original:

photoshopped:

i de-badged the front, removed the license, lowered it, and shortened the antenna (that was kinda by accident hehe)

i don't have a focus at the moment, have an SVT 'tour...but man...thinkin that an SVT focus will def. be my next car when the new styling gets released in the US...

also, do you guys know if the RS or anything w/ 4 wheel drive will become an option for the US focus?

last i heard, SVT was doing pretty shitty with the focus, so that's kinda opening up the door for the RS potentially making it's way here. never know.

I hope you're not waiting for the "new styling" that's shown in those pictures, 'cause you'll be in for a long wait. Ford has publicly said that they have no plans to bring the "new" Focus to the US yet. So Europe gets a fresh, new Focus, and we will get redesigns of the current Focus for at least several more years.

As for the RS, that's anybody's guess right now - I think it would be great as an "image car" to combat the STi and the EVO, but I seriously doubt Ford will bring it over...

so i just found this website that has the RS body kit [:p]
http://www.european-parts.net/rs.htm
turns out to be around 3K though...yikes
well here's the specific breakdown:
body kit (fenders)- $2,509.76
" " w/ rims- $3,115.55
" " w/ spolier- $3,458.13
but who knows, if i save up, maybe i'll get a focus and put on the kit...i dunno, i'd really like an SVT, but a ZX3 might even be fine w/ that body kit on it [wiggle]

Actually, SVT4ME, I read an article in a magazine that stated that 2 of Ford's cars, the Mustang & the Focus, are supposed to get a major redesign in 2005.

Mustang, yes. Those who haven't seen it yet can go here -

http://autoweek.com/cat_content.mv?...=carnews&loc_code=index&content_code=01857956

That's a camouflaged tester, but you get the basic idea of what it will look like.

Focus, yes, too - but not for us. I can't remember where I read it, but they're not planning on selling the redesigned Focus here - yet. The current one is selling well enough that they're going to keep selling it and recoup the cost of all the tooling, etc. necessary to build the car. They are planning on "freshening up" the Focus for the US, but it won't be the same car that Europe is getting.

OH yeah, also I forgot to welcome jmgilman to the forum! I was actually looking for a used SVT Contour when I came across my Focus - great car, although the single choice of interior color (blue) I wasn't too crazy about.

I thought they were at least gonna change to the more recent front end of the european focus to the US I am glad they arent bringing over the complete redesign because mine still isnt paid off and i don't wanna feel even worse bout still paying for a car when the new model is out
