One yellow hatch stick with 16" wheels is in my 'area'. And I have seen it several times. I saw a yellow TI on the freeway with 18"s.
No other yellow Focus.
Plenty of other colors. Both hatch and sedan. I have seen one blue ST around in street.
I pay attention to the color, way more than the model line.

I think you have it. Rental car companies are not buying any Focus Titanium models, as far as I have seen anyway.

I see approx a 1/3 mix between SE, SEL, and Ti's around me but I have never seen another yellow blaze titanium.

I don't know if they are rare. But dealer around me only had 3 Titanium compared to around 20 of other trims. In fact I had to travel 45 minutes from where I live to get the car that I wanted (right color, sedan, right packages).

While driving around I see plenty of Focus's, but have yet to see another Titanium. In my townhouse complex alone there are about 9 other Focus's, but mine is the only Titanium.

Does anyone else consider the Titanium a rare site on the road? Maybe it's just my area, as I have not even seen a ST on the road yet.
Yes. As rare as a monkey scratching his butt...




















AND picking his nose...AT THE SAME TIME!

Seriously though. Here in OK City I have seen plenty of others. My '13 PB blue even has, unless the dealers traded out of state, at least 5 others in the state.

That's why we mod. To make our cars unique.

Just depends on your area. When I bought mine there was only a couple Titaniums to choose from and none in the color I wanted. Closest one was 6 hours away. Had to order mine. I've only seen a few ti models on the street as well. None of them have had the handling package either. With our climate though that's understandable. Not many people want to spend the extra money on snow tires.

I guess so? They are not common here, compared the typical Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Sonata and etc. At least it gives me a sense of good feeling with my DCT issues that I am not driving a cookie cutter.

I see a lot of 3rd gen Foci lately! Not too many Ti's, but it does make me happy that I should have plenty of repair/replacement parts later down the road. I have seen a few Ti's with the 18 inch rims and all I thought was: IT IS JANUARY IN WISCONSIN - WHAT, WHAT, WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?

The MK3 in Colorado are seen here and there but most are lower trim levels and in the year since I've owned one I can count the Ti I've seen on one hand and I've seen only 1 ST since they've been out. I've never even been next to another 3rd gen at a stoplight.

On the other hand with my STI I see several daily in just a few miles of a drive.
