Misfire, did you see it with your own eyes? I can't imagine them bringing two different seats with the same exact cover on it...

Thankyou RGonyer! My car is still a couple weeks away and I've been on pins and needles wondering about some things and your photo answers my main question.

The next one is - what does the Ambient Lighting control look like on the roof console?
Are the Visor Mirrors lighted?
I assume there is none of the following: Visor mounted garage door opener; auto dimming mirror; rain sensing wipers; Correct?

Mirrors are not lighted, and you are correct there is no visor mounted garage door opener, dimming mirror, or rain sensing wipers.

Who knows... could be something used on another vehicle that uses the same part. I see blank "buttons" all the time on various cars.

Yes, but usually the high-trim models fill'em up.

No way vehicle delay was lack of Recaro leather seats. We've been pumping those seats out like cray. Currently running 2 shifts for Focus Seats.

I'm dying to know!
Is the exact same controls as a base power focus seat

I'm not interested in what the controls look like. I just wanted photo evidence that the power seat actually exists! Until I saw the photo, I had to be satisfied with what I was "told" about the option being installed on the ST3, and I couldn't trust Ford supplied photos due to their use of photos of pre-production models showing items that don't exist in produced cars.

One example of something that doesn't exist anywhere except the 2013 Focus brochure - the printed one at the dealerships - is the photo of the ST2 interior with a ST3 cupholder setup on the console with a off-center power point where the ST3 version would have a center-mounted power point flanked by heated seat controls. That console as shown doesn't come in any production ST.

So when actual buyers show me a photo of something in a car they own, I can believe it's really there.

But don't fool people into thinking they will get something as good as the stock HID setup with something from the aftermarket. They'll be disappointed.
I believe everything from TRS is aftermarket, thus making it possible to correctly do HIDs in stock housings, usually cheaper than just a conversion kit too
