von you should do like i did and go gloss with the pillars and handles. it makes a whole new look to the car. i Have piano black pillars and gloss black door handles now(= it definately makes the look. still have to do the mirrors though.

Did you remove the handles and pillar trim to paint them?
Any clearcoat? How is it holding up?

08' Coupe SE - no way would I buy an 08' without cruise control... I could only find two coupes in the area and one was a super base model and the other was what I'm driving now. I really enjoy the ambient lighting and sync, have not touched the Sirius stuff as of yet, never had anyone with it before...

Holding up great! And no I went the easy fast and highly affective way haha. You can't hardly paint the abs plastic due to it's texture even with adhesion promoter. Here's how I did it. Go to eBay, buy the chrome door handle cover paint them with primer then gloss black and as much clear coat as you want till you get your desired color. I don't know how many coats of clear I put on but it was at least 4. As for the pillars it's the simplest thing ever and it makes the biggest difference ever on a focus, it's as simple as this, there are piano black pillar covers made by cf design on eBay(: they look awesome and they are very solid and have not faded, scratched or anything yet(: here's a price point of view on the mod. Every body shop I went to was going to charge at least 250 just to paint door handles and that would require me buying the primer ones form ford which would be another 200 or so. So your looking at at least 250 total if you painted them yourself or excess of 400 done by a shop just for the door handles! Cost of the handle covers-$40 (: paint primer and clear was about 25. So I have 65 in the handles and the awesome pillar covers are only 38 shipped!

I've got your SES coupe right chere! It's mostly my daily driver solo or me and my gf, so the larger 2 doors is nice. The SES with the 205/50-16 tires and rear sway bar holds the road nice. Can't complain about it at all. Honest 33-34 mpg commuting, quick enough off the lights and through a corner to surprise people and plain enough to not attract the wrong kind of attention.
