I'm going on three months and enjoy every moment in it! Since we're proud Focus owners, let's use this to obtain info and service rebates: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conten.../Page/HomePage.

I see it's been around the block a few times. Remember, if the aftermarket products fail or causes one of our parts to fail, the cost of the repair and any related damages are not covered by our warranty. Have you purchased/installed these components yet?

...However, the one I got has way too many toys and is also night in day in how complicated it is from my Cherokee...I drove for an hour last night with the rear windshield wiper going, even though it had stopped raining, because I couldn't figure out how to switch it off! At any rate I'm very happy with my purchase and I'm excited to be a part of the Focus community!
Glad to see the minor wait was worth it! If you need to know anything about your Focus, please use this link to access the owner's manual: https://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conte...OwnerGuidePage. Details on the rear window wiper are on page 134 (Owner Guide, 5th print).

Don't be embarrassed; my passenger locked herself in my car for a few minutes. Thankfully, she noticed the lock/unlock button below the volume knob for the audio system. I giggled a bit, then was given the silent treatment. Remember this link to avoid dead silence: https://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conte...OwnerGuidePage.

Torque Vectoring Control is doing its thing for you then: http://www.ford.com/cars/focus/features/#page=Feature5. I don't even want to know how fast you're taking those corners; be safe out there!
