Charlie12's 2012 Sport build

Hi everyone,

I've been a long time reader and I'm always finding new ways to spend my money here. Most of my mod plans are complete so I thought I'd put together a build thread to chart my progress, make myself known and say hi.

In January 2013 I bought a 2012 Ford Focus Sport. Not sure what this translates to in North America but it sits below a Titanium here.

The "mods" I had done at purchase were:
  • Ford illuminated door scuff plates
  • CSA 17" Racetek alloys
  • DRL triangles







But since then
  • Tint
  • Pedals
  • LED Taillights
  • LED projector headlights (twice!!)
  • Osram LEDambient lighting
  • Smoked centre brake light
  • RallyArmor mud flaps
  • K & N Typhoon CAI
  • Morimoto XB LED fog lights
  • US Titanium fog light bezels
  • ST "velocity" inlet and snorkel delete
  • E-RMM





My future mods:
  • Eibach front and rear sway bars (to be delivered soon)
  • coilovers OR spings (Eibach Pro springs or a coilover)
  • stainless steel brake lines
  • Exhaust (magnaflow, stoffler, borla or custom)
  • Tyres (more grip)
  • Zetec S rear diffuser

I'm keen to hear any thoughts and recommendations on my future plans. Still undecided on a couple.
Also happy to give feedback on any of my mods and their suppliers if you have questions.

Happy modding!

Hey Rutherford, I've enjoyed reading your build thread too.

Unfortunately, I haven't got any night shots of the scuff plates but here's a photo



and this is from the Ford Australia website

Hey Unida,

I first bought a Spec-D set with the led strip that is also the blinker, without the halo. The right led strip would intermittently not turn on with the left. After lots of testing with the oem headlight unit and bulbs and plugs the problem was in the Spec-D unit.

Upgraded to a Spyder- "Black Halo Projector Headlights with LEDs" set from Mars Performance in Clayton (for a local warranty) and the build quality is noticeably better.

Nice car! I think you forgot to mention the ST spoiler.

I love my Steeda RSB and Magnaflow Cat-back. I recommend both

Hi Samu, thanks.

In Australia the ST spoiler is standard on our Sport and Titanium. Also I'm 99% sure my skirts are the same as the Zetec S. Again, standard trim for us.
