I am in the same situation like u. I was a college student and couldnt do anything to my focus. so for the interior I just put seat covers that looks like racing seats. people actually think that they are real so its an affordable way to make it look nicer.

As for performance wise, cheapest thing to do is the Cold Air Intake, at FSWERKS its like a $200 system. and if u want an exchaust it will be like $400. I am just roughly estimating on the prices. Lowering it alittle will give it a way better look but that cost ALOT more money.


btw the plasti dip rims make the car look nice. and I just think of it like our cars were already kinda upgraded with the rims, headlights, tail lights. so it has a sporty look already.


Another way u can make your car look nice is if u put HIDs

I think the only way it would look nice with hids is if it is a PROPER retro-fit , otherwise its just a danger to others on the road . Also if you want to wake that engine up a teeny bit for cheap , you can do whats called the " stealth " cai . If interested in the cai feel free to pm me and i can help you out a little. Btw , when i say cheap i mean about 50 bucks depending on your filter choice.

You can get the Ford Racing suspension kit for ~200 bucks. It'll give a nice ride and a 1.5 inch drop.

Ask discussed earlier the FSWerks cai is a great mod along with an exhaust.

I would start with those three mods.

Actually here a member is selling the whole kit. Make sure you pay less than his asking price for it though as all of us who have it only paid around $310 shipped
