I haven't seen many pics of 2009 sedans anywhere, so I thought I'd post mine here. The dealer had all the 09 SES w/ 17" rims, which is an option, and I thought it looked pretty sweet. My co-worker has a 2004 SVT and the rims are exactly the same. Still need to get the windows tinted. I think the removal of the fake side vent does wonders for the appearance. If I had the money, I'd get a 3dCarbon body kit!



A few shots of the LEDs:

I have been thinking bout trading in the ole SVT for one but I am not sure if I really wanna give up all the work that I have done on the SVT yet. I need another blank canvas. They look Great IMO.

I agree, the rims were calling my name. My wife and I were just looking for a fuel sipper to replace our F-150, so I was looking at the base model. But when I saw the SES with 17" rims, I had to have it. So far I'm getting 30mpg with 65% city driving, not too shabby.

I just can't justify a 5 speed while I live in Houston, I have to commute in this thing and I don't do stop&go with a clutch anymore.

The 09 coupe does look pretty good with that roof spoiler! I would have gotten it if I didn't have a kid on the way.

There is a button on the console, you press it repeatedly to cycle through the colors. I'll take a pic when i get home. I didn't even realize the car had them until I was driving off the lot...

Why do you think it is illegal? I wouldn't be surprised if there was a law limiting the power supplied to interior (and exterior for that matter) LEDs as they can get freakin bright.

If I had an SVT focus I would never sell it or trade it...

I love my ZX3 and really don't want to get rid of it but really really really want an svt... Once I find "The one"... It will never leave my driveway...

your 2009 looks good with the eap wheels and minus the chrome vent!
