yeah theyll cut it off. im pretty sure. but its wayy more expensive. usually side skirts are just add ons so they just cover the actual body skirts.

It's really up to you. It will be well worth the conversion if you are planning to go the forced induction route later down the line. If not, then you're doing it mainly tobincrease mileage and the fun factor for driving.

Hit the nail on the head right there. I do have that talon thats gonna be stupid crazy fast, but its too nice to drive daily.

Plus i want something that I did. That and im getting 29mpg. We swapped my friends 04 civic from auto to manual and he got as high as 44mpg.

and we all know that driving an auto is not fun lol.

Of course driving an auto sure is fun! Especially when you're stuck in rush hour traffic on Oahu everyday haha. If I got a stick, I'd only drive it on weekends, and keep the Focus as my DD. Traffic on a tiny island = FAIL

Who drives the white focus sedan with the blue FocusFanatics.com sticker on the lower front bumper? Saw him in traffic Saturday afternoon on the H-1 near the Radford overpass.

The 98-01 style front is nice. I still have the Hella MicroDE turn signals from my Rieger R-RX front but I'm not sure if they will fit with the OEM bumper. The housing might be a different size too.

If I were to run that look, I would go the Ghia route just to be very unique.

Anyone want a 98-01 Euro rear bumper along with the Rieger rear apron? The rear bumper won't have the reflectors/rear fog though.
