Finally got around to taking some pictures so I figured I'd start a thread for the mods that will eventually make their way to the car. For now it is stock.

A little background on the car..
I purchased my Oxford White Focus ST3 on 7/18/2013 from Willowbrook Ford in Willowbrook, IL from a friend at the dealer. They did not have the specific car I wanted so I had a 4 mile old ST3 transferred over from Bill Kay Ford in Midlothian, IL. This started on a Wednesday evening and by the next afternoon my car was ready for me to come and complete the deal. The car is fully loaded ST3 with Navigation and Sunroof. Because it was a dealer trade from a dealer 25 miles away, I acquired the car with 29 miles on the odometer.

Hit 100 hours of driving in the car yesterday, which was accompanied by the 3000 mile, milestone as well. I've now owned the car for 46 days and still love everything about it for a daily driver. I'm 45 days in on the TSB waitlist and still really have no end in sight there but I'm really in no hurry as I can drive around the "bang" for now. Only real gripe about the car is the cupholders. I thought the 12v supply by the cupholders between the seat heater controls would be an issue but I really never use it as my cellphone charger is plugged into the rear of the center console and then the cord runs up between the seat and the console itself

Mods to date are only tints, a roof rack, and some LED/bulb swapping here and there. But I have a magnaflow muffler, h&r springs, and the corsair intake runner spacer/sysmposer delete waiting to go on and an Accessport V3 on order from FSWerks.

Will post a couple pictures later today once I can upload them

Hey... where did you get that idea to wrap the roof and rear spoiler like that? Haha.

Looking good! I really like the wrap! I plan on doing some stripes myself, still deciding how I want to do it.

Like the wrap, it looks great!

I see some of your parts are made by Corsair. I did a quick Google search and didn't come up with anything, are they a local shop?
ah, I should update that, Corsair is a member here that now goes by BreedT
