No it's just you, your going CRAZY!!!! :P Nah the cars your seeing have changed their's for a set of clear ones. You can get them aftermarket for about $30-$40 each or buy a genuine set for a little over $100 per indicator. Definately a worthwhile mod and something ford SHOULD have brought out standard :P

i agree modicoat would look good but ffs its an ea it would cost a quarter of the cars value!... fake woodgrain looks so cheap and out of date.. like u se on cheap koren cars? notice its not on many luxury cars now?

i think its looking good! i reccon a chrome/black leather 4 spoke steering wheel would look HOT! some higher res pics would be nice too

the stuff that modi coat does is very high quality and if you chose the right wood grain will look very good. Ford still uses fake wood grain in its new fairlanes and LTDs. Mercedes and BMW don't use fake wood grain it is usually real and is still very common. what korean cars use wood grain inside?

Yer Modicoat does a lot of their business with Ford dealers, Emtech etc. They smooth and clean the plastics, apply the coat of carbon fibre/woodgrain etc and then finish it in two-pac clear (same as exterior auto paint) and then hand-polished. It's top notch, but to do the cluster surround, etc costs $450. Not cheap.

Maybe we could get a group buy? :lol:
