Hey Guys,

Just moved to Vancouver from the UK and last week purchased a bit of nostalgia... A 2004 Ford Focus ZX3.

I previously owned a 2002 Focus Wagon which in the UK got face lifted around this time and lost the original look of the US Focus as Ford decided to not stick with a global platform.

She needs a bit of work doing but otherwise fairly happy with it.

2.0L Zetec Blacktop
Manual gear box
213,000km on the clock
Silver of some description. I need to check ETIS [ninja]

Project list:

- New headlights - Current ones are trash and no amount of sanding and coating is going to save them. *Waiting for delivery*
- New rotors and pads - They work, but vibrate a bit. Done in 2016 so need doing again.
- Rotate/Replace rear spring - I think it was put back wrong after shocks were done, same noise/problem my old MK3 UK Mondeo had.
- EML is on - Suspect O2/MAF as she was running a tad rich before it came on. Now doesn't smell so bad after it's come on weirdly.
- Potential new timing belt - No history on this one so better safe than sorry.
- All season tires so I can get up the mountains in the snow
- Move DRLs to high beams/fog lights or just another method altogether as burning low beams all day is a joke.
- Repaint some rusty bits that have been poorly dealt with.
