Whats next?

Ok so below is my pretty stock 2003 SE. I have an appointment Saturday to get my windows tinted all around (20 or 30%, still deciding), I have clear corners on the way in the mail, and will be debadging in a week or two, weather permitting. What do you suggest next?????

I was thinking either sportline springs or trubendz exhaust w/ borla muffler. Any other ideas or comments welcome. Thanks!!! (no money for wheels at the moment )

I would suggest changing the shocks if you decide to change the springs.

Do you have an intake ?
If not, may want to look in to getting one.

i'd go with an intake first. that was my first (other then 35% tint and clear corners) I'm quite happy with how it gave me a better sound

Intake would be nice, a catback exhaust system would be a good investment also. It would all really depend upon what you would like and how much you have to spend. I'm told the aftermarket is very wide and reasonable for the Zetec focus. Best of luck.

back where i started from. i was talking with people on here over the past few days about possible intakes. I was actually curious if there was like a "must have" 1st performance mod. I didnt think an intake would be it, but I guess I was wrong by your comments.

I dont know why, but the wheel gap is killing me!
