Mate,
About those polished alloys, I know of a focus owner on another site who purchased a set of the snow flake ones and had them fitted for 6 months over the winter months, I'll get some pics for you, the results of road salt and freezing conditions blisterd the chrome coating resulting in them looking like a broken mirror.
I'll search for the thread on another forum now and bring the pics to here for you to see.

mate said he spoke to his insurance comapny and it goes up by 5% only. I no there a company out there where you can buy the ford overlay but custom ones which you can design yourself on the website with differnt colour or writing on the badge, does anyone no the name of the company i cant seem to remember the name.
