Accessories/Mods

I installed rear slash guards tonight. It was the easiest install I've ever done. They fit great, look good and look like they will provide good protection. You will need a Torx screwdriver or a 5/16 allen wrench for the screws. It looks like the fronts are a little more involved and I'm planning on installing them this weekend. I'll post pics when I'm done. I'm also having my windows tinted this Friday. Minnesota law only allows 50%, even at that, it should provide some shading and protection. I also checked into clear protective film for the front end. Because of the size of the bumper and grille he quoted me $475 for the bumper and grill and $125 for the hood. I'm only going with the hood, to much $$ for it all. I'm not a big modder so that's about all I'm planning to do. I'd be interested to read and see what others are planning on doing to their Foci.

I've had thoughts about adding the splash guards as well. A few of your images would be a great help in deciding!

Thanks!

Here's what I have planned for our 2012 SE 5-door:
  • 16" OEM (non-Ford) aluminum wheels - Being cheap, I will be re-using the factory tires til they wear out. Plus I don't need to upgrade to 17's or 18's since the car is only a fun hauler. I have two wheels in-hand, and will be receiving the other two early next week. I will post pictures/info once I have the new wheels mounted.
  • Winter rims/tires - As funds allow, I want to pick up another set of aluminum wheels to run winter-rated tires for the snow.
  • Window tint - Having come from an Explorer, we like having the rear darkened. Plus I removed the cargo cover, so I want the back area more concealed from prying eyes.
  • Rear receiver hitch - This will be used for our bicycle rack when we want to transport our mountain bikes.
  • Exhaust - I'm torn about this one. I don't want it to sound ricey.
I may also consider an intake/tune as well, but that's not high on the list.

I haven't checked my air filter yet since I haven't figured out how to reach the back bolt of the air filter. But the k&n e-2993 is cone shaped. Is that the same for the factory installed filter?

It appears so! Here's the filter w/ list of vehicles that it will fit on. 2012 Focus is right on top:

Also, here's the URL of the K&N oil filter for the 2012 (K&N model #: HP-1002):

Has anyone ordered a 2012 with the exterior protection package, or installed them afterwords? I didn't get them on my original order, but if they don't mess with the look too much, I'm definitely thinking of grabbing some.

If anyone has some pix to post, that'd be very helpful.

TIA,

-B
