|Sonic_HedgeHog||To the OP... Post pics of your car and real data off the ETIS system or this is getting closed. You're way off on most of your assumptions and info.|

If you don't have this: http://media.caranddriver.com/images...s-1280x782.jpg
Then you don't have an SFE.

So you have an early build car with the shutters that was not an SFE, so the press materials were lying. Your car is not an SFE.

Gas mileage doesn't signify the SFE package either. I have the sport and can get over 60 MPG on a certain road under certain weather conditions. Don't expect to be able to do so though. That's accomplished after research and understanding how the car behaves with its fuel usage and knowing where the MPH sweet spot is.

|12FociSE||I have a standard SE w/ stock 16 hubcaps. The reason I asked is I have seen my focus get 40+ mpg even have a pic on my cell. I looked and saw the active grill shutters. I was just curious how many other owners have them on their trim levels. By the way my build date is 02/12/2011.|

The initial press materials only mentioned the SE SFE package as having the active grille shutters, however even at the initial launch it was not true. In cold weather states, and other locations on most models above the S during the Job 1 builds they started to roll out the active grille shutters across the rest of the line up.
So I never said it was impossible for a Job 1 SEL to have active grille shutters, but to assume it was an SFE based solely upon having them is a false assumption.
My 4/23/12 build Job 2 SEL has the active grille shutters.
