im new to the forum, i was wondering if a 02 standard focus se (94000m) is a better deal than a 98 standard firebird (74000m) 6 cylinder?
One can't really say which is a better deal if you don't provide the price for each...
5495 for the focus and 5995 for the firebird
Newsflash. Whether we know the year, make model and price or not, nobody here can decide "whitch" (:roll:) is best because we don't know "whitch" (:roll:) is better deal for what. Before you type another word, think out what criteria you define as better and THEN you can get some reasonable help.
ok well then whats the general feel of a focus over a firebird? is there
anyone that has an opinion on both cars?
please if someone's going to post please just help me out with the question i'd apprciate no more lame flames.
i can tell you that a focus is going to be nothing like a firebird
if your on a budget, id say the focus, but if you have a garage and tools...
Another e-tard who just doesn't get it. A Focus feels like a small economy car. A 6-cylinder Fireturd feels like something a 40 year old divorced secratary would drive to make her look young. You still haven't defined what it takes to make a car a better deal in your eyes. Until you can competently do that, you're just wasting bandwidth.
:clap: :clap: Hahaha.
The first time you combated me, i felt like an idiot, and fought back.
But i think you sober'd up my ignorance, and i now appreciate how much ass you kick.
is the focus 1.6, 1.8, 2.0, 2.2 litre, diesel/petrol, old shape/facelifted
whats the firebird look like? rusty, bad shape, needs work?
id have the focus for practicality, efficiency etc etc
You haven't supplied us with enough information, pictures of the cars,
I dont think the Focus received a facelift in the US, as their original
model looked more like our facelift (with integrated indicators in the
radiator grille.......although dated now, in 2001 it was probably deamed
ground breaking, lol)
I'm also not sure if as many engines were offered that side of the pond, I think they might have Focused (excuse the unintentional pun, lol) on the larger, 2.0-litre model! Also, I've never known of a 2.2-litre model, are you refering to the ST Focus? as I'm sure that's a 2.4-litre Volvo turbo engine! :thumbs:
Just for your info, the US spec '02 Focus SE was available only with a 2.0l gas (petrol) engine, either SOHC (VIN P) or DOHC (VIN 3).
Thanx for the info. They made a SOHC Focus? I'm assuming it was an 8-valve
By the way, did you guys in the US ever have a Focus like the following? as that's our facelifted model, from 2001 - 2005...
Facelift 2001 2005:
Pre-facelift 1998 - 2001:
You would be assuming correctly.
Blimey....the last 8-valve petrol we had was the 2.3-litre in the Ford Galaxy, which, if memory serves, they stopped putting in it when it was renewed in about 2000. I edited the obove post by the way....just another curious question...
Don't quote me on this but I don't think we got the facelift until a couple years ago (2004?), still on the Mk I version.
I see.....so you dont have the brand new look version either?
i think the five door looks better in ST form
Nope Cliffy, we've still got the Mk 1 Focus as stated earlier by hobo. The
facelifted Focus we got is the one pictured below...somewhat a 'hybrid'
between the Mk 1 and Mk 2 in terms of styling.
*Note how the head lights are somewhat similar to the Mk 2's and the grill looking near-identically.
Not being exactly sure when the facelift occured either, I began seeing them here at around the end of 2004/beginning of 2005.
you know,, the front styling on that focus looks like the ford mondeo
(i mean the headlights and grille)
That's more of a facelift than our Mk1 received, lol. Bear in miknd that the lastb pic I showed wasn't a facelift, but a brand new model, our facelift featured revised front lights and grille, and new trim, as I posted somewhere above :laughing:
I think he just wants to know what a better deal in terms of the prices for
the car value.
But like someone said earlier the focus is basically an econo-box lol.
