Body Kit help

Hello guys, im knew to the Focus Fanatics site and this is my first post. I recently received my mothers 2010 4DR focus sedan. Now im planning to upgrade it with performance, looks etc. But i think first i want to add a body kit. Now i dont know much about the installation of body kits, i just know some are harder than others. If you guys know of an easy and decently priced body kits for this car then please post :) I have this one in mind though, let me know what you think. Thank You

Okay, cause i heard i should stay away from fiberglass body kits, because they break easily.

We had a member join recently that actually has the front bumper to this kit. I do have to say, my opinion is that the rear of this kit isn't the best, and in that color... Color me no. But like I said, my opinion. Hopefully he will chime in on this. And I would sugest smaller performance mods first. Then move up to visual. You gotta have some "oomph" to back up that smack talk that the car dishes out with that kit. :D

Yeah, they can, it all depends on how clumsy you are parking lol. I've got a bit of curb rash from the previous owner where you can tell they ran over a parking stall. As long as its a quality kit from a good manufacturer (which duraflex is), you shouldn't have to worry about it breaking.

Also, welcome to Focus Fanatics!

that all depends on how the kit is prepped. usually a fiberglass kit will need to be fitted and mounting holes drilled and everything lined up. very time consuming and can end up misaligned easily. duraflex generally fits better and should be set up ready to go. always a good idea to fit everything on the car before you paint it just in case it needs to be altered at all.

also a good idea to have someone help you install it that has done them before or is good with body work.
