1) Better or thicker paint on the front bumper. It's too thin, my 95 Volvo's bumper holds up better to rocks and other debris than this car. Just lost some two large sections of paint the diameter size of a aux jack two weeks ago and now it looks fugly with touch-up. (Silver is hard to even out, looks darker in most angles).
2) Make those rattles go away, especially the front doors near the speakers. Either add some foam between the panel and the metal of the door or just tighter clips.
3) Tell the people who assemble these cars do a better quality control, too many misaligned panels like the tail-light and the tail gate, or panels not properly snapped into place. We brought a 2010 Civic with few problems than this.

Dangit....My SEL doesn't have 'em

Can I add one to my list?!?!

What about Auto up/Down and Open/Close of sunroof from the key fob?!?

Another cool feature from the Audi (after a BCM flash) that would be AWESOME to have on the Focus. No more running out in the rain to close the sunroof you left open on accident!

You have an SE non sport, not an SEL. The global window opening and closing feature can't be added to cars that lack the auto-up down windows on all four corners afaik as that is a required feature for that to work on the European spec models.

It is allegedly available to be turned on in the IDS tool if your dealer knew where to look within their tool.

Actually it's an SE NON-Sport.....I'm a dummy, no idea why I thought I had an SEL there for a minute....Brain hiccuped I suppose.

Either way I figured I couldn't add it.....thought the Genie might be able to though :D :D

Technically they said they couldn't do upgrades though, and that's technically an upgrade to the sel/ti window motors and programming.

What I would want is:

1. Fix the seat heaters with my cloth seats, the spec says it should hit 125F on 5 and I'm barely seeing 80-90F at the cushion and seat back most of the time. Its only ever stayed above 100F when the seat was already over 100F to start with at least for a while before the hvac and the a/c cools down the cabin.

2. Fix the body gaps to be uniform and repair the paint damage that's been caused to the hood by the left front head lamp and the left rear tail lamp.

3. Make it so that the rear of the car doesn't get dirty as quickly.

1. Recalibrate the EPAS to improve road feel.

2. Offer a handling package for non-Ti cars. Stiffer springs and more aggressive dampers.

3. Get rid of the fake metal plastic bits on the steering wheel and center console. Make them charcoal color. Similar to the Focus S.
