I just bought my Focus this past Thursday and on Monday I'm taking it back to the dealer so that they can install a sunroof and spoiler. The problem I am having is that the overhead console with the maps lights/sunglass compartment/garage door opener thingamajigger goes back pretty far so they're pretty much planning on installing a limosine sunroof, which means that it's going to start
at about where the front seat headrests are. I wouldn't mind this so much if the entire overhead compartment piece was useful, but I don't have a garage, much less the need for that last compartment.
Is there a selection of overhead consoles compatible w/ the '05 map light? I removed the piece yesterday to see how it was all laid out underneath. Appears to be a held on by a metal frame (itself appearing to be easily uninstallable were I to pull the headliner down a bit). Is it safe to assume that if I wanted a different overhead, I'd need the plastic parts and metal frame and
a different headliner to compensate for the shape change?
boo hoo on me
