2012 Ford Focus SE Hatchback

Hey Everyone,

So got my first car, the focus and I'm loving it.
I have been looking into adding stuff to it (rims, air intake, exhausts etc)
and im looking for some feedback on whats good on the market for what i want.

I've done some research into air intakes and from what I've gathered cold air intakes seem to be the best option for better performance (colder air, better air to fuel ratio),
If you disagree let me know
If you have any cold air intakes you know of that are good let me know

I've also looked into performance chips but they do not have them for 2012 and newer, does any one know if they will come out in the near future?

Have you used plastidip on your cars? is it any good?
the only thing that bothers me with it is it peeling off.

Thanks for your feedback :D

I got a picture of my car and also rims i was looking at.
Hopefully the pictures got added..

I have used PlastiDip on my wheels and other things in the past. As long as you have enough coats on it, it will peel very easily. On my wheels last time, I used my pressure washer to remove and came off without any issues!

to the sight.

All the information you're looking for concerning aftermarket upgrades can be found in the Mk3 section (which you now own) and by using the search function. Happy hunting!

I have has PlastiDip on my Chevy Cobalt for over a year and almost 2 years on my truck without any issues. It is more durable than you think.

Great rims I almost went for some knock off bbs rims that looked sweet on my white titanium but got oem black rims instead on CL for cheap also got a new black st style wing, tints and painted the calipers red.
I like the look of grey and black my buddy did that to his mazda 3 and it looks great with a touch or red plasti dipped his emblems came out great
