Hi guys im new to this forum and also the Ford scene. Im looking for a new car as my current one ( Vectra B) has some big bills looming :( I had almost been sold to the golf mk4 tdi 130bhp but by reading through golf forums alot of people have had alot of good things regarding focus' handling etc. I dont know what mark model it is im looking at but its the one before last i think 2003-4 models ive seen a couple on auto trader and they do seem a good buy. for example i saw a 04 plate 1.8 wtih just 38k miles for £4000 Im curious to know what you would spec focus you would recomend me. Being only 20 its unfeasable for the st170 and RS models are teh TDCI anygood ? In good time i will probably be looking at upgrading suspension and engine componants so what model would be best for that ? I do prefer the look of the 3door models. What are the ups and downsides to the focus ? Thanks for taking your time to read this and i appreciate any replys.
