Josh, you know how I feel about this, and I'm glad I could help keep it under wraps until you were ready to tell the world. To be honest though, now all the car needs is the right set of wheels to take it to the next level...something like these : http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=313633

Sorry for playing the devil's advocate on that one...

Mike

Very nice man!! So how would you compare the performance of the 2.3 over the 2.0? All I have ever had is the 2.3, but it goes plenty fast for me!

With the proper tire, the width really isn't much of an issue. IIRC, you have 205/40's on the EAPs, right? With those on Nick's RSs, you probably wouldn't have the issues you had with the XXRs. Like I think I told you back when you had the XXRs, tire size makes a huge difference when trying to fit wider wheels. It was merely a suggestion though, since I know you're happy with how the car is sitting right now.

Since I put the sap front bumper on the front plate being on has really annoyed me... It isn't legal not to have one but I see tons daily without and I see stock vw and bmws in my area with euro plates...

Took it off.

Drove it 2 hours home smiling the whole way.

Parked at home, very happy to have it back

Did realize a few issues on the way home and this week... Cruise control isn't working, still trying to figure that out... Also my rear wiper doesn't work since I have the steering column from the "st" in my car, which is more annoying then I thought it would be...
