  1. Heh, thanks, it was fun first car, although it didn't drive as well as Focus. But at least parts were cheap. As for lowering springs, today I just cut 2 dead coils on each side and now it sits much better. Pics tomorrow.
  2. Does anyone have pictures of lowering springs in their car. (estate)? I just installed Fk's and front did drop, bit rear didn't. Format thought was I turned them upside down, bit the writing on springs is not upside down, so I'm guessing that's not the problem.
  3. Hello, I know there are small chances, but has anyone tried fitting 9,5j wheel onto their MK2 Focus? 18 inch, ET40.
  4. I figured it was time to make my own thread since I will own the car for at least one year. BTW, I'm from Slovenia, so you know where to put me on the map. Got this car from my dad in the spring. Took it because I knew the car was fine, got big service recently, so no big investments mechanical wise for some time. I'm coming from a 3dr Golf mk3, which was pretty low, I was always something doing on it. Here's a pic if someone would be interested. Focus is a wagon/estate/turnier/caravan whatever you like to call it. I really don't need that much space, two doors and 4 seats do it for me, but here I wasn't been able to choose. On the other hand mk2 focus to me looks better in estate version than hatchback. Almost forgot. It's 1.6 tdci with 100 hp. Yes, 100 hp. I still don't know if it is upgraded 90hp model or donwgraded 109 hp model.Weird, since you basically don't see 100hp anywhere but I guess it was some kind of a special edition. The trim is called "fifty", which adds to the standard Focus 3 spoke wheel, rear parking sensors (I don't know if those are oem or aftermarket), heated seats, heated windshield. Ok enough word, here is a pic on winter setup. First mod was to change climate control buttons from the ones on aliexpress 😛 Then it was time to go on summer setup. Wheels are from before, but I won't change them this year, cause they look fairly ok and the tires will last just enough through this season. Momo something 8j et45 on 225/45/17. Also did my callipers in yellow. Updates are comng, but slowly, cause I'm a student.
  5. There is a CC bumper conversion, but I found a ST bumper for 100€ and now I wonder if anyone have experiences what do I need to change when going from standard mk2 bumper to ST?
  6. Dang, those exhaust pipes look huge Nice car btw, really like the color.
  7. If someone else was searching. It turns out even V50 has the same suspension than s40, hatchback Focus etc. So strictly parts only made for focus estate.
  8. I know V50/S40/C30/Mazda3/Focus are based on the same platform, just this part bothers me about rear suspension. Thanks for your research :)
  9. Hello, I am wondering, wheather Focus estate has the same rear susupension mount than Volvo V50? Estate has shock mounted at an angle and longer coil spring ( different than hatch).
  10. How is the reception? better than oem? Mine is snapped too, and I want something shorter with just as good reception as oem.
  11. Hello, I want to lower my car, but as I have seen, hatch and wagon do have different rear suspension. Excatly what? The problem is I almost can't find coilovers for my wagon, for hatch there are some. Would it be possible to buy hatch ones and modifiy them to fit?
  12. You didn't give a link. I'm interested also in CC bumper.
  13. Hello, nice looking Focus. I'm from Slovenia, recently got a black turnier 1.6 tdci. But mine is still on the start of the journey. If you find two cc bumpers, let me now :D
