New to focus not to the forums

Gday

Well, here I am, new to the focus forums, but not fordforums

Purchased this morning a 4d hatch focus with body kit for the Mrs

The only thing thats a downer is...

1 Air Bag
No Cruise
No power windows

But otherwise a great little car for the Mrs and kids...

Be gentle, I also purchased a Explorer and dumped the XR

Re: New to focus not to the forums

Nice choice.

My better half loves driving her Focus. Relatively good on fuel and have had zero problems with it.

As for parting with the XR, I can understand the decision. Why own a Stock XR8 when you have the Minginator. :s4

Re: New to focus not to the forums

very nice choice. I smell some covert mods underway to make her driving experience a little happier. That 1.8 needs some help. Trust me if I had a missus she'd get a Focus, or better still a new Fiesta soon to come out. His and hers Foci...
