Howdy,

Just bought a manual 2.0l 06 ZXW and was surprised w the torque, handling, and braking. No tach, which bothers me, so I'll be queuing up with the other guys :)

Cheers!

Hello all from the shores of Lake Michigan, in the Coast Guard City itself, Grand Haven! My name is John, and in 1 week I will be taking a plane ride to Houston to pick up my new (to me) 06 Focus ZX3, silver, leather, power everything, auto, Ford Street kit. 54K on the clock. Was an Ebay auction, but emailed an offer that was accepted. The 'Cus is replacing a 195K 98 Cavalier, who doesn't owe me a penny after 9 years of honorable service. Here's hoping the ZX can duplicate the Chevy's feat. I'm still learning about the platform, sounds like the aftermarket is quite big for this car. Anybody care to give me the biggest "watch out for"s of this car? NAIOA has been valuable for my 07 Impala, and I'm expecting this forum to be my guide. Photos will be posted after I venture back to Michigan next Sunday nite. Peace, John

What I Drive: 2010 Silver Style

Sup everyone, new guy in the forums, I am currently learning to drive (I am 17, lulz) a 2010 Focus Style. Most of you won't know what the hell that is, it's the entry-level Focus here in Mexico. Basically identical to this one:
http://www.autos-usados.autoplaza.co...A17881186.aspx
2.0 liter, 143 HP Automatic with Powershift (manual mode, basically).

Me and my dad have been thinking about a new set of rims to replace the steel ones that are in right now, specially since one of the wheel covers is broken. If you look at the wheels in the pictures above you can see that they're not one of the regular steelies that are a big circle with drilled holes. They actually look pretty nice because they are black and are rounded, but they still look a bit crappy.

If I get to own this car I will probably add HID's, a spoiler, and maybe even venture into the performance world, but that is years away. See you all soon.

newbie with a saleen #38

Hi. Newbie here from Indiana. Bought my first focus a few days ago after doin some research. It's a 2005 Saleen focus. Love the car. I give the exterior a 7 out of 10. And the interior is a 10 out of 10. I plan on fixing the few small blemishes and leaving the car as close as I can to original. But I do plan on playn with a turbo kit this up coming spring. I have lots of questions so if there any Saleen owners or anyone know much about them plz let me know. I'm needing a few parts. Thanks for taking your time and reading. Oh yea I found this site by research and seemed to be organized.

Is there anyone with the European 2010 model? I doubt it but it's always handy if any questions arise...

There are a few around that I have seen, but if you have any questions, quite a few members in America know their stuff about European style Foci.


Welcome to everyone.

Welcome to everyone.
Alright thanks... I know from looking at various car forums that aftermarket parts installing require expertise many don't have. I'll make a post soon of the car for all to see.
