Need some ideas!!!!!!!!

Hey guys! I need some ideas. I just bought a 2006 SPA SES ZX4 in February. It is cherry red and I need some ideas on what to do to this thing. I am a chic so it can't be that macho but something that will stand out. I did pick out a pair of black scorpion rims but now that I'm looking on here there are chrome and they look hot. There is no chrome at all on this car and I thought black would be a better choice. I am not putting money into this car until I definitely know what I want to do. SOOOOO, PlEASE help me out!!!! Thanks!!!!!

alright then think long and hard about it and search search search. Black would look really good on a red focus, i think dark wheels with a polished lip look great b/c it seperates the rim from the tire. Gunmetal looks good too. Also pick up a set of svt springs, the st already has the same dampers and shocks basically, and the svt spring will lower the car a bit more.

all I can say is start small and move up as you gain experience and ideas. Like for ex. paint your brake callipers and drums in a color that you wish, tint the windows, put rims etc...the small stuff that is the easiest to do.

SPA Ses focus...
Did she mean SAP SES? (street appearance package)

If so, you won't be needing a bodykit in my opinion.
And I believe Eibach has a suspension kit for 2006.

Wait a few more months and more aftermarket will catch up as far as suspension is concerned.

For more power, I'd suggest a Cold air intake, and a cat-back exhaust for the time being. Both are simple easy mods that unleash more power from the duratec for a total cost of $500 of less.

SOME BLACK ROTA RIMS,carbon fiber hood, lower, intake, header, exhaust, then if you want more power cosworth makes a sweet intake manifoldthen i would get a throttle body and a tune. i suggest focus sport for your header/exhaust or the hks exhaust and cosworth header, Fs is running a sweet deal on the header flex buy the header and get the flex for free.

all of this will put you in the ball park of

4,000 bux but you would have a sweet focus!!

well you could start off with Intake and Exhaust then later you could get a header if you wanted....

personally i think that glossy black rims with a polished lip look sweet, but if you stapped for cash you can always paint them yourself:



also do some interior work cause that's cheap, easy, and it makes a HUGE difference:





from there, definetly go with a good sound system or something.

just check out what others have done and see what you like! then go for it! good luck. you gotta put up pics when you get thigs done.
