What are your mod plans for your Fusion

After I complete my audio overhaul, I'd like to do a complete steeda suspension upgrade with some 19" wheels with 245/35/19 BFG KDW's and keep my stock 17" SEL wheels and tires for winter use. I also plan on doing the mazdaspeed 6 big brake conversion, I also want to swap out my lower grille for a sport version, I like the looks better. I may also add sport side skirts if I can find a set cheap. And finally, if I can find a donor car cheap enough I want to make mine the first "Fusion SHO", I call it project SHO-sion by swaping in a 3.5L twin turbo ecoboost engine out of a taurus SHO. Actually if I ever do the ecoboost swap, I'm gonna get SHO-SION on my plates and swap out the 'EL' for 'HO' on the trunk and change the flex-fuel badge for an ecoboost one. My goal is to make it look like ford actually built a fusion SHO

Well good luck! I look forward to seeing progress!

As for me, mine is about finished. If I keep it until next Spring I would like to do a square tire/ meaty flush setup...18" wheels on big sidewall tires...

Like so (pic not as meaty as I'd like...)

I have a Milan, can I still play?

Just picked it up yesterday but things that I am doing very soon are tint then HIDs and LEDs. I think clear corners would look nice on my ugly tan.

Then figure out which double din head unit I want.

I need to figure out what plugs and air filter are best for my 2.3 I4 engine.

Color match lower grill, fog light housing & rear bumper insert. Throw on some nicer exhaust tips and I think that will be it.

I wouldn't mess with the plugs...as for filter, the Steeda SRI is a really nice piece.

I think black corner markers...

Sure can, the milans are just the ugly sisters to the fusions.
The MKZ's are the red headed step child of the family that you lock away in the closet when visitors come by so no one sees her.

Haha, I actually like the front of the Milans better than most stock Fusions. And I think the Lincolns are the best looking . Not a fan of chrome on most cars.

Plans for my fusion... good question, haha.

I am currently in my last semester of college and will be moved and working at my new job in about two months.

Any mods I do to my Fusion, I want to look like it would come from the factory that way. I plan on getting a 5ch amp to power new speakers and build an integrated-esque sub and amp shelf in the trunk.
All of this while keeping the factory stereo.

I also plan on doing easy, simple mods: strut tower brace, sway bar, SCT tuner(after 60k when warranty is up), etc.

I also plan on doing a BiXenon retrofit, and painting the interior of my lamps to match the body color.

I want to find(or order) a monochrome appearance grill for my sterling grey fusion as well.

I also want to smoke my side markers, paint the chrome on the front of the car flat black once I get the grill.

Uhh... I think a rear roof spoiler would look really good on these. I haven't seen one yet, but still.

I honestly think that's about it, mostly cosmetic haha. Its a great daily driver and gets great mpg. I just want it to look good and be functional :)

then why do most all fusion owners want projectors, LED tails or two tone interior that Milans' have?

Although you have a 1.5 gen so you have projectors.. but most 1st gen Fusion owners want those things.

What are the best mods for the money?? I've had mine for about a week and the only thing I can find is steeda parts. I know for mustangs they are good but what about our cars?? I'm working on getting it tinted adding a sub and maybe tinting the tail lights. But as far as power up grades I don't know???
