The one I posted is sixshooters car, its a 2000 with a 07 SAP rear bumper and a svt front bumper. Also SPI is not a trim package, its an engine.....

What's different with the SPI? I am not familiar with it.

Still a noob learning. : )

SPI is a split port injection engine, you are lucky to get 100K out of one before it drops a valve and is toast. Don't EVER buy a Focus with a SPI engine, unless a verified head replacement has been done. Google "zts with eap" and many cars will show up on google images.

Haha, ok. Thanks for the tip! My SVT smacked all the valves about 2 ish weeks ago. Luckily it wasn't my fault(long story) and the cost of fixing it will be covered.

the SPI is often called a "ticking time bomb". i've heard of them dropping seats anywhere from 50k-220k. even if they are maintained properly, they can blow up, for example TheGlassMaker's car.

funny story, there is a dealership here with a horrible reputation. they had a white sedan i went to look at. it had an SPI with 160k. they were asking 2295, and he had another buyer. i told him i'd give him $750 for it, because i'm aware of that engine and it's failure. he said if the car didn't sell in 2 weeks, he would take my offer. but someone bought it for full price. poor guy.

anywho, back on topic. is this car for winter or something? i think any SVT wheels look good on the sedans.
i don't really know the difference from the "ZTS" or "SE" and all those models. i just think of them as sedans lol.

edit: my bad, his car doesn't have SVT wheels, but they look similar.

The main diff from a ZTS to a SE is the side body trim on the SE the trim is black and the ZTS has body color trim. That's a quick easy way of telling IMO.

Thanks for the pics tho. The white focus looks really classy with the EAPs. And I think it looks more aggressive with the 5's. I dunno, I am just getting ideas for maybe this spring/summer. I don't like driving my sunfire. I just need another focus. Lol
