Exterior/Interior Mods for 2010 Ford Focus SES

So, I have been reading around this forum and the interwebs about what I can do to the Focus. My current ideas are:

TFBdesigns.com:

http://shop.tfbdesigns.com/2008-2011...n-FOCSTP10.htm

2008-2011 Ford Focus Side Stripes- 4 Door Sedan
Lettering: Focus
Color: Dark Gray

http://shop.tfbdesigns.com/Build-Num...-SVT-BUILD.htm

Build Number Decal- Ford Mustang Saleen Roush Focus SVT
Lettering: My SES Registry Number (not yet given)
Color: Dark Gray


http://shop.tfbdesigns.com/Build-Num...-SVT-BUILD.htm

2008-2011 Ford Focus Emblem Decals (x3)- LOGO OF YOUR CHOICE
Background Color: Dark Gray
Logo color: Blue
Logo: OEM (which I'm hoping is the signature Ford look)

That's all I really have, but I want others opinions on it, I have done nothing to this car (too busy throwing money at my mustang). I will not be lowering my car because I bottom out with it stock height with these shitty Indiana roads. But any other things on the exterior and interior, and how to do things. This is my "first car" ( I had a Prius for exactly two weeks, it is not a car, it is a lunchboxhttp://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/images/smilies/vommit.gif and my Dad loves it), and I really don't have much experience so nothing insane, but give me your greatest suggestions!

I also wonder if anyone has used wider wheels and if someone has a picture of this. I' m thinking it will be more rally look. Like offset? I don't know how else to say this. Edit: http://www.fswerks.com/spacers.htm

Any other ideas, especially interior, since I haven't touched it at all, are super welcome.

Do they make them plug and play? Also, do they make snap on covers that tiny the taillights? We had a Chevy Silverado that had black Snap on covers over the taillights.

Also, is there an easy way to add automatic headlights? Not particularly ones that use a sensor and turn on and off in dark, because I drive with the lights on all the time, but just a kit or something that cuts power to the lights when I shut off the car? Does that make sense?

Also thinking about painting the gas cap the dark gray, but is there a way to match it to the vinyl color from TFBDesigns? Or maybe just wrap it in some vinyl from them? Or plastidip as I'd prefer a removable way.

ANNNND, my interior is quite scratched and just dingy and ugly and I love the carbon fiber interior look, can I buy new parts and just replace the top sliver part with the carbon fiber parts, or is it just easier to wrap it myself? Either way, product recommendations?

AHHHHHHHHH! http://www.carid.com/2010-ford-focus...em-345225.html i LOOOOOOOVE this. Love Love Love Love.

Yes and no on the plug and play.
Anything that flashes needs a load resistor to avoid burning the LED and causing hyper flash. But other than that they are mostly plug and play.

I have some others too if you want them.

I drive with my lights on all the time too. I am not sure about the automatic ones like the EDGE or Flex. I have the same question. I am sure someone else will chime in. There are a lot of good people on here. Although yesterday I found out I have DRL's....I never realized it until I was in my garage and when I took the car out of park the lights came on 50% less bright.

Plastidip would probably work with that according to many on here. But I suggest leaving it body color in my opinion.

Maybe some of these for the interior:

I have learned all about this past couple days by many on here. I am in the same boat with you.
