Couple ideas..

Not sure if this is the right section, but I was looking up some ideas for the Focus to begin modding her up, and came across these tail lights, and roof rack.

Let me know what you guys think, and also if you have pictures of roof racks please show them off. It's your chance to be a whore. lol

To be honest, I'm not a fan of the tail lights but there really isn't much of a choice out there. Unless you go with euro tails. I like the roof rack though. Just in case I missed you before, welcome to the site.

From what I could see none of those came with shocks or struts. if your gonna run coilovers your gonna need so serious performance shocks too. It'll be cheaper to buy it all as a kit. If you wanna stay with in a budget get you come lowering springs but your still gonna need some kind of performance shocks. I lowered mine 2" and I kept my stock shocks it was ok for a lil' while but it badly needs replaced now.

Some of the legit kits I've seen on the forums:

Ok, for some reason I've seen them not work on here before.

Just visit www.fswerks.com (you'll have to type it in)

Look up suspension. Everything they sell is worth the money.

I'm not really a fan of those taillight either but that's just a personal opinion and a lot better than the chrome ones I've seen.

As for the rack, I hope you already have a rack on the car because these look like they are only the cross bars, nothing more.

I used to own an older model like you, now I own a '12, but just word of advice... Don't go cheap on a roof rack. If you're serious about one and are going to be carrying expensive/quality cargo, do more research than eBay. I've got a four figure cycling bike and want to get an even more expensive one. There is no way in hell I would buy a 45$ "roof rack" off eBay. Good luck though!!
