can anybody help me??

I don't necessarily need help I'm just wanting to know why the hell my car looks like it does.... I have a 2006 Ford Focus SES ZX4. But this particular make has a higher wing (looks like the Cobalt SS wing) front rear and side body kit (all stock) and its a 5spd manual. My question is how come if you look at ford's page you will not find anything about this vehicle? I've seen maybe 2 that looked the same in a 2 year span? Is it a special edition? (thats what I'm guessing the SES stands for, Special Edition Sport) If anybody has any light to shed on this strange vehicle please do so. Oh and by the way this car is nearly impossible to find aftermarket parts for :(

Sounds to me like your Focus came with the SAP(Street Appearance Package). The SAP came with a higher spoiler on the sedans, and special side moldings and a different front bumper and grille.

Depending on what you're looking for, there are many aftermarket parts for the Duratec Foci.

I'm just starting to learn about cars, but there was a new thread on the 08 focus special edition and i dont think they were talking about the focus SE or SES because I have the SES and I really dont think it stands for special edition sport. I'm not sure what it stands for though, I searched wikipedia and it didn't have it in there.

Does your Focus look like this?




This is an SE model. Yours is an SES, so it has 16" wheels and a rear sway bar.

yeah it looks like that one. And yes it has the 16" alloys. But I have went into many different place looking for parts ie Autozone, and the likes, and they just seem to never have anything for my make and model. Just recently I went into a store near my house called FUEL and they managed to find a cold air intake. other than that there is no aftermarket headlamps or tail lights for some reason. They say that the lights are a little different from the normal models???

Lights? do you mean the bulbs or like the actual headlights. There are plenty of aftermarket parts for the focus, it is just that you are not going to find them in like regular stores like autozone or pepboys. Take a look at this forum, there's a bunch of useful info and it is a great way to start. Also there's a special section of vendors where you can find aftermarket parts for you fofo. Hope it helps.

SAP can come on any trimed focus ZX3/ZX4/ZX5/Station Wagon I do believe was available if I am not mistaken, it's a extra thousand dollar package for looks rather than performance wise.
