Best 2 things you can do for your SVT, in my estimation, is a lower trans mount upgrade, and a tune. Excellent bang for the buck.

What I Drive: 2012 Focus SEL Hatch - Blue Candy

Hello all,

I just purchased a 2012 Focus SEL Hatch today. I should take delivery Monday.
I purchased with the X Plan that Ford has so I got more car than I thought I would (meaning I saved $$$).
I got the SEL, Auto with the 303a package and the Premium package and keyless entry.
She's that lovely Blue Candy color. It came with black leather seating and a power driver seat (I prefer cloth). I think all I really need at first is tint and some in channel vent shades.
I've been lurking here for a week or so and have read many good, informative posts.

Looking forward to learning and sharing !

Whats up everyone? I just bought a new 2012 Kona Blue Focus S sedan, 5 spd today!!!

It is waaaay better than my outgoing 2005 VW Passat GLS turbo despite not having cruise or any of the fancy bells and whistles my previous car had.

I went 124mi and only used 5% of my fuel!

What I Drive: 2005 MINI MCSc and 1982 Mini

Hey all,
Just joined from Orlando, FL. I currently drive a 2005 MINI MCSc and have a 1982 Mini for the weekends. Love both of them. Over the years I've owned a ton of hot hatches, but never a Ford. There really hasn't been anything in their lineup that appealed to me. Any car can be made to go straight fast, but to me there's nothing more fun than throwing an agile car through tight twisties!

A while back I was in Germany, and a friend of mine took me out on the Nürburgring with his MINI. That's where I fell in love with the Focus RS. Of course the RS decimated his MINI on the open straights, but what really impressed me was that it didn't lose that ground back at the next set of turns. Not many cars out there that can do that, especially in this price range. I promptly came back to the states and looked to find an RS here. No such luck. Nothing even close to as agile or powerful. What a letdown!

Needless to say when I heard about the new "global" ST, I was more than a bit excited. While I'll still be keeping the MINI, I'll gladly be saying goodbye to my wife's Pontiac G6 when the ST comes out!

I'm glad Ford is recognizing there is a market for big-car amenities without the big car.

I will be trading in my 2006 MINI Convertible tomorrow for a Focus Hatchback Titanium. Even though I have loved my MINI, I am ready for an automatic (even if it is really a manual under the covers) and a larger trunk! Glad Ford has a car I will still enjoy driving.
