Just read this on some other forums. Be awesome if they bring them over un-americanized. Meaning, cheap them down from what they are.

More than likely won't happen. They'll have to refit the bumpers to meet DOT standards, so they'll almost certainly "americanize" the plastic body pieces to be longer and more angular, just like the pre-facelift US Focus. And I still wouldn't hold out for a turbo I-5 MkII ST...if anything we'll get a MkII hatch with the current ST 2.3 Duratec with styling changes over the "americanized" version of the MkII. Ford wouldn't want a second or third (if we get a turbo C30) turbocharged performance model built on the C1 chassis drawing sales away from the MS3 or C30.

I just checked the Ford Mexico website and they do get all the euro models. Maybe Ford should "clean up" it's lineup a little, well more then a little... Can't they just build the euro models over here as well, but unbutchered... I'm still laughing every time I get in my focus and notice the mega cheap shit used for those little overhead compartments and lights, jeeezz...

step 2. import ford europe's designers, follow their suggestions.
step 3. profit.

probably not that easy, but jebus. how long do people have to scream to be heard?
