I consider the retrofit a performance mod. Your lighting is waaay better and you can drive faster at night!

I've done 2 retrofits so far on the focus and it's actually pretty fun. Easily done within a day. I'd suggest doing the, sure you lose the halo rings and leds. But you could always ad them to your retrofit (I decided not to because it's one more thing that can break).

Your rear bar is a 20mm. A great upgrade would be Eibachs 25mm or Steedas 28.6mm.

Besides, the full retrofit kit will only cost you about $280 an you'll have plenty left for something else.

felixthecat Add a set of cams= Massive has crower cams for the '08+ cars. A poly dogbone for sure. CFM's tubular control arms, & 4-point lower stress brace. How 'bout a Steeda rear bar & a 22mm front bar. Want more lower= 2''/2.2'' get Massive's Omni kit & Eibach's sportline system for a ''00-''05 cars. It'd be great if you could get a torsen for your atx. How 'bout a 23 head? Or how 'bout a 23 motor? What 'bout suremotor sports or JBR= James Barone racing motor/trans mounts? Go for performance.

09vistabluecoupe With all you have now I would go with a rear disc conversion. And correct me if I'm wrong but only coupes came with the rear sway bar in '09 afaik, you could get one of those as well. You'd even have money left for the dogbone after those two things too.
