Point Taken.

But what if the neon was putting out the same power as the viper?

lol

Okay, back on topic.

Any suggestions on something I can do on the side of the car that would tie in with the hood and roof?

Get low and take those rims off, I know they cost an arm and a leg, but they just don't look good imo. Keep it clean, you don't need stickers to be fast.

I actually think it looks sharp. Obviously most don't but most of the foci look similar. Those graphics will definitely make yours stand out. I also happen to like your wheels.

I know that there are many on here that are all about low and fast, but thats not me. At least not anymore.

There was a point in time where All I wanted to do was make the car go really fast and I didn't really care about what it looked like.

Now, with this focus, I've grown up a bit since my first focus 10 years ago. I'm not all about speed and I don't really have much as for go fast parts and I don't really intend on getting much more. I just want my car to be comfortable to drive on a daily basis and have enough power to get going when I need to.

The current drop is already a 2" drop all around and for me, that is more than enough. Any lower, and I won't be over to go over speed bumps. lol

After looking at the graphics for awhile now, I agree that they do look a bit ricer and I'm going to try again with a different design. As for the wheels, they're not leaving unless some one has a mint condition set of Gold, White, or Black EAP's with brand new tires to trade me. I think they look clean and I love the face that they're 7.5" wide :-).

I have a custom painter in the area working on a new tribal design, based on the original tribal cars. Same idea, different lines. I can't wait to see what he comes up with!

You seem to be set on the stickers. Good luck

Also, I know its a DD, but you can go lower then 2" and still have a comfortable ride with the right setup. Just saying that so that other users don't get the impression that 2" is extremely low, LOL.

Not set on stickers, just set on bringing some color to the side of the car.

I.E.


Or something WRC inspired.
