The 1000$ question

I been thinking about what i would like to do for my mods for 2013

Current mods
Enkei Ev5 rims
FFRP lowering kit
Ebay projectors with 5k hid and 3k fogs
Upgraded drilled and slotted roters with ebc greenstuff
Fswerks upper and lower stress bars massive rear bar.
Massive camber arms and toe arms
Massive endlinks
Fswerks intake and stealth exhaust
93 octane tune
Fswerks header and flex
3d carbon front lip and side skirts
Polk audio speakers
Kicker 12'' sub
sound ordnance amp
kenwood deck

So i was planning on spending around 1000 to 1500 on the car and i was wondering what other people had for input on mods..

maybe cf hood and coilovers? Maybe dogbone and tubular control arms?

idk how coils would work for my daily driving in the northeast...

car is a 2009 black ses 4 door auto

Moved to Mk3 Discussion forum. That's where you post about performance mods. Ford Focus General Car chat is for discussions relating to nonspecific Ford Focus models, car purchasing, auto industry news and any car talk.

Thanks for posting!

It really sounds like it's very well modded to begin with. More suspension may be a good investment, but as you mentioned, northeast roads aren't always welcoming to hard suspensions. :(

Sorry, Tapatalk broke it up so it looked like they were different lists. I would go with coilovers at least. The roads out here aren't that bad, they're manageable even if you're slammed. But I'm pretty sure you wouldn't regret getting coilovers because you can always go lower if you really want to, but you can also stay at a nice clean ride height.

Not for $1500. FI Tune, 3" Exhaust, and the a tual turbo kit itself will run way more usually.
