New Member here from Seattle,WA. I own a Pitch Black 2007 4 dr. sedan. Completely stock at the moment, but want to do the murdered out/blacked out look.
So if you know of any thread to help me out. Please PM me. I tried to do a search, but didn't find much. I plan to get the windows tinted asap, want some black 17"rims, and want to get some tinted headlights/tail lights.
Thanks
Edwin

My name's Steve, and I'm buying a Dark Shadow Gray '03 ZTS sedan. I'm picking it up Tuesday, and registering it Thursday.

Lowdown on the car:

Zetec POWAH!!
5-speed
90xxx on the clock
Two owners, clean Carfax. First owner traded it in at 78xxx miles at a Ford dealership, seller bought it for his daughter. Daughter went to college, no longer needs the car.

The goodies:

Immaculate gray leather interior. It looks like no one ever sat on any of the seats
5-speed!
6-disc in-dash CD changer
side airbags
AdvanceTrac stability control, so definitely has ABS too
Front springs, end links replaced. Water pump done at about 80K, owner was unsure about timing belt, definitely doing it in the spring if it wasn't done. My thinking is that they were right there when the water pump was done, why not just get the belt out of the way, too.
Has 4 recent Canadian-brand (can't remember what) snow tires. I bet this thing could climb the Grand Canyon in a blizzard, though. Very aggressive tread pattern and sipes.
As far as I can tell, the only missing option is power seats. Not a big deal to me.

The not-so-goodies:

Only one: Water leak to passenger-rear floor. Blocked sunroof drain? Not sure what else could cause this, save bad weatherstripping on the door.

Clutch catches pretty high and has long travel, though it feels smooth with no slipping. Reminds me of my old T-bird Turbo Coupe. Shifter is nice, I like that I can leave my elbow on the arm rest and use my wrist to do all the shifting.

Honestly, this car feels like a mini-bank vault, it's that tight. Feels even more solid than my Grand Marquis does. This will be my 11th car and my sixth FoMoCo ride (also had: '88 Turbo Coupe, '97 Mustang GT, '94 Mark VIII, and '95 and '97 Grand Marquis- the '97 Marquis is my current ride). I'm buying it because I need something better on gas, and I wanted 5-speed again. What drew me to the Focus, even though I spent over my budget, was the fact that it was in such great shape. I looked at some real roaches on my way to landing this ride. My cousin bought a black '00 SE sedan with all the goodies back when the Focus first came out, and I loved that car.

Glad to be aboard, hope to learn a lot.
