Nope. It doesn't.

He deserved a dressing down. 5 pages of dressing down may be excessive but he has hopefully learned his lesson.

(I'm not convinced this is a real op anyway)

calebstubstad In all honesty, i'm sorry for bashing you. I tried to be nice, and I didn't do it to run up my post count. i've just learned from the guys on here where and when to buy things. the svt grille brand new is like 180 bucks plus shipping. i talked a guy on ebay down to 20 bucks shipped for one that's not perfect but all the damage can't be seen from the outside. it's a lesson learned, just like the old "brake light fluid" joke. i'm sure you learned your lesson, but make sure to ask before you buy, and do your research to yield a less expensive upgrade

I bought some stupid stuff when I was a teen. Didn't save much of anything for college. The more my dad nagged me about priorities and money, the less i listened. still managed to get my degree, get a real job, and now I spend money on other things some might think is stupid.

It's his money. Let him spend it.

on separate note... (directed to everyone, not any one person)

do we really need 5 pages of bashing? I am sure the kid has learned his lesson, lay off him. bunch of post whores trashing some kid to run their post count up.... many of you need to grow up just as much as he does.

apparently the old, "if you don't have something nice to say...." doesn't apply on this forum.

Phokus Holy balls. Ebay dude!
I just bought two headlights for my '13 for about $250-300 shipped

Focusblackzx5 I bought : Magnaflow 2,25'' flexback, SVT seats, steeda SRI, Altezza Euro tails, JSP spoiler, dash trims and full of other custom things I did and it cost me around 2000$. Even if youre young or not.. If you work for it and it,s one of your passions ..why not ?

I had the choice to buy a 9000$ focus and a 6100$ one, had 9K$ budget... I took the 6100$ one (my 05 SES) because I knew I was going to mod it ;)

The OP learned from his mistake but eh he can modd his ride even if he is young eheh :)

Pinarello Rider $1k to keep your ride going, well, that happens. Keeping a car running can get expensive. But my kids will be saving money for college.

mac.mogul I've bought tires, SVT rear brakes, roof spoiler, custom leather interior pieces, subwoofer/speakers, and FRPP suspension which alltogether comes out to about $1000.

If you spend $1000 on OE headlights and a grille you are straight up stupid. THEN Getting a $20 HID kit is just adding insult to injury.
