New guy, new car

hey, i just got a new 08 black ses coupe. its going to be my daily driver so I'm not going to mod it much. I ride a 06 cbr 600 rr for fun in the warm weather. anyways I need your help.

-08 suspension is like the 06-07 correct? So i could buy the H&R Sport Cup Kit for it?
-any after market grilles? I hate that oem one
-any eyelines for it?
-front lip?
- im going to get rims that are 17 x 7.5 +40 4h x 100 ... is that the correct lug pattern?
-what intake companys are there for the focus (for the 08)

thats all that im going to do to it. its just a daily driver.
thanks for the help

I don't think the aftermarket has really gone after the new Focus much yet...but keep an eye out! And welcome to the club!!!

it took a while (like years, we're just now getting halo headlights) for the aftermarket to come about for the 05+. i don't imagine it'll be that slow for the 08+, but still it'll take some time.

for the grille...paint it. black will look great on the black car. especially if you tint the windows dark. ooooh yeah.

eyelids i assume is what you meant by eyelines? likely nothing yet, and i'm not really sure how you'd do a set for those lights...but you could always try to fab something up if you've got the material and a little know-how (don't ask how, cause i don't have that know-how, lol)

front lip...keep your eyes open. i'd suspect focussport may be the first to release a lip kit, they did one up for sema on their focus and it was a hit. steeda likely will get one out quickly as well if i had to guess.

as for rims...it's 4*108. they're the same as the previous model foci.

and intake...hmm...got the same 2.0 duratec so i believe you can use anything 05+...but someone else should confirm that before you go by my word.

and suspension...i'm not sure exactly. i think there's some parts that are different? idk...
