Congrats on the buy! Perhaps its not a focus, but a proud Ford owner indeed.

How about some pictures, exterior and interior... I'm sure it wasn't easy making a final decision, judging on the thread so you may as well show it off some.

Aw man, I was rooting for a Civic :p I bought a 2012 Civic Coupe 5MT instead of the close runner-up Focus simply because it was more affordable. I hope to get myself into a Focus Hatch at some point in the future when the Civic becomes too small- and I am a F stockholder, so why not support my investments with another one? :D

Also I swear @MGMk3 I've seen your beautiful Focus around Pittsburgh... where are you located?

Hey I thought the 2013 Taurus was a mid sized or is it a full size? And good luck with your car. I like the Fusion.

EDIT: In all fairness, it was a mid-size vehicle until 2000.
