Need ideas exterior 2009 Ford Focus SEL

Hello! Happy Easter!


I just bought my wife a 2009 Ford Focus SEL. 15,000 Miles. It was the best deal on the lot at only $11,000. Unfortunately it's FUGLY and we had no choice she needed a car to get to school and back.

Sorry I know nothing about cars! But here's my question...

I was wondering if there are any simple ways to improve the exterior. Kind of like the only difference between a Corolla CE and a Corolla S are the very simple little stick on bumper skirts & they make the car look so much better. I'm not talking about the "body kit" huge bumpers that go all the way down to the ground those things are extremely tacky.

ANYWAY, This is OUR car





THIS Is an Ugly Corolla




This is Much better looking Corolla with simple skirts around it..




This is what I'd like to avoid. Sorry but this is stupid looking..




Any information would be greatly appreciated :D

Happy Easter!

What about a 3D Carbon Kit.
Avoiding what you dont want here are some simple skirts fro the front rear and sides. I want to get the rear one and put it on my focus. Also try getting a coupe bumper cover instead of the square one.

3D Carbon:

This is the most tastefully done kit IMO. http://andysautosport.com/ford/2008_...its/3d_carbon/
This site also has other parts for our car that are reasonably priced. Another good website is http://www.fswerks.com

Oh nice, that may be just what I was looking for!

I don't have a coupe but it says 08-11 Four door models, hope that includes the SEL. I reckon Window Tint and some sportier 17" wheels would make all the difference also!

Thanks much champjfocus!

SEL is the top of the line 'lux' Focus. Could add SES items to it, but keep the lux essance I think.

Slammed, do you like all pieces. Front, side, etc.

I only like the rear skirt. I was going to put the coupe/ses bumper cover on front and get the skirt for the rear and thats it.

I went to ford about cover and they said they couldnt do it..........
