how much does it cost...?

im pretty new to all this stuff.. and my car doesnt have any modifications yet. but i am looking to get it lowered.

here is a video that has a lot of nice focuses and stuff. im looking to do something similar to the car at 0:10.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVt1ioUb8SQ&NR=1
do you know how low that is? and how much it might cost to get it done?

also while i am talking about costs.. how much does it cost for window tinting on a zx3? and what about a full paint job for the zx3?

thanks for any help.. i really appreciate it.

For tint and paint you are REALLY going to have to call local places and get your prices. There is no way we can give you an exact idea. Because type of paint, materials prep all that differ man..

Tint varies with shops i was quoted 135 for mine with a lifetime warranty.

it looks to be about as low as the svt, Its hard to say, but the svt kit can run 300 or so new, plus install if you cant do it urself, so prolly about 500 give or take

if you need help ou may get a good response in the focus nation area, there are about 5 of us within 1 hour driving range of appleton, im there all summer another member lives there and 3 more are within driving range, we do installs and all that quite often, also i know a body shop that has painted my car MANY times, its not cheap but its quality.... post up in there or pm me for more details...

the rims also determine the height.
on the video it looks like 215/40or35/18s so those are 18 inch rims with about a 1.6 inch drop. you can get a 1.5 to about 1.6 inch drop with a Eibach Pro Kit. Eibach Pro Kit springs run aobut $200 and dampers is about $300. so about $500 altogether.
i have a Eibach pro kit and mine droped about 1.6.
here is my car with the Eibach Pro Kit w/ 205/45/17 ,just to give you an idea:
