You could get a billet shorty antenna for your car, but most people just chop their's. Either way, it would be an improvement, although your radio range will drop a tiny bit.

See, here's mine, it was like $12 shipped when Focus Central was still around.


And are you sure that's Malibu Blue? I was thinking it was twilight.

you could probably paint your wheels, nightshade a few parts, or mod your door pillars by sanding them down and painting them with a high gloss black paint.

For a few dollars more you can pick up some clear or smoked corners off of eBay.

Hmmm...

Free

1. Debadge
2. Chop your antenna
3. Remove resonator
4. Fog light mod

$15 mods

1. Smoke (tint) corners, grill, and tails (testor's modeling tint + clearcoat)
2. Chrome muffler tip
3. Overlay stickers for ford emblems
4. Paint headlights to match SVT (gloss paint,silicone sealant, small sanding block)

New lights will cost you around $30.00 for silverstar coolblue, and even more for the better silverstar brands.

Fog lights are way out of that price range.

You could hook your self up with tight ass strut tower covers. $6 shipped off ebay. If your old enough use the change for 30 pack Pabst.


And for free you can rip out the crappy looking firewall insulation and hood liner.

It would cover the difference in cost of upgrading to synthetic oil on your next oil change.
Actually, most technicians will tell you it is highly ill advised to swap over to synthetic engine oil if the car has had more than a few oil changes since it was new. It's really only safe to do so within the first few hundred miles. You can however switch from synthetic to non-synthetic at any time. Just my $0.02.

I've heard that it was okay to switch over as long as you make sure to look out for oil leaks afterward and correct them if they occur.
