whats so bad about the outside its mostly stock! thats the same wing as on the st with SAP like jmillers. and the type r badge. besides that its a stock 4 door sedan on the outside. and the interior can easily be repainted and once again thats another thing i see alot of people doing on here is the blue interior panels although mine are black

i just cant stand painted interior trim.
and i cant stand steel wheels.
his floor mats say NOS.
the steering wheel cover is not an improvment over fords stock steering wheel.
the wing looks out of place on it. the SAP rear bumper is what ties that thing in.

this car looks like it belongs to a 16 year old with no artistic talent or taste who wanted to be different
REALLY badly.

i just feel like these things make the car look like its worth less than it is. but some people say they like it. so i guess its ok if the person looking at it likes it. your right, its mostly stock, and all of it could easily be removed (except the repainting trim would be annoying) but if i was looking to buy a car and it looked like that, i would run the other way. it wouldnt surprise me if the rest of the car was abused and not cared for.

i still think the only thing he really did wrong was the type r badge. the wing is off another focus thats a popular model and the blue interior paint may not be your taste. but theres alot of members on here with the sap wing and theres also alot of member on here with painted interior panels. theres even a writeup in the how to section on here for interior painting. but yes i would throw out the nos floor mats and the steering wheel cover if i bought it

mine are painted, they are a colour very close to liquid grey.if his car was a baby blue it would have some flow. the spoiler just looks off. it was ment to go on SAP's and it looks fine there. i have no problem with people doing body kits but it needs to flow with the car. not scream "LOOK I GOT A BODY KIT"

this is true. but it doesnt have a body kit just a wing and a sticker. and thats why im just modifying my stock bumpers so its not overly obnoxious like a body kit and only a focus owner would probably notice the diffrence
