Exclamation Paint, Wheels, BodyKit?

Hey guys, I'm about to upgrade my 2001 focus pretty soon. Try to give it that mean look ;) I've been looking around at wheels, body kits, and paint but can't decide what to go with...
Right now my 2001 ZX3 is all stock with blue paint, I've been thinking about painting it a metallic cherry and putting on some bronze wheels but I still cant decide on which body kit or which wheels either. I plan on sticking with 16" wheels and dropping it later.

Well just wanted to get some feedback from you guys and see what you guys thinks, what should I do? Give me some wheel ,paint, and body kit combos please! Nothing TOO pricey either but not cheap you know?

Appreciate it. :)

F2 body kit is cool, and the EAP wheels are always primo. i would presonaly skip the paint go bronze wheels on the blue and then drop it. with the money tht you are planning to paint with.

Not exactly what kind of body kit you are looking for whether you want an aggresive one or something that is just a bit subtle. Here is my car in two different kits. The first one is the one it is currently in and it is a polyurethane kit by Kaminari and it fit like a glove when installing. and here are a few pictures of it in the EVO III body kit which is fiberglass and somethings a pain to install but looks really aggressive in my book. hopefully these help you out in some way or another.

I really like that front bumper on the focus.

As for paint I'd leave it blue.

Wheels, maybe rota Track R in gold with a polished lip, bronze grids, or White or Gold EAPs.
