car envy

I always read how most people including myself are jealous of the way the European focuses look! Do you think the Europeans are jealous of our focuses? The SVTand ZX3 here are different than the ST170 and Ghia models there! Do the Europeans try to order U.S. spec bumpers and lights interior trim pieces? I'm just curious. Opinions!

^^^I love your sig^^^

I wouldn't think they would... I mean really, their stuff is a little bit nicer than ours. I think they can see that just as well as we do.

i like the shorter bumpers on the euro cars, overall it matches the lines of our cars better.

People from Europe and Australia that I've talked to on here all said they thought the U.S. bumpers were hideously ugly and expressed their happiness that their Focus did NOT have them, the rear bumper on the ZX3/5 in particular. Plus, in most of the world the Focus is positioned as more of a mid-level car in terms of price and actually has features and trim that we don't have over here (since in the U.S. the Focus is Ford's cheapest economy car) like the cabin air filter and automatically controlled HVAC.
