Want opinions on my ideas for my car

Ok, so now that I've got my new bumper on and it's more or less complete except for a few minor things I think it's time to start thinking ahead to the future and the rest of the car. Of course I have been thinking about all this for a long time I'm just now running it by all of you. I wanna know what you think! How about that? So let's get to it.

This is the car as it exist today...

Alright, now that your up to speed let's talk about the future.
The first thing I'd like to get when I get some more money is the SAP spoiler. I think it's the cheapest option and it will balance the car out until I can get wheels or skirts. You all know what it looks like so i'm not going to bother posting a pic but it'd be silver. And did I mention I'm looking to trade my stock ses spoiler for a sap spoiler? I am.

Next we are talking wheels.
I really have wanted the rs rally wheels for a long time now. I don't have the slightest idea where I could find them though. Anybody?
After the rs wheels I have some other rims I like.

Also, i'm thinking of getting 18's and to raise the car and then lower it back down to it's current height. That will make it drivable and make the wheels look more flush.
As far as wheels go I am open to a whole bunch of other ideas, these are just a few but if I could get the rs rally wheels then that would be most excellent. I was thinking that I could have them painted audi tt grey (is it nimbus grey or something? I'll have to find out.) and the have orange brake calipers underneath.
So along with some side skirts and rear which i've yet to decided on, I'd have a silver car with dark grey rims and orange break calipers underneath. Also, I was thinking it would be cool to paint the inside of the spokes orange and leave the outside grey, I saw a beatle with wheels like that. I would probably only do that with the rs wheels though or something similar. Can you see all that in your head along with the spoiler? What do you guys think? [dunno]

don't go 18s. 17 is about as big as i'd go(you don't want to hit a pot hole with 18s), and they fill out the wheel wells gust fine + go with the frpp(ford racing) suspension, it's only like an inch and a 1/2 drop so you don't blast your new bumper with the road. i like the svt dark agents, woot!

The third wheel looks the best. IMO with all you have going on and so forth the wheels sporting multi spoke are going to be your best bet.

Thanks for all the advice so far guys, keep it coming. This is the only example of the wheels I could find. Imagine that only the wheels are dark grey, the inside is a racing type orange, and they are on my silver car. Frankly, will it work?

i say if you want 18's get 18's and i like the beetle rim idea. also the sap spoiler will not be cheap unless you get lucky, side skirts would be cheap to get.

^^ A RS focus wheels could be powder coated in a similar fashion lol.
I'm glad you said that cause I want to be clear. I am talking about taking rs wheels and doing something similar, NOT taking beetle wheels like that and putting them on my car. That would be stupid. lol. So what about the color combos guys? Orange, dark grey, and silver? Does that work and still look cool? ty.

you know what I would do, I would go with the second wheel. I would be careful with the orange, if you do orange you have to have other things on your car that are orange, otherwise it may turn out a little off balanced and you may no achieve the look you want.

Some other suggestions would be clear side markers and a moderate tint, and a chopped antenna.

You got a good base to work with though, post up some pics when you do decide on wheels and other mods.

i have 18's with the prokit springs, it rides just fine, nothing rubs anywhere, not even durring hard cornering. if you want 18's go for it.

Ok guys, this is a horrible example of what i'm talking about but it's the best i could whip up atm. I've got 3 sections. two are with a darker shade of gray and the other is with a lighter shade of gray. What do you think?

Ok, here you go. Maybe you can extract from these pictures. As far as the orange goes, let's call it leeloo orange for now, i'd like it to be vibrant but not so much that it kills you. I really like this color of gray. I believe this is dolomite gray, not 100% on that. The question here isn't whether or not the colors will work on the wheel but whether or not it will look good on a silver car. So if you or anyone could photoshop that I'd really appreciate it. Thanks. SPACE
