Not really an MK1 fan but that looks good, simple and clean and rice free. Both these MK1s are nice.

The only thing I'm kind of pissed about is the Tru Bendz exhaust. As you can see, the fitment sucks.

As for a front lip on your car, it makes the car look really good but they drag and get stuck on everything and look like crap after a year. My wife was notorious for getting it stuck on parking stops.

Hahha! Yes it's a thought. Not stuck on it. I stuck with the stock exhaust.

The SVTs were the only Focus model to make waves on non-Ford car forums and I loved that Ford made an effort to compete with the Hondas of the world but it seemed tepid sales made Ford decide not to follow up with another and gave us a weak ST model and then a few years of a middling MK2 which pretty went unoticed among competing sport compact enthusiasts til they came out with the 3rd gen.

The SVTs still hold a special place in my mind from when Sport Compact magazine slobbered all over it and I still have that issue along with the one that introduced the Focus in '99.

I wasn't trying to be an ass about my comment. It's just difficult to convey meaning through words on a screen. My Focus sits about the same height on stock SVT suspension. Ok, so the wheels are plasti-dipped and not painted lol.

I have that same issue also. I used to have 4 of the 6 Focus Fanatics magazines also, but I gave them away to a local fanatic. Not sure if he still has them or not but he's a real Focus nut since he has 3 of them now.
