ST2 Red Seat Inserts...what market?

I've been debating getting an ST2 for a while, but am starting to consider an ST1 instead. I just want the Recaros, and don't like ( or have confidence in) the Ford My Touch system they make you pick up for the Recaros with the ST2. After paying 27K+ for a Focus, you shouldn't have to deal with seemingly repeated glitches and system freezes. So, going ST1, I bypass the tech headache, but I'll have to find Recaros seperately. I've seen pictures of the seats with red inserts....is that exclusive to Europe or Canada? Do the partial leather Recaros come in all black ( black leather with black cloth inserts) anywhere? Thanks in advance for any insight!

I just picked my st up less than a week ago, have had zero problems with my ford touch, by the way the recaros are the only way to go, I went for the st3 package, I'm pretty sure they come in blue, yellow, and gray inserts

After having my MFT updated it's been perfect...I have a ST2 with black/grey inserts. I've haven't seen any in red.

Red is available in Europe; Canada I'm not sure about, but doubting it. As to why we don't get the red inserts I have absolutely no idea.

Since the MFT update, which came right before I bought my ST2, I have had no issues. Well ok...I had one issue but that was due to the screen / entire unit actually being faulty and just needing to be replaced completely.

After replacement, the system has worked flawlessly.

The only thing that annoys me is the randomly scheduled "Performing system maintenance" job that runs. It seems to happen at random times...no rhyme or reason as to when it happens....also wonder what the hell its doing when it runs this.

As for Canada, we don't get red accents. Or any for that matter. All we get is full leather.

Hm, that's quite silly. So Canada basically only gets the ST3 trim, according to ford.ca.

The seat frames are the same between the ST1 and the Reccaro's. you could likely buy the covers and foam through Ford and and recover your seats.

BTW, I have 21k miles on a 12 Focus SEL and they are some of the most comfortable seats I have experienced, the ST1 are the same. Unless you are planning track time IMHO the Recaros aren't needed.
