Red Candy Metallic.
None of the new red candy codes have shipped out, might be early August before it's built.

Is the titanium ford focus hatchback supposed to come with a cover for the engine. Mines did not come with it but I heard on u tube it's supposed to. My salesmen says it's $80 if I want to order it.

I see nothing on the order guide on Titanium that designates it having a cover from the factory.

There is a thread about this in the 2012 discussion. Ford sent out a notice that as of May 26 it would no longer be standard.

21897 2012 FOCUS TITANIUM MODEL ENGINE COVER
THE ENGINE COVER FOR 2012 FOCUS TITANIUM MODELS HAS BEEN ELIMINATED IN PRODUCTION AS OF 5/16/11.
EFFECTIVE DATE: 05/26/2011"

It was part of the Titanium equipment at the start of production. It was deleted for all cars manufactured after the 3rd week of May.

Happily, I read that thread right before picking up my Titanium, and my salesman ("Spanky" Meeks) got the bits ordered for me on the spot, no charge, he's earned my business and referrals.

The 4 pegs and cover came to about $92.

When installing, the shorter (black) pegs go on the forward mounting studs, and the longer (white) on the rear.
A deep socket wrench makes the installation quick and painless.

Does the cover and mounting studs come under one or two different part numbers?
I missed getting a cover by about a week and I ordered my car in October, the first week the order bank opened! But $92 isn't as much as I thought the cover would cost.

$750 private cash - how long?

Took possession of my 2012 Focus on May 24 and turned in my private cash offer to dealer, they had me sign some papers regarding it. Said it would take 6 weeks but haven't seen it yet. How long is it taking for folks to get the check?

Still looking for a SEL hatch base model- in silver charcoal interior in the LA, Ca area. Willing to drive 100 miles either direction from 91607.

So far the dealer hasn't found me much- I don't think- he's not really getting back to me. First time I've ever had to follow up with a dealer. Odd. Hoping to find something before 7/31 so I can use the $750

Do you show anything like that in my area? Willing to add an option like MFT or moonroof- but would rather avoid if possible.
