I love driving my car, it is highly modified and somewhat track oriented, but an ST buddy recently said it looked "pretty stock."

What are some of the more unique mods you have seen on a FoST or you have done to your own?

I mean head on it looks stock, aside from the front lip. Especially when you cant see the spoiler or side skirts. Maybe lose the snowflakes and you would be good, shaving the grill would help also. Just my thoughts.

I've been focusing on the interior lately. Reupholstering the front door panel fabric inserts in a nice suede leather, changed out the chrome trim on the outboard vents to a base Focus's flat black vent (reduces the reflection you see in the window when looking at side mirrors), changed the middle vent bezels and front door chrome trim over to the painted blue-grey trim of a non-ST Focus, wrapped the HVAC and shifter surround trims in gunmetal vinyl wrap. Definitely stuff I've seen no other FoST owners doing. Next up I'm going to be adding a '15 ST wheel, Sync 3 infotainment, a backup camera, and making my own shifter boot out of real leather.

My center stack as of yesterday, pending the new boot:

on the exterior of my car its only lowered with rays gramlights 57xtremes. I love when I meet other st guys at meets and they assume my car is stock. Then I get to tell them it makes 425 to the wheels and they shut up. If you like the way the car looks then leave it... don't do something cause someone said your car doesn't meet their visual needs
