Question Practically New 06 Focus ZX3

I'm going to be returning from overseas duty within the coming months and am looking to modify my stock focus. Am having trouble locating the dealers to get exactly what i'm looking for. To start I want to lower the car 1-1.5". 18" Rims and performance tires. Swap out the stock stereo and speakers and possibly get a body kit. Any suggestions on where to start? Or perhaps where I can get some sweet deals. Not really concerned with keeping the warranty on the vehicle, but being able to do so after mods would be a bonus. All suggestions welcome.

There's a guy selling a set of brand new OZ 18" rims... sounds like a steal to me.

You can do an SVT suspension.

Focussport.com is a great place to start. Suspension is a great idea, as are performance tires. I also suggest the following:

1.) Remove from brain all thoughts of body kits, heavy 18" wheels, unnecessary speakers.

2.) Purchase FocusSport Stage 2 turbo kit, 2.5"+ exhaust, clutch

3.) Enjoy!

06 and SVT suspension do not mix but the new updated ford racing suspension for the 06 07 will give the same drop as the SVT kit. Focus sport has CAI intake options and IMHO the best sounding exhaust next to a borla. If you want a short ram pick up a Steeda SRI thats what i have and really enjoy it.

Did some looking around and it looks like the Eibach Pro kit with the ford racing dampers could be the way to go for the lowering. Got some good reviews in some other threads. As far as the heavy 18" rims, Ford racing has a nice set of Rally rims that aren't too costly.
