Zolemite's 2012 Focus S 5M/T

Hey all, Just wanted to start a thread on my car. Hopefully I can keep this without some BS happening. I'm going to do some simple yet tasteful mods. So far I've changed out all the exterior lights to Vled'sn w/ resistors, DDM Tuning 55w 6k highs & lows, Blox neo chrome shift knob, 18x8 +40 Niche NR6 w/ Kumho 235/45/18 tires, Rays lug nuts, drop in cup holder inserts. I bought G2 black caliper paint for my rear drums (painting tonight). Still undecided about front caliper color.

I just clay barred the car then used my porter cable DA and a black pad and polished the car. Then put Collinite synthetic wax. then 2 coats of Pinnacle Liquid Sovereign pure carnuba.

Here are some pics :) This might be a slow build, but I'll update with pics when I make any changes.

Sorry my interior is dirty.
Future mods are:
Paint front calipers
Paint headlights black or silver
FSwerks stealth exhaust
Eibach sportline springs
Steeda rear sway bar
20% tint on rear and 35% on all sides
Intake
Gloss black roof
Paint door handles (maybe)
Plasti-dip whiskers

Do all S models have the 12v socket in that location? My SE has it under the arm rest, prefer the above one much more

Meh. They're just lugs. I like his wheels, 18s really look good on the third gens.
