I tried to go to the Ford website and build a 2013 Focus that was as similar to my 2012 SEL HB as I could get it. After getting most of the things my SEL has on it (some could not be added or found) and adding them as options to an SE, the price comes out to be higher than what I paid for my SEL by almost 2K. I find it hard to believe that in order to get foglamps, I have to get leather. Leather is not a very good option in hot climates where I am. If I looked at the titanium I am stuck getting MFT and leather also. The SEL model from 2012 was a great model. It had all the stuff I wanted and no extra fluff that I don’t need. The only option I added was a moonroof. The problem with the TI in 2012 and 2013 is the lack of color selection both inside and out. In 2012 the SE and SEL have a great more exterior color options. The TI had limited selection in 2012 and again in 2013. Plus the TI only has dark interiors that also are not so popular in desert climates. Thank goodness for the 2012 SEL HB!!!
