Hi i was just wondering what i can do to make the front of my 2006 focus look abit more agressive i was thinking of some kind of badboy bonnet. Does anyone have any ideas or views as im getting abit bored of how the front of my car looks its already a focus st replica so it got the st bumpers and everything but just getting bit bored of it. If anyone has a focus that looks agresive on the front then please upload pic on this post please thanks.

You could make it a ST500 reproduction by adding stripes.
That would make it a bit more different.

The ST 500 is so limited that it would certainly be an eye catcher to do a rep.
I haven't seen any rep ones before so the next step up from a boggo standard ST rep has a touch of individuality about it.
Whichever way you decide to go, i would be interested to see the finished article.
Please do post pics as, when and if you go ahead.

How about an induction trumpet a.k.a induction hole. I think they look smart and gives the impression of power they could be fake or have a cold flow to your air filter, another option a debadged grill, they really give the car a mean or aggresive look, and possibly eyebrows for headlights they give a meaner look, just depends on your taste.

I never used to like splitters that much but they have grown on me that one on ebay is a good price and doesn't look over the top so I would consider it definetly. Just be careful if you have lowered it.

As for wrap you could wrap your roof and inner bonnet with carbon fibre effect with it being black thats what I would do. but again depends on your taste that shouldn't cost too much and is not that difficult but make sure you have plenty of people say a minimum of 3 to help you do it if you would yourself.

i will be getting the splitter when i got the money and i was thing of the ott st500 stripe but in like a lime green going across the bonnet roof and down the side too i think that will look really good as the car is black when its cleaned it will stand out really good. Car will get lowered on eibach 30mm when i can afford to get it
Fozza
That will look really smart infact I do love using green and black. When you do it please send us a pic it will look spot on and it will be aggresive looking then.

Thanks mate and welcome its just that i had it for a while now and getting bit bored of how plain it looks so thought make it stand out and i think it will look more agressive to. I was first thinking of selling my replica bits and turning my car in to the face lift replica like eg 2009 model but its just to expensive so that idea is out of my head.

Hi just a quick update the thing i wanted to do to the car is on hold at the moment as i have other thing to sort out first of all i bit busy at work and dont have alot of time. The main thing is i have water leak as i got the car washed yestoday and when it was getting jetwashed water starterd running down my windscreen looked like it was coming from the roof linen but i think it the seal around the windscreen.I'l keep u informed on what happens. I was also thinking of spreying my grilles same colour as the car as there dark grey at the moment but il see what happens.
moy24
just a quick update the eyebrowes i recived is the wrong one i just put it on the car not stuck it on yet and relised they sent me the mk3 focus ones which wont fit my headlight so i posted them back and should recive the new one next week. Im still in 2 minds if i should put the green stipes on the car as im worried when i put it on it will look abit boy racer look. if any one can use photo shop please contact me as i would like to see how it will look b4 i do it. What you all think the green stipes as i saide like the st500 but in green or should i do the roof all green and the bonet green not all the bonnet just the middle bit where you can see the line of the bonnet if you no what i mean.

haha yeah i wish ring them up and ask how much it will cost to add viper stripes and side stripes to the car i think you may be surprised the car is now more appealable to thiefs and stands out
moy24
il ring them tommorow and see what they say thanks for your advice
artscot79
just a word of warning thats all its not sumat you can hide if you did have an accident i wanted to do it but was warned by a friend of a friend he did it to his fiesta and got shunted at a junction insurance wouldnt pay as it wasnt a declared modification and not standard to the car he admited he knew that but wasnt prepared to pay the extra when he quiried it
