WOW! A dealer actually ordered a 5 speed Titanium for their lot?

Strange it may be, but I just looked around the dealers in my area again and it looks like it was the only Titanium (5 door or sedan) with a manual trans.
All of the other manual tranny Focus' listed (5 or 6) within 50 miles are SE versions.

Funny part is that mine is still listed in the dealers inventory.
Gonna have some fun answering anyone who comes around looking for it.

They do that all the time. "Oh, that one just sold yesterday. Let me show you this one here...."

Thanks for jumping in! To provide an alternative, the window sticker includes the build date too. When it's available, look above the word "BLEND" at the top. The date is listed as "YYYYMMDD." There also may be a character in front of the year.

It arrived at the dealer with 100 or so miles on it, and from what the dealer told me, it was likely picked and tested by Ford.

Awesome looking Focus! The time frame was blazing fast too. It sounds like David Copperfield dropped by the plant when it was put together.

In my opinion, white and black are the coolest looking colors! Although, keeping them clean is a different story.

You took it out on a few dates! Is the solar-tinted glass not dark enough for you? Inquire with your dealer about upgrading the tint. Look into these factory wheels, if you don't have them already: http://accessories.ford.com/vehicles...ls/wheels.html.

Congrats! A wait may happen from time to time, but it'll be worth it in the end. Remember to post pics in this forum and on our Ford Social site for all to see: http://social.ford.com/.

You'll be chilling in the Titanium soon. When you're ready for an order status update, shoot me another PM.

A new Focus earns a well-deserved kudos! You also deserve this badge: http://social.ford.com/grab-a-badge/first+new+car/.

This became an option earlier this year. Dealers are doing their part in making them more available. We're always listening to our customers and fans.

If anyone has recently ordered a Focus, please send me your VIN (or order # and dealer) and I'll be glad to check the status for you. Congratulations to all; thank you for your continued support!

Enjoy,

Thomas

Well I guess after owning 3 Mustangs, 1 Fairmont, 1 Granada, 1 Thunderbird, 2 Rangers, 2 Escorts, 1 Torino, 1 Lincoln, 2 Tourus', 2 Tempo's, and now a Focus I would have to be considered a little biased.

I was actually looking for a new Ranger but wasn't aware that they had stopped making them last year.
I thought they were still in production till this summer.
So I was looking at 5 liter STX & XLT F-150's instead, but I was not really happy with the idea of getting a truck that big, and thirsty.

The wife was pushing me to get a new car or truck to replace my 07 Ranger (115,000miles) just to play it safe because she wants us to retire this year.

If it were up to me I would have kept the 07 at least another couple of years.
If for no other reason than to see if I could beat the 302,853miles I put on the 01 Ranger it replaced.
It BTW was still running with no rust at all on it when the Kidney Fund drove it away.

So this year she got a new 2012 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid and I was 'supposed' to get a new Ranger.
But this Focus was just too much like the 'dream' Focus I built on the Ford web site to pass up.
Just wish it had come with the mud flaps instead of a moonroof, but those can be put on any time and I can get used to the glass roof.


BTW what with the badge's?

I know they do, but if anyone seriously wanted to, they could get them in trouble on a bait and switch charge.

Just for grins I'm going to check it every night to see how long it stays up there.

Edit; Oops, never mind, its gone.
