Any new 2012 Focus owners in the Austin, TX area?

Wondering if there are any 2012 Focus owners in the Austin, TX area that might want to do a meetup and compare notes/cars? I know it's still a new car and there probably not many of us in the area yet. I just picked up my 2012 Focus SEL sedan, tuxedo metallic black with rapid spec 303a package and a moonroof from Covert on 183 in Austin last Thursday night. It's a sweet ride.

The more I read forums like this, the more I realize how "new" this car still is. I feel rather lucky at this point that I was able to buy the Focus with the options I wanted basically off the lot.

I do like the dash, on board head unit and gauge cluster better than the Fiesta.

Saw one at night driving by me ... real bright and nice.

:) Probably wasnt mine....my '12 literally came off of the transport train in Killeen last Wednesday afternoon. Last Thursday my dealer went and picked it up. Only had 83 miles on it when I got it which is basically the trip down from Killeen.
