What I Drive: 2011 Sangria Red SEL

Hello everyone. I just joined today and I am looking forward to learning new things about the cars I just purchased. I have a 2011 SEL that I bought for my wife about 3 weeks ago. Right now my daily driver is a 2009 Mustang GT. I am trading it in for a 2011 SEL identical to my wife's but a different color. Hers is Gray, mine will be Sangria Red. I should have it next week sometime. I will post pictures of both when I have a chance. I am replacing the Mustang only because I travel about 65 miles a day, and I need to lower my gas bills. I have to use premium gas in the Stang also. The other reason is my income situation has changed and I can get $200 a month off my payment by trading the Mustang for the 2011 Focus. My wife came out of a Lincoln MKZ, so this is a big change for both of us. But so far, I love the car. For a small car it has big car features and drives very nice. Again...I hope to learn more about it from this site.

Hey everyone!

My name is Chris, And I just signed up today as I just purchased a 2009 SES last week friday with only 8k miles on it. Traded in a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee for it. I'm loving it so far, Just put some tint on it this past monday.

It is Dark blue, 5 speed, and has the nice 17" ses wheels. I have some awesome plans for it, as well as a few questions.


My first question, why do some ses have the different front bumpers, grills, head lights and tail lights?

Mine has the chrome grill different bumper up front and chrome head lights and tail lights.

welcome to the site.

for 2010 and 2011, the ses coupes and ses sedans came standard with the european inspired front and rear bumpers with the darkened headlamps and tail lights

2011 blues! Maybe

Hi I'm Dano the newbie. I had gone down to the dealership about a month ago looking for the Fiesta. After trying to work out a deal within my credit score, the salesman suggested the Focus because of the great insentives, rebates, and so on. I now have, what I feel is a cool, old people car when compared to the fun models of the past. It is a 2011 SE with 201A upgrade. I would like to know if any of you out there have done anything to this otherwise great car. The only fun thing I've found so far is ny 5 speed stick. No one seems to want to mod it out. At least it should have some nice custom tail lamps. It's Sterling Grey Metallic with 15" alloy wheels and that's about it. I'd like to hear from others anytime!
