The lower console looks to be identical, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't fit. Just like the headlights, it'll take someone with a fearless wallet to be the first one to try :)

PS: I'm saving up for the headlights. I'm 30% Honey Badger.

Aftermarket might be an option as well, RedlineGoods has some fantastic options for shift boots and brake handles.

I don't really think the leather parking brake handle being plastic is that big of a deal. You use it when you take the parking brake off and put it back on, not a super high contact area. The shift knob and steering wheel are high contact and they are both leather which is good.

Actually, the EU ST center console and US console are entirely different. The handbrake does look like it was the same from the previous model year EU Fiesta's if you got the interior upgrades. I think the ST1600 cars had the leather handbrake handle, and it does really make the car look upscale. In the winter, I would say the handbrake is a very high contact area for me, however, I have now learned to do that with left foot braking. :)

according to Timmo in the other thread about the handbrake handle, the EU one will bolt right in. There are places that sell it and will ship it to the US.

Actually I would prefer a ball shifter handle.
Does anyone know of one of these that will fit?

Thanks for the input RodMoe.
I would love for the brake handle to match the shift handle but,
I have decided to go with the COBB shifter handle.
I've done the metal ball before and frankly there have been days where it gets too hot to handle.
I also like the way the COBB works with the reverse lockout.

I did confirm today that the Focus and Fiesta have the same thread on the shifter.
I installed the COBB shifter handle today.
It is very comfortable on canyon roads where a large amount of shifting is required.

Has anyone swapped handbrake grips out for the leather one from the Euro FiST yet? I haven't even seen them for sale on Ebay.
