Better then having a light colored car and cleaning it and thinking its clean when its really still just as dirty lol.

Anyway, they not the same actually, the Euros are dark agent gray, the new ones are like dark chrome or something. Thats too expensive I think you can get them online somewhere for close to 100 each so it should only cost you about 450 the most. But Ford can charge a premium on them cause they limited edition. But yea that is kinda funny....but um, Dealers Don't Know Anything lol.

yeah 500 isn't bad. i think it would be about the demand that would alter the pricing, not the differences in the wheel

when I went to the dealer to get a new tranny, I had an argument w/ the guy cause he said I have the IB5 tranny. I have the zetec, not the spi. He was trying to tell me that I didn't know what I was talking about cause he has his little computer in front of him (which was feedinig him lies) and he was convinced he was right. He was trying to tell me that the MTX-75 didn't come out till after the S2 model!! I was laughing at him cause he was SOOOOOOOOOO wrong!!! what a freakin moron!!! had to get his boss in there to stop arguing w/ me!! I finally just left calling them idiots cause they had not idea what they were talking about. Then went to the other dealer nearby and got the tranny!! for all u detroit peeps, stay away from suburban ford off of van dyke!!! they are retarted!
