Talking 2008 Silver Ford Focus SES

Just bought this baby 2 months ago, 26k miles on her... So far the only modification I've made is blacking out the rims. What do you guys think I should do to it? Open to all opinions! (I know I need it tinted)

Black out all the chrome bits. Lower it. Nicer wheels.

CAI and exhaust are usually a decent duo to help free up a few extra horsepower and give your car a nicer sound.

As for wheels, that's up to you. I'm a huge fan of the simple&clean look, so I'd recommend the EAP 15spokes.
