Group,
Hello...
My name is Tom Romans
My wife and I just took delivery of a 2006 Ford Focus ZX4 SES.
This will be her primary car, as it replaced her 1995 Chevy Caprice that was traded in with 174k miles.

Here is a pic I took of it tonight...


I currently drive a 1999 Chrysler 300M
Here is my car...


Tell me what mods will fit the 06's?
I don't want to do any engine mods until warranty has expired, other than a K&N drop in filter. I would like to do suspension mods...
-Strut Tower Brace
-Poly Bushings

That is it for now...

I like the car, fit and finish seem to be good.

Hope to be here for a while!!

TIA

Hi Tom!

[welcome] Welcome to FF. [welcome]

There are no suspention mods for the '06 yet, or at least that I know of. Give it another month or so and there will most likely be.[thumb]

there are strut tower bars, front and rear available from FocusSport Strut Bars

eibach also makes a kit for the 2006. As of now, I don't beleive there is a poly bushings kit for the suspension yet. Just engine mounts.

check Focus Sport, they'll have a lot of stuff you'll like.

looks nice my wife got the same car in the same color. I got the windows tinted and put rims on it and it looks 100 times beter. The rims were off my ZTS and they look allot beter on hers. but the tint is what sets it off.

I got a the same car in pitch black color last week, so far I love it, plan on upgrading the stereo system with Alpine this week, tinting the windows, getting new rims and maybe those low profile tires. Also looking to add some things to get a little more oomf out of the 4 cylinder engine although I love the gas mileage compared to the 05 mountaineer i was used to driving [:D]

so far I love my car and FF!!!

Nice!
Look into Rims and Tires for now.
No drop-in K&N or anything else for that matter. Lifetime air filter.
Replace it with a Cold Air Intake. See my sig. or the how-to's.
Strut Tower Brace is a good start. Short Throw Shifter if you've got a stick.
Both can be had from Ford Racing through your dealer and bolted on in your driveway.
Enjoy.
