Well, I picked up something for my Focus the other day. Got it for cheap. I'll just throw up a picture and see who guesses it. I painted it to match the scheme.

Is it your water tank cover or perhaps the stress bar?

your all wrong. I replaced the muffler bearing. DUH
and i filled the blinker fluid.

but, for realz, bought the strut tower bar as blue yesterday, sanded, primed, and 2 coats of flat black later, boom. Blends in nicely, don't ya think? If the car had more to it, I would of picked a secondary color, like red, and painted a section of it that color, but with it being near stock, i sprayed ti black so it didn't look out of place.

Yea, i kinda [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] up though. I wanted to make it blend better, so i put the two wires over the top of the bar. After driving, they rubbed through the un-cured paint, and chipped it away. SOOO, it comes back out tomo for 2 more coats, and I am going to run them underneath, and protect it by putting electrical tape on the underside to prvent the paint from being rubbed away.

Minute change. It's actually the first real aftermarket performance application i've added since i bought the car. I've mostly dabbed on just the visual crap until this(headlights, grill, wheels, tint, turns [see pic below]etc...), if you want to call it performance. with no other suspension pieces to support it, I can hardly tell. Only during hard cornering i can hardly tell. Its just a tad bit more stable through the corner. whenever i get the money, I will get the H&R touring cup kit, and the gains will be more noticeable.

*w/o tint on front windows (35% front 2, 20% in the back)

idk about you guys but it is literally the best thing i've ever done to my car, handling is SO much tighter, understeer is ZERO, i don't rub in quick left-right turns, and its great to lean on haha

best bang for your buck in my opinion...you are all liars [;)]

if the car had more suspension modifications to compliment it, it would probably have been more noticable.

...understeer is ZERO...
[limp] If that bar actually did what it was supposed to, you'd have MORE understeer. The firewall is right there though, so these bars are pretty redundant on Focuses. I don't know about your car, but my firewall doesn't flex up and down. Yikes!
