My new 2011 SEL

Hey guys, didn't see a new member section so I guess I will post here.

My name is Peter, I'm 20.

Just decided to buy a 2011 Ford Focus SEL. Loaded with 15k miles.
This thing has leather, power windows/mirrors, heated seats and mirrors, leather, sync, aux, usb, cruise, sirius you name it it has it. Except for power seats lol

A much needed upgrade from my 2003 Pontiac grand am!

Here it is! What is the name of this color blue? I haven't got into that detail yet.





Still under factory warranty and getting a good deal on the ford certified extended warranty. The lady ended up trading it in for a hatch version.

She originally wanted it with cruise and everything but the dealer ordered the wrong model, and they had to install sirius and cruise at their expense.

Sticker price on it was $16,999.

Lucky for me I know the used car guy and got it for $14,500.




So you guys tell me what i need to know, best places to buy upgrades and all that stuff. I am an active forum-goer for every hobby I have so I plan to stick around.



Also I don't think I am fond of the chrome mirrors and door handles, would people on here be willing to buy them/trade whatnot?

And the only other concern I have for right now is the tail lights. I like the smoked lights that come on some of the other models, where can I find these for a decent price?
And I also need to find a wing like the one below in color (my mom got a wing for her fusion for like $120 shipped in color, so I expect to spend around that I guess)




I might want a sportier looking wing than the one above though, kinda boring.
Should I tint the tail lights or just the smoked ones on the above model? I am not paying $160 a piece on ebay lol

Congrats on it! That one pictured below is a lot like mine. The SES had black chrome inserts in the head and tail lamps, not smoked though. No idea what they go for used. The spoiler is also OEM.

I see new smoked ones or whatever they are (they look much darker and better in person) are $160 EACH on ebay, new factory ones.

The spoiler I almost want something that actually stands up a little.

The only complaint I have about the car is rear drum brakes but I can live with it :p

Why don't you just Niteshade them instead?

I had the chorme Grille, Headlights, and ugly tail lights.
