ALSO: The law for michigan is NO tint on front windows at all, rear is any tint as dark as you want.
yea...shes for sale!!! but not too sure if i want to sell it or not, the more i drive it the more i like it. and same story with window tint, i've gone close to limo before and had no problems with it... worst comes to worst i take it off and put it back on when the ticket goes away

I agree with others, I'm not real big on the CF hoods. You've got a nice color to the car, I'd be afraid the CF hood would break up the flow. I second the SVT brake kit, it's a great upgrade, plus it'd look nice behind those wheels instead of the tiny stockers. I'd also recommend SVT mirrors, or at least color-matching the mirror caps and the door handles. Normally I'd say paint the side body trim, but since Konas have that unique side body trim, I'd just keep it as-is. Other suggestions would be: gloss black b-pillar trim and rear triangles, edge rear wiper, rear debadge, and SVT rear wing. Good luck with the modding though, can't wait to see what's next.
thanks for the advice.. def gonna check out the svt brakes. and a wing. got any pictures of your 00 zx3???? my first was a '01 autumn zx3 with black 18's, euro lights wing and bumper. loved the car... wish i still had it

the other thing i as thinking of doing was interior seats.. any suggestions? i love the svt seats but ive only seen them with red and blue inserts, wouldnt match the car. i was thinking maybe a racing seat or if i could find a black one with green inserts id be willing to do that.

I don't have a lot of pictures of it that are worth posting. Most of the time it's just in the background of pics. Here's one though from a recent meet. It's the Autumn Orange in the middle, and that's my SVT in the background:

Black with green inserts would be cool if you could get the color to match pretty well. I've seen some before, but in neon green and they just looked horrible. The EAP Recaros would look awesome, but they're hard to come by. As an alternate option, you could mix and match a little - rear black leather seats out of an EAP SVT or a standard Focus and aftermarket leather front seats.

I love those wheels. What brand are they?

Oh, if youre lucky enough to find a pair, the TDCi focus in europe came with the same seats as svts, but instead of red or blue mesh they had grey mesh inserts. I think they would look sweet!

If not that, I have a pair of MX3 seats that have this really nice green mesh in the middle. If you know anyone handy with a sewing machine you could probably have them reupholster them or something. If not, they would make really sweet panel inserts =P
