They are the same model that are discussed over on this thread... http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s....php?p=3874847

I have a hatch though, so the rears are a different part number.

Part numbers:
Front mudflaps: BM5Z-16A550-C
Rear mudflaps: BM5Z-16A550-A

If the car were any other color, I'd ditch the black/machined wheels for those of the SE Appearance Package - but I actually like them with Sterling Grey.

The 201A package wheels on the '13 are the exact same wheel, only with the gunmetal finish as opposed to the black painted wheel. The Gunmetal would look much nicer with the SGM to me than the carryover black finished wheels on the black pack, but that's just my opinion.

^^ I know they're the same wheel (which has now had three iterations on the MKIII Focus), and I FAR prefer the 2013 gunmetal version - but I don't mind the black ones on SGM.

Now, if I could convince the dealer to swap the gunmetals on for me - or find a current owner to do so - I'd do that in a heartbeat. But, with SGM only (and okay, perhaps white), I sure as hell wouldn't PAY to have the gunmetals over the black. Although I hate black wheels, those really work with SGM and white; the machined part helps the look a lot - mitigating the blackness.

But if I get an ST instead, I will be swapping the OEM 18"s for the 17" gunmetals as my full-time wheels immediately.

Why swap away the STs "immediately"?

^^ Because I bent far too many OEM SVT wheels in my day, and have never had to replace a single one after switching to 16" wheels with taller sidewalls three years ago - so I plan to follow the same formula with an ST (17" to 16" ~ 18" to 17").

Plus, I like the look of meatier tires anyway, and know those gunmetal 17"s would look HOT on an ST.

I'd gladly trade + add cash for those 18's. =D

That is a screaming deal on that SE you found. Add MFT with Nav, and I think that's pretty much exactly my car. Final deal on mine came to 20,200 after incentive, so add taxes title, etc.
