We ordered a Sterling, SE 5dr, Sport package, Manual, Tuscony/Black leather, Winter package, 17" wheels.
The car came in yesterday and we plan on picking it up Monday.
I am not real fond of the blue center caps on a black wheel. If our car was Kona I think it would be fine but with Sterling I am trying to find a black center cap.
I took a chance and ordered the black center caps from a Fusion Sport.
They are the same diameter, I hope they will fit.
We were worried about the interior but IMHO it's very nice.
Same with the black wheels which again IMHO turned out great with Sterling.
I would post pictures when we pick it up but I can't figure out how to post photo's.

Nice idea about the center caps, please let us know if it works out. As for images, grab a free photobucket account, upload the images there, then simply copy the IMG image code and just paste it into your post.

Thanks I will give that a try after we pick up the car.
My dealer checked and they had one of the Fusion Sport caps in stock, they ordered the others.
The Fusion cap has 8 tabs compared to 4 on the Focus.
The way it was explained to me is that the Fusion cap would fit the focus wheel but would not lock.
The Fusion cap has a provision for a "locking ring" they had some of these rings and put one on the Fusion cap. With this ring that cap now locks into the Focus wheel. I hope this explanation makes sense.
I think the cap looks great on the wheel. I will take photo's after we take delivery.

^Love it. I was thinking of doing the same things with the two vertical bars on the grille....black delete! The body color strip around the Ford badge is great. The headlights are nice too, although in that form the kinda remind me of the 2011 Civic.

do we call this grille mod ... opening the mouth? simple, but effective step up in look.

and the fog light detail as well. new viewers need to go back to post #226 to see a comparison car.

I saw a new black 4dr Jaguar yesterday .... driving in front of us ... the jaguar emblem on the trunk was painted the body color ... very "understated" There is a lot to be said for cleaning up designs.
