Help me find more info about my '00 Focus

I'm the second owner of a 2000 Ford Focus ZX3 with a Zetec 2.0 DOHC and automatic transmission. I've had this car since around 2002 and it came with some kind of a tribal decal on each side and a Limited Edition emblem located close to the front wheel on the door. I don't think this is the Sony or Kona edition as it has a stock audio system. I recently hit the 150,000 mile mark. Would appreciate any insight on this.

We would need pictures of more of the car to be able to evaluate it. Most likely this is just a car the previous owner had some decals put on.

I'll post a few more pictures later tonight. FYI, I put the K&N decal.

I dont recognize the limited edition badge as anything Ford did. Any creature comforts on the inside that stand out to you? I'm guessing a previous owner/dealer slapped those on.

I've sat inside a few other Foci and nothing really stands out in mine. Everything appears to be stock.

Here's another photo from a recent brake pad change.

That decal doesn't look lik eanything Ford puts on their cars. You've got a standard run of the mill Focus.

That decal looks green. If it is it came off of a toyota land rover or a range rover. One of the two. I believe it belongs on a land rover discovery suv.

But congrats on the purchase anyway.

I personally would at least take off the limited edition badge, but I really don't like cars that pretend to be something they are not.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I personally didn't think much of it and just wanted to get some opinions. At this point I think I'll keep the emblem. I wanted to remove the tribal decal but the difference in paint was very noticeable. The focus has been kept outside for over 10 Chicago winters.

BTW, if anyone is interested here are some of the parts I had to replace over the years, in no particular order:

- throttle body
- head engine gasket
- throttle control valve
- front brake rotors and rear disc drums
- all 4 shocks
- front wheel control arms
- fuel pump
- ignition coil and cables
- thermostat
- battery cables
- ignition switch

I can't remember the rest, but despite all these repairs, it still runs well.
