Post HOW Ford Should Build the Special Edition

Ok so appearantly we have seen so far that the special edition consists of a rear deck spoiler and maybe a couple decals... who knows what else?

That's all we have for now...

Lets all chime in and voice our opinion of what "WE" would like to see from the Focus "Special Edition"

4 wheel disc brakes
more power, a motor that revs to 7k, prefer forced induction
good 5spd (or better yet a 6spd)
good leather interior
nice gauges, that go past 140 lol
nice sound system, much like audiophile, with ipod hookup and subwoofer
nice suspension, roughly 1in lower then stock
HID headlights andfog lights that actually work
a color matched grille, and a good ground effects kit


i just want a damn base to work off of.

Thats not a base thats a whole new car, silly.
1- agree* higher rev's and around 170hp would be nice
2- by "good" make suggestions for improvment
3-agree* but the whole green thing is really popular and leather isn't very green
4-more of a race style gauge set up, explain nice
5-combo the sync with audiophile sytem?
6-explain nice a little further please
7-agree* if your going to give it to us make it worthy
8-please supply photoshop or pics of suggestion here, this is a matter of taste.

Please post pics and links to info you guys. If this is going to be a ligit thread for them to look at we need to make it as easy as possible for them to research cost and devolopment.

2. a limited slip would be ideal. but i doubt it. a getrag tranny mated to a d-tec motor would be a dream.
3. the seats from the green edge are made green and theyre incredibly nice. seats like that would be perfect.
4. i think something more like what the svts had. with a silver face and green glow.
5. bingo sync, audiophile, and upgraded speakers would be the shit.
6. stiffer springs, slightly bigger rear sway bar, better dampers. a lower stance and more aggressive stance.
8. color matched grille seems self explanatory




that kind of a lip kit would be ideal and the blacked out grille is shown here as well.
