I've been lurking here for awhile, decided to make an account. I was handed down a 2004 Ford Focus LX (2.0 SPI) earlier this year. I've done a couple basic things. I changed out the air filter for a K&N. Put full synth oil in also. I have yet to get my nicer stereo from my prevous car. I have my car on cardomain. The pictures on there don't show the wheel covers I just put on.

I'm not mechanically inclined, but I plan to try. I'm thinking about entering in a few shows. I've favorited a few of the how-tos for some simple/cheap mods. I'm a college student, so money's tight, but I'd like to make it into something more than it is.

Hi

Hi my name's Danielle, I live in southwest FL. About a week and a half ago I purchased my first new car...kind of. I got a great deal on an 08 Focus. It's so awesome. I suppose it was a demo car or a company car for a while because it wasn't what you call "brand new". Anyway, I bought it as a used car because it only had 1600 miles on it! So that dropped the price alot, because the interior is all leather and if I got my same car brand new it would have been 3-4K more. I've got all the pros of an SES like sync, monocromatic door handles, 6 CD changer and the list goes on. I still can't believe that I found a new car for the price of a used one. AWESOME :]

Hello everyone. I’m fairly new to the Focus scene but, by lurking in these forums for the past few months, I’ve managed too learn a lot about my Foci and have become quite the Focus Fanatic thanks to all of the very knowledgeable people in this fantastic site. [ffrocks]
I drive a 2008 Vista Blue Coupe SES, which is stock for the time being, and I love it. I do have a set of Enkei RS7’s just waiting to be mounted on my ride, just as soon as I get some tires to go with them. So yeah, I hope everyone doesn’t mind me asking a question from time to time about my ride. Any and all help in my quest to really make my ride my own, will be greatly appreciated. [:)]

Well all of you new comers!!! If you have specific ?'s try using the search engine first with key words. Look for newer dated posts as they will be more current info. Also please feel free to give your .02 in the 09 ford focus threads, Ford has asked for our opinion.

If after days of long searching with no luck ( [email protected] days) then PM me your question or make a new thread in the appropriate area.



Welcome again, enjoy.

Hey guys, I am new to this site and I also just bought a 2005 ZX5 Hatch SES. I believe the color is called rustic orange. I am looking for a place to ask questions and do a little research. I am very happy with the way my car handles and it is a big step up from my 1997 Chevy Cavalier!!!!!!

New Focus Driver

Hi all,

I will pick up my new 2008 focus in a few hours. [clap] I am giddy with excitement. I purchased a Vista Blue Focus with Stone leather seats (none were available this late in the year with heated seats) and a 6CD audio system (Again none were available with Audiophile). It hase Anti-lock breaks with traction control and a moon roof (an option that I wan't looking for but didn't really care about either).

I think the first thing I plan to do is upgrade the speakers and perhaps add an under seat powered sub. So any though on good drop in replacement speakers will be welcome. Also, I plan to do the grounding mod.

I have been trolling the board for about 2 weeks now to help me make the decision to buy, and I have to say you guys are very helpful and your high praise for the Focus really helped me make the decision to buy. Glad to be here!

A powered sub that I was looking at one time is made by infinity. It is the bass link model. My friend had one in his subcompact and it fill the space verynice, and added some boom boom too.

Here's a link that I found.

Lost son finally comes home....

Hi Focus Fanatics, [wave]

Newbie here and excited about joining this online community. After buying imports for over 20 years, I'm ready to come home. I come from a family that purchased Ford products exclusively--the idea of owning anything else was never entertained. I broke away from tradition however; I have never owned anything by one of the 'Big Three'. Current owner of an '05 Corolla and bored to the point of tears. Good car, but unrewarding to drive.

I really do think the 2008 Focus--coupe and sedan--are awesome! For me, it was love at first sight. My tentative plan is to purchase the '09 when they arrive at dealerships (most likely the sedan).

I hope to learn a great deal prior to purchase from FF! I admit to having some fear about reliability of Ford products, and it's my hope that you'll be able to dispel any fears or myths (and there's a lot of them out there) so that my purchase will be both a 'done deal' and one that I'll consider a wise choice long after the newness of the car has worn off. Thanks for rolling out the welcome mat! [:)]

Welcome to the Forums, you will love it here. As far as help goes there is always at least one person who has already done what ever you will be trying to do. So far none of my questions have gone unanwsered.

As far as Buying your 09 focus if you can wait about 3 months i would recommend you custom order your car the way you want it without all the stuff you don't. I know they already have 09 fusions and mustangs so it may not be to early to order yours. That way you have the first one around[8D]

Hey, thanks! There's a level of enthusiasm here @ FF that's contagious. I've not seen this degree of excitement in other forums I've visited.

I appreciate the advice regarding the new car purchase. I'd be content with an '08 if I located one with very low miles and the options I want. Then again, the new car experience all over again might be just the thing I need given that it's a Focus. Either way, I'm stoked about this car. There are some great pics of the current model in the gallery...I was up later than usual last night just admiring. Glad I bought my Toyota after all because in comparing the two, it intensifies the lust I have for Ford's product.

Very cool of you to send out your welcome and maybe our paths will cross again here on the forums.[driving]
