I read extensively here before even talking to the dealer and you've all been a great help. (Even the occasional naysayers who've added some reality checks to the overwhelming positive buzz this car does generate)...
Thanks for the props! The feature I like most is the SelectShift automatic transmission. Changing gears at the touch of a button is so exciting for me. Be sure to keep your Focus well-maintained with these: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conten...iceCouponsPage.

Nice psychedelic colors; this photo makes me want to watch Austin Powers movies! Get it appraised, it may be worth [pinky finger next to mouth] "1 million dollars."

As a previous Northeastern Ohio resident, you can't go wrong by taking your Focus next to Lake Erie and snapping a few stills. Your next objective is to try and get it in Cleveland Browns Stadium; this would be the ultimate shot!

Whoo Hoo this car ROCKS!!!!!!
As the temperature rises, the Focus remains cool. Getting 51 MPG on your Focus is ice cold! If it gets any better, I'll start calling you Ms. Freeze. Keep it running well with these: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conten...iceCouponsPage.

I'm REALLY enjoying mine as well, and I definitely echo what others are saying about it being an absolute blast to drive. I actually look forward to my commute now.
Press is more like it! This is a good way to experience the best of both worlds. Please let me know by PM if you've heard its last buzz.

I'd think you'd be bummed if your other half wasn't home, not your Focus! Since you've got it bad, gaze at this badge when it's not in your driveway: http://social.ford.com/grab-a-badge/focus/yes/.

The infamous runaway cart always finds its next victim! How did the touch-up pen work? If you need any paint, please visit our parts site here: http://www.fordparts.com/.

I'll be making another post in this thread soon; keep your eyes peeled!
