Body Kit General Questions

I have been looking at different body kits for my car (04 Sedan twlight blue) and in my search I don't recall every seeing a Dark colored focus with a body kit. They are all on the Silver, red, yellow foci. Do the body kits look funny on darker foci? Also, is it, I guess, taboo to put a body kit on a focus if you aren't planning on doing any performance mods? I am more interested in the looks than I am with the performance (I will get in way too much trouble with Johnny Law if I had more HP than I do now, plus I live in CA so I have the damn C.A.R.B. issues with touching my intake/exaust areas).

I really like the hood and the front bumper from Cervinis, and I thought about trying to find the side skirts and rear bumper that would look good and fit a sedan (I know that the bumper would fit but I don't like it).

Thanks.

i don't think it looks bad on darker cars, but the issue is that people who put that kind of stuff on their car are people who like to go "look at me! look at me!" darker colors don't really have that kind of presence, with the exception of black maybe. i'd think it'd look good, though. can't wait to get my twilight blue zx5 back from the shop with all the SVT parts on it. that's about as close to a body kit as i'll ever get!

don't let johnny law be an excuse to not modding your car, btw. as a fellow san diegan, i can assure you that there are plenty of CARB-happy mods out there that will really open up you PZEV.

i feel for ya, bro.i just posted a similair thread earlier today.........i like the roush kit, but it is only for the hatch, as the cervinis one was, i thought........

as for color, you have my other favorite, mine is liquid grey metallic, i think that a good kit would look killer on dark foci.........i think that there are no pics out there b/c most of the kits are really rice, and rice drivers ofter have the flash colors................

Delta- Yeah I saw your post it kinda reminded me I wanted to post those questions. All those "ZX3 only" kits will fit the sedan with the exception of the side skirts. The bumpers and hood are all the same size and have the same mounting hardware (or so I was told).

WhiteBoy- I was wondering how many San Diegans were here. Johnny Law is only part of the excuse, the other i money. In a perfect world I would do that ATI V8 Cobra swap and then slap on the body kit and make it look really nice. I will have to wait till I get out of College before I can do that swap :P. But I figure, I won't use the performance stuff really at all, so I might as well make my stuff look sweet.

okay, i just got a response from roush. first i want to praise roush for a quick response.......many companies never respond, while roush responded in a few hours. the rear from a hatch kit will not fit a sedan, they are different sizes and do not account for the trunk. now i'm bummed.........but still need a good rear, or else i will have to go with stock, which isn't bad ........also, please give your imput on the roush piece

will someone help us poor little sedan owners?
