Thumbs up 3 Wishes

You are hand washing your Focus one day. As you are rubbing your favorite wax on the hood, a genie pops out of the tailpipe. He says "I am the Ford Engineering Genie, and because you freed me - I will grant you 3 wishes. Unfortunately, as an Engineering Genie, my powers are limited. I can only re-engineer parts of your car. I can't even upgrade them. For example, I can re-tune your engine, but I can't add a turbo. But, anything that you want to go back and re-engineer I can do. I can even give you a square steering wheel if that was your hearts desire!"

Ok, me first:
  1. I wish you to redo MFT from scratch so it works smoothly and flawlessly
  2. I wish you you to make the transmission work smoothly at slow speeds
  3. I wish you to make the rain sensing wipers actually work properly

3. Make the steering wheel tilt down further

I'm in.

1. Fix the floor vent from blowing on my feet when on other settings (I love my sandals, but my feet are either freezing or melting depending on the setting).
2. Include a 6th gear on the manual transmission (3k rpm at 70mph?!?! really?!?!).
3. Make the headrests in my back seat fold instead of needing to be removed to flatten the seats when lowered (my '03 Yukon did this, why can't my '12 Focus?).

I really like the car otherwise. Those are my 3 biggest "issues" so far.

A couple small ones that aren't deal breakers, but man they sure would be nice to have:

4. Make the sunroof open a bit further (I don't like the dew dripping on my head..Or add a small drip tray back there!)
5. Auto Up/Down on all windows (Is this an option on any of the '12+ Foci?)
6. Add Bluetooth Audio to the main "source list" in the Sync System. (I know, just use voice commands)
7. Retain power window and sunroof functionality after key is off until driver door is opened (My '06 Audi does this, as did my '03 Yukon, and '00 S-10).

Can I rub the hood 3 times and get nine wishes?!?!

My focus sport see in china has these features and also has the auto up/Down and sunroof open from the key fob only found it out the other day

My 3 wishes include options not avaliable in china. Those who know my car know I have the top of the line in china but some things are missing

1. Heated seats...not option here but want them
2. Pedals are too close together I think...
3. Ablitly to change the interior light settings

Dangit....My SEL doesn't have 'em

Can I add one to my list?!?!

What about Auto up/Down and Open/Close of sunroof from the key fob?!?

Another cool feature from the Audi (after a BCM flash) that would be AWESOME to have on the Focus. No more running out in the rain to close the sunroof you left open on accident!

You have an SE non sport, not an SEL. The global window opening and closing feature can't be added to cars that lack the auto-up down windows on all four corners afaik as that is a required feature for that to work on the European spec models.

It is allegedly available to be turned on in the IDS tool if your dealer knew where to look within their tool.

Actually it's an SE NON-Sport.....I'm a dummy, no idea why I thought I had an SEL there for a minute....Brain hiccuped I suppose.

Either way I figured I couldn't add it.....thought the Genie might be able to though :D :D
