Ya it sucks that the North American markets aren't able to buy the diesel that Europe gets, because I would buy that exact car. I'm pretty damn jealous. Chevrolet is apparently going to offer a diesel powered Cruz to the NA markets, I hope Ford follows that and offers us the diesel Focus.

Wow, those rims look great, at least from those angles. Do you have any pictures of the whole car straight from the side?

Here are some quick and easy things I know of, follow or ignore as you like:

-Blacking out the chrome grill and window trim has become common
-Black rear badges
-Stealth turn signal bulbs
-Black fog light bezels

Thanks for all the positive comments guys... I'd love to have MyFord Touch! so I guess the grass is always greener...

ChickenMuffin, I got the radio from a Breakers... I really wanted the Sony system, and was disappointed it wasn't an option from new... so I got onto a breaker, and managed to find one at a reasonable price. Following your how to ;) the whole thing took an hour or so to completely facelift. All just plug and play :)

Here's another pic of the car and alloys from a straight on angle. (well... as straight on an angle I can get without climbing on top of my neighbours car!!)



oh, and another thing i went for was an illuminated gear knob... I think it looks 'the nuts'... lol Leather at the back, and then the same blue as the rest of the interior.



Cheers for the suggestions Twenty... I like the idea of contrasting Black and White... something I may well look at doing in the (near) future!

+1 for blacking out the fog light bezels. I used some Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy (black, of course) to black mine out and they turned out great. It really helps the appearance of the car, since the chrome looks very cheap. My car is a tux black but I think it will look great on yours too.
