Tell me what you think of this Focus's exterior. Dial up be careful

Hey guys. I work for a dealership and we are trying to dress our Focus's up a bit. We are heavy into customizing cars and came up with this little package. Tell me what you think and any ideas you have to make the next one look better.

This Focus GFX has candy apple two tone and DUB edition wheels on it.

not a huge fan of the paint job to be honest, i think a dark blue would have looked alot better in my opinion. but other than that i like it give it a drop and it would look awesome

i like that shade of red, and how u painted the spoiler
so you modify cars then sell them? pretty neat
as far as ideas, i think the best thing would be to go through the gallery to get ideas
i think if you stick to rims and subtle exterior mods you'll be golden

The red on the spoiler looks pretty slick, but not on the rest of the car. The rims leave something to be desired, looks like it is going off roading.

Flat black wheels on gloss black cars doesn't do it for me at all, the rim design does not go with that car at all, and the rims just look cheap. It definitely needs a drop, too. The paint job does look good, but those wheels just kill the look.

if you:
1.) drop it 1.5" or 2" inches
2.) give the wheels a chrome lip (possibly red)
3.) paint the roof and trunk back to the black you'll be good to sell it

IMO anyway...

here are some ideas... i got rushed away from my comp but here is a quick photoshop of what i think would sell to someone looking for a car that's in that "tuner scene" per say, idk

i'm with jboylan on the wheels for sure!!!

chrome lip


red lip (my favorite out of the two)

How much does it cost the dealership to do these modifications? How much more do they charge the customer?

Only curious.

I'm with the others on this car, though. Wheels-fail, the rest looks good.
