My first Ford

Hello everyone, I'm the new guy, hopefully I wont make a fool of myself :p

So I'm finally getting a new car, about two years ago I got my first automobile. A Bimmer. I loved every bit of it; still do in fact. But it's getting old and I want to get a new car before it has a serious problem and I'm stuck with something I can't fix.

After browsing around the local dealerships and many annoying salesmen, I finally found the Focus. After doing some research I've decided to get the SE Hatchback in Stirling Grey, 5-speed manual with either a cloth or Tuscany Red interior.

I'm extremely excited and can't wait to pick it up this week!

Congrats! Please share pics, and if you have issues, share those too. Caution though, beware the modding bug.

Welcome, fellow 5-speed SE Mk.III owner! You'll love this car. It's a severely underrated little hellion. I know I'm in love with mine, a year after grabbing it. Have fun, and congrats! Be sure to throw up some pics of your new vehicle when you take delivery!

Haha, I definitely plan to share many pics, and I've got a video I'm planning to film with it too There will be no shortage of awesome media.

As for the modding bug, I'm a stock kind of guy and prefer my cars "O'Naturale". The most I've ever done to my Bimmer was add a 'D' (European region sticker) to the trunk.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!

I officially no longer own a BMW. The Focus I wanted was in a dealership a state over so I won't be able to pick it up until tomorrow. I'll be bringing my camera to take some sweet pictures 8) It's the 2013 Sterling Grey, 5-speed Focus with a charcoal black cloth interior. It apparently wasn't available in Tuscany red and the leather was a little above my price range so I'll be sticking with cloth for now.

While I was there though I noticed they just got a ST in stock so I got to test drive it a little. That thing... Flies. Definitely considering it as my next car once my lease is up.
