Newbie here.....Tim from Chicago, IL.

Just bought a 2009 Ford Focus SE....nothing amazing...but love it. I didn't get a lot of extras or nothing...but enough to make me feel good about my purchase.

Any advice on things I should or could add to increase the life of the vehicle....and maybe performance.

I was assuming on putting in a K&N Air Filter, front shock struts, and platinum spark plugs.

Any objections???? Suggestions??? Thanks in advance

Hey guys, my names graydon... and i just thaught my life was over! lmao... lets just say i was messing around and got a whole bunch of spyware a few minutes ago and luckily i got it taken care of. Anyway, lol enough about that. I've been looking at getting a focus for the last couple years and i'm finally deciding i'm going for it. Right now i drive a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP... but i'm looking to upgrade sometime this week to a 2009 Ford Focus SES sedan. I was skimming the internet and came across this site... now where do i go for mods? lol...

New here, found you while looking for info. on how to change the air filter.
Got a 05 ZX4 SES for my son last month. He is 16, has permit, but no license til July 09.

Want to find out more info. (where to get FSM's, air filter replacement, cheap mods, how to stiffen up suspension - what springs)
Long time Ford guy - first car was 1969 Mach 1. Love the SVT products!!! had a couple cobras.
Looking forward to learning more about our 2005 Focus!!

Hi, I'm Tim.

I just picked up a black '07 ST yesterday. I don't have a lot of plans for it performance wise, but I will be getting a full paint restoration in the next few weeks. Then maybe tint the windows and upgrade the speakers and add a sub. I've got a bumper to bumper warranty until 2013 so I don't want to do anything to jeopardize that, but simple things like an intake etc are probable.

I'm mostly here to gain knowledge, hear the good and the bad, learn about the car.

My background is in off-road racing, with years of experience in chassis/suspension engineering, design, & fabrication. I also have extensive experience with shock manufacturing, rebuilding, and tuning.

As a hobby I took up photography a few years ago. I mostly shoot studio and location glamor, as well as desert and short course racing events.
