SES Dash Upgrade

I have a 2009 Focus Coupe SE and am looking to make some mods to the interior to make it look a bit nicer. This is what I am thinking:

+ Replace the SE black plastic passenger dash/ airbag and steering wheel sorround with the SES version which matches the center console. *See pic



+ Install Factory Ford SES Ambient Lighting package. I found the OEM kit on ebay for $70. (ie. Lit cup holders, trim and footwells)

+ Replace my factory rubber basic steering wheel (w/o controls) with a used Leather one from an SES with steering controls)

+ Add chrome Focus door sills

+ Replace Stock gear shift knob with heavy brushed aluminium ball (w/ gear mapping on top)

+ Aluminum pedals

What do you guys think?

I found the passenger dash on eBay and will be installing soon. I also am interested in a screen and am looking into installing the oem Nav screen from the 2012 focus. Do you think it would work?

I'm curious as to where you found this for so cheap? The only kits I see are $220. I just did a search and found nothing OEM for less than that.

Hey, first post here. I'm getting tired of the silver in my car as well. When I bought it, it already had 42k on it and some interior issues. There's little chips and spots where the silver paint has faded and been scratched.

I was wondering if you bought the dash aftermarket, or if you painted it yourself. If you did paint it yourself, could you give some tips? It looks sick.

Thanks!
