Question Summer Project: What should I do?

Well this summer I plan on doing some modding to the focus because I'll finally be able to work full-time and have some extra cash. Question is I'm not sure what I want to do yet. Heres my options. I want to either get some tint, an intake, those ebay halo's that everyones getting, or the Eibach Pro-kit. Now if I were to choose between the intake, halo's, or tint I would choose two of them. But if I were to get the suspension, I would just get that. Anyways, vote on what you think would be your first choices. Or if there is something else that I didnt think of then just post what it is. Performance isn't really a huge factor seeing as I have an auto, so I'm leaning more towards what parts would help make my car look better. Pics of the car is in my gallery.

Edit: Damn it, I screwed up the poll! So where it says Intake & Tint, think of it as Intake & Halo's. Mods if you can change it, that would be awesome!

get the halos and tint. tint really makes a car look nice not to mention keeps it cooler in the summer. Also get good halos not cheap e-bay ones PLEASE!! and if you do get e-bay ones make sure their good and not some cheapo ones.

^^ yah you could lower it also looks nice, but I'd reather get the tint and good halos first. I think you could even afford the suspension and tint considering the tint is 160 or at least it should be. that would be the best 2 things suspension and tint. but if you are just doin suspension get the halos and tint

Yeah I know to beware of the cheap e-bay ones. The ones I'm talkin about are the ones like ZX34me's but with the black backing rather than chrome.

Because you said you're more interested in appearance than go, I'd go with the halos and tint. Both would look very sharp on your car.

i still feel that on a focus an intake is necessary
it just does so much for so little money......
so i would really vote intake (one off Ebay would be fine) and pro-kit or sportlines cause i love my set of sportlines...

you have to either get the intake or suspension. Then I'd suggest tint.

i'd say the eibach kit, since lowering a car looks really sweat, and then maybe some tint.
