Love that blue car above, I can't wait!
So far I have ordered:
3D Carbon Kit
Eibach Pro Kit Springs
Better HID bulbs for my retrofit
And it's getting tinted on saturday!

|Kipp||are you gonna wait til spring to put the springs on with the wheels or just do it now? if you wait you'll have the extra clearance through winter, but might be easier to get bolts out now. that lower rear control arm bolt likes to sieze.|

Also I met this guy, name's Ryan_D on here, really cool dood, dig the car too.

Judging by the picture above with the blue interior, I don't like it and will leave it.
Anyways, my 3D kit will be here in a few days, getting windows tinted saturday, gonna order lowering springs within a few days. I will buy rims later in the winter, when it's closer to spring.
Can't wait to see this thing come to life!
I also want to undercoat my whole trunk area under the mat, and in the spring rip my interior apart and undercoat it on the inside for some sound proofing.

|PSUrivie||OP, it's not that big of a job to paint the interior. As you can see alot of guys have done it with great results. It's a fairly cheap mod that really change the inside of your ride.|

I have some rims that are very close to the ones you are looking at, they are sparcco as well but slightly different spoke pattern.
I opted to black out as much as possible in my car, painted the silver bits inside, swapped interior tan with a black interior, blacked out tail lights, black, grille, etc.
Also color matched the "Focus" on the door panels and dash.
Love this mod
Got a full list of my mods in my profile if you want to check it out, or if you want pics of something specific just ask.
I plan on getting coilovers this weekend and won't need my lowering springs anymore. Just an FYI

|indy_11||don't black your car out is all i have to say. other than that you're on the right path.|

do you use sat radio? if you don't use either then how bout shaving the antenna?
As far as the int panels go, it's enought to notice, but not overwelming. I have the center dash and console in mine (close match) and looks awesome!
brighter than the vista blue

What else can I do guys?
I will get the 3D carbon kit in a few days.
Buying the paint for it thursday. (body kit, mirror caps and grill)
Getting the windows tinted Saturday.
Still deciding on lowering springs.
Gonna grab a stubby antenna. (I don't use radio)
Also tempted to pull the silver dash panels off and paint them body color. That might be too overwhelming though.

EDIT: Just picked up a new 3d carbon kit for $442 shipped!
Thanks for the idea of painting the diffuser. Why is this one different? Coupe version? Or is that painted too? Hard to tell...
The first mod is going to be springs, in the next few days and I don't know what to get. I don't want to completely kill my stock suspension... But I want to rid most of the wheel gap.
This would be perfect (stole from another thread)
