Hmmmm In Europe the BMW is entry level... either way who gives a F'k who has what... he must be here for a reason, maybe he has Focus Envy who knows who cares? I hope he does buy one for his wife. I love my SE Sedan (so guess not entry level lmao) to me the Entry Level Ford is a Fiesta, just as every car manufacturer has it econobox.

I have a 2011 Cadillac Cts and a 2012 Focus s. You don't see me running around acting like I am master of the planet for having an "above" entry level car. Maybe he doesn't really have the BMW and just wants us all to look up to him? That being said, I love my focus. I consider it above entry of most of the sedans out on the market. And I hope his wife doesn't get too mad that he gets a 50k car and she gets an "entry level car" what an embarrassment!

^^ I don't dislike the guy because I have no reason to, so take that in a playful manner. Maybe, he will be converted to the good side once his wife gets one. And the entry level BMW is still a nice car.

^ Hey man, no hard feelings.

Like I said, I never brought up the BMW. I probably shouldn't have even put that I have one, but I just reused my "name" from the Bimmer forums.

And I never once talked bad about the Focus SE. I'm pretty certain I'm going to order one this week, as a matter of fact. My wife and I each test drove one today and I was very impressed. I mean, it couldn't replace my BMW - but they're different cars with different "missions." I track and auto-x my BMW, not that you couldn't do the same with the Focus (I really think you can have fun hooning almost anything, and it's really about developing your skill as a driver) but I personally need RWD in my "fun" car. Not to say that the Focus isn't fun - I thought it was a pleasure to drive.

So whatever, I definitely don't think I'm "master of the planet," lol.

And my wife doesn't want a flashy car. I practically had to twist her arm to get her to test drive the Focus. But now I think she's pretty into the idea.

I've never bought a car without three pedals, and I don't plan to start now.


The biggest issue now is actually choosing a color. My wife is kinda going back and forth...

^^ She'll love it man, and as for the BMW, it's still a sweet car. My Caddy handles like a freaking champ, but I would never put a turbo or anything in it. I wanna sell it some day haha. I really appreciate the focus and how well it contends to the upper level cars. Ford really knows what they are doing. Lets all be certain to say at least it's not a prius or hyundai ( minus the genesis).
