01' ZX3 New to Thread

Hey all am new to the thread figured I would introduce myself and show of my new/er Focus I just bought. I'm new to focus's but am looking forward to learning all I can do with this awesome car. Bought it for $2000 nothing mechanically wrong with it except a small oil leak that I already took care of.




Any suggestions of mods or enhancements that anyone has done or good parts sites that ya'll have used before would be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to FF!

2000 is a great deal, way to go!

I always say, start off with a roll of taillight tint from ebay, 10$ or so, and tint all of your tails, fogs, markers, etc. It will go a long way to customize the look of your car for relatively cheap and not much effort.

Keep us updated on all of your progress

Also, check out some of the threads on here from the guys with similar cars. You can see what looks and mods you like, and which ones you dont. It might help you decide what direction you want to go

5-speed Manual, I actually didn't know if it was auto or stick when I was going to look at it and just got even more excited when I saw it was a stick I prefer it so much over auto.
