Itís $$$ to do that with these. Not just a badge. Different front/rear bumpers, grille, exhaust, spoiler, and wheels.

Iím gonna try and find another stock one to see.

The Mustang i was talking about was a 93-97 which involves pretty much a whole front end swap. The owner is a 20 something year old discount tire worker whom when i told him that its all fun and games until they actually take him for a real cobra and pull up to him at the light his stupid response was that "they could get it if they wanted to"; pretty confident for someone pushing under 250hp. Take a trip over to the camaro forums and you will see RS owners doing ZR1 conversions, either way good kill though as they took the race; the days my car is running like complete shit i ignore everyone trying to race me as either way its always V6 cars. Currently experimenting with a 30/70 mixture of E85 but the driveline sounds are keeping me at bay from letting her eat

I had to let that go too & I miss it...... The wife just got a new car too, and honestly I like it a lot.

She got a 17í Jetta with the 1.4T 5-speed. The interior is simple and too the point. No 8í long dash board, no crazy infotainment system etc.

The car goes, and looks good doing it. Super clean body lines.

Iím going to talk her into wheels and suspension. The factory setup is just steelies and hubcaps with a fist of wheel gap. Iíll post pics here soon.

That was the one thing i looked at when i took my wife to get the Camry, i made sure it came with the sport suspension and the 18 inch wheels and you would not believe the difference it makes during hard cornering to the basic LE package. Sorry to hear about the truck man, i had to let go of my CB and my wife's CD when we got the cars.

H311RA151N seems to have made some friends! H311RA151N seems to have made some friends!
So I want the Focus. I've been contemplating my next daily (for like two years) and after doing the calculations it came down between a Focus ST and an EcoBoost mustang. The Focus has four doors so that was easy. The newer Si was in the running too but it isn't as mod friendly.

Tell me about this thing. How do you like it? How does it drive? Pros and Cons? I take it the Fiesta is comparable to the Focus. They look really similar.

Everybody that I speak with says the Fiesta is more fun of the two.

Pros:
Lightweight car
Great factory brakes. Damn good.
Transmission feels better to me than the Focus
Handles amazingly
Cheaper to modify & Flash tunes available for cheap

Cons:
Blend door actuator gears snap and cause clicking(hasnít happened to me yet)
Stock suspension is over dampened (easily fixed with springs)
Standard econobox issues with rattles in the interior
Small car. No cargo space with rear seats installed.

So about what I expected. Yours has quite a bit less miles than a few I've seen.

The only con you mentioned that might bother me is the econobox characteristics in the interior.

The Accessport is a must. I haven't used one but I'm somewhat familiar with the SCT.

I'm very impressed with the cost vs the performance with these cars. I need to test drive one here soon.

Thanks for the advice!

I just started taking off rattling panels and lined them with the soft side of velcro tape. For the places too small for the tape, I used a small amount of 3M strip caulking. My car doesn’t rattle like others do. That’s with stiffer trans mount and poly engine mount inserts.

Just had to do brakes today. 20k on the stock front pads/rotors and they’re done. Rears have about 4mm left.

These come with 2 types of brakes. One is the all season package which has the less aggressive pads, and one isn’t with the high performance pads that make an ungodly amount of brake dust.

Dealership wanted $400 for pads and rotors so I just went to O’AdvanceNapaZone and got the best of everything for 200.. no complaints after I bedded them.
