Lowered wagon pics

It is kinda rare to see a modified Focus wagon, but due to its European design, styling and handeling, it has the potential of looking more like a classic euro sport wagon ( BMW, VW, and Volvo come to mind) than an American grocery getter.

I choose Sachs shocks and springs. Sachs is the company that supplies the suspension parts for the high performance European RS Focus. Sachs Performance Sets are favorites of BMW and Mercedes owners. They provide a 35mm drop using an Eibach progressive spring and Sachs tuned shock absorbers. (btw, the Eibach pro system uses Sachs dampers in their system. So are they really the same system? Don't know, however, Eibach no longer sells the pro system for the wagon, just the pro kit) Sachs is known for its comfortable ride in a lowered performance set up.



Similar to above but with optional guard dog


The Focus Wagon with an "all business" appearance


No more "do me" looking rear end


BTW, I found a great source for the Sachs Performance Set. Great service and prices.

I paid $495 incl. shipping! Talk to Yves (eve) at BMA Auto Parts @ 888/ 262-3911

nice st170 headlights. oh yeah nice guard dog too. looks really mean. i wouldnt quite compare it to a bmw or volvo wagon quite yet though. maybe consider some euro bumpers and rims. i wonder how the collection r/s front bumper would look on a wagon. really nice ride though. nice work.

You're right, of course. I stopped by a BMW dealer this weekend to get a close look at the relatively new 325 wagon.
My car will always be a Focus and a great value below 20K, but it is never going to equal the look, fit & finish or design features of 30-50K cars from Germany and Sweden.

BTW, some people have confused it's appearence for a small Volvo.

I have a Focus Wagon, too. My wagon is riding on the Eibach Pro-System Plus. I need to get some pictures of it.
I love my wagon. It's great for hauling my dog around and taking road trip vacations. I've received a number of compliments on it with people telling me it's one of the best looking wagons they've ever seen. A lot of people just ask 'What kind of car is that?" and are very surprised when I tell them it's a Ford Focus.

I'm not surprised to hear someone said your Focus wagon reminded them of a Volvo. Volvo is owned by Ford. The appearance of the small Volvo wagon and the Focus wagon is very similar.
