Newbie here.....Tim from Chicago, IL.

Just bought a 2009 Ford Focus SE....nothing amazing...but love it. I didn't get a lot of extras or nothing...but enough to make me feel good about my purchase.

Any advice on things I should or could add to increase the life of the vehicle....and maybe performance.

I was assuming on putting in a K&N Air Filter, front shock struts, and platinum spark plugs.

Any objections???? Suggestions??? Thanks in advance

Hey guys, my names graydon... and i just thaught my life was over! lmao... lets just say i was messing around and got a whole bunch of spyware a few minutes ago and luckily i got it taken care of. Anyway, lol enough about that. I've been looking at getting a focus for the last couple years and i'm finally deciding i'm going for it. Right now i drive a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP... but i'm looking to upgrade sometime this week to a 2009 Ford Focus SES sedan. I was skimming the internet and came across this site... now where do i go for mods? lol... [werd]

New here, found you while looking for info. on how to change the air filter.
Got a 05 ZX4 SES for my son last month. He is 16, has permit, but no license til July 09.

Want to find out more info. (where to get FSM's, air filter replacement, cheap mods, how to stiffen up suspension - what springs)
Long time Ford guy - first car was 1969 Mach 1. Love the SVT products!!! had a couple cobras.
Looking forward to learning more about our 2005 Focus!!

Hi, I'm Tim.

I just picked up a black '07 ST yesterday. I don't have a lot of plans for it performance wise, but I will be getting a full paint restoration in the next few weeks. Then maybe tint the windows and upgrade the speakers and add a sub. I've got a bumper to bumper warranty until 2013 so I don't want to do anything to jeopardize that, but simple things like an intake etc are probable.

I'm mostly here to gain knowledge, hear the good and the bad, learn about the car.

My background is in off-road racing, with years of experience in chassis/suspension engineering, design, & fabrication. I also have extensive experience with shock manufacturing, rebuilding, and tuning.

As a hobby I took up photography a few years ago. I mostly shoot studio and location glamor, as well as desert and short course racing events.

Hey, yeah - I'm new.

Just bought a 2003 SVT ZX3 today. I've driven lots of Focus' in the past belonging to friends and relatives, but never an SVT. So we ran across one yesterday that looked nice, low miles, great price. Traded my wife's Saturn in on it, and brought the sucker home today.

I have a 2000 Roush Cougar that I've owned for over 7 years now, and sunk a lot of money into. I was the first person in my immediate family to ever own a Ford product, and I am now a pretty hard-core Ford guy. So I'm looking forward to a lot of years and a lot of miles from this car.

Cheers.

hey there, i was first introduced to the amazingness of ford focus about 3 years ago. my friends girlfriend had a 2002 svt and i was sold the first time riding in it. i currently have a 2004 silver zts. im in college and i recieved it as a gift from my dad for doing well in school and whatever. i really wanted a svt but he fell way short, begars cant be choosers i guess and i cant just trade it in because he would be rather angry with me so ill just have to work with it.
