Hey everyone, my name is Cody. I am new here obviously. Just joined the forum and bought my first Focus today. It's a 2012, sonic blue with black wheels. It is a 5 spd. Believe it or not, I never knew how to drive stick before this car so it's my first manual as well. I love the car and stick is a lot of fun to drive. I'm 27 and it feels like when I first got my license all over again. I'm excited and want to drive everywhere lol. Anyways, I was just posting to introduce myself and show my brand new car. I'm also a member over on SVTPerformance as I used to own a Lightning. I miss that truck everyday, but I'm glad to be back in something I can enjoy and mod tastefully to my liking. I don't have too many plans as of now for it. I would like to purchase coilovers, maybe some tint, smoked headlights and possibly a system. I figure I'd be content with that for the time being. Well enough rambling, I look forward to posting regularly and becoming part of the community.

Here's a quick picture from the dealership. Unfortunately it rained right after they cleaned it up for me. I will post a few more later. I didn't get many because I had to head right to my job from the car lot.

Those are a top 3 favorite wheel for me, also color is awesome, would have looked good all waxed up, sitting in your parking lot, dry.

Thanks guys. I'm kind of bummed at how there's no bass to the stock sound system in mine. Definitely going to have to put a sub in asap. Weather here has been kind of crappy here the past 2 days. I'll get it cleaned up again soon. In the mean time I've been reading up on mods and such in here. I've made myself a list of mods I plan to do in the future.

Eibach Sportline Springs
Steeda CAI
Smoked headlights and tails of some sort.
Tint
System (thinking 1 12 and a decent amp)
Exhaust (unsure of brand yet)
Tune

This should make me pretty content for a while. I was also thinking of doing one of the lip kits. I'm just unsure if I want to mess with painting any body parts. I definitely plan on doing a black theme to go with the sonic blue color of the car.

Let me know if you guys have any input. I'm always open for suggestions and advice.

Thats a pricey little list there if I say so myself. Little at a time and you will be good. IT will make a difference for sure. Keep us posted.

I wish I could buy all that at once haha. I plan on doing a little at a time. Probably going to start with the Eibach springs first. Would I need anything else to go with the springs? I know an alignment is necessary, but is there anything else I need to purchase?
