No kidding! What gives? Ford offers options like this for all their models, even their trucks, except the Focus. The first thing I missed in my new 2012 Focus Titanium is a solid feeling dead pedal. My 2001 ZX-3 had an OK dead pedal. At least it had one. I thought there wasn't one at all in my 2012 Ti until I realized there was badly fit carpet under my left foot where there is a quasi-dead pedal shelf. To me a good solid dead pedal is one of my most important points of connection with suspension especially with 18" high performance tires and sports suspension. I made a dead pedal out of 1/8 alumimum sprayed painted with black truck liner and stuck to the carpet with Velcro. It has a good feel and blends well with the carpet. Best of all it, costs less than $15 to make. If anyone is interested I will post the template with photos and instructions.
