I just got a 2012 SE Hatch 5 speed.

It's in the paint shop getting some corrective work on the roof. (Factory Clear coat defect).

I hope it's ready for the weekend.

Just got a Ingot Silver Metallic 5sp SEL hatch with 17" rims two weeks ago. Such a blast to drive, especially on the Sea to Sky highway.. much better handling and gearbox than my old lowered '01 Prelude

Hello, Just got me a SE 5-spd. Traded in my 2000 Nissan Maxima SE for it. It's a blast to drive though I'm playing the mileage game at the moment. I love seeing high 30 AVERAGE mpg and the bluetooth works great!

That's my Dad's new Titanium Eccoboost Excape. The similarities made me want the Focus though utiimately I couldn't get a loaded 5-spd and the new ST was going to be way out of my price range.

I beat my girlfriend in her Ti hatch DCT with the 5MT. It wasn't much, but I did.

I know I got as lucky as can be when I found my car. My mom was at the lot getting her SEL, and I decided to come look at the Focus. I had what I wanted in mind, a 5 speed Ti hatch in tri-coat white platinum. I wanted the handling package, too. Walked into my local dealer after having checked their inventory online, hoping just to find a manual to test drive. Low and behold, there was what I considered to be the perfect car sitting in front of me. It had absolutely everything I wanted and then some. Bought it the next day and lived happily ever after.

The end......?

I bought mine right off the lot here in Connecticut, but I dare say 5-speeds are rare as hell. I went in for my first scheduled service, and the desk tech was actually surprised it was a manual car (probably even more so considering it's owned by two women, lolz).

It's a shame there aren't more 5-speed Fofos out there. It's a great box. It'll be even better once I throw a Steeda STS and BLOX Type-R knob on. :O

I love my Blox Type-R knob. I'll be doing the STS probably after winter unless this winter is as mild as last...which I doubt will happen.

I purchased an SE with sport package and 5mt about two weeks ago. I don't know why anyone would go with the (notorious) automatic. The 5-speed is an absolute pleasure to row through the gears. I've owned 23 other vehicles (all manual) -- and this car has one of the nicest-to-shift manuals I've owned.
