  • Ashy Larry: another year, another car.

    Ashy Larry: another year, another car.

    Actually, picked his one up on Black Friday.
    used 2014 Ford Focus ST with ST3 package.
    -Heated Recaro seats (to match my daughter's Recaro ;)
    -Auto leveling HID w/LED accents
    -MyFordTouch with Sync and quite possible the most "undefeatable" entertainment system in existence.

    Reason for getting rid of the V: selling current house and buying a bigger one. Needed less income to debt on my credit and a bit more for savings. Once the new house clears, looking to get into a Tesla Model S or Model X.

    Honestly, I had mods ready before I even got the car. So far, have these installed:

    -K&N Drop in Filter
    -Saris Bicycle Trunk rack
    -AVS Window Shades
    -FSWERKS Short Shift Plate
    -JBR 530g Heavy Shift Knob
    -"ST" E-brake handle Cover plate
    -Lamin-X Fog Covers/Protection Vinyl on hatch
    -Sound Symposer coupling mod
    -"ALO" front lip
    -Steeda Black oval badges
    -QTP Exhaust Wireless Cutout
    -Magnaflow 4" Exhaust Tips
    -RECARO Performance Ride seat for 18 month old

    Mods in the office awaiting install:
    -FRRP Pro Cal w / Tune and Spark Plugs (good for about 260 WHP/350 WTQ)
    -FRRP Snorkel (CAI)
    -Garage Line Hood Struts
    -Gloss Black Roof Vinyl
    -Custom Ford Steering Wheel Overlay Vinyl
    -Custom Smoke Tail light Signal Overlays
    -Custom ST3 DRL Mod Relay install
    -ST Badges for lower side skirts

    Plans:
    After the tune and mods on the waiting list go in, maybe some wheels. Keeping this while I get the new home and then moving on to the Tesla.

    Got my modded exhaust installed at Road Runner. Definitely worth it since I don't want more noise when driving around my office of with my wife.

    Exhaust: QTP QTEC33K Wireless Low Profile.
    Location: Between factory downpipe and factory resonator
    Total Price: $320: Around $270 shipped for all parts with wireless kit, about $50 install fee at local shop.
    Thoughs: it's the perfect exhaust for me. Deafeningly loud when I want it to be, factory quiet when I need it to be, and everywhere in between. Bypasses the resonator and muffler, so it's in the most beneficial position IMO.

    Install location:



    Wireless module location:




    Added Magnaflow 4" tips just because I don't like the look of the stock one.
    $48 for parts, $50 for install.

                    Haha yeah. I really really wanted to keep the V, and just get a Fiesta ST Daily. Unfortunately, the new house comes first, so I'll just suck it up and enjoy the ride as much as I can.

                    Thanks! It's honestly a blast to drive.

                    I'm in. I'm not sure I'll get any additional suspension but honestly it's been hailed as one of the best handling FWD cars available (and cocks a wheel when it's pushed hard).


                    made an appointment with Brandon Ford to get the Ford Racing tune installed on 1/16. Can't wait for the torque!

                          Haha the Tesla will most certainly NOT be auto crossed.

                          The focus is a different story though.

                              Make sure it's an ST3! The full leather Recaros and HID headlamps are worth it.

                              2015s are just starting to hit the lot, so the 2014 prices are dipping. I wouldn't pay more than about 26000 for an ST3.

                              Good luck!

                              I get my ford Racing tune installed today in Tampa. Can.not.wait.
