Love this car, glad to see you've been enjoying it in OEM form.

Looks like you've selected your next mods perfectly.

Part # on those Bilsteins?

First post has been updated.

I am still not sure if I will be setting up this car for SCCA STF class or not. The car is so enjoyable to drive in the stock form that I am afraid that I am going to mess it up.

If more people understood this, I feel like we would have a lot more well modified Foci on the road.

And those OMP pedals are the ONLY pedals people should use in these cars. They are absolutely perfect.

I really wish at times I hadn't classed myself into STF. I really need to step up my game for STF. Look forward to seeing the direction this goes.

The plate choice is somewhat problematic with the existence of the ST F(ocus).

But yes, it does point to the future well. lol

Are your lights the swivel lights or the HID version?

Neither. They are just the Halogen ones with updated lamps. Imported from Germany ;)
That's cool, I didn't realize there was a non-swivel halogen version. I ended up disconnecting power from the motors in my headlights. The engine vibrations were messing with the accelerometer used to operate the swivel feature.

Hmm whats the advantage to using the mazda 3 sway bar and control arms in the back?
Mazdaspeed 3 rear control arm have a huge reinforcement plate welded on the control arm since the stock rear sway bar on Mazdaspeed 3 is 26mm. and there are many more options for the the rear sway bar for Mazda 3 than focus. I also like the design of the rear sway bar bushing of the Mazda better as it doesn't bind like the focus does.

I assume that these are a direct swap?
