Thanks you two!

As far as performance parts, I don't know. One reason for opting to go with a new car was to have warranties, so I need to be mindful of those. I do want to do something, but I suppose I'll have to keep waiting for more to come out so that I can see what I can get away with.

Stepping up to 235s (from 215s) is a start I guess, but hopefully won't be the end.

That (warranty) is my concern too. There seems to be a consensus that if your mod is shown to have caused the problem it won't be covered. This I think would mean it's up to Ford service departments to decide.
I asked my dealer about Ford Racing parts and he thought they would even cause warranty problems.
Maybe it's safe to do an intake (K&N) but keep the ability to return to stock?
Sorry to jump in on your thread with this.

I have been toying with the idea of the K&N intake, at the very least the Focus will ultimately see the K&N drop-in filter at some point.

The Steeda rear sway bar is definitely a possibility though, I've heard great things about it.

I'm sure I could get away with some light modifications in the drivetrain/chassis departments but don't want to push my luck.

I think I'm just procrastinating and trying to find a reason for not doing performance mods.

In relation to our mirrors I honsetly couldn't tell you. The ones listed on Tousley and their part diagram seems identical to our AUS ones. I'll see if I can find a part number for mine. By the way I swapped my puddle bulbs for LED.

I'm still getting lots of surprised reactions to the fact that Volvo wheels fit.

Euro mirrors would be cool, if a (likely) pricey and time-consuming swap. I do see some more parts I wouldn't mind, too.

I'll also throw this here just 'cause I like my wheels so much. Today marks 8 months with the Focus.

Thanks! I can't stop looking at them myself.

Pictures:

This weekend I gave the Focus a mini exterior detail, including a fresh coat of wax. Following a small car club meet today, I took advantage of the nice weather to just drive for the sake of driving, and headed out into the back roads not far from my house. I kept an eye out for a potential spot for pictures and came across an empty lot which did the trick.

As always, photos are unedited straight from my camera (code for they're not 100% )
