    New car 2012 Ford Focus Titanium with lots of options




    Picked this up to replace my junk 2001 Eclipse GT. Very happy with this car so far.

    So many options on it.

    Back up camera
    Nav.
    Self Parking
    Factory 18" wheels + sport suspension
    Ambient lighting
    Red and black Tuscany leather interior and interior colours
    Dual zone A/C
    Awesome sony factory stereo
    Magnaflow exhaust
    K&N air box
    Moonroof
    Voice activated controls
    Cruise control
    Powershift 6 speed auto manual (with Select Shift)


    Really liking this car so far. Not a performance car, but liking it all the same.

    Looks great! love the look of that shape focus

    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

    And if you can't fix it with a hammer,you've got an electrical problem!

    I am really surprised at the level of comfort given the 18" wheels and sport suspension. It is significantly better ride quality than brand new Jetta's/Passat's I've been in which are far too harsh/abrupt for a normal sedan.

    Don't mean to worry you but someone put the steering wheel on the wrong side

    Focus and Fiesta are sold in the US and are slightly different visually (bumpers and lights)

    It is indeed made in Michigan. I'm very impressed with the build quality of the car so far.

    I bet the sound system only plays Dr Dre and the car won't start unless the window is down, your forearm runs along the window seal and your head is bobbing up and down

    DEEEEEEETROOOOYYYYT !

    Lmao.

    It is actually well built. Slow (160bhp at stock), but good quality. It has a no key start button etc.

    So fat I have removed the snorkel that limits the volume from intake induction, and that should be freeing up some power as it is quite restrictive. I am hoping to add paddle shifters to it either from a Ford fusion or an AMG. Will be looking eventually to get an ECU flash that sorts out the the gearshift times and general performance. Well also be looking to at least get done lowering springs as the back is too high for my tastes.
