So maybe you can give a better answer to this.

Why cant on screen NAV be added to a 2012 Focus SEL with MyFord Touch already installed? From what I have been able to find by reading, if you have MyFord Touch, on screen NAV is already built in, but it is disabled unless you ordered the car with it (or if it came with it off the lot). Is there some technical reason I'm missing for why this cant be activated after the fact? I know the car has GPS already since I can get turn by turn directions through Sync Services. Seems like there would have to be a way to activate the on screen nav after the fact if customers were willing to pay for it. This is just more of a tech question then anything else. I have a 2012 Focus SEL with MyFord Touch and no on screen NAV (I use nav on my iPhone), so it got me wondering. :)

So if you dont want NAV or the titanium handling package, why get a Titanium? I have a 2012 SEL, black, leather, MyFord Touch (No on screen NAV, but I can get turn by turn directions through Sync services), Sirius, etc. What else are you getting on the Titanium that you dont get on the SEL?

What's this about a brochure discount?

And as a side note, does anyone know the ground clearance of the 5 door? Can't find it anywhere...

Exactly. Those are the only two things the Titanium has the SEL does not.

OK, here's my situation..... Car I ordered below is in. The following are the numbers we used to write up the order. 2 small dealer options aren't shown on the sticker. No money was deposited. Figures used were based on salesman's stated dealer invoice price, no rebates or down payment...YET.

Focus (C346N) VIN Number: 1FAHP3F25CL134651

http://services.forddirect.fordvehic...HP3F25CL134651

Order date: 3-16-11
Build date: 4-5-11
Delivery: 4-27-11

Sale price............................................. 20,709.00

Suppes Ford discount(invoice)................ 883.56

Base sale price...................................... 19825.44

State tx. 6%........................................ 1189.53
Docum. fee.......................................... 125.00
Tire tx ................................................. 5.00
Notary fee............................................. 20.00
Online regist. fee ................................... 15.45
Title, transfer, regist., & encum. fee ......... 33.50

Total cash or financed balance ................ 21,213.92


What is your opinion on this deal??

As an aside, I am eligible for the X-plan, have the $750 coupon, $500 financing and have $2K for a deposit.

Any advice as to how to get the price down a little more?? Or is this about it??

Thanks for your time!!

Brian

And both of those are things I want, especially the intelligent access.

You are forgetting the Sport Suspension (This is not the Titanium Handling Package). It is only available on the Titanium.

When you are xplan they are required to show and give you a copy of the invoice. Also doc fee is a max of 75. Once you print your pin you can tell them that. Any questions message me.

And the black bezels on the headlamps and fog lamps, different rim choices, and rear spoiler for sedan, not available on SEL sedan.

Also, the seat fabric is different when you get the cloth seats and shifter handle is leather wrapped on the Titanium with either cloth or leather seats.

Yellow Blaze tricoat not available on SEL.
