Honestly, if your planning to sell your car that soon, I wouldn't mod a thing on it; you'll only turn off potential buyers. However, as cjheck said, tint is pretty easy to remove. I used mineral spirits and another paint remover and the tint wiped right off without any problems.

Looks good! I like those wheels. I would say a bit of a drop would help, but that has to be in your budget. lol Check the buy selll trade section on here to find better deals on CAIs, exhaust, suspension, etc. lol Just dont do a body kit and you will be fine!

Thinking I may just try to plasti-dip it instead. Also, does it make it harder to sell a car when you have your lights all blacked out and such? I would think so as people will start wondering what you have done to the car if you have done things like that to it. Reason I ask this is because I am thinking I may buy a ZX3 at the end of summer so I dont want to effect how quickly my wagon will sell. Any thoughts?
I didnt see this until now. lol If you plan on selling it I wouldnt mod it at all, maybe some plastidip if you are really bored. That way it will peel right off.

Hey guys, unfortunately my sister hit a curb in my focus last night and bent 2 of my rims, as well as threw the alignment off and possibly bent something. Went to a place called fountain tire and the manager gave me a deal on some rims, but I told him that I would think about it. They are 17x7 FRD 85's for 89 dollars a piece. Anyone like them very much? I am most likely selling the car at the end of the summer because I want a zx3 so im not going to put a lot of money into this car. Anyway, would these be a good buy? What do you think of them? I live in Canada so shipping would be a shit load if I tried to buy some off of the forums. This is what 16's look like on a mazda protege 5

Thoughts appreciated!!!

It feels good knowing Im not the only teenager driving a focus wagon :)

Just paint the stock wheels on it, lower it like my wagon, and get a thule roof rack and people will stop hating on your wagon :) When my wagon was stock, people would accuse it of being my moms car, now that I lowered it everyones in love with my car!

Lol, car did not come with stock rims. I dont like how it handles without the aftermarket rims either, they really do do a shit load for handling. Do you like the rims though?

Rims are ok, but Id just go buy some stealies. I dont think rims affect handling, ride height affects handling.
