ThisIsBenji's Race Red '12 Focus SE Sport

I decided to start a build thread, mostly as a way for me to keep a list of things that I want to get done to my car.

Here's my wish list,

Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack
OEM Mud Flaps
Steeda RSB
Steeda FSB
Steeda CAI
Coilovers
18" wheels
Exhaust (possibly)
Window Tint

Here's a few photos of the car as it is today.

No lie, I like how it looks now. I'd leave it alone, except for maybe the flaps.

Because racecar.

Thanks!

I actually love the way the car looks now, anything else that I do to it will be for a purely function purpose.

If I do new wheels it'll be so that I can get summer tires and still have the 17s for the winter. I'll probably go with Sparco Assetto Gara's in black with Bridgestone RE-11s (I love my Battlax BT-003s) as they're lighter than the stock wheels and still black.

The other thing I'm a little iffy on is tints. The only reason I want to tint the windows is because I like to leave the privacy cover (for the hatch) at home.

Anyways I guess what I'm trying to say is I want anything I do to it to not be very noticeable from the outside.

I love my window tint. I went 32% (state legal limit) and love it. would look hot on the red.

Sweet car.
