All you will need to do if you do move back is have the PCM reprogramed to meet standards. Easy fix. Just not economical for Ford to reprogram all the foci in states that don't need to be compliant, stickers cost way less!
My SEL hatch has been perfect! really enjoy driving it and the interior is so nice with the leather seats. No problems with sync recognizing my ipod or usb. just a great car all around!
