As long as one comes with a turbo and 2 doors it'll most likely be my next car.

Thumbs up Yes, thanks.

My initial reaction is that I'm all over this but we'll see how it goes. Looks great up front and I've never been a huge fan of the vertical tail light design so I think this is an improvement.

That interior... Good gawd, that interior!

Think your estimates looks pretty good, except I think US market MKIII MSRP from price will be in the $17,000 neighbourhood.

I read on another forum, from a worker at Ford Michigan Assembly plant that Job 1 for the 2012 Focus has been slated for Nov. 10 2010

If they sell an SES version with ecoboost, it could quite possibly be my next car! After the idea of an Ecoboost mustang was killed, I decided I better wait and see what gets offered up in the Focus.

The minute I see an ecoboost option in this new model the zx3 is going by the wayside.
