Especially where I live since there's only one other modded focus haha

Exactly. I have one of the few new focuses in my area. And the only black sport pack one. I'm finally getting my new place with a garage this weekend. I'm pumped to be able to do stuff without freezing!

Ill add my s cents on the madder.

Here it goes now is modding the worst financial decision yes, is it a complete wast of my time yes, will i ever get the money out of it that i put into it no. Now saying all of that i do personaly feel its worth it to blow all my money so i can feel happy and relaxed after a stressful week of work/ life. Also it fullfills the need to have somethin slightley diffrent that the guy next to me even if our cars are both focus's. im not one to dump money into the motor since i bought it for fuel milage but ive only spend $300 on the car and ive got new headlights, tailights, wheels, and an intake. As long as u can mod sensibly and thuraly injoy the work u putt into it then its all worth it.

In my opinion it's all in what you do to your car. If you go for performance wheels and tires
(aka snow tires etc) or other safety items such as upgraded lighting etc then it's money well spent. If your spending half the price you paid for the car on paint and other mods then unless your going to car shows to win money or get your ride in a magazine than I'd have to vote "no"...

i just got my a K&N short ram intake for my 03 SVT and getting a throttle body and exhaust to go along with it soon. I think it is worth it because to me it is something i enjoy. I love working on cars and tweaking different things to make my car preform better. And i realize i wont get the $ back but thats ok because i know i will have great times with this car. Im not going to seriously mod it or anything until i have another car so that this one isnt a daily driver. but i plan to do alot of work on it in future and i cant wait to make it one of a kind. To me it's worth it.

Worth it. Without car modding every vehicle would look the same. I like to be different and how boring would it be to not see cool looking cars. It is kinda a hobby but everyone should have some hobbies they like to spend money on
