I didn't like it at first and was trying to find a Focus without it.

I guess you can't buy an SEL that doesn't have it.

It has grown on me though, I liked it enough to specify my hood protector in chrome, but not enough to do chrome ventshades.

You can its called an SES. SES and SEL both have every option available pretty much. I don't see reasoning to get an SEL over an SES except the chrome vents.

I like subtle chrome, by that I mean oem piece chrome is the perfect amount for me. I'd love to find some chrome/highly polished wheels. Under the windows work for me. But when you start adding it around the taillights, and random badges, and whatnot, it gets to be an eyesore.

I cringe every time I see this... Might as well just jump into a chrome paint job.

//run if too much chrome
$yes=exists
If face(yes) {
face+palm
}
else face+palm
