soundFocus I have 30% Tint on my car, only on the rear though. I agree it looks good; keeps the heat and light down in the interior, looks nice, and doesn't attract attention. Good call keeping a second set of wheels for winter; I hate to think what 10 years of PA winters are going to do to my 17s but hopefully I won't need to put up with it much longer.

Introduction past, and a little update.

Finally saturday was a nice spring day, but rainy so I thought i should pull the car into the garage and get my roof rack mounted, i should have watched the weather, because when i was done, it was snowing. oh well. now i just need to cut down the fairing to fit the car and add the appropriete biking, hiking and hunting stickers.

onward to the picture.

summer should be window tint, and this car should be about done.

cyfocus01 Purple steelies look good. Stock rims look sweet IMO, I'd love them on my zts. Hate to use the, stereotype, but black car thought you'd go with yellow rims. LOL. But, really, looks good and props to a black car. Had one and will not seek another, they look awesome for 5 minuets, them dirty again. Ugh, couldn't deal with it.

Miller88 Looks good!

I don't quite understand the purple wheels, though.

Car looks fresh. Good choice. 30% tint will look great on it. That's the level of tint I am going to do on mine as well.

I think its time for an introduction...

I am now the proud owner of a 2011 SES Sedan. And i joined this site to be able to research repairs or known issues that will come up with the car. I purchased it out of haste one day since my wife was 2 weeks from the delivery date of our daughter and here escape had just spent the previous week in the shop. I had a really nice ford ranger but could not put a child seat in the truck so it had to go. This was the first and only focus that i test drove, but i fell in love with it right away. after talking with the dealer i was able to get a really good deal for my truck and traded cars. a little fore warning for future fathers, not the best thing to do when your wife is giantly pregnant and pissy.

either way, here is the car. all washed and waxed before the winter.

and since ford liked to use the 17" rims, i needed to get a decent set of snow tires. so with a little help from a 6 pack and a week of prepping and paint, here is the winter mode.

disregard the x on the back tire. it was marked so that i would know which rim was bent and needed to be on the rear of the car.

future work to do is:
Yakima roof rack. skybox and bike racks.
30% window tint all around. not legal in iowa but i can get a tint prescription.
and since i love the way the purple turned out. i am probably going to plastidip my 17" stockers purple. why?, because i can
