Honestly, the driving ergonomics on the focus are poor for long trips, the door jam is too high to be a comfortable armrest while having your left hand on the wheel, and the door armrest too low. This might help on long trips, but I would have to test it in the vehicle.

Only bad thing is this completely covers the aux and USB ports.

that wouldnt be an issue for the S models, we dont have any inputs in our consoles. its just a storage bin.

I seem to do fine with the console armrest, it's the driver's door armrest that doesn't work for me. I can't think of a way to fix that and not create an eyesore.

Yeah, I noticed that the door armrest is a little low, at least compared to my previous cars.

It doesn't bother me since I usually have my left hand on the wheel anyway.

And at the same time, the window ledge is a little high. Just my own preference, not a reason to hate the car, but when you're old and suffering from life's injuries, little things become much more of an issue. [V]

Are there other colors? I like it but I want it to match.

Link?
