New 2013 ST, my first Focus

Here are some pics of my new 2013 Focus ST...will also add some more after from a really good detailing, protective wax and 3m clear bra and winter tire swap a bit later.

Me too! Reminds me of the blue from the SVT. The shop I went to in Germany for the detailing and 3m bra work wouldn't let me leave until they could take pictures because they loved the color so much. They upgraded the wax for the hood and roof without charging me too!

After detailing

Had the winter tires swapped, and went to the local SWIZOL place where they did the SWIZOL shield wax (with some great buffing work before hand) and had a 3M invisible bra installed. Also some great interior and wheel detailing!

Looks fantastic. I'd be hard pressed to choose that color or black on an ST3 if/when I end up in one.

3m is an amazing investment, I didn't cough the money up for one when I purchased mine and the winter was brutal on my front end... Didn't know until I went in with a chip filler brush. Beautiful car, and slightly jealous ;-)

Thanks, I dipped into savings to cover the 3M bra but I just knew that I wouldn't be happy after the winter if I hadn't done it. It is a little painful on the moneys though, just have to sacrifice some other stuff this winter ;) At least this car knows that it is loved!

I love this blue! I also looked at the tangerine and black, but the blue was what called to me.

Nice seeing another blue one! We have another blue ST1 on base as well as a white, black and orange ST2 each on base as well. I really love the blue!
