Help me make my focus maaad

Just purchased a white 2010 Focus LV Zetec and will be picking it up in a week or so. I want to do some cosmetic mods to make it look good. But I want them to be some cheap easy mods.

I was hoping you guys could reccommend some

Welcome to the forum. Not many non-Americans on here and I know the UK models are different than the U.S. ones not sure about the Aussie ones. Can you post some pictures of it when you pick it up? You have to use a picture hosting site to post pictures on this forum.

Upgrade the lighting. Led tail lights, hid head lights, and fog lights. There are a few types of paint you can apply over the wheels that will give you the color you want but will not require sanding and can be removed easily just by pulling it off when you get bored with the color.

I wonder if the body kit of a rs or st will be a direct fit. That will give you a wider lower and more aggresive look

Looks like a mix between a first gen hatch and the new body style, weird!

Try spitting on it, calling it bad names, and feeding it bad gas.

Nice ride! Looking at pictures of an ST here in the states I don't think the front grille and bumper would be a direct fit. You could de-badge it by using thick dental floss on the Focus and LX badges and then buying some stickers for the Ford badge. You can get flames in various colors or any number of other designs. Here is the back of my car:



Also you could look for a cold air intake for your engine and some performance spark plugs.

You can black out some chrome, darken the tail lights. Play with some plastidip on the wheels.

Maaaad, eh?

Either that's a cool term in Australia still, or someone's been watching too much MightyCarMods on YouTube ;)

(And I don't blame you cause they're funny as heck!)
