I'm not sure if it the same for cars as it is for motorcycles, but I know on my bikes, the tires that come from the factory are different then the actual tire.
So even though it is a Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tire, it isn't exactly the same as the one you would buy aftermarket. But either way, it is still a deal.

Someone correct me if I am wrong.

It's a deal if you look at it that way. Ford's getting their $ on the back end. What's the starting price of a Titanium vs SEL vs SE? See what I'm getting at ;)

It's worth it no doubt, but it's hard for me to look at it from a retail cost POV.

I just took delivery yesterday of an SE Hatch with the Sport Package and it really handles super. I don't know if there are any added supension tweaks to it but I think the 16" wheels, and rear disks are probably worth the money.

Posted via FF Mobile Mikey how much did it cost you out the door? Also did you get the manual or automatic. I ask because after pricing one out your pretty much in titanium territory. And yes there are supposed to be added suspension tuning as well as a few parts, such as the control arms are aluminum instead of steel. That goes for the titanium as well.

I just ordered a SE Hatch with Sport package, Winter package, protection package and keyless entry pad (my wife locks herself out of cars constantly). Total price without taxes was 20,499.00.

I saw one today in blue and I looked twice, no 17 times. I like the front end. Good luck with yours brother.

I paid $20,500.00 before taxes and $500.00 "Technology" rebate. In addition to the Sport Package I got the 203A Package and the Tuscan Red interior (it is very sharp). My dealer gave me a $200.00 "over invoice" price. I ordered on 2/22 and took delivery 4/26.

I picked up the Ti Handling Package because of the great price. Truthfully, I'm not itching to have to order all-season tires for winter, but $600 for all you get is a steal. On most other cars in the class, the upgraded wheel size alone would cost at least that. If you need a purely practical argument, the 5-spoke wheels should be easier to clean :P
