Please know: This is the first time I have ever used a forum, I am excited to be apart of the FocuST community but I don't know how to use this yet so hang in there.

To start off, I am in the car business, sales, Ford dealer to be exact. A few years ago I wanted the Focus ST, of course selling them I had a special appreciation for the car, there were just lots of things I would have wanted different to make the car more drivable for me. I would have to say, I hate the sound symposer, the body roll is awful and the shift in the throw is way to long, so after buying a brand new $24k car I was going to have to spend a few bucks and at that point I really didn't want to do that to a brand new car under warranty, regardless of what "voids" and "doesn't void" factory warranty. So I bought a Fiesta ST(green envy), threw Ford Racing exhaust on it and drove the **** out of it for 2 years, LOVED it, and be honest with yourselves, it is more fun than the focus out the box. I since have traded that in on other things. Oddly enough I was driving a civic and a diesel truck at the time and two separate people wanted those two vehicles more than I did, so I sold them. Now I needed something. Well guess what? An old man brought in a 2013 ST bone stock with 96k miles and traded it in for a new one. I took this as a sign that this car was meant for me. Hate he color, but oh well, it is spotless just has miles. With me having my mechanical background and the know how, miles don't scare me and it also means, Car out of warranty= I can do whatever I want to it. Once the two cars I had were history I started to put a list together on my Notes App on my iPhone, the list got big fast.

Told ya! As you can see I would check it off as it was ordered. I'm don't play around. I had done the research over the last 4-5 years and knew what I wanted. So in two weeks after purchasing the car, if it is checked, it is on the car.

Please feel free to ask any questions or for my opinion on any of these products!

I don't like all of them, I'll say that.
I am in the industry and unfortunately some people don't take much pride in what they do.

Agency Power, highly disappointed. Had to be modded but I wouldn't trade the triple titanium tip for anything else on market.

Let me know what ya think, she's not done tho. Vinyl wrap roof goin on today!

Why the red mirrors? Do you plan to paint the rest of the car too, Or tie them in with vinyl decals? It's starting to look good. I see you went with the SCT tuner. Who are you having tune it?

Looks good. The cp-e parts are a great choice. The Exhale kit you will have the choice to add the BOV that fits it. I personally have the exhale with TiAL BOV. It's a bit more subtle compared to the HKS. For suspension I would either recommend the Mountune Clubsport kit or if you want coilovers MFactory YCW Reference coilovers. Rear sway bar go with the Strano. For the splitter check out the Rally Innovations. It's aluminum and very nice. Most of the parts I mentioned I've reviewed in my build thread.

The red will tie in to more places. Kinda like the nismos and minis. Just different. Started with mirrors to see what else I wanted to do. Originally I was gettin wheels done red but now that the mirrors are done I may just do calipers red, so it's not too much. Like my cars to look put together well. Appreciate the compliment. SCT Tuner hasn't been purchased yet, and my dads gotta guy that tunes his '33 I'll use.

Running HKS SSQV on cPe exhale, makes me smile. #RIPpw ??


Did the eibach sport-plus, be silly not to use this or pro-plus kit from eibach. You'd have to drive one to see what I mean. Coilovers ride like s*** in my opinion, no offense, unless you spend $2500 and that's just dumb. And even then you've only bought springs, a lot more to a good ride and performance. But I'm sure you know that. :)

I had the eibach pro kit on my last focus. Springs, dampeners, front and rear sway bars. Mountune's Springs are made by eibach. I forget which dampeners they pair with them but they are good quality and get rave reviews. The Strano rear bar is the best if you auto x. I finally broke down and bought one. Just installed it and my rear stays in check now.

I'm kinda digging the red mirrors. Nice job on those.

I think it can be easy to get carried away and just start painting things because you're bored. I'd even go to a black wing riser. The red calipers would work too but I'd leave it there.

Glad to see some higher mileage ST's. I have a PB '13 just like yours about to hit 50k and all of the blown motor threads are making me a little nervous that my warranty runs out in 1500 miles...
