Meet the Hocus Focus

After reading the thread "What did you name your Focus" I posed the question to my friends on Facebook. One came up with Hocus Focus and it stuck :)

Some Details on the Car

I've had it about 30 days and it has about 1800 miles on it. So far so good and I am really enjoying the ride.

Tint: 35% around. None up front.
Painted the calipers last week: Dupli-Color Ceramic Spay Paint (thank you underbird!)
Wheel locks used: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CONU0G
Average MPG: 27.2

At this time the only other Mod I am considering are DRL. Other than that the package is complete.

FYI - If you like the look of European Plates and you have the Parking Assist package don't bother. That type of plate will constantly set off the parking sensors. There is no way to calibrate to sensors to compensate for the width of the plate.

The jury is still out on Sync. Having consistency issues with recognizing the phone after pairing, not to mention Bluetooth Stereo. When connected via USB I find that the time to index a device (iPhone) is way too long and indexing happens too often. Touchscreen response is slow and entering voice commands for navigation isn't intuitive and can be a struggle.

Here are the Pics...

Man, that car is CLEAN! I've got a Kona Blue hatch and I've also been debating on whether or not to paint my calipers.

Nice looking car. I thought about the red, but I wanted the Tuscany Red interior more.

For the USB sync problems, usually you have to reformat your library and tags to make it work flawlessly. I have a few posts on the subject.

Looks great, didnt realize how much a little caliper paint would bring the car together. And love the name and the song. Now you have a theme song for you car too haha

Spectacular color, and looks really good with the painted calipers and tinted windows. Very, very nice!!!

My friend has (not so) affectionately named my car the us. LOL

Make sure you check out my how-to thread on the LED DRL install. I still love mine.

Tony

Edit: Okay, so it censored my response. He named my car the Suckus, but instead of starting with as S, it starts with an F.
