I own a 12 SE 5-spd.

I had to order mine to get a SE w/o the auto. All the dealers around had S models with Manuals but no SEs.

I have had it since 1 week of March 2012, and have put nearly 28k on the car in the past 9 months.

the focus just felt more fun to drive with the manual, less boring and given my MPG exceeding the EPA I am happy with my decision even if the 6spd auto might have been more frugal.
