Oops, I bought an ST

Hello all. I've been lurking for sometime as I have been wanting a MK3 Focus ever since it was first announced. However, the timing was not right so I had been patiently waiting. Then the ST's came out and I wanted that but the time was still not right. My plan was to wait until the summer when my daily driver was paid off so that I could keep it and only have one payment (plus my wife's as well).

So, on New Years Eve I happened to be on a different side of town and knew there was a white ST with exterior strip and grey wheels nearby and I wanted to stop the by the dealer JUST TO SEE what that combo looked like in person. When I got there I couldn't believe how much I liked it. Even my wife and kid liked it as well. I know some people may not like the stripes and even I was not a big fan at first, but they somehow just seem to work for me on white. (I previously saw the stripes on a silver ST and did not like it) The sales guy went and got the key to start it up (it was on the patio outside, between some other cars so it could not be easily driven). The first thing I saw was the odometer reading 4 miles. (I have a serious hangup on how many miles are on a car) When I saw that I had to have it and a few hours later I was driving away in my new ST.

An illusion it is. The blue oval is recessed; so from the angle it looks as if the stripes are off-center. I too, noticed it in the picture but I can assure you, it is quite centered.

How do you accidentally buy a car?

Oh wait I think I know, as I had originally ordered a 2012 Ford Focus SEL, and had driven it for close to one year. I had no plans to trade it or get rid of it for at least 5 years, but the itch to drive another ST again after a few test drives at some of the Ford events lead to me trading it away for a silver 2013 Focus ST. Lol.

Congratulations and enjoy the car.
