SE Sport owners, sign in!

Now that Ford's changed the model lineup and removed the SE Sport Package, we're officially a rare breed!
(Along with those SEL owners, but the SE can now be configured to SEL levels so whatever)

No more 5-speed with sport cloth seats (and 60/40 split rear), leather steering wheel and upgraded suspension. In fact, our seats are now only available in the ST!

The only way to get rear disc brakes, a leather steering wheel and 60/40 split rear seatbacks is to upgrade to 201A, which also adds leather seats and 17" wheels and bumps the price of the car to $22,525!

I, for one, am glad I picked up my car when I did.

Here! Unfortunately the sedan doesn't have 60/40. However I have not found a need to even put the seat down in the 1 year 1 month I've had mine.

I wouldn't have had my Focus any other way but SE Sport, cloth, w/manual. The fabric on the seats grabs and holds so much better than any cloth I've owned before. I'm sooo glad I bought a Job 2 2012 and didn't wait 'til 2013!

I am very happy I got the SE I did and it's nice to see there won't be a ton more out there like it and it's one of the few times buying the first model year seems to have paid off plus the candy red is gone too.

Candy blue, SE Sport Package and 5 speed I wonder how many are out there.
I know of a least one more. I tested one exactly like mine but with the moonroof but I didn't think it was worth the extra money, was trying to get the car as cheap as possible. Now I kind of wish I had got it because of wind buffeting issues when the windows are open. It might have cured the problem.

It doesn't much, IMO. Actually, that is really the only gripe I have with the car--it seems like the b-pillar is located perfectly to direct wind right into the side of my head. The moonroof helps a little, but not really any more than just opening the rear windows. My '01 ZX3 (with moonroof) had zero buffeting, and the main difference is that the b-pillar was way back behind my head.
