Actually they still look good, I really need to wash my car, so havent tested them in high pressure water, when I do wash it, I will probably wash the wheels on low pressure. But I didnt even get as many coats as I would have liked (id say ideally almost a whole can per wheel, it does get a little tiring but it was fun. I dipped my emblems on the back as well and its still holding up well, I had read from someone in a previous post that plastidip is very durable and could last up to like 12 years. Id imagine so considering on the can it shows it being used to coat the handle of some pliers lol. I also did the airbox resonator delete, though I dont notice much difference in sound or performance, considering doing the drop in k&n filter or a cheap cold air intake, not sure which would be the better option, should research I suppose...

I don't have fogs so I wouldn't know.

I have a 2007 and when I turn my high beams on, my fog lights go off.

What did you use to paint that black on your front bumper? and how did you go about doing it?

OK it was a few bucks over $30, but it is my first mod to my new Focus. Got blue lug nuts, and valve stem caps



I was thinking of painting my calipers blue next

Looks good. Do you have any distance shots of the wheels?

I picked these up at auto zone, my store had them sitting out on a display. It came with all 20 and 4 of them are the locking lugs with a key.
