I apologize for my ignorance but I really don't know much about what is out there for this car, any help would be greatly appreciated

Hey, been browsing around the forum for a few weeks now and decided I'd start posting. No better place than right here to start I say. I'm Australian and used to drive a '92 Subaru Liberty, recently got myself a focus though. :) That's me!

New focus

Hello my name is andy and i just traded my 07' mazdaspeed 6 in for a DD. I just so happened to buy a 2010 Ford Focus SEL. The reason for the major step down in performance is well because i was tired of modding my DD and being worried about it blowing up. I now will be saving up the mucho money i am saving with this new car to buy myself a project car in a yearish or so.

My plans are to get a early 90's auid s4 or s2. Or a late 80's audi Quattro and rebuild it.

Things i do love about this new Focus is Bluetooth, MyKey, Auto dimming mirors, Inside LED's, Sirus Radio, the blue color, and its ride comfortability.

This i guess i will have to deal with is that it is an auto, and its not nearly close to my speed in quickness lol. But i do love just driving around with it and i do take alot of road trips so this will help me alot more.

I hope to maybe someday get tint, older SVT focus rims, and maybe some lowering springs, and some HID's. That would make this car look alot better i think.

I vote S4! My buddy has a 92 S4, and his uncle has a 95 S6, (same car basically, just changed the naming) and they both are very modded. Porsche Brembo Clamps, coilovers, and countless engine mods, I've thought about buying one of those myself...
