New 1st time focus owner

Hi all,
Just bought my 2012 Electric Blue Focus SE hatch w/ manual trans, sport pack, and sync upgrade. Love it so far, and still getting used to the gas mileage. It will probably see some tuning upgrades in its future, but for now just enjoying the car.

Real passion is older fords, so I have no idea how to even approach a fuel injected 4-banger with an ecu. It will be a learning experience for sure. I'm sure there's lots of info to be had here.

Here's a link to my old Ford, if anyone's interested:

I have been on this site for about 2 months now. I had a 2002 zx3 that I just sold to my brother. Had about 182,000 on it and still going strong. I just bought a 2011 Ford Escape XLT 4wd. This has been back to the dealer about 4 times. With that being said They gave me a 2010 Focus se to drive as a loaner while my escape was being worked on. I knew the first time I drove it that it was time for an upgrade. Posted a thread a little bit ago about buying a repairable 2009 Focus. The response was GREAT!! Friendly and everyone was willing to share thier experience with me. I am closing the deal on my 2009 Focus pretty quick here. I was convinced by the great response I got to my ad. I find this forum addictive and awesome. I jump on here several times a day just to read. Thanks FF!! Love the site.

Hey everyone! New here. Just picked up my Focus yesterday. I love this car.

Here she is: 2012 Focus SEL 5Dr, Group 302A, Winter Package, Sterling Gray, Light Stone leather.

I found the forum doing research for the purchase and then came back today to check out the 'how much did you pay' thread. I think I got a great deal! $18934 + doc fees ($529). I'm looking forward to being a member of the community.

hihi
names chris, I'M NEW. 20 years old. just bought a 2003 focus svt 2 days ago!
car is amazing, love it so far. Paid 6,465 for it. Has 105k miles, runs real smooth.
Has some minor problems from the previous owner, sunroof isn't working correctly, the intake is missing a few bolts (lol?) and the radio nob doesn't allow me to adjust anything. All minor stuff. But it's a great running car, I love it.
