newbie

Hi all,

I just ordered a new focus wagon titanium 1.6 tdci and was looking around on the www and found this site. It is a great community and I have allready found great tips for things to do on my future wagon.

I also own a 1995 ford escort cosworth which is a ford icon but I dont think it was ever sold in the states?
I have also owned a ford fiesta RS turbo, a fiesta 1.3 (my first car) , an escort 1.8 tdi and a focus MK I 1.8tdci. Fords have always been around

Pics wil be coming soon.

Grtz

Welcome! You are right in that the escort cosworth was never available "across the pond", tho, those of us who know of it wish they were less expensive... Is yours modified or stock, if i may ask?

The cosworth is mostly stock. I restaured it completely. It only has upgraded suspension and an MSD development Stage 1 chip. Cars like that should be kept as they come from the factory I think.

Hi all. I'm Bryan.

I just picked up a new to me '12 SEL sedan. I got my wife a new van and was spoiled, yes I know what I said.
So, since I had such an awesome experience at the dealer i got her a van from I went back the next week and get myself a car.
So far I love it but there are a few areas I would like improvement. I will put a tint on it soon and a remote starter and then next spring upgrade the speakers and add a little sub to fill in and give me quality.

from Subaru to Ford

Just picked up my 2003 SVT last week for $3200 with 136,000 miles on it. Honestly I didn't think I'd like it as much as I do, but I think I like it better than my 2.5 turbocharged Subaru. Although it needs a little work, this car is comfortable and handles great, I'm psyched!
