hope im in the right spot!

Hi there FF members,Im Patrick.I have a 2008 Focus SES coupe(silver) with an automatic trans.I bought the car under a year ago and have to say I think its a great little car!Mid 30's MPG and I drive alot of city/highway combined.Im thinking bout modding it somewhat to improve on the looks mainly.Id like to gets rims and a little wider tire combo and maybe switch out the badges with something a little more unusual.Ill explain....I also own a Mustang Bullitt(I am a true Ford guy)that is an international show winner and what id like to do is have "Silver Bullitt" badges made up as a homage to my 1st love,(my Mustang Bullitt).I thought about a possible 'GT 350" type stripe along the bottom of the Focus but instead of gt350,id have silver bullitt or baby bullitt..heheh..I dunno.I know I may piss some people off(like the guys who put
Shelby decals on a regular Mustang)but Im not trying be something im not.Just want something to tie the two together is all.Your thoughts are appreciated,and any ideas are welcome as well!

I checked out your autologa few minutes ago.That is a beautiful Stang!Its got a really nice stance to it as well.Nice work.You also have good taste in the subtle mods youve done to your Focus,exactly how I want to approach my build.

Dang, now I want a Mustang too. lol

As for the badges, I no I wouldn't have a problem with that. Everyone who knows there stuff knows that a Bullitt is a Mustang and will not think a Focus with the badges is being pretentious. It's just to bad they weren't the same color. lol

thanks 02fordSVT,thats kinda what I was thinking too.The problem about the color is the Bullitt was the only car painted that particular color(same as Steve McQueens Mustang in the movie"Bullitt",hehe.No other car was ever painted Dark Highland Green so its a little tough to find.oh well,silver bullitt has a nice ring to it

I agree- - no one would slam you for "upbadging" when the badges are on a Focus.

I've also got a Challenger R/T Classic and belong to a couple Challenger forums. You want to hear some people go wild, a lot of those owners can't stand the idea of someone with an SE upbadging to R/T or SRT. I guess I'm not enough of a car guy to give a hoot one way or the other.

Anyhow, welcome. I probably have one of the highest mileage '08 Focus' out there at 90K miles.
