Tint looks nice but may be too dark for practical reasons.

The ez lip would look better with the letters removed or painted over.

Ruby Red is an awesome color.

For the rims I'd go with the gloss. The motegis are too common and the squared off edge of those rims don't sit well with the curvy Focus. :-)

And lastly, the red LEDs look good but will be irritating later when you want some usable clean white light to find something in the car. My old car had blue LEDs everywhere, looked cool but not the best usability out of them.

Regarding the wheels: get the lighter weight ones. Gotta be careful with wheels / tires so that you're not adding unwanted pounds.

i do agree with you on everything. the tint is the darkest I could get. looks amazing but very tough to see out the back window at night. and the red led's also are very nice and clean looking unfortuanantly you can barely see the hand in front of your face cause its so dark. I did take your comment into consideration I removed the lettering from the lip. thanks for your input
