I don't think I ever posted here, but I'm quite familiar with the forums since I visit it pretty much every day. I'm also on Focus Fanatics, but I love Focaljet for the ton of information that I can find here. So my car is a pitch black ZX3. I'm the owner since a year and I did a couple of mods, mostly appearance right now. Next plans are SVT headlights, euro tails with black housing, and after I will take care of the performance (SVT header, full exhaust to begin with).













All comments welcome!

Yeah the red looks a little too bright for my taste on that pic lol, it was taken with a flash which makes the color really stand out.

Car looks agressive. Have you lowered it any?

I have stock headlights with vinyl applied on them, but this is temporary, I don't want winyl on my car and it doesn't last forever
For the drums, they were rusted, so I painted them with my red caliper paint. They could be black, but they don't bother me... Thanks for the suggestions!

aright sounds good

listen, don't bother with buying a new set of headlights if u just want the look. If u want better preformance with the look, go for ST170's (twin-beam euro headlights with the SVT treatment)..like mine:


if not, just paint the insides of the headlights like the SVT ones. There are many writeups on here and on other sites...here is one

I would love to get st170's, but they're freaking expensive. I don't have that much money to spend for headlights. I'll get used SVT lights, a lot more affordable and saves me the hassle to paint the stock housing.

i got some dark grey headlights that i'm looking to get rid of soon. i'm switching my set out for some ST170s i picked up last week. about your car, though, your engine bay is as red as mine. looks nice. gotta agree with the drums....i can't see the point of painting those things. but as they say, to each their own. good work man

The car looks nice and clean, outside looks good. Only thing for me is TOO much red under the hood, it doesn't flow well.

Other than that looks great

The intake could have stayed black, I agree that the right side is a little busy. Or maybe the battery cover?? Any suggestions? Your SVT looks badass BTW if I check your sig, I need to see that.
