what should i do on my 2010 focus ses?

i just purchased a 2010 ford focus ses 4 dr. Its my first car ever and i want it to look cooler and make it faster but as a college student i dont have a lot of money to be putting in for any expensive mods. i just recently tinted the windows as well. Any other things that i could do to make it look more sporty and cooler. and also performance mods that would increase the speed for not that much money? any help would be great thank you!
im new to this car expirience sorry if i sound like an idiot.. thanks for any help again

Post up a few pics so we can give you some better pointers as to design changes. But for performance , you could make a cheap cold air intake for about 40-50 bucks , or buy one from steeda or fswerks , also a catback exhaust would give you minor gains as well . It will be very far from a racecar but those mods will wake it up and i do believe your " butt " dyno will approve!

For now you could remove the resonator on the airbox. It's free and provides a more aggressive sound from the intake.

Unfortunately there's not a ton of parts available for our cars so stuff can be expensive. The most common mods are -

Intake (FSWerks, Steeda, K&N, C-F-M)
Header (F2, OBX, FSWerks)
Exhaust (FSWerks, Magnaflow, Trubendz, MBRP)

There are 2 prominent tuners around here, Tom (Focus Power) or Randy FSWerks) to get everything running in harmony.

You could get the front lip, or the whole body kit, from 3d Carbon. It's more aggressive without being tacky like some body kits.

Don't worry about it man, we all were at one point.

Take out the airbox.



The silencer is held in by a single screw.



Pull that sucker off.



Put the airbox back in.

Well imo it already looks pretty crisp , maybe tint the tails and 3rd brake , and remove that last badge on the rear and it would look extra sweet . A lowering would really set it off but thats $$$ so unsure if its an option . Also those eaps look great on there , i wouldnt change those , except maybe plast-dip them black
