Can anyone tell me if the sport package springs on the SE are the same as the springs on the SEL? Or is the SEL the same suspension setup as a stock SE?

$1 million question right there. I'm hoping someone can answer this, and also offer some info on the Titanium (stock) as well. I'm trying to decide between either a well equipped SEL or a stock Titanium, and handling is a major factor.

Fordparts.com shows 3 different front/rear springs - Front Springs: BV61-5310-MD, BV61-5310-NF, BV61-5310-NG; Rear Springs: BV61-5560-MD, BV61-5560-NF, BV61-5560-NG. They show 3 different front/rear shock absorbers - Shock Absorber with Standard Suspension, Shock Absorber with Touring Suspension, and Shock Absorber with Handling Suspension. They also show different front lower control arms - one for 15" wheels and one for 16" 17" wheels. Different (rear I believe) suspension knuckles - one for 15" 16" 17" wheels and one for 18" wheels.

Posted via FF Mobile SE and SEL are the same, Sport package SE is the same as titanium I believe and then different ones for the titanium handling package...maybe. Lol thats what I assume. Unless the se sport package is different from the titanium all together.

The regular Focus comes with a small monochrome information center in between the gauges and the normal radio.

A focus with SYNC w/ MyFord Will get you dual 4 inch color screens, one in between the gauges, and one as the radio screen. This version of SYNC, Gen1, is the sync that has been available on all the other cars, plus a few enhancements, such as being able to say "play song" versus "play track" and being able to directly start a phone call from any level of the system.

SYNC with MyFord Touch will get you the 4 inch screen in between the gauges, and the large touch screen unit as the radio with all the features of the new Gen2 sync (10,000 voice commands, including being able to set temp, change media source, dual USB ports, etc)

Then you also have Sync with MyFord Touch with nav, which gives you the built in turn by turn on a map.

Stopped by the dealer today. My "sport package" suspension is the same at the "S" model. NOT the SEL, NOT the Titanium. NOT even the standard SE! The "S"!!! So..... Does this mean the sport appearance package is a demote in performance?!?!?!
