Welcome... Please don't be a stranger, there are tons of Fanatics on here that are very curious about the electric

Good day Focus Fanatics

I am from Cape Town, South Africa. I am on the verge of getting a Ford Focus 2.0 GDi Sport Hatch (somewhere in between SE and Titanium in USA markets)

http://www.ford.co.za/cars/new-focus/models/sport-hatch

My work will let me get a car that I can use for work purposes (2.0L engine or smaller) as well as for private use. They have a set list of manufacturers and models from which I can choose from and after hours of research I have settled on the Focus.

Nice benefits of owning a subsidized vehicle is that I only pay 19% of what the actual Focus costs plus my work will cover insurance and maintenance for 48 months and/or when I clock 75 000km official working km. I also get a fuel allowance for official trips.

I applied and I got approval but the only thing I still have to do is sign on the line for my work to order the car. I am not signing yet as I haven't test driven the car. Been trying for the last 2 months but there are just no demo models available in Cape Town. The next batch of Focus is on a ship from Thailand plant and should arrive in Cape Town on 20 November with the new models. I really want to sign but I can't get it over myself as I believe you need to drive it before buying it.

I love this forum so far and been reading many threads. Loving all the R&D. I already have an other modified car and I did R&D on that as well so you can bet I will be modding and doing R&D on the Focus as well.

Anyway let me get back to reading some more threads....

Hello everyone. Just purchased a 2013 Ford Focus Titanium, Tuxedo Black Metallic. From the Bay Area. My first focus and first new car, I was able to get it with the extended warranty. With all the technology in this bad boy I wanted to make sure that I am covered for a few years. Got this car last Sunday and just got all the financing taken care of today, so I officially have this car. Loving everything about this car, having a blast trying to learn everything.

I've been stalking for months. I signed up months ago and have yet to say hi.

Hi! :)

I picked up a white '12 Titanium hatchback with all the goodies. I just hit 6.5k this weekend. I have loved every minute of it. There are some oddities with the Sync...but I expected that. No mods yet but I am in need of a new wheel

Yeah, Imma .

I also ride a white Honda Fury with a few mods. Lovelovelove riding that thing.

That's it. Cheers peeps :)
