I live really close to Tousley, are dealerships open new years or new years eve? I have those days off so if Tousley had a kit in stock I could drive down there and get some hands on details if they'd let me or tell me. (Like open a kit in front of me).

If anyone knows of car dealerships are open on those days and they are, ill try to get more details.

I still plan on buying this kit around march/April.

Why not call them. Most likey the parts & service is closed. They might have to order it anyway, no big deal.

Hopefully we get some first hand reviews soon. I'm between this and coilovers. I'll probably go coilover but would like to read about this first.

Obviously not an exhaustive list, but should help you.

I checked out the link and there is a kit available, but there's little else available for our cars. It's kind of a joke really. There's more available for the Fiesta, if you can believe that. In fact, there's a LOT more for the Fiesta than the Focus. In fact, Ford Racing even offers a complete rally conversion kit which lists for $38,000.00 That's correct, thirty-eight thousand dollars. Think of all the parts that go in to that kit for the Fiesta. Compared to the Focus, it's well......not even a comparison.

Check it out. http://www.fordracingparts.com/fiesta/

Just Tom... You're a bit late to the party with your comment. The parts train is definitely slow for the Mk3 Focus.

It's not exactly an apples to apples comparison.

The Fiesta has more go fast stuff (Rally-wise) because it meets the new specs for most of the rally racing series in the world (including WRC). The Focus (esp the new Focus) is no longer the rally car of choice.
