Hey there! I purchased my first Focus today, a few hours ago.
I had a 2003 Audi A4 with 150k, and after upgrading the turbo to a k04, repairing a crack between the head and the crank, and countless visits to the shop, it finally threw a rod or something going 80mph on the highway. We had it towed to the closest shop, a Ford shop, and I had to get a car.
Initially I was a little put off, because I wanted another Audi SO BAD.
Then I test drove the 2013 Focus.
After numerous hours of taking back and forth, talking with the bank, I finally drove out with my snappy red 2013 Focus SE with 8 miles on it :)
I was all about upgrading and improving the Audi, I think I'm going to sit on the Focus for a while until I get used to it and break it in a little, but I figured I'd introduce myself and creep around :)
