Especially if the black interior is leather. I am so P.O.'d at Ford over eliminating the 2012 SE Sport Package for 2013 and requiring black leather to get an SE sedan with rear disc brakes, fog lights, and the trunk lid spoiler. I wouldn't mind black cloth, but would rather not have to get it with leather in any color. I'm still considering the possibility that I could be happy with a base SE, but at a minimum I'd really have to find a set of wheels like yours (for less than Ford charges for them separately). I doubt I could get Ford to build a base SE with them from the factory. (Not to mention the issue with not being able to use the factory switch if I add fog lights.) Were they hard to find?



You seem to be having fun keeping the rest of us in suspense about the mystery project. Since I had not seen them before now, I thought maybe it was the black wheels. Now it seems there's more to come. If I had a vote, it would be for an ST spoiler painted the same color as the car. And maybe the bottom panels painted to match, like theshrewz did with his silver hatchback. I'll bet no one has ever seen that in Frosted Glass. These projects have a way of growing, though: doing all that could lead to an irresistable urge to bump the wheels & tires up to 18", too. (I've been "clean and sober" on doing car mods for over 20 years now, but it will be hard to not fall off that wagon if I buy a new Focus like I want.)
THAT's my plan for this summer, getting the lower portion painted Frosted Glass to match the body color. I will also paint the silver spokes in Frosted Glass but leave the rim in silver. Should look good and not be the same as his car! (been accused of copying, LOL!) I look forward to his mod getting done. I had thought it would be cool but now I have to think of something else! (couldn't afford it any way......)
