#268015 My Focus Titanium <3

Hey Ollie, 

 

Love what you did to the car so far, but wanted to throw a suggestion your way and see what you think of it. As most people will probably notice, I am an unreal fan of lowering the suspension and making sure the car is sitting as low as possible. (visually gives fantastic results, for the performance and the driving pleasure, it varies on each person individually :D 

You have fitted the ST alloys into it, which makes it look extremely good, but if you would even dish out about 200 quid on a nice, reliable set of coil-overs and lower the car, i think you will be extremely pleased with the outcome :D 




#267693 Favourite Car Modifications

Getting some good ideas here. SeanW having a nice idea with the dash cam, was actually considering doing that to my car with the amount of lunatics on the roads of Dublin ;) I must say, some of my favourite modifications that I have a huge interest in is suspension modification. My personal favourite is the AirSuspension which allows you to control the exact amount of clearance between the car and the ground, however more viable option being either coil overs  or lowering springs (savings of around 2000 quid :D

Another modification would be changing the wheels. I have to admit I like the factory wheels on the Focus, but wheels such as the rotiforms are my personal favourites. 

One of the major changes that is constantly bugging me is the standard factory Sony 6000 CD radio that I have in the Focus. There is no AUX connection, even though there is an AUX button on the radio itself, so was considering installing an aux socket, however think the better (visually) option would be to replace the unit with a fancy double DIN and make it look the business :)

Absolutely awesome job mate :) Well impressed with that car and definitely looks the part now as well :D

Dunno if you're into this , but if this was my car the perfect finish to this would be to get a set of Coils in and lower that bad boy down :D 

Also improves handling as well , never mind looking like a little devil :P

Spread the word to as many ford drivers as you'd think would be interested and get them on here!

I'm definately game :) Been doing my bit around the Dublin/Meath/Louth area and if there is something being organised I'll get all the lads with their wee fords and more importantly our Focuses to come down and show off their pride and joys :wub:
