I flew to California two days ago and drove my tuxedo black Focus Titanium hatchback with MFT/nav, winter package, handling package back to Washington. It was entirely worth it. I didn't really like any of the other colors.

To summarize, my vote would be for tuxedo black above all others. I can't vote, though. :)
You are a lucky man. I wanted tuxedo black Ti with tuscanny, 401a, Parking package, winter package, sport package, nav, moonroof, and exterior protection package. It does not exist in the USA, so I had to order, then I found out tuxedo black is no longer available. I almost said heck with it and ordered a golf tdi with bi-xenons. I just could not forget how fun it was drive compared to the VW. Yes the torque was great but for the price of diesel I could not justify the cost and the 1% failure or TDI engines in the US due to impurities in the diesel fuel.
