superhumanoid I have a pair of the black outer vents on my SE if anyone with silver vents is looking to trade! I'm not a fan of the black vent surrounds, personally. Paired with a black interior with black seats, it's just a bit too much.

CunFFS13 I had a dream like goes like this:
"As it turns out, a friend recently bought an ST which has the WHEELS I was after. He mentioned one day how we wanted the all-black WHEELS WITH HUBCAPS from the lower model Focuses since his interior was almost blacked out from the factory."
Ha ha ha ha ha
I know it was just a dream!

Pennut Just wanted to add this picture. It's very crude but I think you will know what I am talking about when you do the install. This was for the left side. When I was re-installing the left side, the area around the headlight switch didn't seem to be clicking into place. I was like, WTH? Turns out there are 2 tabs on the bottom and as I was pushing the vent in, the tabs were going below the catch. Almost broke them because they were getting bent. So after I pulled the vent off and tried again, I used a screwdriver to gently push up from beneath the tabs as I was pushing the vent in and that got them up over the catch as they were supposed to be.

Pennut Whew! So okay, got the vents today and they ARE the correct ones with the chrome trim. Each came in an individual box with the part #'s on the box as well as listed on the packing slip. Here are the part #'s:

Left vent: CV6Z-19893-HB

Right vent: CV6Z-19893-FB

Was $83.84 for both and then about $13 shipping (To Upstate NY ... may be a little more or a little less depending where you live)

Agghhh, I thought the SEL's all had the silver trim around the vents. Now after looking at some pics of some SEL's, I see that some (or all?) are black like the SE's. The website listed the vents as being for the SEL and Titanium models. As far as I know, ALL Titanium's have the silver trim around the vents. So if they are black then the website has them listed wrong. Would've been nice if they put a better description on their website stating which they were, silver trim or black. So now I am wondering if they are black or silver. Won't know until they come Tuesday (4/2). Geez if they are black, I'm gonna be . Anyone with an SEL have the silver trim vents?
