You could get the signals on the mirror with the winter package on the SE whiich also made the mirrors heated and heated seats.

I didn't know that the integrated signals were part of the WP.











Well, expletives!

I've had my focus now for two weeks!

I am really happy with my choice, I was choosing between the cruze, elantra, 3 and focus.

I liked the focus's the most from the beginning, but I wanted to check them all out. By the end of it I still liked the focus the most.

It's good that you turned down the 3. At least for me, a car that looks like it was the slow child growing up is a no-no.

In 2 days I'll have had my Focus for a month. So far, so awesome. I continually find new things I love about this car, and it's the first car I've owned that I'm actually PROUD of.

Integrated turn signals were available on the winter package, but since the SEL and Ti had them standard, the winter package for these trims also added the puddle lamps to give it that something extra on top of the heated mirrors.

I have only had my car for around 43 days, and just over 1380 miles so far, and I love driving it.

I totally agree! More wheel makes it more stunning. Hmmm; I wonder if a different tire brand will be purchased too.

We'll take this! My Focus uttered these words to me the other day, "Sync, please say a command." This is how I know it has personality. The open-mouth grille helps too!

Woodsman and nhemti-

Congrats on your recent Focus purchases! A long and pleasant journey is ahead for you both. This may not be exactly what you're looking for in terms of customization, but accessories are a start: http://Accessories.Ford.com/vehicles/focus/2012.html.

The 1k milestone is an accomplishment! I miss my manual transmission too, but I'll experience the thrill of my SelectShift soon.

This forum is the best and it contains the most dedicated drivers! What are a few things you've discovered about the Focus that you didn't know at the dealer?

This is a weird parking situation; red & yellow next to each other? You need to put a fake coral snake on the ground for some kicks! I'm loving the yellow hatchback more every time I see it; you've got a beauty!

It may feel different; the seating position will be lower for you. Thanks for staying in the Ford family!

Spoken like a Ford rep! When I met my Focus, I immediately developed a huge crush. 3,500 miles later and I'm in love!

I'm not a Ford rep, I just did a metric ton of research and perused the order guide when I was in the decision phase for locating/ ordering my car.

Thanks to my grandfather, a Ford retiree I was able to order her on Z plan, and I got lucky with my timing as I was able to lock in the $2000 rebate, as well as the price of the car went down from the time it was ordered to the time it was delivered as Ford decided to make sync standard across the board (even though it was already standard on the SEL).

It's my first new car and so far I really like it, although I did have the issue with the Focus badge peeling off once so far. It took 3 or 4 days to have the dealer fix it, but most of that was due to waiting for the badge from the wearhouse.

I am frustrated by how careless other motorists and people can be however, as I've not had the car much more than a month and already she's picking up scars and bruises

Giving my Focus some nice upgrades over the next two weeks so enjoy these stock shots for now.



My Badge is pulling away from the center because I drive so fast.

Every time I think I need to do something to make it look better, I stop, look, and say Nope! looks good just as it is. All I've had changed is the windows tinted. i tried beauty rings, but with no center caps available, it's back to basic wheelcovers.

And it's just an S.
