New SVT owner.

Hey all. I just picked up an 03 orange SVTF yesterday. Has audiophile system, but needs some work. Ill probably be snooping the marketplace for some parts.

Just in case, anyone know of a good place to get cheap svt front bumper, ac lines, and 3 door rear windshield? If I cant find a good deal on the bumper I may just put a regular one on there. But the SVT one would be nice since it is the SVT model.

Im completely new to the Focus world, and actually this is my first domestic car. Its just a little project for now, as I daily drive a Honda s2000 hardtop and have a 92 civic as a dedicated track/autox car.

Well, heres to (hopefully) a good car with few disappointments.

NICE BABY!!!

Ah I see ... I haven't heard of Big Spring.

And I use to work a few months in Midland / Odessa. Empty area but reminds me of a small version of DFW (Dallas-Fort Worth)

There are a good amount of members in your area though ... so you could still meet up with some Focus peeps and get them to AutoX with you.

I havent seen any Focuses at our AutoXs here. The Porsche club puts on a great one here and the course is a lot of fun. Ours isnt SCCA sanctioned though, so no points and you only run for your own time, but we still make a competition out of it. Its funny to see the owners of cars worth tens of thousands of dollars when they see the times a Honda Civic is putting up against them. Last even there were about 20 cars and I came in 3rd fastest.

I wouldnt mind meeting some other Focus owners in my area and be able to get some parts local. Is there a regional forum for west Texas?

No ... the regional section for TX is just TX ... All of TX ...

And we are of course all over the place.

None of the focuses in that area ... that I know of ... autoX.

That's why I said you should convince them.

It's tons o fun ... and I can't wait to get back into it myself.

Surprising that you guys don't have a SCCA Sanctioned one.

Oh and on the Porsche peeps ... lol ... when I autoX'd I took out a few BMWs and a Porsche and a few Mustangs at the last event myself and another focus member went to.

They also were stunned and irate. But hey ... these little cars can turn. And well.

That's why you will love the handling ability of your newly acquired SVT.

I recommend you take it with you and run in Stock Form ... you will be pretty surprised how well it will do.

Then when you change JUST the TIRES ... it will be even better.

When I ran stock once ... I actually kept up in time with some stock S2000s.
