finally got my zx3

YES! i finally got my zx3 today. the guy got the title yesterday and we picked it up today i absolutely love my silver zx3, i think i like it even more than the zts i killed okay so heres what i'm thinking for a small list of mods. i don't really want to do performance mods cuz my friend just destroyed her engine because of mods, it probably was the supercharger, but i do'nt want to take any risks. so for mods i'm thinking:

angle eyes
tail lights
shorty antenna
short throw
new pedals

anyone out there have some good cheap exterior/interior mods that i can do to my focus? thanks.

An intake won't hurt.
$20-30 for a 3 inch cone filter that can be slaped on the end of the upper intake tube.
Someone here has done it.

But an intake and TB wouldn't hurt. It's not like your gonna be running 13's with just that.

What about just getting a K & N filter?

Congrats on the new car. If you are a ricer, like me, I would suggest a dash kit and maybe some clear corners.

BTW: What are angle eyes? My BF told me last night that a car had them, but by the time I looked, they had already passed.

Congrats on the new car.

If the heat in on with your parents it might be best you wait on some performance mods till things die down. Just a thought.

thanks everyone. my zx3 is mtx just like my zts, i do'nt ever want to buy a car thats atx, just too boring and lazy. well seeing how i'm not going to be home in a year an a half to drive my car around i've decided not to sink too much money into it. i figure the car i get once i get out of college i can mod, that way i'll have more money to do it right. i had a tb and an intake but my dad wouldn't let me put it on. so does anyone have pics of their silver zx3 with clear coners? cuz i'm thinking about doing that cuz that seems fairly easy and cheap. thanks.

Really take a look at old posts in regards to the shorty antenna. I was gonna get one, but I hear the reception is not very good depending on where you are. I just decided against it... no biggie.

Clear or smoked corners is a must for your silver baby! (I have smoked on mine)

About the dash kit, if the dash is like mine (you have a 2001 also) I like mine better than the white backing I have seen in others/newer. But then again, I have black with black and gray interior so a white backing would look pretty awful. Blegh!

Oh, and stock taillights are the way to go in my opinion. I have yet to see tails that look better than the stock. All of em are ricer tails and just look cheesy.

Debadging is a simple mod.. takes about 30 minutes-1 hour.

That's my opinion, buddy. Good luck with your decisions and enjoy your new zx3!!!!

Angel eyes, also known as halos, are headlights that have plastic rings around the round headlight reflector. The plastic ring is lit up by an LED that turns on with your parking lights. At night it gives it a really cool looks, like the car is looking at you...
