^ You are correct. The SEL comes with the integrated turn signals standard.

Hi Dereck, how long did it take to get your Titanium? Can you tell me the dimensions on the Titanium hatches, roof line? I am looking at putting roof rack on mine when it arrives and putting the yakima carrier we have on it if possible when we do longer trips. Thanks Ruth

My Titanium was schedule to be built on the 26 April 2011, and I received it on the 12 May 2011. The Ford website has all of the physical dimensions listed. Here is a link for the Ford UK website. The New Focus brochure shows different roof racks, etc.

Just took delivery of my Kona Blue SEL last night. Looks even better in person than on Ford's website...

We found the exact car we wanted in Kona Blue. It arrived at the dealership straight from the factory yesterday with 6.3 miles on its odometer. Needless to say we bought it! It must have been in the last batch to get painted. The sales guy said they would still have enough paint for re-painting fender-benders and such.

Ended up calling my dealer back on Tuesday when my salesman was there. Appears the other guy just gave me the wrong vin number. I now have my vin number and the window sticker is saying Kona Blue. For some reason, even though I placed the order beginning of April the build date was not until 5/18. Not a big deal, just happy that I should be getting the car soon at this point.

Awesome to hear that you got your Kona blue!

I feel bad for folks who are not getting what they ordered. While I don't blame Ford for the root problem (an earthquake), I don't like the way they handle the situation.

I was fortunate to have a very good salesman who worked like a dog to get a Red Candy Titanium for me at the end of April on a dealer trade. He flat-bed shipped it from an Iowa dealer to Ohio.

I am not happy with the fact that Ford does not use any type of 1st-come-1st served basis for these situations. He had initially found a loaded SEL in Red Candy that another dealer agreed to give us Saturday morning. We wrote up the paper work and I put down a deposit. Only to find out Monday that the other dealer had sold it to someone else later that day. Ford should establish a 1st come process to "claim" the car you want". Not just leave it up a to a mad scramble of scheming and confusion.

I think this is common with high demand cars. When I bought my MINI in 2006 - it worked the same way. So it doesn't seem to be unique to Ford. I think it is just the result of the high demand...which in the end is a good thing for those of us that will soon own one.
