Nice! I think white is way underrated. At 16 I can see why you stayed inside. Dig the reflective deep dishes too. Velocity?

I think that White Platinum is underrated. Never have a liked white cars. The first time I saw a White Platinum Ti, I changed my mind.

Nice car! Did you debadge the rear yourself after you bought it or did it come that way? I noticed in the third picture the only thing back their is what I assume to be the dealer sticker but no Focus badge!

Nice, and congrats!!

Now I wish I found a white platinum - they probably hide scratches better, too.

This is a bit off topic, but it's about modding. It seems as though the mods & aftermarket gear are very limited on the '12 Focus.

The SE has it slightly rearward at least for the lower level one, its probably also the mini handle instead of the large one on the other cars.

Here is a reference shot of a lower level SE like the op's
