I think it's a good thing to clue people in on what works and doesn't work but yes we all have different opinions but some things are universally dumb among most car enthusiasts.

I see alot of stuff people do on this board and then i see the same things being made fun of but only when it's about the competition but if it's on a Focus or a Ford it's being "innovative".

Wouldn't the Shelby mod also require some Shelby stripes?

The letters are so obviously photo shopped, and thank god they are cause I think it’s an embarrassment for the rest of us. If you owed a gt500 great but I not going to put an M badge on mine cause i used to own one. Yea a gt500 is a Ford but it’s in no way more related to Focus than an M3, totally different beast. I would not even put a TI emblem on SEL. DON’T BE A POSER.

There is a Shelby ST Focus now. Its not much better than just slapping the badge on though so far. No real performance improvement.

But this is more closely related to putting a Cobra badge on your Focus...it makes no sense and confuses people. Even people that know little about cars equates the Shelby name to the Mustang brand.

I'd stay away from it. Don't think it looks very good...
