2013 Ox White black pack

I was looking for a car that would be comfortable during my daily commute, average ~30 mpg when driven responsibly, be fun to drive in the mountains, carry a couple of my kids when needed, and feel at home at autocross and/or HPDE events. The Focus ST seems to fit that bill, so I was planning to get one. I decided to consider the regular Focus due to the gas mileage and lower cost. I didn't think I'd go with a regular Focus until I came across this white one during my internet search. Here's the pic from the dealer website (Team Ford of Marietta):



It's an SE with manual transmission with SE Appearance Package (201A) and SE Appearance Black Pack.

I really wanted the ST but I allowed my 'inward adult' to convince me of getting this one... Better gas mileage, cheaper to buy and own, still relatively fun to drive, plus I wouldn't really miss the power and performance, right? Riiiiigggghhhhhttt, about that....

I was on the fence on the 'panda look', but the more I looked at it, the more I like it. I emailed the dealership late night on 10/18/2012, test drove it during my lunch break on 10/19, then took delivery on 10/20.

I took a quick pic after my first commute to work in it on 10/22:



I took several more quick pics after my morning commute later that week...





I'm an enthusiast, so I can't leave it alone. I began planning mods the day I drove it home. Here's my first one...

KEY CHAIN!!

Not really a mod (obviously), but my wife's vehicle is a 2010 Expedition... Very similar key. I can tell the difference just looking at them, but just to make it easier, I got this Focus key chain and an Expedition key chain.

Window Tint
It gets hot in GA; gotta block the sun out. Plus it looks good




That's it so far, but much more planned, I.E.:K&N Intake, custom exhaust (w race header MAYBE, if someone releases a tune), FRPP Handling kit, 18" wheels, speaker replacement (with amp), and various other stuff.

tint your tails and black out your emblems and such too to match the black and white theme. I think that'd look sick. or carbon fiber wrap the pieces. Aside from black/green or vise versa, white with black accents is my favorite

You will like the car, especially it being a manual. The black-pack look is excellent. I like it. Looks great.

Great looking car! I bought the same exact model myself and I'm happy with the looks. I was also on the fence about the ST but for the same reasons as you I went with the SE instead. I would love some additional horsepower, 50 more would be really nice, but I can live with what I have.

I also love the tint you put on the car. I haven't had mine done yet but plan on doing that in the spring. Nice job!

Good looking car. If I were to get a 13 it would also either be the ST or one very similar to this one. I've always liked the look of the white and especially those wheels. If I were to get a 3rd gen it'd have to have those wheels!

I like the Stormtrooper theme and maybe get some small black Empire emblems for those who know.
