Factory stripes are removable.

The mirrors??? Mine are painted.
Any 'replacement' OEM plastic parts usually come unpainted. Like bumpers, mirrors..

You're saying the mirrors are actually painted red and not vinyl overlayed like the stripes.

I retract anything I wrote. It is hard to say if the car you are looking at has 'factory' stripes, or an aftermarket ones.
If aftermarket, or applied by dealer, then most likely the mirrors are same color and body. If the factory did the mirror color change???

I Googled pics of ST with stripes.. and many come with mirrors like you mention, same color as stripe.But some no mirror change.
If I was guessing... the mirror under the wrap is body colored.. But no real know for certain stuff.

You might try checking the VIN and ETIS to find if the stripe came factory done.

YO! Just though I'd update you guys. I Finally decided on and purchased a car. Ended up getting a 2016 Focus ST3 for just over 21k. Was about 21,2xx. 22,9XX all said and done. Has 12k miles on it. Ended up finding one somewhat local. 85 miles away. So didn't have to have it shipped although I have been searching nationwide after people recommended it.

Car has the upgraded premium wheels and came with a magnaflow exhaust. Might see if someone on my local forum will trade me though. Really want the Ford Performance Exhaust.

Happy to be back in a ST though!!! That was a long 2 months
