Any off topic bickering should be taken to PM. This is not the thread to discuss it in.

Tanks for your comments guys :).

Some members here post some tread about their golf r32 or chevy sonic or subaru impreza , so I'll post pics of my lancer. See my 2 first cars were focuses and I have my thread about my previous zx5.

If you are not happy with this tread, dont read it ??

Will take a ride to the dealer for the installation of the gt spoiler, black out grille and exhaut tip :)

I still plan to buy another focus one day as a winter car but not for the next 5-6 years !

Can't wait to see what it looks like with those installed. Any wheel plans yet?

I'm glad you are getting the spoiler for it cause it looks 'naked' without one!

There are plenty of members that use to own a Focus (me included) that still post here. It's a great community and I don't see myself leaving it for long while. I have love for all cars.

If it loses it STI-killer reputation it might as well be dead. It just edges out the the Subi in about every perfromance category but the STI is a little easier to live with and the hatch version offers the practicality the EVO can't and is why I ended up with one.

I can't wait too ahah :) It will be done tomorrow ! I'll post pics soon.
The rims will stay on the car for a long time. The Lancer will stay mostly stock. I took it with everything I wanted :) No extra electronic stuff. I wanted the base Lancer for the full black interior and trims and the black seats. It has the mate black grille instead of the chrome one on higher trims. I love the black on white contrast of this car.

Eheh I cannot have a car that don't have a spoiler :P My previous Foci had a big JSP mid-wing so I wanted a big spoiler on that car too :) It will complete te aggressive look of the front end.

Get over yourself. There's enthusiasts of every brand here. That's why FF is awesome. Or at least used to be until people like you showed up and keep pushing those members away.



Back on topic.. my girlfriend rocks a Lancer Ralliart, modded pretty nicely by the previous owner. I dig it. It's a fun car. Drove it all the way from Wisconsin to Texas. Definitely quick, and poops on my GTI. Mod it. Enjoy it. But unfortunately, at least from what I've seen, the aftermarket kind of sucks unless you have an Evo.

Thanks :) For sure I will post pics after the installation of my stuff !

I will miss my Foci, it was a real go-kart, so easy and fun to drive.But I have the same feeling in the Lancer, it runs great and the handling is sportier than my previous zx5. I do miss my svt seats that's for sure. But eh, life goes on :) I'll keep good memories of that car :)

That's good to know :) The ralliart is amazingly beautiful and powerfull, if only I had the budget ahah For the aftermarket, I will not buy stuff like I did with the Foci. I will use OEM parts from the SE and GT to upgrade the car look ;)

thanks again
