Misfire's Progression Thread (from MK1 to MK2 to MK3)

So, I will start off by saying that I have been here officially since January of 2006 and have owned Foci since 2005. In my 8 years of Foci ownership, I have had 3. An MK1, MK2 and an MK3.

Here is a pic of my 2003 LX:








Was about to paint the rear bumper and lower the car when I dropped a valve seat. So, I traded the 03 LX in on a new 2010 SES. The day the two met:



and my 2010 SES





Loved my MK2 SES, but its seats were killing my back. Traded it in on my MK3 SEL

and the day my MK2 met my MK3



And my MK3 the day I took her home:





First mods:
Debadged and tinted the tails


Then I plastidipped my wheels to see how they looked in black. I liked it and so I painted them black and glossed them.



Then had my windows tinted



added mud flaps and a Euro front plate



installed a Titanium engine cover


added Titanium/ST1 headlamps, painted the fog surrounds black and added yellow film to the fogs



Had my 3D carbon spoiler installed and later painted


Had ST exhaust installed for a bit. Went back to stock afterwards with a tip welded on



And most recently I had new wheels installed and this is where she stands as of 06/2013

I'll get some more pics of the MK1 up. I am planning a color match all around.

I must say, I liked the MK2 the best out of all of them. Nothing wrong with the rest just that one is my favorite.
