Looking good so far...Like everyone else I'm saying drop for the next mod. But while you wait, I would clean up the back end with a de-badge

Next Step

Some where in the blur of ordering parts the order to FSWERKS got screwed up and my H&R 2"racing spring order did not go through. That error was however corrected and the springs will be here this week and hopefully installed next weekend and once a couple of items with the trunk and wing are done it will be de-badged and the wing painted.

The only thing I don't like is the front bumper. with a drop and maybe just a 3d carbon lip on stock bumper this thing would look great.

I went with the combo I did because I did not want my car to look exactly like someone else's besides my stock front bumper was trashed by a flying tree branch while trying to get home in a severe storm I got caught in

i think the placement of the fogs are throwing me off. maybe if you moved them to the 2 outside vents they would look a little better? or maybe remove the tint? i know you're going for a theme here but thats just me. with a drop im sure it'll look better. but overall good job, its good to be different. i really like the rear

and are you just getting the springs? because H&R doesn't make race springs for our focus unless your getting the omni kit and some other strut combo. the race springs that fswerks offers only fits the 00-05 focus. if you're just getting the sport springs you could just get those off of tire rack for much cheaper. and depending on where you live there standard shipping = next day. i usually order things from tire rack before 11am to make that happen

I agree. Fogs on the outside vents without the tint I think would look good.

^this, I like the originality of the front bumper with the 3d side skirts and rear. A drop is going to make it a lot better and are you putting H&R springs on stock dampers??
