Thanks and hope to meet some cool people here.

I'm Dan and I just picked up a black 09 SES Coupe w/auto. Great looking car, but i hate the engine. My mom has an 08 SE sedan, so i know what the car will be capable of when it's finally broken in. At least in a straight line, the suspension seems pretty sweet :D

High.

2 things I want to do: Wheel locks and a car cover (black car + no garage...no fun) Where could I pick both up for fairly cheap? I'd like to get the wheel locks NOW. Already had my "up to no good" neighbors ask me how big the wheels are. 17's. On a stock focus. I know. :D

I got the extended warranty--but i know i'll end up voiding it somehow. CAI/exhaust? we'll see.

Wheel locks and car covers can be picked up basically at any of your local autoparts shops. A lot of Focus come stock with 17's actually. All the SVT came with was 17 inch deals. And a CAI and exhaust won't void your warranty by the way.

Good start thus far. If you are looking for a short shifter just click here>> CFM short shifters<< and it will take you directly to the site. Also you can use Google and check out to see if you can find others out there as well. But I would either go with the CFM one or the Steeda and you can't go wrong with either one. And welcome to FF by the way.
