The Focus handles better than alot of small cars right from the box. I'm happy with the little bit of added response and power my minimal engine mods have added (SVT airbox & snorkel, new plugs/ wires and an early 2k intake mani). I've done far more work to my interior and exterior so I'd have to go with the previous two responses. You can make your car look damn nice without having to kick the crap out of people who think their car goes faster. Only thing that's going to earn you is tickets... quick.

Making yourself stand out from the crowd is a good way to get pulled over...I'm not saying don't do any exterior mods, but I'd keep it low-profile.

I've got an LX 4-door with the SPI...i KNOW my car won't be fast...and by no means its not a show car, so i'm just doing whatever little mods to somewhat improve the look, and driveability...its my daily driver so i'm not gonna go FI...if it wasn't critical though...i'd be off to the scrapyard in a second.

Plus, the focus looks great as it is!
