I... for one am thankful... that I have a 2011... and not a 2012... most of the posts on the new model are discussion on problems. My second generation has had no... repeat no... problems in 24 months of ownership.

With the shorter days, I have not had the time for detailing, already have the oil changed for winter, my winter tires/wheels on, & the the summer set cleaned up in the shed.

I have always loved the look of your ride, she is very nice looking... what do you think about the 1.0 liter Ecoboost that is supposed to be available in the Fiesta next year?

Thanks rivie!!! And that is good to know!

The interior is looking sick! and I like the idea of being able to use the port with the aftermarket!

Nice second gen. Yours is part of a few that I really like on FF. Clean, subtle and not over the top. I agree with the comment that a lot of second gen owners are just moving up to third.

I've noticed activity slowed down a lot. I am used to a booming forum for my yamaha r6 with 20-30 new posts a day in most categories and a lot of threads that drag on with hundreds of pages updated daily.

This forum needs more 2nd gens!

Thanks dude! That is exactly what I was looking for, A simple clean look. It turns heads all day long but in a good way, not in a "look at that ricer" way lol

Also what many may not know is my focus was a SE(=
Not an SES, but you see it has color matched handles, color matched mirrorcovers, Dark chrome tails, among other non seeable ses modifications.

(= while many might think it is just a ses with a few additions such as the headlights, colormatched grill, 3dcarbon front lip,
it actually was a long slow process lol
