Here are a couple of pics of my new Focus with mods I've managed so far. I hope to modify it more as and when funds allow.

Got a couple of mods under my belt already.

C2A38799-2E33-4B5B-B914-F8AB1467724C-579
The Factory LED rears are a subtle change to the standard option lights!
74B76979-3235-49E0-8DBE-13C30C8CE156-649
98A14C5C-F3E8-4F68-BC99-0C18FA1642BB-649
Fitted an LED Reverse bulb.
67C040EA-B606-4346-8B22-AABD779E17AB-900
Also fitted Number Plate LEDs from my old Focus.
18AA8CC5-FA12-4974-B82A-F40E3D90ACAC-900
Decided to upgade the sidelights.
LED Vs Normal bulb
6534229A-2A35-4EFB-941F-A9A808A4F7AF-691
LED matches Xenon better
A62EEB17-D7BC-4277-A026-B05B782E42FE-691
Both LED Sidelights in!
A6FEA226-95D6-40F8-96C7-733FDCDF79FF-691
Decided to Carbon Wrap Stereo Surround and centre console to match the spokes on the steering wheel.
A2ED900A-8748-40F1-A713-CB81CEDDAF9D-693
I got some alloys cheap with decent tyres on!
New Vs Old
277BDC06-7D71-43A4-9519-7CE7A2B90B0D-722
The car then had a wash and positioned in the sun to show its colour and new shoes off!
FE0E86C7-F4A9-438A-9EE7-6CBFFB46469B-722
Think the colours go quite well together.
C955FD26-4662-4699-AA34-AB9277C3551D-722

I decided to take the plunge and try to wrap the rear diffuser! After fighting with it for a little while I'm reasonably happy with it.
AD34882B-382D-4D7D-B587-DD915FEC5953-590
So after wrapping the diffuser decided to have a go at the Chrome Boot Handle.
68D37E39-B731-4554-88B5-DEB22E0FB877-732
And a pic of the 2 together.
B3B29CB2-00D0-4B18-8AA2-3F3653BC3AFA-732
Decided to cheat and buy an already wrapped bonnet lip. Unfortunately it's a copy part that has been wrapped so fit isn't perfect but pretty happy with it!
So it's gone from Chrome lip,
BCAB28B7-B2BB-4E20-8176-BC957C05852D-771
To no lip,
6C9059B7-325E-498B-B529-1685F425A20D-771
To Carbon Wrapped lip!

While i was playing Thought I'd have a go at doing the fog light rings.

Cheers B4zz.
Wrapping isn't to hard gets easier with practice but I cheated with bonnet lip and bought a pre wrapped one off Ebay.
Bonnet lip is held on with 3 lugs and sticky strips so just a case of gently pulling it off, and the fog rings needs a gentle push out of the surrounds! Rings were a pig to wrap though!

Cheers Preee! Yeah the titanium wheels weren't my favourite design either, like the mondeo rims but originally was toying with painting the centre body colour and having the lip Silver/Chrome but found these ones at a bargain price. They could do with a refurb as there are a few blemishes but do I keep them this colour or go with original plan?
