into something that says "I don't care if the SVT was discontinued or not, I'm still a monster!"

Right now I'm saving up some cash, after my most recent stereo, antenna, and head/tail light cover combo purchase. I figure next I'll go with either some new rims or maybe a suspension job. I guarantee that I will be seeking you guys out for some help here in the near future!

Hey all, my name's Garret. I'm driving a 2k6 Focus ZX4 SE ATX w/ 2.0L Duratec engine. I got a great deal on this car from the dealer....SE w/ATX and dang close to fully loaded for 14k and the sticker on the thing said 17k. :D I've had it for 2 years now and I'm ready to mod it, but I don't know how far yet. I know I'm putting a Steeda SRI into it for sure, don't know about anything else yet. Maybe I'll tune it, but I dunno. Anyway, just intro to me. Oh, and thanks in advance for any help I get.

Hi everyone, I'm Susan from Michigan. I'm a first-time Focus, and Ford, owner. I just got an '08 Vapor Silver Coupe SE w/deluxe package on Friday.

I realize there are many people who don't care for the new Focus and I'll be the first to admit I can see why some people feel that way. I'm coming from being a former Saturn enthusiast and was just looking for a nice commuter car with a bit of sportiness and the Focus fit the bill for me.

I'm looking forward to spending time here at the forum!

Hello, I'm Kyle. I'm 18 years of age and recently started driving a 2000 Ford focus ZX3 Kona Edition. Its in near perfect condition (thanks to my dad for 8 years)
Its my first car and I treat it very well. I'm one of those strange guys who names cars so it only seemed fitting to name this one (Despite the fact it was the family car for 8 years and never got named) so its name is Shela.
It has 140,000 miles, paints still shiny(ish) and the interior is near mint.
She is my pride and joy ^^

But anyways, I found this site when I was looking for a tutorial on how to remove the front bumper (me and my dad plan on painting it a flat black to match the bra)

If you were wondering, yes he gave it to me, I'm not ashamed (much) to admit my first car was given to me. But he just got a new Kia Amanti a year ago, so by default I got the old one. He replaced the window which had been shattered and the tires, then let me handle the rest. (Battery, oil, tinting for the new window and new compressors for the hatch back)

So there's my story! I don't exceed the speed, nor am I reckless. the cars my most prized possession and I'm going to do my best to make it go to 12 years (end of collage) and if she makes it that far then she gets a new paint job and maybe an engine! XD
