Installing armrest in 04 SVT Focus

Is it possible to buy a used armrest out of a non svt focus and install it in my 04 ZX3 SVT? I can't believe Ford would leave that out on the SVT! Would this be a bolt in or is there cutting involved?

Well I havent even bough the car yet just doing my research first. Seemed kind of uncomfortable where to rest your arm. How is the 0-60 in this car? Decent gas mileage?

well when you buy it you wont worry about the armrest lol

the 0-60 is faster than what the magazines said.

get a test pipe and a full exhaust and i swear its atleast 15whp

if you can keep your right foot light, and shift at 2200 i see about 300 miles before the light comes on. city driving. alot of people see 250 a tank tho

i plan on doing short shifter, arm rest, aem cold air intake, tinting the tail lights and amber corner lights. really don't want the loud exhaust being 27 now. other than that i couldnt find a better car for the price. 04 ZX3 SVT loaded, mint for $7300 with 40,000 miles. I guess i got a decent deal
