But only on certain models. My old MK1 SPI didn't have a reverse lockout collar but the zetec did, and my MK3 5spd does not have a lockout collar either.

The MK1 SPI didn't need a reverse lockout, because the IB5 transmission didn't have a reverse synchro. It's a bit of a mystery why the MTX75 in the MK3 no longer has the lockout, since all prior Focus models equipped with that trans did. However, it's not really needed, IMO, since it can't be shifted into reverse directly from 5th gear.

Just 2 question i read about here in this thread and cant find an answer:

1) How to change the LED color of the ambient light in my 2012 Titanium?
2) Where to enable/disable autolock? It seems like my car does not lock automatically when driving.

Edit: I answer #1 myself. I cant. Its always red only. No button or anything to change color.

#1, there is a button up near your map lights.
#2, IIRC. It's in the manual.

I have no button. I have above the head 3 button, none change the color of the ambient light.

In my manual is nothing written about autolock.

Note that I am in the Philippines, so my car is slightly different I guess.

Your Focus is Euro spec, so I think for Titanium trim standard feature is the red only ambient interior lighting. Check your local Focus brochure and see if the Multicolor LED interior lighting is offered as a stand alone option or some type of option packaged with other features.
The Multicolor LED interior lighting in Europe is offered as a stand alone option or in a bundled package option.
