It's also a very pretty car in black, though for some reason the bumper overhang on yours is about 3 times that of any Focus i've ever seen.

All it needs are some tasteful alloys and lowered slightly, and it's a very nice looking car.

America requires the 15mph bumpers which makes alot of cars ugly. Esp my Legacy...the JDM bumpers are much sexier

I thought that all C6 Vettes had drilled brakes? One in my neighbourhood has the drilled brakes and is the lowest model.

Nice vette! :thumbsup: Same one my dad is gonna get. Tell me how you like it 8)

Yea, the Focus definatly looks better in a hatchback then in a sedan. The sedan is butt ugly, but the hatch is nice! It does look good in black! Have fun with it!

Dark Templer 102, we also have a 04 STi and its quite fast! Very fun!

Damn, that sucks. Did they tear up the car or just take the tires and wheels?

They just took the tires and wheels. About four weeks ago, there was an unsuccessful attempt to break into the car though, presumably to get the radio. :thumbsdown:

Nope. If I'd have wheel locks, pros wouldn't have been stopped by that, and novices would at least have damaged the rims. The insurance doesn't cover that though. When the rims are stolen however, I get my money back from them. Sounds paradox, but I can't change it.

Hey! I just got a set of cheap rims just like that from this guy down by the river!



ok ok. Sorry. That sucks man. I've been told about the wheel lock thing by a few of my buddies too. Its like people who leave their doors unlocked so they wont damage the doors/windows/trim trying to get in a grab the 30$ cd player in the dash.

Honestly, thats the reason I'm staying away from flashy or big money interior mods. Heck, I'm even going to sell my Business CD player (its a hot OEM upgrade for all the tape deck BMW's around) so no jerk wad will break in to grab it.

Any damage to the pan? I hear that a huge problem with the 'up on blocks' wheel steal.

I haven't found any damage apart from the right door sill yet. I still have to take a detailed look though.

What bugs me the most about this is that I'm pretty much forced to lock away and watch over all my property just to not have it stolen. It's sad that so many people have no respect for the belongings of others. Rather than earning the money to buy them, they go and steal. And I actually have to alter my way of living to make sure nothing is stolen.

Where exactly do you live? I never saw that happening before.

But you can always drive to Poland to buy your stuff back ;)
