05 ZX3 SE with Sway Bar

I have a 05 ZX3 SE with a factory swaybar. Everything I read states that from 05 and up, only the SES has the rear bar from the factory.

The swaybar is definitely factory, I can't find my calipers to measure.

The car is definitely an SE, it came with 15" alloys. From what I can guess though, it was fully optioned out, perhaps the sway bar came with one of the packages? It has: leather seats and leather tilt/scope wheel, steering column audio, 6 disc CD with the sony branded speakers, power everything, sunroof, and fog lights. The only things it doesn't have are heated seats and ABS/TC.

Or did I just luck out and somehow on the assembly line an SES became an SE?

I've seen at least two option packages that Ford Canada offered for the '05 SE that added non-standard SE options. The most important being the tach and the SES suspension. I have an ZX3 SE "Adrenalin" (I debadged the "Adrenalin" from the hatch) that is not as well optioned as yours but I wanted a 3 door hatch only which is not available as an SES in Canada, and I wanted the upgraded suspension (rear stab. bar & larger dia. front), so I was lucky to find this option packaged SE. I would not have bought it otherwise. I could have lived without the Sony Audiophile woofer in the trunk, but it has the other power options (no sunroof, no leather, which is fine) that are nice. I wonder what your option package was? Mine was a May '05 production car that must have been near the end of the Mexico production run. Maybe they had the option "stuff" lying around and they wanted to use it up.
