2) i prefer the looks of the sedan just a little bit more than the hatches. because it was less $ than the sedan was a bonus.

3) i like the idea of having a traditional trunk and just seemed to suit me better.

i do wish my car did come with a spoiler and fog lights, but it wasn't worth the extra $2,500 for the next higher options group... i bought it as an A-B car that gets good gas mileage and is fun to drive. and it looks cool doing it too...
You can always upgrade later to Foglights and spoiler

I bought the cheapest thing on the lot and love the looks over the hatch and it does everything I need it to. At times I'd like the hatch for functionality, but I'm happy with my decision. I only regret the dct.

hey Sedan Owners... We have some parts in the works, I need to hear your input on this.... Zetec S kit with Rear Valance for Sedan? ST rear Valance for sedan? Trunk lid with integrated more agressive spoiler?
