RRogers ...not just the engine-compartment...the ENTIRE Undercarriage (and baby, I mean every square INCH!)
(it) looks pretty much like an ironing board cover (silver)...but with a cardboard hardness

You can remove it now if you want, regardless of warranty. The aeroshield supposedly provides slightly better highway mpg, sound insulation and keeps dirt off the engine while making oil changes a bit more PITA.

With all that red dirt you have in Oklahoma, I think I would leave it on.

sailor What piece(s) are you thinking of?

The "aero shield" under the engine compartment possibly?

Cfcastro,

The remote start on the Focus is a factory invoiced one. Itís the same as whatís on Ford accessories website, so there will be a separate remote for it.

The Titanium is the Sport package, RAF_S197; this means it does have modified suspension components compared to the stock Focus. The only other one is the Focus ST, which is also unique suspension. There are three different levels: basic, Titanium, and then the ST.

Quantos,

They are located in front of the cup holders in the center console; not behind. This is the same as the 2012MY.

That's not true, the S and SE have the fore-aft cup holders in 2012, and the SE without the 201A package (manual or automatic) has the fore-aft cup holders in 2013. The SEL/ Ti in 2012 had the side by side cup holders with the seat heater controls placed forward with the dct or manual as the 5 speed titanium had the same console as the dct ti or dct us spec SEL.
