1st Post, need Focus suggestions

This is my first post. HELLO ALL
I work for a very large company that carries/manu. Focus parts. I know a lot of you run our parts on your cars now. What parts would you like your Focus to have that companies do not carry at this time. This is your chance to give ideas on parts to a multi-million dollar company. We care about what customers think and love to hear your feedback.
Thanks,
Jon

Whatever you think the market needs. I know Turbo/SC for SVT but the market is not large enough for it at this time. But, if someone has a good idea on interior/ext/engine please let me know and I will pass it along in the next business meeting.

Euro parts is key.

^^ Exactly. We also need annodized dress up items that don't change color. Like the PS and Oil Caps from FC, the black ones purple under the heat. Additionally, if there were a company out there that could make an affordable, euro style shift knob set-up for the ATX Foci with the OD button, they'd make a killing.

Am not a tire company no..LOL We have nitto 555R in 245/45/17. That is pretty large for a focus yes..
I looked at some of the euro parts like the seperate air intake system. The interior parts are not interchangable.

I'd like to see:

Parts from a website that the company can actually provide, unlike Ford Racing, where 1/3 items in unavailable after a couple of weeks of limbo after ordering.

Better quality.

Here's my list:

- A simple, “easy” to install, "SVT like" rear disk brakes conversion kit for around 300$ - 350$.

- A head rest with a “hole” in it, made of the same tissue material as the stock seats. I found them more attractive than the stock big block. I would pay 70$ for a pair.

- A two seater “rear bucket bench”. Something around 80$. (it's just foam)

- A “quiet” hi flow exhaust. I’m thinking of a system with a longer resonator. And if the tubing has a diameter of like 2.25”, why can’t it have a 2.5” tip? Instead of something like 3.5”.
