Total noob. List of mods I wanna do

So I just bought a 2015 Focus SE 2 months ago. I've already decided a million things I wanna do with it, but first things first. I think I'm gonna do 30 or 35% window tint. Other than that, I have no idea where to go to get what I want. I plan to get a full exhaust, different shift knob, fog lights, bluetooth speaker upgrade (person I'm in a call with says it sounds terrible), possibly HIDs, coilovers, and wheels. I haven't decided on wheels yet and I plan to drop the car only an inch or 2 (damn speed bumps at work that I can't avoid).
So after tint, I think I'll install fog lights. But I have no idea what I would need to do.
Not sure if there's much I can do about my bluetooth speaker, but that's why I'm here to ask you wonderful folks!
So um, HALP.

Honestly, the best thing is good tires, and suspension upgrades. This car shines in the twisties. Tires, then suspension upgrades (lowering springs, sway bar, strut bar), a rear motor mount, intake, exhaust, and then look at a tune. All in that order

Forget the rice, up above is nice! (But if you do like the rice, there's like 12 different headlights for the focus, 3 or 4 taillights (or more) you will want ones designed for HID, not halogen, dont put HID in stock headlights...a steeda rear sway bar would be a nice upgrade until you drop it (but get aftermarket shocks/struts)..there's a FOCUS DIY sticky that has a lighting thread there on how to swap out all the bulbs with leds or whatnot...if doing fog lights, you'll want them to match your hid color.

Trust me, I am certain far from a ricer haha. I'm just a little worried about doing any performance mods or anything to crazy because I don't wanna void my warranty. The morons at the dealership gave me a lot of trouble when I bought my car so they're kind of at my mercy, but still.
No ideas on the Bluetooth thing though?

This. I second everything you said. Intake gives a mean sound even without exhaust.

I am in the same situation as you. I just bought a 2015 Focus SE and want to do some interior and exterior mods but I have no idea where to get those mods! All the websites I've found seem to only have stuff for the 2014 Focus.

Does anyone know what mods can be installed in the 2015 that also fit in the 2014 and which ones you can't? Any good websites?
Sorry about my ignorance!

Yes...4500 or 5000K...nice bright white, don't do the blue tinge like 60% of the people on the road that convert to hid (the other 40% are pink, purple, or severe blue)

And don't put in stock housings, light is scattered and weak... need projectors designed for hid.

There really isn't anything for the '15s just yet. There's a few performance things like intake and exhaust that I know of.
