Sold the Focus

Sorry fanatics but I decided to sell my focus and I have bought an 04 nissan 350z. The reason i decided to buy the 350z is because i decided that modding up my focus wasnt worth it. It's not a bad car but isnt as fast as i thought it could be. I'll still stop in every once in awhile and tell you guys what ive done so far to it.

Wow. Very NICE upgrade Did you look at a G35 to? I love those things. If, I had a choice between the two. I think, I would get the infiniti hehe. Dont go beating up on poor little foci's now

I fell the same way. I love my focus but I need alittle more on the performance side that's why I'm getting an SRT-4. I know some ppl may say "it's still a neon" but they obviously have not driven it. I beat my friends mildly modded WRX with the stock one at the dealership.

Yea the SRT-4 are nice cars for the price which is mostly around 20 grand+ they get 0-60 in about 5.5 seconds and have 230hp.

Zetec is a cheap ripoff of vtec and is nothing like vtec, i dont even think you can feel it kick in. "

Anyone else feel their zetec kicking in?
