^^^ Totally- all black front grille- and bring the headlights straight down. I would really love to see the new 08-09 tailights on an actual hatch model instead of a half- hatch model, I've been waiting for that since my 03 focus- oh well. Good job though FORD- still love ya!

Talk is cheap man.

I think the curve of the rear window is good, and would rather see the C-pillar shaved back to match it. Please do this so I can drool over it :). The thing to avoid is to not to have metal square out the rounded window like in the original Focus hatch, as shown in attached. That'll make it look too much like the new CRV, which is to say, hearse-like.


edit: This makes me really sad, but there's at least one doubter of the FF community:

'Also, the mysterious Mr. Tang--does anyone believe he's the (unpaid) head of "focus fanatics," some grass roots Kar Klub?'

I guess that guy just didn't want to hit up google before he crapped on the car.

Yeah, you're right. I don't particularly like my hatch rendering (certainly not better than a good-old MKI), but - since I was challenged - I had to prove that I could do a better job than was done on that FIRST hatchback Photoshop...

Maybe I'll monkey with chopping and lowering it a lá Egz next time I'm bored.
