new 2007 focus mods..??

Hey everyone I just got a 2007 cd silver hatchback about a week ago. I am 19 and because of my new job i was able to go from a 98 accent up to the focus. I am loving my first new car and have a million things i want to do. I am not sure what would look best for the money for my car though. Any ideas on what I should do to "Fiona" first?

Thanks
J

I didnt do my research so i bought bolt cutters (thinking it was metal like every other car ive owned).

Tin snips, or simple wire cutters will do the trick.





thats what it looks like now :)


Worth it. Follow the "how to" and youll be fine.

Welcome man!

I've had mine just over a month now (just turned 1,000 miles this wknd) and so far I've done new speakers,window tint,Magnaflow catback and Steeda SRI.Some small trim stuff is all I want to do since this is my DD after all.

Enjoy your ride and post some pics of your new car.
