Update!! I've ordered and paid for some VMaxx coilovers. I got a great deal on them, and even though they are non adjustable in the dampening, ithey will be an upgrade over the stock suspension and it'll get me the low that I want.

Realistically, my car will never see a track as I do most of my performance driving in this...

Yet another update!!

Tires are ordered and paid for...went with the same tires I had on my xB. Federal SS595 225/40/18. They run a tad wider than most 225's and they are a great budget tire, far better than say Nankangs.

Also ordered some Muteki SR48 Neo-Chrome long open ended lug nuts to spice up the wheels a bit.

I should have the coilovers in the next day or so, tires by Friday at the earliest but Monday more than likely, and the lug nuts by the end of the week. Looking to have the car sitting right and on new wheels by Tues. of next week, then I'll have some proper photo's up...

Great to have you back homie. A lot of us have upgraded to a 12.

Wouldn't recommend the 3dCarbon lip kit, makes the car look awful chunky and tall..check the lip that Twenty has from Downforce (http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...272835&page=15)

Car is looking great.

WARNEEJ!! Wow, I haven't talked to you in a while! I do like the lip that Twenty has, but I don't think I can spend $450+ on the full C/F version that I want. Maybe if the price goes down a bit I guess. I'm waiting on the UPS man to get here today with my coilovers, but I won't have time to install them because I've gotten called back to work.

Awww snap...got these last night!





First impressions are that the build quality looks solid on these and while they don't have dampening adjustability, they should hold up just fine. I love the fact that they have the brake line and abs line mounts on the strut tube, something I know my KSports didn't have on my xB which resulted in me using zip ties to secure the brake lines.

I should be installing them in the next few days hopefully if work doesn't keep me busy.

OMGGG hahahaha this guy followed me to work today...

Anyways Eman we definitely need to get together cause our cars are really similar dispact the small fact mine is a 2011 and 2012 and they're complete different builds. BUT you're pretty much going the same road I went to when I started getting my mods into the car and what not and I've pretty much completed 80% of the things I need to do to it.

One thing that really stood out though is your suspension, you're investing a lot of money for Ksports c/o which are the ones I was going to get until I bought my H&R springs for $200 which I plan to use temporarily until I get c/o however I've had no problems with them so far and I put about 5000 miles into the car since I lowered it with a round trip to Miami and back.

Anyways I gotta let you hear my race exhaust in person since you're planning to get the same one I have so you can hear it before I get my header installed that way you'll be able to tell the difference and see if mayb you'd even go for the entire exhaust system with the header and flex pipe.

p.s. Glad to see you're back in the Focus family, and you're right about FF. I've been smurfing around other car forums and none are the same as THE focus fanatics. Great people, place, and website. I suggested more FocusFest meets so we can all get the focus crew together in the same city for one week but you know how that it is. A lot of planning and expensive too. Hope to hear back from you!

Cheers,
~ Diego

UPDATE!! 10/03/2012

So the FedEx lady came by the other day and delivered my tires and these...


So I had tires and wheels stacked up in my kitchen, the wife finally told me they had to go, so I took the car to Discount Tire and got the wheels and tires mounted up and installed. I also got them to swap the TPMS sensors out of stock 16'' alloys to the new wheels. Here is the result...






Thought I show off how the wheels look like before I lower it. I have to work tonite and tomorrow night, but I'll knock out the coilover install on Friday if I can...
