    Nah! the three bar grill is a powerful statement. As your photochop shows, in the small space left for a grill in the Focus, three bars would have looked flimsy and weak.

    Not your best effort Rules.

    I like it, FR - for one of the lower/regular trims, assuming it's more aluminum/brushed-finish.
    Imho Ford's gonna start 'playing around' with the bar theme...
    even more when more engines come online - hybrids, diesels, etc.

    lessee -
    alu 2 bar for 'S' fleet grade
    alu 3 bar for entry-retail 'SE'
    flat black &or black chrome for appearance pkgs
    chrome 2-or-3 for SEL
    painted for sport
    something else for GT/SVT
    maybe bars with an 'imprinted' name instead of the Oval (yeah, I know - been done)
    maybe something extra-aero for hybrid & sport/GT with different finishes for each...

    just off the top of my head - not actual suggestions

    It's a little less interesting maybe, but I think I do like it better.

    Liking the three-bar grille, colourless indicators and the alloys suit it.

    I hate everything else (that is, what Ford did!)

    I think, that if Ford put the three-bar, indicators, and alloys in; redo the rear end, and axed the coupe for three- and five-door HBs, this Focus would be a winner.

    It's just an opinion, though!
