It really bothers me. It takes at least 6-15 secs to plug the key. That night I was with my friends and I looked really stupid. Maybe because I'm still a fresh owner of a Focus. Maybe!

OP, this is one thing that bothers me too. I've had mine for a couple weeks shy of a year. I always lean over to look around the steering wheel when putting the key in the ignition. I'd hate to scratch up everything. Whether those rings will fit or not, I don't know. Don't the models with the ambient lighting have LED rings?
It's not that difficult if you think about it. What did you do in cars before they had the area around the ignition lighted? I have several cars and never seem to have the trouble of finding the ignition point at all. I can go to any of my vehicles in absolute darkness and find the ignition in less than a second. And yes, I have driven the 2012 models already and still didn't have any problems.
