My car was completed right around the end of November early December, and unfortunately mine is without it, and I would like it for the same reasons and logic listed above. I would also like the temp and compass... we've been trying to figure that one out for a bit now.

I don't have the button in my car yet, I just found that Focus with the button in it today while I was in at a dealer getting serviced.

The compass and stuff will be what I'll try to figure out next.

The trunk button is an issue because quite a few times I went inside the car without my key (key in house or something) then I need to open the trunk and realize dammit I have to go back into the house to get the key and push the button
same blasted thing has happened to me several times!

WOW!
I just called Ford about the compass/temp and this is what they g told me.
They basically said, you can get it installed by your dealership for free. But then it is considered to be a modification and if a problem is caused by this modification then it will void the warranty of the car..

WTF are these people on..

Now, I'm going to take the first part of that statement and hope that this is correct. If Ford has figured out a way to give the 08+ these for free it's fantastic news.

Now, no matter what a dealer might tell you, this won't void your warranty, that's ludicrous. I just want to make sure I read your words right, they can install the compass and temp on the 08s and 09s and will do so for free? I should call my dealer today if that's the case.
