They should make good winter wheels though the tires might not be fully up to the task.
I would of used them as my winter set but Ford has the rebate on a new set of winter wheels and tires so I took that option as the price is right for them

Not sure what these pictures are actually from, but they say 2014 SE. Looks like the seats are a little different, and their is colored stitching on the dash, steering wheel, shift boot, and arm rest. Leather piping on the seat as well. The leather looks nicer on the steering wheel too.

EDIT: Don't think they are pictures from an SE. The vent surrounds have the silver trim like Ti models. And push button start, and they retain the "old" sync controls on the steering wheel.

And the Sony MFT, and the dual zone HVAC controls, and ...

Agreed, probably NOT an SE.

Those pictures aren't even of a U.S. model, six speed manual with the European six speed layout without being an ST shifter. Looks like a hybrid of different markets options.

Can you no longer get MFT and dual zone climate in an SE for MY 2014?

These cars are early prototype's used in consumer group & media events in Europe.
Video of the 1st image you posted http://bcove.me/j2ntha73

The 2nd image is almost what is offered in production as far as the seats with the white stitching , this is offered in what we call Individual interior package

My mistake, you can get MFT on the SE, but it's a $1400 option and requires the 201A package as well, so it adds $4100 to the cost. I really can't see why anyone would get that over the Titanium, unless you REALLY didn't want pushbutton start or dual-zone climate.

Dual-zone climate was NEVER available on the SE, (in US) afaik. It was available on the SEL and Titanium in 2012, and the Titanium in 2013 and 2014.

MFT is bundled with the Dual Zone Climate Control on the 2013+ Focus SE with 201A + MFT package or $2640 msrp for 201A + $1495 for MFT with dual zone automatic climate control in 2014.

Thanks suss6052 for keeping me straight (isn't the first time and I thought I checked carefully).

OTOH, the second point of my comment is still true - a 2014 SE Hatch auto with 201a and Sony MFT MSRP's for $24,150, and a 2014 Titanium Hatch auto MSRP's for $23,950 and basically includes all those and more.

Academic?

Just my opinion.
Even if that's true it may be good for bragging rights for anyone who bought a 2012 with the SE Sport Package, but for anyone like me who's thinking of buying a new 2014 with it, why does it matter? We don't get to pick between the two.

Even if I could choose between a brand new 2012 and a brand new 2014 that cost a few hundred dollars more, I'd still go for the later build. There's some value there that your comparison ignores.

At least I hope there is. Wouldn't it be great to have a list of all the parts that have been revised? Wouldn't it be great to know that all the revisions actually fix some problem, rather than introduce a new one?
