I suppose that answers it, but the cars are built in the same sort of factory mostly by robots these days so although there will be minor detail differences (headlamps and so on), the bulk of the structure is identical, and the build quality should be fairly high across the board. I've had no major issues with either of my Foci from the Michigan Assembly plant, however the basic SEL did have a bit more issue with vibration under 32 F.

The car is still the same, and the engine is still coming from Michigan for the 2.0 L GDI Ti-VCT as this is the only plant in the world that Ford is currently building that engine at least from what I recall.

I know, I'd prefer to buy the European Focus.
In the U.S. no Focus S/SE/Ti comes with the engine cover anymore, only the Focus ST has an engine cover since 5/16/2011.
