Been a Focus owner for a year now (56 eh?)

As of April 17th I have been a Focus owner for a full year now! I purchased my stock 2001 ZX3 5-speed just before college graduation last year; it was love at first sight when I saw her on the used car lot down in PA. So, for starters, here are some pictures of her the week after I brought her home.





And now, after a year of playing around with modifications, this is what my baby has become.






Exterior:
Tinted TYC Alteeza taillights
ST170 upper grille
Shorty antenna
Gloss black antenna base
SVT window trim and rear window triangles
Yellow brake calipers and drums
Foglight mod
Debadged
Custom badge overlays
Inpro 'black' ST170 headlights
Sylvania Silverstar bulbs
Hoen Xenonmatch fog light bulbs
Custom Euro-plate (Italia)
17" SVT Euro rims

Interior:
MOMO Superturismo pedals
MOMO Race Carbon shift knob
Insignia CD/MP3/WMA player
Silver HVAC controls
SVT leather seats w/ red insert
SVT gauge cluster
Custom Speedhut gauge overlay
European floor mats
Custom yellow RS steering wheel
ST170 center console
Custom 2 pod gauge bezel

Underhood:
NGK Double Platinum spark plugs
Focus Sport Performance wires
K&N air filter
European radiator cover (modified)
SVT/ST170 snorkel and air-box (with resonator removed)
Steeda billet fuel rail
Year 2000 intake header

And of course, there is still much more planned for the 2nd year of ownership
