Purchased a Focus last week, I'm a noob!

Hello, all. I'm new because I just bought my first focus. Have been a SuperDuty guy for some time, but decided to buy a focus as a daily driver and save the truck for heavy hauling.
Bought a 2013 SE Sedan in White. I'm in process of adding fog lights (the dealer is being VERY cooperative since I bought it there) and I've put in a Pro-clip for my iPhone and a TomTom GPS.
Near Baton Rouge, LA. So far, 240 miles, test driving shows about 40.1 mpg at 55 (over a 30 mile span) and about 38 mpg at 65 mph. Will test out 70 mph this weekend driving to New Orleans. My point is, I am pleased with the economy so far, the major reason I bought the car!

Thanks, all, for the welcomes. I'm having a pretty good time here and over on Blue Oval. I'm hoping I get some good ideas here, because the aftermarket for a '13 Focus is rather abysmal, it would appear. I'm used to my F350, the aftermarket there is HUGE. Lots of toys from which to choose.

hello everyone! this is my first focus and is a 2010 2 door 5 speed with leather. looking forward to tuning and driving and not stopping at the gas station all the time. my last vehicle was a Silverado. I myself am a chevy lover but after looking at all the new chevy cars other than the Camaro and corvette they suck imo. ford might be getting a new loyal customer. however I have an 88 iroc and like the older chevy cars and trucks better.
