^hahaha. It's just as hard with Pitch Black. It's definitely a second job.

Wait, what wheels are those? Never seen them. They're like mini-ST ones.


And I think it's tuxedo black not pearl black?

Those wheels are very common, except that from 2012 they were polished aluminum:


Painted black:


And the new gunmetal finish on the 2013 models.

@ tex- did you steal my car? I have an identical one sitting outside right now..



I took mine home about three weeks ago, and I'm in love with it! My previous ride was a 2010 Sentra, and the difference in the amount of fun I have driving this car vs. the Sentra is like night and day! No droning CVT yelling at me, this car doesn't tip over every time it hits a crosswind, and the Sony sound system is pretty sweet too! Maybe that explains why I wanted to get rid of the Nissan after I'd only had it a year.. I have almost 800 miles on the car now, and every time I take it out somewhere, I learn something new that I think is the coolest thing in the world!

Looking forward to several years of enjoyment in this car. And also- the 17" sport rims are pretty freakin' sweet..

Just traded in my 2008 Sentra on my 2013 Focus SE and couldn't agree more.

Congrats on your new car.....but before you get too excited just wait til you experience the nightmare that I'm living with my DCT. This transmission is a piece of junk, my car has tried to kill me at least three times with it's drop-outs and jerky accelerations. My car spends more time in the garage than on the road, I hope you are one of the few lucky people who got a good car.

Just because one car has problems doesnt mean all of them are all piles of crap. I knew what I was getting into because a car is a big investment, and with a big investment I'm going to know that thing inside and out and pros and cons before I step onto a lot. It's also not a regular automatic transmission, I'm sure you have seen that on here. If you have had problems, have you tried lemon lawing it?
