Starter Mods for my Focus

So, I've decided that I'm going to keep the Focus! Now that I'm not traveling a lot for work, I was thinking of getting rid of it and getting something older and higher mileage so I wouldn't have to deal wit ha payment. The difference in higher gas and no payment would save me like $100 a month ... not really worth it.

So - where should I start to make the car "mine"?

I was thinking of doing a Steeda SRI. I really don't understand why they are more expensive than a FSWerks CAI ... It's smaller. i really don't like the CAIs as they're pretty close to the ground and it rains a lot here

-Or-

I could spend that money on a front stress bar and a rear sway bar.

I don't drive the car any harder than your average grandma (I usually average 36+mpg) ... so I won't usually utilize them.

I've already painted the grille black with plastidip, and I'm working on tracking down a set of headlights to bake and paint dark.

I just want to make the car "mine" ... so to speak.
