I"d gladly help ya with the wiring if I could. Don't get done that way often though.

Not to add more bad news, but don't forget you're due for a timing belt now too.

I finally managed to talk the gf into letting me do a mod to her car…well more like demanded it. I got her a new H/U and told her I wasn't installing it until I color matched the dash kit.

Voila!

Mine just rolled over the 100,000 mark. I cried. I want to slam her so bad before FF13. Ugh. I need some extra cash, but damn there's so many other things I need to buy first.

Since I can't find anyone selling decent coilovers, I'm thinking about buying new. What brand do y'all recommend?

Dammit Kipp!!! lol I think I know somebody that can do that for me. I'm pretty sure the previous owners of my focus haven't kept up with recommended maintenance. It's only got a couple stamps in the maintenance book, and I found it's originally from Washington. I know it's got a lot of work that needs to be done to keep it running at it's best, but sometimes I just wanna throw in the towel and go find something else. I just love the combination I get from my focus. Great mpg (even at highway speeds, and I mean fast highway speeds), easy parking, it's quick and nimble, and it holds all the trash I need to throw into it. The only other thing that even close is an SRT4 neon, and I really don't wanna be seen in a neon.

So my friend talked me into going to Tater Day in her hometown. Not sure what I think about this.
