I am starting this thread for the owners and enthusiasts of the SE line. The ST (obviously) and Ti are getting all the attention, though I think the SE is overlooked in many regards. I chose mine out of budget, however, even if I could have afforded an ST or Ti, I would have still gone SE though just have added fog lights, which I can do aftermarket. I like that the ST has turbo (which I had traded a 2001 VW Passat wagon with turbo). Except that is just another expensive part to replace when it goes out. It was going out on my VW and I was looking at $1,500.00 in parts and labor to fix it. Don't get me wrong, I love that extra boost a turbo gives you, though I am very pleased with the 160 stock horse power the 2.0L gives sans turbo.
There are so many things I love about my Blue Candy SE. Some just personal and some because of what I have read about the pros and cons of the ST & Ti.
Looking for others to share what they love about their SE!

I just purchased my focus on Monday and I must agree, there is not much of attention for the se line. This is my fist small car purchase and I'm impressed with the power and design. I did ask the dealer if I could upgrade to the sync touch and Sony sound system. According to the ford website you can have it as a add on to the se edition for under 2000(I can't remember price off hand) but he said those cars were priced in the upper 20s. I have the winter package with heated seats that I will love using in the cold winters. Love everything about the car and think the sync system is fantasic. Im not crazy about the sound system so hopefuly I can get something after market put in.

Kerry72, I have read that MFT is very buggy and lacks support from Ford or Microsoft.
Drumr90, I will put some up this weekend.
BTW, I drove all day delivering pizzas and my average was 27 mpg with a ride back home of 31 mpg. Ride home was on a state HWY with stoplights every few to several blocks.
So it is basically city driving. So far, very happy with those results!

One of the things I like about my SE is the polished brushed aluminum interior handles. My VW had chrome ones. I just like the fit and finish of them and the added strength.
