If you've had your car since last year or even up until Mar 5, 2012 it would have been a Job #1 build. Therefore it would not be flex fuel capable, as they only made that standard on non P-ZEV Job #2 builds.

They made several improvements/ changes for Job #2 builds such as changing the fuel lines to handle E85, the E85 compatible power train calibration, the Four way head restraints which didn't start showing up until around mid April 2012, as well as formally standardizing the grille shutter system on all 2012 Ford Focus models not just the SE SFE.

Your Focus is awesome! It looks gloss black - which imo looks a lot better than that metallic flake. I see European headlights look better than U.S. spec headlights.

Anyone in the U.S. ever try to get those sexy Euro headlights?

Thanks man, our paint is called panther black metallic and might have less metallic than Tux IDK.
The headlights be pricey beasts I think. Bi-Xenon/DRL - I'm glad I upgraded to the Ti with them.

This is a week after I got it, decided to give it a full detailing myself as I thought the dealership did not do such a hot job.


this is last week after i got the windows tinted.


first photo was in the morning the other two in the evening. I absolutely love the paint on this thing. 6 years ago I had a grand am GT and the black wasn't nearly as nice as this.

P.S. saw you guys talking about flex fuel up top and I had noticed this earlier this week, that i rarely ever see one branded with flex fuel except for mine and a friend of mine that got his last month.

I did, they were only $650 but, getting the guy to ship here didn't work out.

Just picked up my SE hatch with sport package and 5-speed yesterday and snapped a few pics right before sunset. I'm loving it so far and I know I'll love it even more when I have to fill up for the first time. I'm coming from a 2010 Dodge Charger with a 5.7 Hemi and a 19 gallon tank, so the Focus will be a big change in fuel economy for me.

Anyway, here are some pics. Enjoy!

A few more pics after tint

Here's some more pics of my Tuxedo Black Metallic SE Sport after I de-badged it and had the windows tinted. Enjoy.
