Just need links to Body stuff, wheel suggestions ( our offset is +50!?!?), and ECU upgrades ( flash, standalones, whatever) intakes, and any other suggestions. Thank you in advance.
welcome to the site. if you visit the 2012 boredom thread and ask you will find many answers!!

ps, i own a Ford Focus and work for Hyundai

How do you do? I don't figure we've met. My name is Andy, and I've got a hatch.

2012, Focus SE Hatch to be exact. Tuxedo black. I hail from sunny and muggy (or rainy and mild) Miami.

I'll probably continue quietly lurking the forum for the time being. Be on your best (and by that I mean worst) behavior.

Auf wiedersehen.

Smile Howdy.

Just joined recently after picking up a 2000 ZX3, automatic, 3 door, with numerous issues, but in decent overall shape.
Idea is to get it to pass the emission check, and make it road worthy within the next 30 days for my daughter to drive at college. The car was sitting idle for about 6 months after having been in an accident on the highway. I acquired it with the damage. Before getting the registration and insurance I paid a body guy I met to R&R the fender and hood that were damaged in the accident. He did a really decent job for $700 (including paint, labor, travel etc.) , so now it's on to the mechanical issues which have compiled by the day. I will be looking for posts on issues and prices: timing belt (no, I won't try it ), potentially a head gasket, possible brakes, tires, Insurance, etc...

What I Drive: 2011 Sangria Red SES

Hi all! I bought a 2011 Ford Focus SES last month after trading in my last vehicle. I'm liking it so far. Pretty much loaded, with Sync, Audiophile, auto dimming mirror, sunroof, but no leather. It's Sangria Red Metallic, which I think nicely compliments the graphite wheels and grille, along with the smoked inserts in the head and tail lamps. I hope I have good luck with... our last Ford had it's share of issues despite being an otherwise decent car, but I figure I'd give them one last shot.

Hey folks --

Brand new to the clan -- picked up a new '12 Tuxedo Black Focus Titanium on March 18 of this year. I look forward to being here and learning/sharing about this car with the rest of you. My car is not without its problems (yep, I hove posted into the Issues with new 2012 Ford Focus thread as poster #896...). I am hoping that these issues are dealt with over the next few short weeks and months so that I too can really feel great about getting another Ford.

Hi! I'm brand new here. Just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I currently drive a 2001 Nissan Pathfinder, but I'm hoping to get a new Focus soon.

Hello everyone, I recently replaced my beloved 2000 ZX3 with a 2012 SE. My husband drives a 2008 SEL.
