haha, well there were mad bugs on the car till i washed it. The front bumper was black and we hit a construction cone left out by a trucker infront of us doing about 40 after braking, thought we were going to die. No damage, bumper is fine, rock chips are there for sure, needs a respray anyways and next time I go across I will used painters tape.

H&R coilovers are the drop, thanks for the comments, cali is awsome, just today met up with some really nice guys from the JET mostly.

Accually I am asking since I am new to the focus world. I have only owned my foci for 2 months now and never really looked at all the diffent models before owning one.

yo greg happy to see you made it in one piece. love the new head lights. but i still like the yellow ones too. how long did it take to get there? did your freind drive with you? when can we expect an appearence from you on the east coast? we had a good showing last week at the raceway. we had 4 foci and javier's rental crystler 300 v6. he messed his clutch up pretty bad and had to get it replaced. at least we got to beat on the 300 in the parking lot. well i guess ill see you tonight at the gtg. lol
keep me updated on whats going down on the west side. now go catch some waves.

Hey,

It took 3 days to drive across the country making 2 overnight stops in St. Louis, Missouri, Galup, New Mexico (Arizona Border), and then onto San Diego that next day, which included a 200 mile detour to the 4 corners.

1st day : left at 7 am, stopped 10pm central time, 1000 miles
2nd day : left at 9am central, stopped at 3 am mountain time, 1200 miles
3rd day : left at 9am central, arrived at 10 pm pacific time 1000 miles

Trip wasnt bad at all except for that cone we hit, but no biggie, I went across with a friend which is recommended. And redbull is your friend along with coffee. There is nothing outside major cities and the west coast and new york. Dont speed in PA on the Pike if you go that way. Rest of the time, use judgement but through Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Cali it was a fluctuation of 80mph to 90mph to 100mph to sometimes 110mph.

Recomend painters tape the front bumper if you dont like bugs, along with your side mirrors. I didnt of course.

Thats about it, next time ill be in ny is december for two days then onto france, then back to ny in january. But sounds like a good turn out, ill keep you guys updated and see you guys soon enough.
