Hey all, I'm Rob, found the forum through Google.com as I'm planning on purchasing an EK3 as my next motor and thought this would be a good site to be a part of for all the knowledge etc!

I used to drive a Ford Focus 1.8 Zetec but since getting rid of that I've been pining for some Jap! :D


My old Focus.

Already have big plans for the EK3, planning on picking one up in the next week or so if I can find the right one.

Plans:

Interior - Not too much here, uprated headunit, some subtle ice, some OEM EK9 seats.

Exterior - some nice Rota's, not sure what model, coilovers, type-r front and rear lips and spoilers.

Engine - undecided yet.

Thats all for now anyway, I will keep you all updated on the purchasing and the modding!

Cheers! 8-|

Hey Splinter, thanks very much, I've been spending some time trying to find the right one, don't want to buy one thats going to cause me problems straight away and don't want one that has been ruined already! :D

Haha, I know what you mean, the Focus didnt look like that when I got rid of it, thats the only photo I could find from when I bought it, mine went away looking a lot nicer, more like a subtle ST170.

I've always prefered subtle over bodykits or in your face! :D

At the moment £2000, maybe £3000 at a push.

Unfortunately though, if i can help it I don't really want to spend the extra 1k, would rather keep it for insurance/mods.

Because if I end up going for a 1.4i which is how its looking then i have a car that will save me money that i can use in the long run, it will be subject to a transplant once all the parts are sourced and the engine has been played with by a friend of mine so I'm not sure I want to fork out for the extra power now.

Does that kinda make sense? :- :D

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

Gibbscp, I didn't paint it black, it was a carbon fibre hood.
