Is the Focus actually new, like with delivery miles on it?

The only reason I ask is that those wheels are not available on retail or dealer stock ordered cars, only on Fleet/ daily rental car orders. It wasn't listed in any order guide in the U.S.

They were fairly common on European models however.

I do like them a lot though, but they are about $400 each from ford parts.

Nemesis, they aren't overtly rare globally, but in North America they were only available as an option on Fleet/Daily Rental SE sedans and hatches.

They were the standard wheels on the European Titanium models in the U.K. however. So globally they aren't rare, but on this continent they are rather rare.

Yeah if I could have ordered my car with them instead of the standard SEL wheels I might have at the time, but it looks like going forward that my wheels will be just as rare if not rarer since the standard 2013 SE alloy wheels are the 2012 SE sport package wheels.
