Little known fact the six notches on key.. Four do door, four do ignition.
So you can have a key cut which HAS only the four nips for the door.
Auto key guy told me this years ago.
I do not know if this is also true for the 'lasercut' style keys of MK3 though.
You are wrong about the 4 + 4 idea, all eight of the notches are used in each lock on the Focus. You can remove tabs from the lock cylinder and use less, but that is not the norm.
Any old hardware store can cut you a key that will open the door though. I also have a door-only key, cost me $2.
