New Focus Driver

Hi all,

I will pick up my new 2008 focus in a few hours. I am giddy with excitement. I purchased a Vista Blue Focus with Stone leather seats (none were available this late in the year with heated seats) and a 6CD audio system (Again none were available with Audiophile). It hase Anti-lock breaks with traction control and a moon roof (an option that I wan't looking for but didn't really care about either).

I think the first thing I plan to do is upgrade the speakers and perhaps add an under seat powered sub. So any though on good drop in replacement speakers will be welcome. Also, I plan to do the grounding mod.

I have been trolling the board for about 2 weeks now to help me make the decision to buy, and I have to say you guys are very helpful and your high praise for the Focus really helped me make the decision to buy. Glad to be here!

oh yeah WELCOME NEWBIES!!!!!!!

If you have audio ?'s make a thread in the proper section and we will be glad to help.


For performance mods do the same or first use the search button to look for similar threads. Most of our members that are very ACTIVE on the boards will have tried the latest technology or ARE trying it now when it comes to modding your car.


My expertise is:
Drag Racing
Nitrous Systems

A powered sub that I was looking at one time is made by infinity. It is the bass link model. My friend had one in his subcompact and it fill the space verynice, and added some boom boom too.

Here's a link that I found.

Lost son finally comes home....

Hi Focus Fanatics,

Newbie here and excited about joining this online community. After buying imports for over 20 years, I'm ready to come home. I come from a family that purchased Ford products exclusively--the idea of owning anything else was never entertained. I broke away from tradition however; I have never owned anything by one of the 'Big Three'. Current owner of an '05 Corolla and bored to the point of tears. Good car, but unrewarding to drive.

I really do think the 2008 Focus--coupe and sedan--are awesome! For me, it was love at first sight. My tentative plan is to purchase the '09 when they arrive at dealerships (most likely the sedan).

I hope to learn a great deal prior to purchase from FF! I admit to having some fear about reliability of Ford products, and it's my hope that you'll be able to dispel any fears or myths (and there's a lot of them out there) so that my purchase will be both a 'done deal' and one that I'll consider a wise choice long after the newness of the car has worn off. Thanks for rolling out the welcome mat!

Welcome to the Forums, you will love it here. As far as help goes there is always at least one person who has already done what ever you will be trying to do. So far none of my questions have gone unanwsered.

As far as Buying your 09 focus if you can wait about 3 months i would recommend you custom order your car the way you want it without all the stuff you don't. I know they already have 09 fusions and mustangs so it may not be to early to order yours. That way you have the first one around

Hey, thanks! There's a level of enthusiasm here @ FF that's contagious. I've not seen this degree of excitement in other forums I've visited.

I appreciate the advice regarding the new car purchase. I'd be content with an '08 if I located one with very low miles and the options I want. Then again, the new car experience all over again might be just the thing I need given that it's a Focus. Either way, I'm stoked about this car. There are some great pics of the current model in the gallery...I was up later than usual last night just admiring. Glad I bought my Toyota after all because in comparing the two, it intensifies the lust I have for Ford's product.

Very cool of you to send out your welcome and maybe our paths will cross again here on the forums.
