According to the manual, my focus has it. A light in the dash comes on when it engages. I asdumed it could be turned off like in other cars but so far I havent seen how. Kinda like the radio that has an aux button and shows iy is set to aux but has no jack. Or the power front windows and manual rear windows. Its an odd duck for sure. But so far everyone thats ridden in the car has had good thinga to say about it.

The aux jack isn't in the glove box? Must only be for se.....

I too have looked into aftermarket wheels and I urger you to also cheack out TSW and American Racing BEFORE you decide on the other wheels. TSW only offers four wheels in our bolt pattern; Carthage, Jarama, Silvertone and Snetterton. American Racing offers the Maverick in Anthracite or Chrome.

In my Focus SE, I can turn the traction control off through the menu on the screen above the steering wheel.

I have no way to know this but I wonder if there might be a USB mini jack under the console? there was a post on the non ti/MFT models that had one USB in the arm rest that showed there was a second unused one in the console accessed through the passenger console side panel. Might be worth a look for someone who doesn't have a USB. I looked at mine (SEL w/o MFT, one USB jack) and it does have a second one under there.

My S also has no way to turn off the traction control, and my MP3 jack is in the glovebox too. I just took the intake resonator off. It sure looks like an efficient intake, huge filter for just 2 liters of motor, and a couple of scoops bringing in air. No wonder we are getting 160 hp and 38 mpg.
