do you use sat radio? if you don't use either then how bout shaving the antenna?

As far as the int panels go, it's enought to notice, but not overwelming. I have the center dash and console in mine (close match) and looks awesome!

I have some rims that are very close to the ones you are looking at, they are sparcco as well but slightly different spoke pattern.





I opted to black out as much as possible in my car, painted the silver bits inside, swapped interior tan with a black interior, blacked out tail lights, black, grille, etc.



Also color matched the "Focus" on the door panels and dash.





Love this mod






Got a full list of my mods in my profile if you want to check it out, or if you want pics of something specific just ask.

------Edit--------

I plan on getting coilovers this weekend and won't need my lowering springs anymore. Just an FYI

OP, it's not that big of a job to paint the interior. As you can see alot of guys have done it with great results. It's a fairly cheap mod that really change the inside of your ride.

I know it's not hard, I painted half of my old car. 2 Bumpers, grille, 2 side skirts,quarters and doors. It's just whether or not it would look good.

Judging by the picture above with the blue interior, I don't like it and will leave it.


Anyways, my 3D kit will be here in a few days, getting windows tinted saturday, gonna order lowering springs within a few days. I will buy rims later in the winter, when it's closer to spring.

Can't wait to see this thing come to life!




I also want to undercoat my whole trunk area under the mat, and in the spring rip my interior apart and undercoat it on the inside for some sound proofing.

are you gonna wait til spring to put the springs on with the wheels or just do it now? if you wait you'll have the extra clearance through winter, but might be easier to get bolts out now. that lower rear control arm bolt likes to sieze.

I plan on putting the springs on within a few days of getting them. Bigger rims and tires won't be until spring. All I am doing for now is closing a little bit of the fender gap.

Love that blue car above, I can't wait!


So far I have ordered:
3D Carbon Kit
Eibach Pro Kit Springs
Stubby Antenna
Better HID bulbs for my retrofit
And it's getting tinted on saturday!
