Don't know about exhaust sounds ok....just not feeling the exit point.

What company did you use for the headlight tint?? Do they offer it for the Machs ??

And illegal in many states and it just does not work on a Focus or many other cars;keep it out the back since that does look a bit cheap. Just being honest and no "to each his own".
Just no purpose to a side exit and why chance getting somebody a burned getting into the back seat and the "HOT" sticker is awful cheesy.

Still a nice car but it seems you're trying too hard;sometimes simple is better.

You really don't have many nice things to say unless it's about your wifes Focus, do you

These threads aren't really for the intent of flaming. Yes, it's the Internet. But sometimes you could think about what you're wanting to say, and then tell yourself to do this-

Sure seems like honesty isn't the best policy around here and I just gave an opinion and it does look dumb. I say lots of nice things about people's cars but you seem to be missing that. Yeah,I'll say something if I don't like it or if I like it. What's wrong with an opinion just because I don't agree with your's.
I thought forums were for open opinions or is this forum for slapping the OP on the back and worshipping everything he does in this thread? I don't think the OP thinks that way.

Flaming and having an constructive opinion or a fact (side exhaust is illegal if it didn't come that way) aren't the same but I guess I'll apologize for ruffling feathers and be on my merry way but grow a little skin since it's just my opinion.

Carry on ladies and gentlemen

I think if opinions are asked for, then it's ok. But if you're randomly saying you don't like someone's car and what they're doing to it, it's kind of d!ick-ish.

I did that chop, just played with the color till I thought it looked good. If you are going to re-paint your car, most auto paint shops can mix you any color any shade you want. Just show them that pic and I bet they can come up with a very close match.

I was also concerned about the legality and it's an appearance only mod but you are introducing heat and exhaust fumes right under the passenger door and sitting at a light you'll have exhaust fumes going right into the the cabin if the windows are down.
Why is that a good mod? Just because it looks questionably good nobody is going to have a real opinion or a concern for informing the OP to it's legality or a problem? It looked bad on the Civics of yore in the '90s and it still just doesn't look right on a modern fwd car.
I'm a car guy to the fullest and yes,I pit function before form so it's just my nature.

I've never randomly picked on his car as I've posted more than a few things about his car and til now nobody cared.
