Just got my 2004 ZX3 and was happy to find such an active on-line Focus community here at focusfanatics. It has been a wealth of info.

My question is: What shops in the Greater Manchester area should I know about? Where do you go to get your work done? Where do you buy your parts? I am thinking of getting some lowering springs and having them installed.

What up!!!!! No one likes to talk to me either on this thing. I live near Nashua in Mass. Place called Groton, MA. I actually bought my exhaust in Manchester from Drvin Style in that mall up there. It is a magnaflow. Very nice sound, pretty good power. Anytime you wanna get people together for ideas just reply man.

I am still contemplating whether or not to build up a Zetec and do a swap, build up the SPI I already have, or ultimately go for the V8 conversion. V8 would be the most expensive and a lot of responses I have got are "Why don't you just buy a new car"? I hate when they say that. That would be the craziest sleeper. People just wouldn't understand what happened after my car rumbled off the line like a god damn mustang. Anyways ttyl PEACE!!!!

The V8 would be awesome! What is it 450HP? The ultimate sleeper!

Thats crazy. My exhaust came in on time exactly the day they said it was. Yeah I wont mention another Drivin Style but I don't believe they had a clue. Let's just say it is in Southern New Hampshire and they no longer exhist anymore.


I haven't heard anybody talk about putting disc brakes in the back of a sedan yet. Any options out there or suggestions????

Your exactly right. I asked them questions about foci and such and they had no clue. They just started bringing up things about imports and what not. I have nothin against imports because the focus was actually in Europe first. But I think everybody knows what we are talkin about. What is really funny is that the old Drivin Style is now an art gallery hahahahahaha

Also from NH. Wazzup? Anyway, Drivin' Style is out of business. My friend at work got screwed by them. He ordered and exhaust for his Prelude (pre-paid, of course) something like two days before they shut down.
