That's right. My car is a 2014 SE Sport Hatch 5Speed with 143 km (under 100 miles) on it and I already modded it.

I installed the FRPP snorkel intake from the Focus ST and the K&N filter. Checked the plugs for the 0.35 gap. Shaved the tailgate and waxed the car.

My previous car was... wait for it... a 2013 Focus ST with Stage 1. I traded cause I needed to cut on expenses. My wife already had a 2013 Focus so I knew this was a good car. So far, the power of the ST is not missing me, the roadhandling is....

I still have the James Barone Racing base bushing shifter that I will install in the new car and I have a e-focus RMM on order at the dealership for 53$.

I think I'm gonna enjoy this little Focus, not as powerfull as the ST but still a great little car that gets good fuel efficiency.

Oh, and why did Ford went with Cooper for 2014. I love the Conti's on my wife's car.

I think you have to upload them first to a host website like dropbox or something. Then push the like yellow box button that looks like it has mountains on it at the top of the comment box and enter the url for the picture. Or you can just dowload the FF Mobile app for your phone and upload pictures with it.

I've read the coopers are a better overall tire with a little more dry grip but I couldn't wait to ditch the stock Contis in favor of the DWS I have.

Maybe because my Coopers are less than 100 miles old and the release compound is not gone yet. I swear my wife's car with the stock Conti's (not DWS) handles a tad better. We will see in some miles.
