honestly, it comes down to 'the grass is always greener on the other side'

We want Euro parts because we don't have them. Just as some of you UK guys want US parts because you don't have them :)

Nothing in particular is wrong with the US Focus, just that we feel they don't look as good as the ones across the pond

The only thing missing is on the U.S. focus is
euro Front and rear bumper, head and tail lights.

There's no Focus peroformance parts in Australia and thats why i had to buy U.S. parts

hey Neotax, i have euroed out my us focus, maybe you can see why:
u.s. stock





Euro




The answer is, Us Focus are UGLY.

the negatives of us focus
[-]the bumpers stick out too much.
[-]ugly driving lights as grille lights.
[-]too basic of a style

the positive of euro focus
[+]separate high and low beam
[+]a clock in the radio dash
[+]orange indicators for tail lights
[+]better style
[+]better performance(focus rs)
