Car Design

Hey all, I'm kinda new to all this. Do not currently own a focus, but I'm planning on picking one up in the very near future. Just looking for some general information. It looks like I'll be picking up a 2000 SE 4door sedan (my grandfather's so it's in great shape). Just looking for suggestions for general mods that are easy to perform and add to the look of the car. I was thinking wheels/tires, exhaust, lens covers, windown tint, maybe debadging, nice set of seat covers (don't want to replace them yet), painting the interior accents, new pedal covers, steering wheel covers and that's probably it for now. Any other suggestions for me? I'm also thinking of a few engine mods as well to boost horsepower. Any suggestions for some easy mods to boost jsut a few hp? Oh, and one last thing, does anyone know of a computer program that enables you to import a picture of your car so that you can see what different wheels look like, and different colour options (interior and exteriior)? Any info would be greatly appreciated guys and gals.

PS. I love this site!!

well u are onto a good start with the looks aspect. Those will all set off your focus..the next thing after that would be a body kit. For a few horsepower, go with a intake and an exhuast and chip, that will put a decent gain on and are simple bolt ons. For the picture program u speak i dont know if one exists. But for wheels, u can go to they show a picture of your car and u can see what different wheels look like on it.

good luck with the foci, get a CAI and exhaust that will give you a little more power and then buy a chip. . .
My threads are better than yours.
