Do you have Carbon Fiber trim around your radio AND on the Shifter console?
Or just around the radio?
Reason I ask is I read that the Carbon Fiber trim is standard on the SE package but around the radio AND on the Shifter console.......I only have it around the radio and was wondering if maybe FORD forgot a piece on my SE??

SE v56 here... nope.. the "Carbon fiber" trim is only around the radio...

Although they are selling them carbon fiber kits for the interior... havn't checked the prices for that.

Only around the radio... and I wish it wasn't there. It looks cheap to me.

I agree 100%

the fake carbon fiber bezel if so cheesy looking. from a distance it looks ok, but in either front seat it's 'cheap-ness' clearly shows. it seems pixilated, like they used a cheap low-resolution printer to print the image.

aside from it's cheap look, it doesn't match anything else in the car. I replaced mine with a standard charcoal grey bezel (the one that comes with the "S" model Fusions) because it matches the rest of the car. it was less than $40, I ordered it from teamfordparts.com, but you can probably get it just as cheap at your local dealer. you can also buy the "SEL" bezels, but they would also look out of place unless you change other items with it to match.

...another option is to spray paint your panels. a good enamel paint (like Krylon Fusion) works great on the ABS plastic panels ;)

I have the carbon fiber trim around the radio. It matches pretty good with my leather seats. I don't think it look too much out of place.
