Talking My new car! Ideas needed please

Hi all

I'm very new to this, I've just got myself my first car - a 2002 Silver Ford Focus. I love her already

I need a few things and wanted some advice....
Mats - I need a full set of car mats. Ideally I'd love some that look a bit nicer than the standard just black mats. I like these but they don't make them for my model: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-FORD-FOCUS...item4153e8ed3a

Wing Mirrors - I'd like sportier ones than the standard ones I have. I would like them colour coded, is that possible? What options do I have as I can't see many! Also, how do I know if my wing mirrors are heated? I need to buy some new glass as the current glass makes the cars look too far away. I'm not sure if I should get heated or not.

Any other modifications you'd recommend? Nothing that would put the insurance up as it's already looking in the region of £1,300
Just some small things I can perhaps spruce it up a bit with?

I treated her to window wipers and an air freshener today - pushing the boat out

Thanks all, I'm very excited!!

For mirrors there are these Though im not really a fan of those, and yes any mirrors you get can be color matched. You could even do your stock mirror caps, it improves the look alot.

Also if your looking for heated, I suggest looking on here for some SVT Focus mirrors, you can paint the caps to match, they're heated, and are glossy unlike standard focus mirrors.

But other than that look around in the showroom, see what others are doing to their cars, maybe you'll get some ideas!
