what should i do on my 2010 focus ses?
 
i just purchased a 2010 ford focus ses 4 dr. Its my first car ever and i want it to look cooler and make it faster but as a college student i dont have a lot of money to be putting in for any expensive mods. i just recently tinted the windows as well. Any other things that i could do to make it look more sporty and cooler. and also performance mods that would increase the speed for not that much money? any help would be great thank you!
im new to this car expirience sorry if i sound like an idiot..[???:)] thanks for any help again [:)]

Post up a few pics so we can give you some better pointers as to design changes. But for performance , you could make a cheap cold air intake for about 40-50 bucks , or buy one from steeda or fswerks , also a catback exhaust would give you minor gains as well . It will be very far from a racecar but those mods will wake it up and i do believe your " butt " dyno will approve!

Well imo it already looks pretty crisp , maybe tint the tails and 3rd brake , and remove that last badge on the rear and it would look extra sweet . A lowering would really set it off but thats $$$ so unsure if its an option . Also those eaps look great on there , i wouldnt change those , except maybe plast-dip them black

For now you could remove the resonator on the airbox. It's free and provides a more aggressive sound from the intake.

Unfortunately there's not a ton of parts available for our cars so stuff can be expensive. The most common mods are -

Intake (FSWerks, Steeda, K&N, C-F-M)
Header (F2, OBX, FSWerks)
Exhaust (FSWerks, Magnaflow, Trubendz, MBRP)

There are 2 prominent tuners around here, Tom (Focus Power) or Randy FSWerks) to get everything running in harmony.

You could get the front lip, or the whole body kit, from 3d Carbon. It's more aggressive without being tacky like some body kits.

About 5-6 bucks a can, theres whats called " nite-shade" and theres rustoleum lense tint , both are spray on and easy to work with . Or you can order either precut tinted vinyl overlays or uncut rolls and cut.it to fit . I just like the spray because to me it is easier to work with. Autozone and oriellys carry the sprays . The vinyl can be found online
