  • Ford Model: focus 1.6

Posted 18 December 2009 - 06:20 PM

Hi all.just joined the site as i bought a 2000 focus earlier this week.my names Nick and im from sheffield (but you probably guessed that ;) ) really loving it.it has been really looked after and has a good service history.looks and feels like brand new.i stil cant believe how quiet engine is

anyway bit of info on the car. its a 1.6 LX in citrus yellow and is on 16" TSW alloys. it is tinted all way round and has had rear lights changed and a twin pipe powerflow exhaust system.

as future plans go i wasnt to keen on the rear lights at first as im not really into them lexus style lights but then i think they look allright with tints so not sure on them yet.then im going to look at colour coding the sideskirts and bumpstrips then look at lowering a little. im really new to the focus so im sure ill be looking through your pics to see what i fancy doing after that.

heres a couple of pics.ill post more when weather gets a bit better.

Like the colour, needs lowering though and I don't think the blue on the rims goes with the rest of the car

yeah i agree mate.i had my astra lowered 40mm before i got this so feels really high when im in it.ill probably have look at adjustable coilovers so can get it sitting just right

Like the colour, needs lowering though and I don't think the blue on the rims goes with the rest of the car


i forgot to mention that about the wheels.its sort of a big locking nut but the bloke i bought car off didnt have the remove tool/spanner and trying to find one is finding harder than i thought (none on ebay) probably just going to end up getting them removed at a garage and see how they look with it off.

Really nice car and Welcome to the forums :}


cheers pal.ill be floating around the forums so ill see you all there
