Betke's 2013 Focus SE

Hello all, after a few days of surfing through the fourm, I've figured it out for the most part.
I just got my 2013 Focus SE Sedan a couple weeks ago. It has the sport appearance package which is a plus from the start. This is my first personal car that is truly mine! This is my first build thread as well, so all comments are welcomed. I'm new to all this so, help a brotha out! Haha

Its a slippery but excited slope once the modding starts. You'll love the difference in drivability! These cars take to bolt ons really well

We've had some crappy weather the past few days, but I snapped a couple pictures today. Got a close up of my wheels since they're probably one of my favorite points in the car.
My FSWERKS RMM should be in the mail today, and I will be posting updates this weekend as my exhaust and these first few mods are done. My dad and also have the snorkel delete and drop in filter planned as well.

Just drove fours to come home from school for the weekend. Then went straight and dropped my car off at the exhaust shop! I'm picking her up in the morning! Super stoked!

Well after a much needed trip home this weekend, here's the progress so far!

Flowmaster 80 series custom exhaust, I love how it came out. The sound is perfect IMO. I got two $23 6in tips off of eBay and our exhaust guy did a tremendous job on his welds and overall.

After a little bit of fighting with the shroud in the engine bay, dad and I decided to leave the snorkel as he didn't see much of a need to actually remove it. But we did do a drop in filter with a cheaper hi-flow filter and the cover still fit! Nice!! Sounds great too!

Installed my fswerks rmm insert. Was a very easy upgrade. Did it as we changed the oil. Took probably less than five minutes. I definitely notice a better response to the pedal. My more noticeable vibrations seemed to ride away after about 15 miles of driving or so.

I also got my TFB emblem overlays in the mail just in time before my trip home! I got those bad boys on as well. Haha I did plasti-dip my front whiskers too. I think I like the whiskers black with the fog bezels chrome.

Can't hate on a black sedan lol. The snorkel delete does make a big difference, I tried with and without and there's no way it's going back on. Is it just axle-back exhaust?

Some bolt ons... I wouldn't suggest a strut tower brace.
