I was going to say the same. The only car that I've driven (I didn't even own it) that had the side mirrors tilt downwards in reverse was a BMW and it's such a good idea. I wish more manufacturers did it. I also wish our drivers seats had position memory--or at least my 2013 ST3 doesn't. I don't have many other people drive my car but if someone does, they always move the seat and it pisses me off.

I miss having Homelink like in my old Honda. Now I gotta use a bulky garage door opener. And a locking glovebox would be nice. I guess the other "feature" I miss is the amazing visibility I had in my old 2001 Accord, could see absolutely everything out the windows.

It's easy to add a homelink mirror to the Focus. I bought one on ebay for $50 including wiring harness. Install is just tucking the wiring into the headliner and passenger a-pillar down to the fusebox in the passenger footwell. About 30 minutes work.

You found a black or charcoal one that fits the focus?

Auto dimming rear view mirror. Heated mirrors too, but that's an ST1 fail lol.

I have a Lexus IS with all the usual extras (tilt down/heated mirrors, memory seats, heated/ventilated seats, Homelink, etc.) Frankly I don't miss any of this stuff on the ST as I'm the only driver of the vehicle and I just don't need the additional luxuries. The ST is fun performance car, no sense larding it up with costly knick knacks.

Power and rwd. The ST doesn't have much of one and none of the other.

But I still have my old vehicle so I can take care of my need for power sliding. ~360/~430 to the wheels is fun

Round 2...

Not really a "feature" but my previous car had a big enough ledge on the door panel that I could use it as an armrest (at the perfect height too) even with the window up.

Gotta be the roof that disappears with the touch of a button like my mustang lol. But seriously I just wish we had a better exhaust note (or one at all would be nice), I miss the noises either my mustang or my Tiburon made when really opened up

The ability to hold down the lock button on key fob and roll the windows down as far as I want and release it and they stop. I know its a feature that can be added to the car via a bunch of fooling around and flashing etc, I've read the thread in the Electronics forum but the fact that it doesn't come stock that way is annoying. Also I believe the way it works on our cars even after you've enabled it is that it just automatically rolls the windows all the way down which still isn't quite what I want, I liked being able to roll the windows down about halfway as I walked up to my car.
