Well theres different categories you could put that money Into. What are you going for? Looks, performance, audio? Some coilovers Is probly what I would drop that cash Into and you would still have some left over.

^^ what he said, depends on what you wanna start off with.. As far for parts you selected, thats a good start.

The projectors, many people on here have them, you can ask few of them on here for any issues. I personally dont like them, cutoff line isnt as sharp as I like it and doesn't have much of a color flicker on them.

The Magnaflow exhaust is a good pick, its quiet when daily driven and pretty decent on WOT. BUTTT 3 " exhaust is WAYYYYYYYYY too big for our focus unless your turbo'd. That 3" diameter pipe will loose a lot of back pressure exhaust and cause your car to feel slower than it should..

Some company you should look at is fswerks.com or focus.c-f-m.com. I hope this helps

I myself started with performance before suspension and audio.

Only the coupe in 09 came with the black housing. 2010 only the SES came with it, coupe/sedan.
